I really expected to like this doctor because of how state of the art they appeared. The office staff was nice enough and the nurses were nice and kind but Dr. Shetty had an awful bedside manner. She treated me as if I was diseased. I understand covid times but i had a negative test result that was shared with her. She was rude and short with me and I will not be coming back to this practice. Or if I do I will definitely see another doctor.
I have been seeing Dr. Shetty for 10 -11 years. I like her. She is cautious and always calls me personally about results. She is my second endocrinologist , the first was in NYC. She does more regular testing than my first one and I feel good about that. I trust her.
This is literally the absolute worst experience I've had with a medical office. Initially when scheduling my appointment, they established me with a provider who does not work with insulin pumps (despite my statement that I've been managed on a pump since high school). I then got scheduled with Dr. Shetty, whose bedside manner, as others have already stated, leaves a lot to be desired. Perhaps what has been the absolutely worst experience of suffering through 6 months of treatment with this practice is the total and complete ineptitude of the front office staff and basic office necessities (e.g., for approximately 2 weeks their phone line was down, I literally had to send a fax and email to attempt to reschedule an appointment and request a new, CORRECT, prescription, which was incorrectly placed by the office, in addition to bloodwork, which was never sent despite numerous requests). As someone who has had extensive medical issues and been treated all over the country by numerous medical professionals and practices, and as someone who is in the medical field, I have NEVER experienced such an embarrassment of a practice and I have never written a review as the one I am now. Avoid AT ALL COSTS.
During my initial intake and first visit with Dr Setty I left feeling informed. We put a plan in motion to achieve my goals. She was well versed in pump therapy and offered workable solutions. I also liked having labs drawn onsite and Dr Shetty’s attention to following up every 6 weeks for now. She called me personally the next day with lab results which I appreciated rather than wait to see them online. Personally, I do not take online ratings that seriously because each person’s life experiences tend to weigh in on their perception. Whether it’s diabetes or another chronic condition it’s much easier to blame a doctor or an office if unsatisfied with care then it is to work at staying healthy. Diabetes is 100% self-care. Doctors are here to guide us, and office staff are here to make us feel welcomed. I felt both with this practice.
I have been seeing Dr. Shetty for 15 years. She may not be the most friendly doctor around but, she certainly knows her stuff. She is thorough and makes sure her patients are on the right track.
The four star rating is exclusively for her treatment of my hypothyroidism and my moms diabetes. Ive been seeing her for 3 years and she seems to know her stuff. My mom is also a patient for treatment of diabetes. Dr Shetty is the only doctor to date to take my moms condition seriously and help her achieve and maintain a healthy A1C. If u r a sensitive person or get frustrated by questions easily (like me), she might not be ur cup of tea but I'd encourage u to give her a chance. She can come off as mean and annoying, but hey I'm not there to be her friend. Shes a good doctor and with all the quackery out here, I think shes a good find.
If there was a. -0. I would give her that. Eveyone who has made comments on here is absolutely right. She is rude, her billing staff is horrible, and when I had a problem with billing, no one would fix it. Safe yourself the aggravation. I was there for about 6-8 months and now I am looking for a new one.
Dr. Shetty has been my endocrinologist for the past three or four years and I am quite satisfied with her guidance. If you understand that you have a serious condition, then you understand that she is there to provide you with guidance and not become your best friend. My numbers have been horrible at times...but, I know exactly why -- because I eat like a goat, -everything. But I don't expect Dr. Shetty to coddle me and make me feel better. It's no fun experience being on that hot seat. Not saying that anyone has, but I have never lied to Dr. Shetty in what I have said or done. And even if I had, the numbers don't lie. How prepared are you for your appointment? Do you ask questions? Please remember that a doctor patient relationship is a two way deal...get focused on hitting your numbers, and if you fall short -- be honest. Then try harder next time. When I have followed her guidance yet still struggled, Dr. Shetty was indeed supportive and compassionate. - Sean (Type II - 13 years)
I'm a bit taken aback at all the negative reviews, I thought she was great--very responsive (and probing) as to symptoms and other possible causes of the symptoms. I'm not a huge fan of the office mechanics--the voicemail, the reliance on secure emails, etc--but those are minor quibbles. She's been immensely helpful.
I am pleased by the results. I have a follow up visit for my diabetes in two weeks.
This is honestly the worst endocrinologist Ive ever dealt with. She is incredibly hard to talk to, and very accusatory in her words. Instead of listening to your problem she insinuates if your sugar is up that you are lying about taking your insulin. She had absolutely zero bedside manner, and constantly tried to insinuate you were lying when you told her whats going on. I will never go back to this doctor, and hope that i save many people the trouble of dealing with this woman. It was an awful experience.
Archana may be board certified, but she only has the basics in mind. As a type 1 diabetic, she focused entirely too much on carb counting, which is not a problem of mine. She didn't understand the principles of total daily insulin percentages when considering basal and bolus, and incorrectly stated that none of my current medications has the risk of increasing potassium.Yes, she it to the point, but that is a fault in my opinion. She avoids looking at detailed information despite my CGM, pump and BG logs. She goes 2 weeks deep and tries to make decisions. She does not consider the patient as a whole or take the time to discuss options or problems. I need a doctor, not a running back just trying to get to the other side.This is disappointing because I have had better experiences with other staff.
I have seen her for my diabetes and can tell you she is the best.No nonsense and honest straight forward. No sugar coating your illness or your medications no pun intended
We visited Dr. Archana Shetty for my thyroid problem. Though I dont have problem, she put me under medication. Because of that I started getting severe chest pain and some other side effects also. When I asked her, she replied in a rude manner I may have all these problems and its not because of her medication. I have used her medicine 10 months and my health condition became worst and finally I decided to stop the medication. Its been around 3 months i stopped using the medicine and now I am doing good. With my family doctors help again I went for the thyroid tests and the results were positive. Later I enquiured my initial test results with Archana Shetty (thyroid range values in wikipedia and google), for those values Doctor should not put the patient under medication but Dr.Archana Shetty did. I can simply say SHE PLAYED WITH MY HEALTH AND ALSO WE OBSERVED SHE IS MONEY MINDED. Sincerely suggest not to consult Dr.Archana Shetty.Hope this message is useful for others.Thank you.
