Dr. Shashidhar is caring and genuinely wants to help the patient. We consulted him for my mother's lower back pain, and were impressed by his expertise and patience. Even in a video consultantation, he was in no hurry, listened patiently to all the problems my mother was experiencing, and in detail expalained the root cause of the issue. He suggested the next steps in a very clear manner. We highly recommend Dr. Shashidhar for spine related problems.
Consulted Dr. Shashidhar for my mom. She is 64yrs old and was suffering a lot with shock like pain in her left leg (radiating from hip to the side of the leg) whenever she walked or stood for long time. Dr. Shashidhar is very amiable and is indeed a specialist when it comes to spine related problems. He does a thorough diagnosis and doesn't rush to conclusions. He explained the problem in a very detailed manner and clarified each and every doubt/questions we had. He suggested for epidural injection prior to surgery which gave her relief for couple of months (we were informed that it isn't a permanent solution). Since the pain reoccured, we went for surgery -TLIF L5S1. We were given both options - Open and Minimally Invasive TLIF L5S1. We went for MI. My mom was initially scared to undergo surgery but the Doctor explained to her in layman's terms and told her it is nothing to fear about and made her feel confident, not every doctor does this. The surgery was successful and she was able to feel the difference after a couple of weeks itself. Currently which is 6 months later, my mom is able to walk and stand without the pain and is back to her normal routine.
It is very important for a doctor to understand a patient's problems and for that he needs to be a good listener, be friendly which allows the patient to get comfortable in sharing all his health issues. I have seen these traits in Dr.Shashidhar. He is one of those few who first makes the patient feel comfortable,then spends time in understanding your root cause before prescribing remedies. one of those who would look at your x-ray/mri films rather than reading reports written by a radiologist. Highly recommended!!!!
