Ratings for Dr. Sushama Shukla
I escorted an elderly friend to her appointment and was appalled by both the place and the 'doctor'. The woman's English is terribly difficult to understand and she makes no effort at clarity, just speaks louder. Dirty examining rooms. Vaginal exam for infection was done with no paper on the extremely ripped vinyl covering the exam table (repaired in places with duct tape so long ago it was curling off). Prescribed the same cream that had been given twice previously and hadn't helped (because her diagnosis was wrong). Very third-worldly medicine. After my friend spent a week in hospital due to faulty diagnoses, we got her to a new doctor. Problem solved.
Non english speaking staff. Double booked me for appointments outside her office, when I booked an appointment I showed up... I was not even in the system!!! She will just prescribe pills and won't even tell you what's causing your reactions! Plus!! Her half english speaking staff was booking a very private appointment for someone out in the open!! I thought that was confidential, I don't know the person she was booking it for, but I feel so sorry for her! All of us in the waiting room just stared at each other.
Don't waste your time! I've walked out after waiting over 2 hours for her. She shuts the office randomly even when she tells you to come in! I can't believe how terrible she is. She's burned me with forms for work not being there or the office is just randomly locked. Don't get jerked around by her, try to find someone with a shred of respect or her patients. I can't believe it even now.
She is my family doctor and i cannot understand her at all. She seems to get frustrated when i ask her to repeat what she says. At 6 months old she gave my son a sucker... Who does that??? And at his 1 year check up she gave him a hard candy sucker and made him eat it as she sat there and watched him. He dam near choked as it broke in his mouth. She should not practice on children. She wanted to check my sons stomach and for how she was holding him down she should have just used restraints. Was not impressed at all. Needless to say Im desperately seeking a new physician as I will never take my kids back to her!!
I had what seemed like a chest infection for 6 months and saw Dr. Shukla 3 or 4 times she kept prescribing me antibiotics and mentioned sometimes chest infection take awhile to recover from. Fed up and feeling like it wasn't getting any better I saw another Dr. at a walk in clinic. Turns out it wasn't an infection at all its asthma. Should have been simple to diagnos if any test had ever been preformed.
I don't reccommend this doctor at all. I don't know why they are so busy and keeping accepting new patients. The first time to see her is really a bad experience. The nurse brought me to a room "take off everything, call me when you are ready." Then the doctor came, she doesn't explain everything and trying to do female organ exam. It is such un-respect feeling for me. Even you make appointment, you still need wait till walk-in patients done. Then why need appointment? And when doctor see you, she asked you: what for you to come? But don't remember is you asking me to come to see you? Every time, she seems in rush .
