Dr. Shrivastava performed radical surgery removing my prostate and all surrounding lymph glands using the Davinci Robot. Got it all and I am cancer free! I wouldnt let them put me under until Shrivastava and surgical team explained the Davinci

The best of the best! He saved my husbands life. We were told by other doctors that his prostate cancer was inoperable because of its high placement. Dr. Shrivastava took 2 hours to explain to us how he would do it and why it would be successful. He was right. My husbands cancer was close to aggressive in rating. I am not sure there are many doctors in this area that could have performed his surgery so infections, no unexpectedsa, no problems.

An excellent surgeon. Dedicated nearly 3 hours of time listening to my questions and concerns about my prostate cancer. Surgery went well, excellent follow-up treatment. A dedicated surgeon who has done over a thousand robotic surgeries. Very worthy of your consideration.

Dr. Shrivastava is a master of prostate removal surgery. My surgery went virtually pain-free although there was discomfort as expected from the procedure and the catheter period. I was up and walking in the hospital on the same day and walked on my own out of the hospital early the next day. No infections or threat of re-admission, good recovery management relying on stool softener and Ibuprofin only, and removal of the catheter in one week. He saved my nerves as I learned first hand during the catheter period. Walking as advised by the doctor reduced the swelling in just a few days. Thank you Dr. Shrivastava and the entire Cleveland Clinic team.

Spent nearly 3 hours with me and my wife discussing MA case and our options. He was absolutely amazing. I feel very comftorble with him performing my surgery.

Awesome. Went to him for a second opinion after being told there is a mass on my kidney that needs to be removed. I had already had kidney cancer surgery and it was aweful. We went to him with 5 years of medical records and he explained that it is NOT cancer it is a complex cyst that bears watching, but not surgery. He is now my new Dr. I wont go anywhere else. I went to him twice and he spent at least 1 - 2 hours with us explaining everything. You will not be dissapointed.

He is the world BEST DOCTOR. My husband had kidney cancer so other doctors wanted to take his whole kidney. Dr. Shrivastava saved my husbands kidney about 5 years ago by performing robotic surgery. He is a very caring doctor, takes his time with us, explains everything. We love him due to his medical capabilities, knowledge, skills, dedication, etc. We completely trust him and if we ever need other surgery he would be on our TOP SURGEON LIST. We owe my husbands life to him. May God Bless Dr. Shrivastava.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer with a Gleason score of 8 indicating aggressive cancer. After intensive research I selected Dr. Shrivastava and the Cleveland Clinic because of patient reviews for Dr. S and the hospital. Dr. Shrivastava is known for his skill as a surgeon using the advanced daVinci robotic technique which allows prostate removal with minimal harm to the surrounding nerves minimizing the chance of incontinence or impotence. My first meeting with Dr. S was very complete and unhurried. He carefully explained my situation but made no promises. The surgical procedure usually takes around 4 hours. Mine was 6 1/2 hours because I bled more. Dr. S and his surgical team (7 in total)took the time required for my surgery properly without regard to time. My post op meeting with Dr. S like my meeting prior was complete and unhurried. Very professional but relaxed reviewing the surgery and post surgery lymph node lab test results which were cancer free. Hes #1!

He was very methodical and answered my questions directly. Gave me hope when I definitely needed it.

"He literally saved my life nice friendly very educated and knowledgeable and explains everything and your options I would highly recommend him to anyone Cannot praise him enough"

Dr. Shrivastava saved my life! Not only because he is a great surgeon and has a GREAT bedside manner and spends alot of time with his patients. But, because he convinced me to have prostate cancer surgery versus active surveillance which is what the other 3 doctors I saw told me to do! Dr. Shrivastava is the only doctor I have found in the last 30 years that remind me of the old fashioned doctor/patient relationships. He gives the patient time instead of the traditional --Wham-Bam-Thank You Mam-- Anyone looking for a doctor to get a second opinion for prostate cancer MUST see Dr. ALok Shrivastava. He is one of a kind!!! Also, anyone under 65 years of age considering --Active Surveillance-- should STOP the Surveillance and see Dr. Shrivastava or your doctor but get the surgery done ASAP!!!! DO NOT WAIT!!! ACT NOW!!! It will save your life!!! In addition, I just had the robotic surgery performed by Dr. Shrivastava and would never recommend the traditional surgery. Only go ROBOTIC! Take Care!

Dr Shrivastava is the best of the best. I have been battling High PSA levels for 10 years with several negative biopsys. I was skeptical on getting another biopsy. My PSA level hit a all time high of 12.6. I had my first visit with Dr Shrivastava and he sat down with me for over 2.5 hours and explained why the possibly the other biopsys came back negative. The other biopsys I had, I had to just bit the bullet with the pain of giving samples of twelve each time. With Dr Shrivastava he numbed the area took 16 biopsys with no pain at all and found Cancer. I had opted to have the surgery with Dr Shrivastava and am so happy that I had him cause he just caught the Cancer just as it just start to spread out of my prostate. Its been six months with a clean PSA level.

Has a bit of a God complex. After waiting 2 hours, This man talked down to me as if I were ignorant, managing to second guess calls made by my other doctors as well as disparaging the doctor that treated my father. He showed frustration with me if I asked for clarification when he asked a question. That was my first and last visit. I cant opine on his talent or skill. He may be a great doctor . I dont know. We just didnt hit it off. One final comment: he speaks with a heavy Indian accent. Clearly this has nothing to do with his medical capability, but it does make for occasional frustrations for both of us as I would often need to ask him to repeat himself.

This doctor lacks any affect and empathy. The only thing robotic about this MD is his attitude and personality, and hes no DaVinci.

July 17 , 2016
This doctor was rude to my wife and me, and lied to me re. my prostate removal. Other doctors have agreed with me that my prostate should have never been removed. Money was the real reason. In my opinion, Cleveland Clinic should remove him from the staff. Thank you.

March 12 , 2018
Worst dr I ever met. He has no bed manners and instead of making the patient confortable and calm he annoys us and made us feel as idiots. On top of that he paid little attention to my husband compliant/ pain and didn’t aliviated the issue. He doesn’t deserve the one star that is required to enter to write the review.
March 25 , 2019
Not good experience with him....

April 12 , 2018
This doctor has the wrong personal skillsets to practice in such a highly delicate medical specialty. Get yourself a caring and compassionate doctor and save yourself the grief.
