What People Say About Dr. Shilpa Sawardekar, MD

I have only seen one dermatologist in the last couple years and he was all right, but I can honestly say that Dr. Sawardekar was excellent! Very knowledgeable, and respectful, and presented two options for treatment of a cyst. She is very enthusiastic, and acts like she enjoys her job. I never felt rushed in my office visit and she addressed all of my concerns. I finally have a great dermatologist!

My visit to Dr. Shilpa was approximately a week ago. I must say that I was very satisfied with Dr. Shilpa's knowledge and professionalism. The results on me was excellent. Although, I am sure that her assistant is very competent, I was uncomfortable having her assistant in the room .... in that I felt my privacy was invaded. Being a teacher for 33 years, I give Dr. Shilpa an A Plus. I will be returning.

I found Dr. Sawardekar to be very thorough in her examination of my skin, clear in her answers to my questions and willing to help me. She addressed a few skin issues immediately and efficiently. I will continue to use her and to recommend her to others.

After having Dr. Moore retire, finding Dr. Sawardekar is a relief. I am an MD and I am fully confident in her.

Dr.Sawerdekar was kind, pleasant and meticulous, an excellent doctor. She made me feel comfortable checking spots and was precise in helping remove any unwanted spots. I am so thankful I found her for my family.

I work from home and didn’t have time to do my hair and makeup. This was my first time meeting the doctor. She did not listen to what I was worried about and did not offer options appropriate to my questions. She seemed to make assumptions that because I was not “done” up that I was not able to afford what I was asking about. She gave unsolicited advice and only refilled a prior prescription. Hopefully, with experience, she will becomes more adept.

The doctor was very friendly and approachable. I was given a treatment plan and medication for my problem but I’m still unsure of why or how it got there those questions are still unanswered. I don’t like medications in my body and i feel there are possible bigger problems that i may not be able to see. Overall I thought the appointment went well.

I was able to get an appointment extremely fast. The office staff was efficient and I didn't have to wait long in the waiting room. The Doctor was friendly and knowledgeable. After an examination, she was able to diagnose the rash on my legs immediately. The prescription she provided worked wonderfully and started to give me relief from itching within a couple of days.
