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.
