She was attentive and proactive! She was very responsive after the visit with my test results.

I found the primary care doctor that I met for the first time was able to understand my health issues. This was my annual review and the doctor was thorough and actually recommended a new medication to help with my food cravings. This doctor and the entire staff from front desk to the assistants were personable and capable.

Dr. Shevel spent a lot of time with me, answered many questions. I really felt she listened to me, and she went into depth several times.

I appreciate when I see a doctor, and they see me! They listen! And they find a solution at least try to resolve my medical problems. I hope she becomes part of the UCLA team. At this time UCLA definitely needs more doctors like her!
