I am impressed with his knowledge and the ability to talk to the patient in terms easy to understand. Dr. Shantha is very precise in his exam and tests yet careful to do only the test that are necessary to determine your health issue and treatment plan. He is sincere, kind and compassionate and gives you hope for the best outcome.

I was seeing a different lung doctor, but after I changed to Doctor Shantha I am getting much better care. He takes the time to explain things to you and makes sure you understand. If you need a lung doctor then I would highly recommend Doctor Shantha for you. He is very thorough and really cares about his patients. I rated him 5 stars across the board. He has earned them in my opinion.
