What People Say About Dr. Shanti Nilakantan, MD
Reply Flag
Dr Nilkantan is the most intuitive Dr. I have ever had. Because of her consistency and compassion she saved my life two times and I owe her my life. She is leaving and I will miss her very much. I hope that I will be able to find someone even close to her expertise. She has been my doctor for 22 years.
