Good doctor. His medicines worked well for me. I had warts at my back private area. Few where big and few small. Earlier some other doctor said it will not go with medicine and laser treatment is required. He prescribed some medicine which dint work.

The doctor appointment was on time. But the doctor was not even willing to listen to all the problem. Even though there were no other patients and there was enough time to close the clinic, the doctor was like "you need to go". He won't even listen to all the issues I had.He didn't even confirm if whatever treatments I was following was correct or not. Not going back again.
