This is the second Weil Cornell GI doctor I have seen. This experience was far better than the first. Dr. Shukla was professional and polite. I felt very comfortable. He was concerned and restored my faith in the doctor patient relationship. He clearly understands that health care is a partnership.

Dr Parul Shukla is an excellent physician and surgeon. He is an expert in his field, and also a very compassionate person. I brought my husband to Dr Shukla, who quickly diagnosed that my husband needed emergency treatment. Dr Shukla and his staff arranged for immediate admission to Weill Cornell NY Hospital. Surgery was performed by Dr Shukla the next day. After several more days of inpatient care, my husband was 100% better. We are so grateful to Dr Shukla for taking such good care of my husband. I truly believe that Dr Shukla saved his life. I highly recommend Dr Shukla for his great expertise and his kindness. You would be very fortunate to have him as your doctor.
