Dr. Shivaram’s Reviews

November 30, 2023

Very impressed with experience of entire staff

October 26, 2023

Dr. Shiviram and her staff did a great job

August 11, 2023

I would recommend the physician, but be hesitant to recommend the office because the staff seemed unfriendly and uncaring.

March 5, 2023

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!

February 14, 2023

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.
