I really like Dr Shankar she spends quality time with me and listens to what I have to say. One time her staff was a bit lax but that happens in the best of circumstances. She has referred to several specialist that I would also recommend. I would highly recommend her.

I've been on a search for a PCP- near to my home- with office personnel one is able to actually communicate with without having to constantly leave messages and 'waiting' for a call back. Dr. Shankar is absolutely superb. I'm sincerely utterly pleased. Her staff is are were cordial and considerate. I was greeted by the front office personal- a sincere honest greeting. I am very happy with my selection and hope to become a life long patient.

Dr Shankar is great. However, her office staff is deplorable. Apparently, you cannot voice your displeasure with their polices without getting the cops called, and your appointment cancelled. I will never return to this office because of the way Monica Grifaldo and her boss Crystal Evans-Taylor treated me. Both are very unprofessional, and apparently it is acceptable for office staff to be rude to patients.

I saw Dr. Shankar when my primary care physician, in the same practice, could not see me on short notice. I was very happy with the amount of time Dr. Shankar took to listen to me and answer my questions.

Dr. Shankar is very understanding and personable. She took the time to answer all of my questions. I felt extremely comfortable with her. Monica at the Kingwood location exhibits amazing customer service and is always so friendly and helpful. I love going to this office.

Dr.Shankar sees all three of my children. She took a lot of time to counsel my teenage girls about drugs and sex. She made them feel comfortable to talk to her about very serious issues that teens deal with during these years.

She is super sweet, she treated my child immediately when he was ill. I love the way she takes her time with her patients. She is not like other doctors that like to rush in and out.
