How likely are you to recommend Dr. Shankar?

(Select your rating)
The care, service, and results are the highest level possible. Always very professional, thorough, and had an excellent "bedside manner. “Indeed, the most treasured of the Doctor I have been privileged to meet. Dr. Uday Shankar treated me as if I was a family member during all my meetings with him, before Surgery, and after. The surgery was undoubtedly successful, and the results were as described. If he weren't specialized, I'd see him for everything!” Most importantly is the after care ,18 months after the surgery I can still reach him should I need any advice/ Process through a WhatsApp support group facilitated by him and a few pioneers . Do I recommend him … Well you know the answer , Absolutely yes!! without a blink of an eye
