Patient Comments (1)
in Cheshire, CT |
Very efficient office, was taken to an exam room at my exact appointment time and saw the doctor within 5 minutes. Dr Shetty listened to all of my concerns and explained everything and made sure I was comfortable with the type of procedure he was planning. On the day of surgery everything was equally as professional at the hospital and well executed.
