I value getting to know patients and their families, finding ways to improve health together through education, empowerment, and advocacy.
I enjoy listening to music, singing, travelling, and spending time in nature.
my daughters really love Dr. Shankar. She listens to them and asks great questions to really understand their symptoms and possible solutions.
Doctor we saw seemed very inexperienced. Failed to clearly informed and explained positive results from state's newborn screening test and appropriate course of actions. Results were communicated in haste and quickly deferred our questions (basic) to specialist. This created MUCH unnecessary panic and stress. At the bottom line, I expected her to be able to inform what the test is testing, the procedure, likelihood of false positives, etc.
First time meeting Dr. Shenkar, and she was excellent! Intelligent, confident and very personable with my kids.
You have no idea if someone is a good doctor or not until they do something good or bad I have no information about this doctor at this moment
Very understanding, thorough, caters to your questions & concerns, gets info for you via other resources if needed to ensure it's current & accurate.
very good with my teenage daughter - she actually listened to the doctor
What a kind, patient, thorough and kind doctor
Dr. Shankar was so professional and attentive. My 16 year old daughter is so happy to have a young female doctor who she feels understands her.
This was our first time seeing *Dr. Shankar since our regular pediatrician wasn't available. She was beyond fabulous! If we didn?t love our regular doctor so much, we would switch. This group has amazing pediatricians!
While *Dr. Shankar is not our regular pediatrician, I would definitely recommend her to friends.
