My first (initial) visit with Dr. Shankar was a totally enjoyable experience. She devoted over 1 1/2 hours for my wife and I exploring my background and medical history. She addressed all of my concerns and outstanding medical issues. Dr. Shankar is a very personable and concerned Health Care Professional.
