Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

My whole family (myself, spouse, kids, grandparents) are patients of Dr. Shendrikar's. She is an incredible, attentive physician who is always available to help in matters large and small. She is also fantastic at managing insurance issues and working with other providers, serving as the hub of some very complex wheels, while making sure nothing slips through the cracks. Can't say enough great things about her.

Communicative Doctor
She is a very pleasant and concerned provider. She took the time to discuss my treatment options and made sure I understood what I could be in for and the likely hood of problems. And followed up with my labs and progress.

She was my PCP for 7+ years until I moved to another city. She really cares and makes you feel comfortable. She is the best PCP I've ever had and I don't think I can find someone like her.

Doctor S. is, quite simply, AMAZING! I love her through-and-through. Not only is she extraordinarily competent, when she is unsure of something, she says so--totally refreshing in today's B.S. society. As a patient of hers now for many years, I speak from experience: she DEEPLY cares about her patients. And another tell-tale sign--she treats her nurses and staff like family! I recommend her to ANYONE who wants the best all-around physician when it comes to care AND caring. TEN STARS!

Dr. Shendrikar is the sweetest and most thoughtful human being I have ever met in my life. She is more than a doctor. I’ve had plenty of doctors in my life and my experiences even though good with them are just that experiences. With Dr. Shendrikar you create memories. Your patient doctor relationships exceeds that of just the office as she actually messages you and cares about your health and well being on the hospital portal. I owe her my life and for that I will always be grateful

I was Dr. Shendrikar's patient for over 13 years. And I still would be if I had not moved out of state. My daughter and I both developed a very special relationship with Dr. Shendrikar. In my opinion Dr. Shendrikar is the best doctor I have ever had. She is not only very knowledgeable in her field but is a patient advocate. She truly cares and follows through on the care of her patients. Any time I emailed or called with questions Dr. Shendrikar personality found the time to respond.

Dr. Shendrikar has been our family dr for 7years now and she is the full package I have three kids so I have very high expectations she answers ALL my concerns and is very professional. She takes the time to know each one of us in order to give the best health advice. She is also very theral catches the source of health issues even when other drs (at urgent care, er or hospital) have missed them. She genuinely cares about her patients. She is easy to be reached and fits us in her busy schedule.

Dr. Shendrikar has been the best family practice doctor I have had. I have been a patient of hers since her first days at Santa Monica Bay Physicians. She is always patient, understanding, and takes time to listen to all my concerns. She is professional, knowledgeable, and provides useful advice and solutions for my health care needs. She is prompt in returning calls, and scheduling urgent appointments if necessary. She is always positive and dedicated to providing the best health care possible.
