Patient Comments (4)
Pottstown, PA |
She did not do a physical chech nor adk any questions. She basically said ok, we'll continue with the current treatment. I was prescribed 2 meds by a previous rheumatologist, who was excellent but just to far to drive.
Collegeville, PA |
By far one of the best doctors that I have encountered. I had trouble initially getting into a rheumatologist due to the fact that the PCP that I had at the time refused to order the tests they wanted. I ended up as a pawn in the middle of two spatting doctors. I ended up waiting several years to get my arthritis issues addressed as a result of their arguing. I tried to contact several and the response I got from most of the offices was abysmal. Dr. Shanmugam had an appointment time within

I have referred friends to Dr. Shanmugam, and friends of friends. She is thorough, patient, kind and understands the suffering I endure. She researches ways to help manage my illness. I feel confident that she is doing as much as she can to help me on the daily.
in Collegeville, PA |
I feel Dr. Shammugan took a good amount of time with me to explain how Forteo works and how to inject myself. I felt I did have to wait a bit to see her. Her administrative staff seems overwhelmed to me with things to do, so she doesn't seem as patient to me: gets a bit grumpy. I find my phone calls are not answered quickly.
