I am 34 and have had diabetes since the age of 10. I have had several endocrinologists over the years. Dr. Shastry stands out way above the others. She is sincerely caring, takes the time that is needed, and tries to find out my whole person and then direct me to proper channels. Couldn’t be more pleased with Dr. Shastry.
