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.
