I recommend the doctor
Doctor Karthik has lots of patience, listens to all our problems smilingly and provides good prescription which always worked out for us. Our baby is happy and growing neatly without any issues. The problems we went with is usually resolved within couple of days of medicine he prescribed. Waiting time is also not much and the new clinic is very good.
