I was sooo dissapointed! I had seen Dr S a number of years ago and loved her! This time i felt like i taking up her valuable time. NO thanks i will look for another physician. (I have worked as an RN all my working life, and know what docs should be like! Also, very unfriendly receptionist. (she belongs working in the medical records department) MA that took HX was great.Pleasant, bright, took time couldn't have been better thanks

Lovely Doctor.. Went approx. 3 years ago for a colonoscopy & endoscopy... Did not like having the procedures at Boynton Beach outpatient...Check in desk made me nervous...Did not expect to pay $500.00 as an outpatient...The gentlemen was curt... Once inside nurses were efficient & nice..

The outpatient facility Dr. Shanmugan uses in Boynton Beach has one of the most caring and courtious staff I have come across in a long time. Robert & Rose were specifically special. They put me at ease and gave me their undivided attention. It's refreshing to find such dedicated individuals today in the medical profession. Dr. Shanmugam is wonderful and surrounds herself with capable and caring people.

I had recently moved to Florida when my insurance company recommended her. There's never a long wait for an appointment, nor to see the Dr once you get there. I get great advice as well as medical service. The staff is courteous, efficient, and friendly. Dr Shanmugam is the best.
