About Ravi Madhure Shankar, MD
Dr Ravi Shankar is a Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine and specializes in Hematology/Oncology. He completed his Internal Medicine Residency at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and from there he went on to pursue his specialty in Hematology/Oncology at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, CA. Dr Shankar has been in practice as an Oncologist since 2014, initially primarily as a clinician seeing the breadth of benign and malignant hematology conditions as well as solid malignancies. He has had a profound interest in clinical research throughout his career and has taken an active role in the research programs in his previous positions. Further, he has had a keen interest in academics and has given multiple didactic talks to the Oncology nursing staff, been the primary speaker at a Genetics CME to community physicians, and also presented a Ground Rounds lecture on Breast Cancer. Is it because of these latter two interests that Dr Shankar chose to make the transition from a community practice to this academic role. In his free time he enjoys spending time with his wife and three young and rambunctous children.
Dr. Shankar’s philosophy with regards to patient care begins with and ends with compassion. He is cognizant of the difficulty patients can have with hearing the news of a cancer diagnosis and does his best to guide them through the process by explaining their diagnosis at length, listening to their concerns, reviewing their various treatment options, and addressing their questions throughout the process. Hematology and Oncology is a collaborative endeavor which requires communication with a multitude of specialists and he makes the effort to discuss complex cases with his physician colleagues regularly. Finally, he prides himself on his warm and outgoing personality and ability to connect with people from a diverse socioeconomic, ethnic and cultural background due to his diverse clinical training and practice experience. He looks forward to being a part of your treatment team.
