She had a lot of information about mammograms but didn't "tell me what to do" just gave me enough information to make an informed decision.

Shanta is amazing. she is caring and actually listens to me as her patient. She is always prepared and has read her charts, even reviewing notes from my other doctor appointments with other provider. She makes me feel like a person and not just a billable number. I've seen other NP's in the clinic and they are not as personable and caring as Shanta.

Shanta is one of the best care providers I have ever had. She took the time to listen to all of my concerns and made sure that all of my questions were answered. It was evident she made herself familiar with my medical history. I would highly recommend her to others.

This was my first appointment for my first pregnancy, so my husband and I were very nervous going into the appointment. By the time we left, we both agreed that Ms. Shanta was a superior health care provider, and that we were so lucky to have been able to be under her care. We were both very comfortable with her, and upon reflection of our appointment felt it was a shame that she wouldn't be able to deliver our baby in 6 months. That's a pretty profound impression after a single visit.
