Review for Dr. Sivakumar

I have been a patient for 20 years. i would not continue seeing Dr. Shutta if I did not think he was good. he spends sufficient time talking about whats wrong and he is a good diagnostician. i see a lot of negatives about his front desk crew. i think that they are fine.

Greg tobin Jul 09 2020
