Dr. Shanmugam is more understanding than most doctors I have seen and most of all practical. He listened to my concerns and tailored treatment to my lifestyle very well. His staff is prompt with phone calls and are always nice and helpful. My prescriptions are ALWAYS on time after about 2 years...more

The office staff treated me better than this doctor. Sent by referral due to surgery complications. The man was negative during my visit. I should have walked out. Continued to out talk me and my husband. No wonder Care 1st dropped him. Very arrogant and non helpful. So sad.

This Dr is super inconsiderate. He let me keep my appointment to see him, only to tell me that he no longer accepts my insurance (care 1st) very unprofessional. He has had me waiting and giving me the run around on authorization for meds. for 3 months. So dissapointed and angry with Dr Shanmugam!
