"Friendly..efficient..professional are hallmarks of the office of Dr Shiva. He LISTENS which is lost art in the practice of medicine. He ACTS after getting the proper inputs. He follows up remembering YOU as a person and your medical profile. Very good interaction with this Doctor and office.

"Dr R is not only very knowledgeable in his field he’s also very compassionate, he treats his patients with great respect and care he listens to his patients before providing a course of treatment and he loves his work and it shows in how he practices his medicine ,very patient , very thorough, but most of all he listens to his patients . He’s a throwback to the days when doctors cared about their patients and not just what’s ailing them or the mighty dollars . His office is always clean well organized and compliant with all health protocols , his staff is a reflection of his professionalism and how to treat patients regardless of why they are there. Thank you Dr R for what you do"
