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. ...more

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.
