He did amazing things for me. My case was a fairly complicated and longstanding problem. So, I am incredibly grateful for everything he has done. I intend to and have already recommended Dr. Shanti to family and friends. I truly wish him the best in his future endeavors.


Dr Shanti is very compassionate and really cares. He was thorough and very clear in how I should manage my injury. I would highly recommend him! The staff was personable and helpful. And I have never had consistently short wait times with any other practice. I think the longest I waited was 10 minutes!


I was injured at work and hurt my shoulder and neck. I saw an orthopedic in garner for my shoulder and they incorrectly diagnosed me with a torn trapezius. Luckily my workmans Comp also wanted my neck looked at and Dr. Shanti instantly told me he thought nothing was wrong with my shoulder, it was all neck. MRI confirmed his suspicions. And after exhausting all other options first, we ended up going to surgery for ACDF surgery on my neck. Dr. Shanti is hands down the best physician I have ever been treated by. Bedside manner is above and beyond. I come from a family of nurses, most surgeons come to check on their post ops maybe once a day, or they just write orders for the nurses and don’t interact at all. Dr. Shanti came to see me three times in one day. Always asked how I was doing first, instead of getting his information from my nurses (who see also amazing -great job wake med cary) , we came to me and listened to my progress first hand. Answers all questions throughly, never makes you feel rushed, clearly a perfectionist in terms of my incision, manages my pain well. I’m healing well now and will hopefully get back to working and doing what I love very soon! I count myself lucky to be his patient. This office also has a great front desk staff. Don’t go anywhere else, this place is the best


Literally have had a “pain in the Neck for over a month – Doc Shanti and Lacey were professional and courteous. Listened to my concerns and together we came to a agreed treatment plan. They are the BEST
Happy Patient

I don’t do many reviews but I feel that doctor Shanti is well deserving. After 25 years of struggling with lower back pain along with the constant visits with doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists and the on going grind of trying to walk one day where I have to crawl the next day. I finally had found the correct physician who I felt comfortable with immediately.
It took just one visit and he figured out exactly what my lower back problem was and highly recommended the surgery that he performed.
Without getting into too much detail I haven’t had any back problems for the past 3 years now and I owe it all to doctor Shanti. I wish I met him 20 years ago since the surgery my life has been 100% better.
Highly recommend Dr. Shanti

I only have positive things to say about Dr. Shanti. Fantastic doctor, kind, listens, takes time with you and explains everything in detail, has a great bedside manner….just a lovely person! Fixed my problem 100%. Would HIGHLY recommend him!!!

I came to see Dr. Shanti as a patient after injuring my back. My pain was so severe I could barely walk without feeling the need to scream. 3 weeks after an easy surgery with Dr. Shanti I could walk again without pain. Months later I have little to no pain most days and have been able to get on with my life. His office and surgical staff were great to work with too!

Dr. Shanti is a very caring and gracious doctor. I trust him very much with my health decisions. Also, this is a very friendly office to come to. The staff is very accommodating and it feels like they do everything to make you feel comfortable.

I recently had a partial dissectomy for a herniated disc. Dr. Shanti was always very professonal, easy to get an appointment with and was able to quickly assess my needs. The actual surgery went well and overall was a very pleasant experience. I will continue to use him and would recommend to anyone with similar medical needs.


I think he is incredibly compassionate, knowledgeable, very kind, and listens better than any specialist I have ever seen.
