I am very pleased to find Dr.Shanti. Prior to finding him, I could hardly walk and function. He made my life a lot more pleasant and comfortable. I am able to do things I was never able to. When I thank him, he says "thank God, I am His servant".

As I have recently relocated to Payson, I have seeing Dr. Shanti for pain management. I have several issues with my neck and have undergone two fusions. I have arthritis which presents its own set of issues. Dr. Shanti has been extremely effective in treatment of my chronic pain. I find him to be caring and compassionate. He takes time to know his patients, which I find extremely important in his treatment of his patients. I highly recommend him.
