Patient Comments (7)
Brooklyn, NY |
Spends barely any time listening or examining you, she just wants to give you injections because they are expensive. Prescribed a totally unnecessary dangerous medication to me after barely investigating the cause of my pain. Other doctors told me to not take the medication she gave.
Told me I had "pelvic floor" problems when my symptoms were not associated with pelvic floor problems. She then gave me a series of totally useless injections into the pelvic floor. After her 8 injections didn't work she referred me to pain management at Ainsworth (most arrogant Dr.s I ever met there). It turned out, after seeing another physician, that I had an entrapped sciatic nerve in pelvis which had nothing to do with the pelvic floor. I had surgery to correct the problem

Dr made a significant misdiagnosis that has resulted in an intractable pain condition that was not there prior to seeing her. Dr is extremely arrogant. Dr failed to do tests before injections, promising she knew exactly what the problem was and tests weren't necessary. Dr became defensive when her treatment was ineffective and was creating new problems. Dr is an injection factory and pushes unnecessary injections. Dr needs to hold herself more accountable and admit mistakes.

I found Dr. Shrikhande to be technically excellent and quite pleasant. She listened, answered questions, and took a sufficient amount of time to diagnose my issue. She is certainly a super-expert on pelvic issues and did a great job in her diagnosis. However, you must be willing to deal with her unprofessional and incompetent staff who make the whole visit and followup exceedingly unpleasant and aggravating!
in College Point, NY |
The Dr is very knowledgeable, Patient n I was very pleased n happy I was referred to her She new exactly my problem. I would very highly recommend Dr Sheikande
Dr. Shrikhande provides the highest level of medical care and hospitable service; she treats her patients kindly and expertly, and we thank you for your kind review!
in Astoria, NY |
Dr. Shrikhande is a truly caring and brilliant physiatrist who I would never hesitate to recommend to family and friends. She brought me from an almost immobile state to fully functioning again after suffering from pubis symphysis dysfunction.
in Brooklyn, NY |
Dr. Shrikhande is bright and easy to discuss treatments with . I appreciate that she has a great arsenal of doctors that she refers out to. I feel like she has been integral to helping me form a team for my care of a complex issue and she seems well versed to help me in the areas that she knows best.
