Prepared to write a review for Dr. Lakshmi Shukla, the physician who has been treating me, I came upon one negative review out of many glowing reviews. I truly believe reviewer has the wrong doctor in the wrong city and state. Absolutely cannot be Dr. Shukla from Newport Beach, CA. because he is THE BEST! Brilliant in his field, caring, kind, and a very gentle man. He is respected nationally. There are many Dr's with the same name. The NB, CA Dr. Shukla is THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!!

Dr. Lakshmi Shukla is the best doctor I have ever had in my lifetime. I am about 50 years old. He is a brilliant, very kind, intuitive person who has made a significant difference in my health and life. I will always be grateful to Dr. Shukla for all he has done and continues to do to ensure that I live a healthy and vital life.

This is a HORRIBLE example of a DR. and his oath. What Doctor refuses to take on a patient that has seen another Pulmonologist? Does he Not want to do his Job and look at your history? It is sad at the state of medicle care. Another example of a Doctor that does NOT want to work and Just collect MONEY! Enjoy the Golf Cource!
