I have been suffering from cough and cold on and off for the last many years. And like most people I preferred self-medication as each bout of cold/ cough only lasted for a few days.

After an outing in November I suffered from a swollen throat that made eating and even swallowing liquids difficult. Hot water gargles weren't effective and I finally bit the bullet and searched for an ENT specialist in my area. Dr Sankarshana came highly recommended on Practo.

I booked an appointment for 9 AM, hoping that the waiting time would be reduced as I would be the first patient of the day. I was pleasantly surprised to find the doctor at the clinic at 8:50 AM.

The doctor asked a few routine questions and proceeded to check the infected area. While the throat was swollen the uvula (the small piece of tissue that hangs in the back of the throat) was extremely elongated and blocking the passage to the throat. This condition is called Uvulitis and if not treated immediately can cause long-term damage to the throat.

The doctor's demeanour was calm throughout the session and he insisted that there wasn't anything to worry. He prescribed 5 days of antibiotics (for the throat infection) and steroids (for the Uvulitis).

The best part of modern technology is that follow-ups have become a lot more convenient. Even though I live close to the clinic, the doctor insisted that I send him regular updates during the 5 days of active medication only on WhatsApp instead of coming physically to his clinic. This is a huge value-add for patients - especially considering the limited time most of us have.

The swelling in the throat subsided within a few days and the uvula reduced in size, but the infection seemed to have spread to other parts - and had become a full-blown sinus infection. I also had high fever and body pain at this point.

This time the doctor did not hesitate in calling me in for a physical examination. He suspected that I might have sinusitis and ordered an MRI scan. But just to be on the safe side - he also asked me to get a rapid blood test done to rule out dengue.

Vijaya Diagnostic Centre in Indira Nagar did a fantastic and quick job with the MRI and the blood test (and also sent the report to the doctor and to me via email within a few hours).

Turns out I had a deviated septum and had been suffering from a chronic sinus issue. The regular bouts of cough and cold were a result of this. I had never had a severe enough sinus infection before for this to be discovered.

To be on the safe side I decided to get a second opinion. I was immediately advised to get an operation to fix the deviated septum (a costly procedure). Dr Sankarshana however cautioned that the deviation wasn't much and the sinus condition could be managed without a procedure. And I am glad that I took his advice. A few more days of medication resolved the infection and the fever.

And I have been taking better care of my throat ever since and haven't had a repeat problem.

Overall, I had a great experience interacting with the doctor and would highly recommend him to others.

As one of the reviewer has mentioned here he did exactly the same thing with me .

He asked me where i am working and after he came to know that i am in to IT he asked me undergo a test which costed me Rs 3000 . ** *** **** **** . Also the annoying part was he would ask you to go to Cluemax diagnostic center whom he has a tied up with . Also when i reached there the lady who was present at the cash counter would called the doctor and informed him that i had come and undergoing the test . so that he would be aware about it and latter he would get his share from center . These doctor have crossed all levels of greediness . They have no humanity no ethics left . simple they are making money in india ** ****** *** ****** ***** **** ****** ****** ***** ** *********** ****** *

Upon reaching there, the doctor asked for the problems i was facing. Then he did some inspection.

Evrything looked good so far.

Then he asked for where I were working.
As soon as he came to know I was in IT, there was a smile on his face. I should have left by then only.

Then he refered me to do a CT PNS at some poor diagnostics center where they were charging 3000/- for it.
I was lucky enough. Because that day the CT machine was not functional. But then the doctor called me and insisted to wait till evening for the machine to be operational and do the scan there only. But my condition was worse. So I asked for a refund and went to another place for treatment.

Also the meds he predscribed shouldn't be taken at initial stage(I came to know later)

All it seems like a bussiness only.

So please avoid this place or even if you consult, then don't tell you're from IT.

Cold is something which one ignores for a long time unless one day you decide to see a doctor to figure out - - why so frequent ?

The same happened to me. On a day when my family is going through thick and they need my support, I'm sneezing over & over all over the place. Just then I think damn I had cold last week & last to last week as well -- still not cured even after taking self medication so many times !

Opened Practo at once & searched for doctors near me & saw Dr. Sankarshana V T 's name pop up very near to my place. I decided to book an appointment.

Reached clinic and met Dr. Shankar, ** ** ******** ***** * *** ****** ** *** **** ********* ** *** *** ******* ******* a very good human being as well. A doc who uses social media to its best, asked me to get the blood test & scan done & found the root cause in place of giving mediocre cough & cold medicine. I'm grateful to him for help me out.

Pros:
Understands your lifestyle details & analyse
Gives good advice
precise medication

Cons :
None

I'll surely refer Sankarshana V T
