We have been visiting Dr Sujata Shankar for the past three and half year since my son was born. We never had any bad experience. She is very friendly and knowledgeable. The only negative aspect is we have to wait even if we are on time for our appointment. We moved to a different state now and I really miss our doctors from New Jersey.

Arrogant, unhelpful, unorganzed, 2-3 hours of wait time. She forgot that she has listen first, advise second. Never a good experience.

Impresses you with advice anyone can give. Not able to diagnose or treat effectively even simple conditions. Will never go there again
