Patient Comments (5)

Amitabh Shukla is one of the worst doctors that I have ever had the misfortune to be referred to. He is patronizing, impatient, rude, condescending and unprofessional. The few times that I did go see him I had to wait way beyond my appointment time and then another 30 to 45 minutes in the exam...more

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. ...more

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...more

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

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.
