I have been a patient of Dr. Shukl's for many years. I find him and his staff very friendly, supportive and compassionate. I would highly recommend him. He takes the time to listen to you and is not only concerned with the physical aspects of your problems but how they affect you emotionally. He asks me how everything is going with me and is concerned with my happiness and how I am dealing with my problem. He has never suggested having unnecessary tests done. He is an excellent doctor.

I began going to Dr. Shukla after becomingvery ill with shingles which turned into viral meningitis and dealing with the post symptoms. He and his staff have been very helpful, thoughtful and understanding.

Not likely to recommend. The office staff is beyond horrendous. They never call back, mess up the paper work and in general treat patients badly. They act as if you are bothering them when contacted. Save you’re self the misery and find another doctor. You are already sick and don’t need more pain in your life. The doctor itself is good but that does not help with bad front office and bad management, the doctor must be aware of this and chooses to ignore it otherwise he needs to do a better job
Thanks for bringing this to my attention I will discuss these concerns with my staff We did have temporary staff help in May and June which could have caused you inconvenience for which accept my apology and please let me know if I can assist you in future, if you are still not upset about any less than satisfactory experience. I have been practicing Neurology for last 28 years and have been fortunate to earn love and respect from my patients and families over years. Thanks

Shukla diagnosed my Mother 82 yrs. of age. Told her, Hold out your hands. and stated, Looks good, are you taking your meds? Mom states, Yes. After a few minutes more he then asks if she needed a refill. I intervened and said, No and she has not been taking them. He said, No (startled) and asks her to hold out her hands. He then stated, You need some Xrays. You would be AMAZED how Shukla attempts to Cover Up after I went and had 3, other Dr's. Opinions. DISHONEST and DECEITFUL..!!
As respect and courtesy towards my Patient"s privacy , I would not divulge the diagnosis and details of examination.It is obvious that Mr Reyes is very upset about his mother's visit .I take pride in taking care of my patients and remain fully dedicated to my thousands of patients over last 28 years, who come to me and refer their family members,friends, church members and neighbours Because they get respect, caring, compassion and prompt attention from an honest and trustworthy physician.
