    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!

    Didn't even talk with him about anything. Had an MRI done and he didn't even take out the xrays to discuss the results. I think he could have taken care of me better then that. He basically just shoved me out the door. Didn't even discuss the Medicine he prescribed me and what its even for. Hopefully he will call me back and do a better job. I'm starting to look for a different Dr.
