    I highly recommend this incredibly skilled surgeon! I am a highly active yoga instructor and fitness trainer and was really beginning to think my career was over due to a severe disc herneation that was dangerously compressing the nerve roots controlling my bladder and bowels ( yikes), Every single part of the surgical and healing process has been precise and seamless! I am so grateful to Dr. Shrivastava for his care and for my return to the work I love so much! Endless thanks!

    LIAR will play down to get surgery, leaves patients in excruciating pain after surgery, serious incompetence in office, especially Barbara, left infected stitches in, unless you have a death wish stay away

    I had neurosurgery in July 2016 to have a pituitary microadenoma removed. He was very kind, compassionate and considerate, taking the time to go through the entire process and answer all my questions. You can tell he really cares, which I found to be such a relief during an otherwise scary process. When scheduling mistakes took place, he apologized, looking me in the eye I could tell he meant it. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.
