Very professional doctor. Other doctors had advised me Rs 25000 other tests in the name of diabetes. They use to call me every month and prescribe costly medicines and advised expensive test. Dr Shanka Very professional doctor. Other doctors had advised me Rs 25000 other tests in the name of diabetes. They use to call me every month and prescribe costly medicines and advised expensive test. Dr Shankar calls me very six months. Pure professional and doesn't speaks much. Experienced doctor will understand within seconds what is wrong with patients.
I am very satisfied with is treatment. God Bless him.

This was my worst experience ever with any doctor. I hardly remember him enquiring about the issue and mostly he was stuck to his PC and making non-sense list of medicines I should take.

All the hard
This was my worst experience ever with any doctor. I hardly remember him enquiring about the issue and mostly he was stuck to his PC and making non-sense list of medicines I should take.

All the hard medicines he gave caused severe ulcer in my oesophagus for 2 weeks and in between when I tried to contact the doctor, he was not at all reachable. And that didn't even affect my issue a bit.

I think more than boasting about his fake promises, he should understand the issue first and be more human in treating or in his advice.

Being close to his lunch time, the doctor didn't spent enough time listening to the problem and hurried into everything. In general also, the medicine he gave didn't help at all and we had to visit som Being close to his lunch time, the doctor didn't spent enough time listening to the problem and hurried into everything. In general also, the medicine he gave didn't help at all and we had to visit someone else the next week. Turned out to be waste of money because the following week, we had to pay the consultation fee again. Will not recommend visiting him.

Note that, this doctor doesn't sit in the designated speciality department but is a general physician who also looks at endocrinology cases.
