This is my personal experience and my personal opinion. I went for fungal infection and marks. Doctor gave me a couple medicine and told me that the marks are due to infection and using other ointments. He gave me a prescription of medicines for a month, which were only available at his clinic(very costly). I was told that I had a free follow up but when I went again to his clinic i was asked for consultation fees again. I left the clinic at that moment and didn't go back.I tried searching the medicines online and Medplus stores but couldn't find it. The treatment did fix the fungal infection but marks were still there. Later I went to see another doctor who examined the marks and the medicines I took carefully and told me that they are nothing but stretch marks and that it has nothing to do with the infection. He told me that these marks would be there in other areas. He gave me good advice about how to take care of stretch marks.So I think I would not recommend him because even though he will try to treat you properlybut in the process you will be losing all your money. Same or rather better treatment can be done in other clinics keeping in consideration one's bank balance.
Dr. Sandeep Mahapatra replied
Stretch marks were because of the OTC products you used before consultation and they are permanent and no Doctor can resolve that issue, primarily fungal infection we tackled with help of antifungal medications and advise otherwise the root cause won't be solved.
Price of medications are determined by pharmacy companies and not us.
Quality treatment will always be higher priced compared to treatment by quacks or non specialists.
Hope you understand.
