Dr Shohba as she is called might be a decent cardiologist, but definitely loses when it comes to doctor-patient relationships. She did my cath and I never saw her again while in the hospital. She met with my wife immediately after, but never me. In addition, she never came or sent someone to check me out. I sat at the hospital waiting until late in the afternoon of the following day. I had to threaten to walk out before another doctor came. Never saw her and she'll never see me again.

My husband and I met Dr. Shobha at JCMC in his hospital room. She took the time to ask my husband important questions about his health. She explained that she would be putting a stent in him and while she was talking to him he and I both seemed more relaxed. Dr. Shobha took great care of my husband and took the time to talk with me after the procedure. She has compassion for others no doubt and a great bedside manner. I'm glad that she was his doctor that can only be divine intervention.B J Wolf

She knows I am a retired nurse but still takes time to explain so that I can understand. I feel safe when I am in her care. When I am waiting on her and she is late I think...if I was in a crisis I would want her there; I would wait on her all day if I had to.

Dr Shoba is great, her nurse Casey is great. However the office workers that schedule appts and check you in are horrible. These ladies, for lack of a better term, are completely disinterested in being proffesional,competent or even friendly. Such a wonderful Dr and nurse, but you risk your life with the incompetent office staff.

Joseph Whitaker in Johnson city tn – Mar 09, 2016
I met Dr. Shobha in a cath lab at JCMC.I was terrified. She treated me with a tremendous amount of skill as a physician during the heart procedure. Also, very importantly she treated me with compassion. I felt like she truly cared for me and my life. Not only was she concerned with treating me as her patient she took her time to treat my family with compassion and respect. She kept them informed and helped them understand what was happening to me. She is 1 in a million! She saved my life.
