Dr. Shivaraju is a top - notch, knowledgeable cardiologist, caring & efficient. In my case, she referred me to an associate who ordered tests. I did try to reach her @ her Oak Lawn office once, & rec'd. a call the following day from X. I would suggest doctors have e-mail addresses for patients w/concerns between appointmts., as it is easier to explain in writing.
