First off I’d like to say “RIP Dr. Shankar. Dr. Shankar past away a couple months ago. He was a very good psychiatrist and had a knack for 100% accuracy in all his diagnoses. He helped me become a much better person today. In the years I had the pleasure of working with him it’s sad to know I’ll never see him again. It was very sudden and no one knew about it. He was someone who actually took time and listened to his patients and treated them like he would his friends. A+++ “KidGloves”
