This was our first time seeing this doctor because Dr. xxx retired. We loved Dr. xxx but we love Dr. Shivaram, too! She was very personable and spoke directly to xxx and very good about explaining everything to us!

Dr. Shivram does very detailed work. She has kept us informed of our baby's health and next steps through the entirety of his treatment. We always leave her office satisfied and trusting our baby is in good hands and has the best healthcare. Also, our son is always happy to see her, so that is a plus.
