Dr. Shekar has been my primary care physician for over 20 years. I have never thought of looking for a new or another PCP. He is an excellent family physician with convenient office hours, and location.

The entire staff is amazing. I found the office when I moved back to st louis. The time a care the doctor and his staff gives is amazing. You don't feel like a package on a conveyor here. This is what medicine should be about. I greatly appreciate his consideration before prescribing any pills. He isn't quick to write a script and send you on your way, he treats you like family.

The best Doctor I could ever think off. His diagnosis is perfect and treats with minimal medicines. He doesn't scare with lots of unnecessary tests. He spends time to understand your situation and boosts up confidence with positive words. Very gentle and genuine person.

Dr. Shekar is the best doctor I have ever had. He listens to the patient's concerns. If he feels that he cannot treat the problem, he makes sure that you will get the best care from another doctor who specializes in that field. His staff even helps make the appointment. I know that he will eventually retire. When that happens, I don't know where I will go. No one else can take his place as far as listening to and caring for his patients. The well-known specialists should take lessons from him.
