Our experience has been good..we are consulting him for our son (since his birth) who is now 1 year old..he is also guiding about diet for the child..my son has fallen sick two to three times in recent past..on one occasion, when he was suffering with cough, cold and fever, we took him to Dr Nilesh, who prescribed treatment as per viral infections ( prescribed nebulisation with saline) and did not prescribe any antibiotics ..our son got well in 3-4 days..
Great as always! He asks about every small detail related to the baby and gives good suggestions. He’s patient and checks the baby very thoroughly. This time we went for vaccination and he managed very quickly. Baby didn’t cry much. I would recommend him to all other parents who are looking for a sensible and reliable doctor
We are consulting Dr. Nilesh for my son since his birth. I am having great experience with the him & the way he treats the babies. It gives a booster for mothers to listen to his way of assessing babies & monitoring their progress. Some of the unknown facts about babies eating pattern & diet was explained very clearly.He is very soft spoken, talks to the point and catches what should be the correct stage of child's development. Ensures baby is growing at right pace. Tells Do's and dont's for future. He believes in less medication and I prefer him over any other doctor.
He is the doctor to whom I consult for my one yr old son since his birth.
