What People Say About Dr. Sam Shanmugham, MD

I first saw Dr. Sam in the hospital. I was given a spinal tap while there. Dr. Bob hit a nerve in my back and I am still having problems. Another hospital stay, they called Dr Sam again to see me. He in so many words thought I was crazy. That I needed to see a therapist. I was in the hospital about 7 to 8 times in one year because medical problems kept coming up. My thyroid was never tested. I ended up having a stroke and a blood clot among other things. I was diagnosed with Graves Disease.

I went to drS 4yrs ago. All he wanted to do was put me on medication. He diagnosed me with MS within minutes of meeting me, then told me a spinal tap would tell for sure. Spinal tap came back negative, he still diagnosed me with MS and told me to “pick a medication” After another neurologist decided to monitor me rather than put me on harmful meds, I had 4 years of MRI’s- I don’t have MS. SO glad I didn’t go on meds DrS wanted! Also would not release my SpinalTap records! Tried many times.

Tried to get through & not able to get an URGENT appointment - a referral to another Doctor. ONLY RECEIVED an ANSWERING COMPUTER - NO PERSON - NEED for more personal contact. He did not follow up with the referral and would not reply to message for my friend.

Dr Shanmugham began caring for me in the hospital as a neurological precaution for an unrelated illness due to my epilepsy. We immediately switchednto make him my primary neurologist due to his thoroughness and attentiveness.
