WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY
Dr Prakash is not only an excellent doctor but he is a partner in my healthcare. He listens, provides options and makes recommendations. He is the point person for all of my other doctors and health needs. His staff is available without extensive voicemail or computer systems, and they are caring. Awesome relationship!

Larry N.

Dr Prakash and the staff provide compassionate medical care. It is a friendly and efficiently run office. While you are there, the focus is on you, the patient and your concerns. They take the time to help you with whatever medical issues you present to them.

Eugene C.

My wife and I are both very happy to be patients of Sunshine Medical Center. We first met Dr Soordal Prakash in 2007 after my 84 year old father had a major stroke. Some of the other doctors had given up on my father, but not Dr Prakash. He solved a problem with my father’s anemia that had persisted for over a month and that allowed my father to improve considerably. Dr Prakash took great care of him for his remaining four and a half years.

Tom B.

Dr. Shanti Prakash is a great primary doc. She listens extremely well, is compassionate and thorough. The office generally runs on time which is great and respectful.

Janine M.

I absolutely love Dr. Shanthi Prakash, she's brillant, kind & listens to you. I just wish it hadn't taken me so long to find her. She goes well beyond normal medical care. Sunshine Medical Center is the best practice in Sarasota.
