Pay a Bill
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.
I wonder why antibiotics are never recommended ?
Dr shankar is the best, so smart & great bedside manner
As always, Dr. Shankar was exceptional. We were a bit late to our appointment and she still took in all of the children. We were all in the same room and she was so patient and kind. She answered all of our questions and gave great advice and feedback - and unlike so many physicians these days, she did not rush us at all. The children enjoy seeing her. They don't have any jitters or doctor fears at all because she makes every visit a pleasant one.
Dr. Shankar herself is a good doctor - but I am not able to contact her when my children are sick. Even when my kids had covid her nurse didn't respond to my message until 10 days after the fact.
Excellent care- Dr Shankar and the rest of the team are wonderful. Navigating the NorthShore system continues to be an issue for us, there can be multiple barriers to scheduling and speaking with someone directly. Our former pediatrician's office was much easier to work with in this context- easy to speak with someone, schedule directly, and find open appointments
My son's group of doctor's are very knowledgeable in their field. Very empathetic and compassionate but also very professional. Especially my son's pcp, the best in her job. Only the best commendation for all of them.
She did a fantastic job
*Dr. Shankar is very professional and takes all the time you need to get your questions answered.
We felt that she did an excellent job of connecting with our daughter and making her feel comfortable.
If I can't get an appointment for whatever reason with my child's regular doctor I will wait.Rather than trying another doctor of the same practice. My child's visit was completely unsupervised and she is not his regular doctor. This may have been uncomfortable for him. I was told I would be called in AFTER height and weight. This did NOT happen. I was called in when the appointment was over. Again a behavior assessment was given in addition to questions of his mental health. He is still a minor,I should've been made aware and in the room to ask questions or at least informed of what was taking place. I was totally out of the loop.
