Doctor is very friendly and my mother has back pain. With calmly doctor explained about the pain and how we can overcome it with different ways exercises, medication. For all the previous prescriptions from other doctors I showed and immediately asked my mother to stop other medication since those are only pain killers which can cause other problems if traken for long time and suggested non pain piklers medication which takes time but will reduce the pain. Thank you
The doctor is very friendly, approachable, and explains the medical condition in detail leaving no room for confusion. My father in law had a stroke and we were all panicked. He patiently addressed all questions that were asked by us.. He made us comfortable by answering the questions that were causing anxiety, and we would certainly recommend him to others.
