I do not recommend the doctor
The experience was really bitter. I would never recommend Doc. Shivashankar to anybody after what he has done to my skin.
I was taking treatment from him for over 4 months for skin pigmentation. When none of his medicines worked over the months, he suggested that I should go for a Laser surgery. Since I am out-stationed, I took one sitting of the Laser which was done by a person who was a professional in doing the same (and not the doctor). The skin pigmentation all over the face was burnt by laser, however after a week, the wound healed and the result was good. I went for a second setting, as the Doc said 3 setting minimum was required. This time the professional was not called and the Laser was done by the "Receptionist" of the clinic. Yes, the doctor was confident enough to hand over the instrument to the receptionist to burn my face. She burnt my skin deeper and spreaded it all over my face (even where there was no pigmentation) making the situation worse. It took 2.5 weeks for the wound to heal, but the marks remained deep and dark unlike the 1st setting. Meanwhile I had to go back to my native and the mark remained growing deeper and spreading all across my face.
The pigmentation has become much worst and now incurable. Dark Brown patches are all over my face now and I can't even go out to public gatherings.
If you want to recover from your issues, kindly never visit him. Also, the receptionists at his clinic makes sure that you pay 400 rupees on every visit, may it be a follow up visit or a regular visit.
