We have visited Dr. Giridhar on 31st October 2017, for the treatment of multiple problems our 2 yrs old son was facing. The problems our son was facing are-
We were visiting Dr. Giridhar since my daughter's birth for any kind fever or infection. He has always provided the best treatment. Very trustworthy doctor, kind and clears all our doubts very patiently.
Dr. Giridhar has been my daughter's paediatrician for the last 3 years. Needless to say, if we have been going to him for so long, we are very happy and content from him. Below is the list of things that have kept us going to him every time we need a doctor and every time we didn't :)
I have visited Dr. Giridhar for my Son's fever, cold and cough. He listens to the patients, does detailed checks before prescribing remediative actions. Very careful with antibiotics when prescribing to kids, does so only after exhausting other options.
