I'm 72 year male I had some urinary problems and a friend of my son recommended Dr. Shannugasundaram.
My first appointment was so smooth though I was little tensed. The doctor was friendly asked me me questions to know my condition and tested me and recommended scan and blood test.
After the scan and blood test the doctor very systematically explained my condition and recommended medication.
I have the white coat fobia. But to my surprise in the second and third visit with Dr. Shanmugasundaram I was comfortable and this I can vouche is due to his friendly approach to the patients.
The staff at the reception was also friendly.
I wish him all the best and God's richest blessings to serve many with long life.

I had a very negative and bad thoughts about my health problems before visiting the Dr but after the consultation with him I kind of feel completely normal and better. The best thing about him is the way he treat is patients.He is so friendly in nature and gives us the freedom to explain our problems freely. He examined me completely with fullest care and answered all the queries and moreover I have never seen a doctor who is ready to spare so much time for a patient.He is really so kind and down to earth personality. I would strongly recommend him in my all circle and he will be my first POC for any health problems.
I strongly recommend for all your urology related problems, the way he treats patients are really remarkable make us understand the problem and further treatment process is excellent.
Thank you so much for treating.
I consulted the doctor for irritation after urinating and I had unwanted fear on this. Sir is very friendly and very experienced and he thoroughly checked and cleared all my doubts and fear. He advised to take only required tests* ** ****** ******* *** *********** *****. After testing, he said nothing to worry and advised for some
physical activities and prescribed me only one medicine. I felt very comfortable with him. He treated me like a family member. I have never seen such * **** doctor with utmost caring. More than this, he is a good human being. Now I am feeling very happy and healthy both physically and mentally. I will certainly recommend every one to sir for their treatment and speedy recovery. I am very much grateful to sir. Thank you sir.
Completely unsatisfactory. He was neither interested in listening patients problems nor asked about what problem you have. Just after entering he started asking personal questions ***** **** ********** ********** ** ******** ********* ** ******* **************** ******* ***** **** *******

I am Ganesan A V. I got difficulty passing urine for a while and Igot the chance to visit Dr.Shanmugasundaram, the best urologist in Chennai. From the moment I met the doctor, I were certain God had led me to the best hands.
From the day one, the expertise and the experience of the doctor increased my level of confidence.
I have undergone some Lab and other tests as per doctor's advice and concluded to go for a procedure. At one point I need to use self catheterization where doctor himself came forward to train me. During the whole procedure I experienced zero pain. Doctor's magical hands have relieved me of my pains.
Words cannot describe how grateful I am. You have a special gift as a surgeon and as a person. Thank you for taking such great care of me and giving me my life back. ** ** *** **** **** ****** * **** ****
I visited for burning pain while urinating. Doctor did urine culture and after few days of treatment, felt much better. Clear explanation about the condition and treatment. Thanks doctor.
A Doctor indeed is another phase of God who cures our health and guides us during the tough times . Dr. Shanmugasundaram is one such person . I have known him from the past 10 yrs and he is still the same simple person and most importantly a very nice human . I visited him to treat my dad ( currently 73 ) for his urine problem as he was suffering and till date he is perfectly fine under his supervision . He takes care of him so well and remembers his history and advice's him accordingly . Very down to earth . Easily reachable through phone even after consultation , pre/ post surgery .
I would definitely recommend him to everybody. We have a great respect for him and very thankful as well . God Bless !!!
