Because of his sharp clinical acumen, extensive knowledge in the subject and art of caring and curing, has a unique simple way of approaching illness using low technology more often than the high technology. He also believes strongly that majority of the patients need low technology only and high technology should be reserved only for few selected patients and as and when necessary because high technology has its own limitations and problems. many people may believe that high technology and spending lot of money is superior form of treatment but it is not so because in the field of medicine every treatment has its own place and all are complimentary to each other rather than one is better than the other.

Today good scientific study and data are available confirming the fact that our disease process is different as compared to the western world in most of the illnesses. If that is so Dr. Shetty feels that our disease also needs different approach rather than applying western methods straightaway.

Because of this, he knows the positive and negative aspects of every checkups and is sharp in selecting the right investigation applying common sense, presence of mind approach particularly looking into our socio- economic background. He strongly believes that good history taking and examination of the patient is the most important tool among all the available checkups today.
