Like....I recommend the doctor
This was our first visit. We were happy with the procedure they follow. But need to wait for long time.
we had very bad experience..The sisters outside font even allow to meet the doctor directly to tell our concerns..they will only note our problems and they will talk to doctor and tell us the treatment.
Very unprofessional behaviour from the Apollo management.patient have to wait for long hours despite having prior appointment.Doctor never turns up on time.
