What People Say About Dr. Kavitha Shashikumar, MD

If I could give Dr. Shashikumar more than five stars, I would certainly do that. She is kind and personable and is an amazing doctor. Unlike many doctors today, she actually talks to her patients. After a rough patch with health issues that sent me to her, my first appointment with this medical professional left me knowing that someone actually cared about me as more than a name/condition on a computer. I am thankful she is my doctor. Also, Rene is friendly and efficient and is a real asset to Dr. Shashikumar’s medical practice.

The Dr. was rude, argumentative and challenged every symptom I explained to her. She insisted that I was fine after a back and forth conversation. Never evaluated me or tested for anything before coming up with her opinion. I think her behavior and attitude is not what you would expect from a health care provider and I would give her less than one star if the option allowed.

I was able to be squeezed in right away and the Dr was automatically concerned with my health. She was attentive and genuinely cared about my health. She went out of her way and I appreciate that. Her staff was very nice, caring, and made the visit where I was comfortable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS DR!!
