Ratings for Dr. Shashindra P. Shetty
Bedside manner needs work - asked many questions without giving me time to respond. Seemed to not listen when I finally did respond. Will not do any paper work or make referrals without appt. Will not do anything extra for the patient such as pre-authorization for a cheaper RX. My pharmacist complained that he was very hard to deal with and did everything different than most other docs. There are much better Docs at SMCC - find another.
I have been seeing Dr Shetty for close to 10 years now and after he establishes a good Doctor-Patient relationship he becomes a very good doctor. This is the key with him, be frank and truthful, then he will do the same. I receive medicine monthly for chronic pain and he is very thorough in making sure that I do not run out and seems very knowledgeable concerning internal medicine. I would recommend him to someone looking for a long term doctor, not someone just looking for a quick 'fix' for pills.
Stay away from this doctor. He does not like to help anyone out and get you what you need when you are eligible to get it. Does not fill out any papers without an appointment, even if you had forgot them. He is not very knowledgable on diabetes. Very impatient. He will ask a bunch of questions without giving you a chance to answer the questions he has asked. If you can't answer the questions fast enough, then he sends you to diabetes training that the educator knows less about diabetes than you do. Because I needed an insurance paper filled out and he was having a bad day or something, he said for me to find another doctor that would fill out these papers and "deal with me." I just suggest anyone to be very cautious with this doctor.
