    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Dr Shankar is an excellent Dr. However his staff is very childish & likes to play games. Dr Shankar, fire you immature girls on your staff & you would have a great review. Very unprofessional female staff.

My Experiences as a Patient of Dr. Prithvi Shankar

Dr. Shankar has been my primary physician for many years. He has been one of the best doctors I have ever dealt with. He has a vast amount of knowledge, a very good bedside manner, (when I am talking with him I feel has all the time needed to answer questions and offer advice), and refers me to very good doctors.

Past client

I think his bed side manner is In need of improvement. When he leaves on vacation, he asked Dr. Dias to take on his patients, this doctor has no business in practice. Rude and thinks his opinion is the only one that counts. Both of these doctors see my mother and declared her to be in good health, two weeks later she passed and Dr. Shankar did not even have the curtesy or courage to call. I dropped him as my family Doctor immediately .
