What People Say About Dr. Besagarahally Shankara, MD
Reply
A true healer and something of a magician. I had suffered a severe stroke which left me entirely paralyzed on my right side. Under his direction, I was taught to walk, write, and eat with a fork all over again. I lived in the hospital for months, under the gentle care of a team of dedicated nurses, techs, Physical Therapists (thank you, Kelly and Wendy) OTs, and a wonderful Psychologist named Carolyn Reeder. I am now almost completely recovered, and starting to jog and play the piano again.
