I'm taking the RA treatment from Dr Sharath Kumar since 2.5 years approximate and I have seen major improvements in terms of my lifestyle , joint flexibility, medicines dosages.
I understand what the medicine is doing inside my body and I understand where I'm moving towards. I'm more comfortable in discussing my problems , Doctor is very much reachable for any emergencies. My reports and very much normal and disease is controlled.

I would recommend him for any patient going through joint issues and severe pain especially RA patients.

Thanks.
