Dr Sreenath is one such rare Practitioner who clearly understands the pulse of his patients, being parent for the first time we approached Dr for all the doubts with respect to our 30 days old baby growth, we were anxious on many aspects of baby growth for which the doctor was really kind in putting us to ease, and answering every minute question that we had for him. Being a health care professional myself and working in a MNC hospital set up, I rarely have come across such doctor who really will not end the session/ consultation till the time you have no more questions to be asked. We had a wonderful experience consulting Doctor Sreenath.
May your tribe increase sir!
I have been going to Dr Sreenath from when my daughter was born. His medicines/treatment always work for my daughter. he is also very patient and good listener, which is very much required for 1st time mothers
I visited Doctor when my baby had severe colic. He prescribed probiotics for Colic. Colic reduced sooner than expected. He is very friendly and explains the issue in detail.
Good experience *** ******** ** ****** *****
great handwriting so it's not difficult to understand prescription later when required.
Our 9 day old Daughter developed a painful swelling around her breast for which we consulted Dr.Sreenath at Fortis lafemme. After examination he told us it's a breast abscess & needs treatment with antibiotics. We started oral antibiotics for 3 days which didn't seem to help. After consulting again, he started IV Antibiotics & hoped for it to resolve. He even had a Cross reference with a Pediatric Surgeon right then As I was worried if this abscess required an Incision & Drainage. His frequent call for Follow-ups & regular examinations made me feel calm about the situation & helped us deal with this in the best way. After a 7 day course , the swelling has now almost completely come down. No admission or Surgical procedure was needed , for which I will forever be grateful.Dr. Sreenath is Excellent when it comes to diagnoses & initiating the best immediate Care when required. He will listen to all your queries & answer them patiently. For new Mother's like me this is truly a blessing! He explained that neonates shouldn't get Breast massages as suggested by most Aayas while giving the baby a bath. Though this wasn't the case with us , he made me aware that majority of breast related issues in neonates happen when milk is expressed from the breasts, which shouldn't be done. A household common Myth that does major Harm. Thank you Dr.Sreenath for Everything!
Our daughter Aaliya has been Dr Sreenath's patient since she was almost 5 months old and she's 5.5years old now. I honestly can't say enough great things about Dr Sreenath and what he's done for our daughter. He's a very talented and passionate doctor who's given exceptional care to our daughter. We've had some rough rides with Aaliya and Dr Sreenath has helped us get through it all and helped us find the appropriate help for her. He's extremely polite, ************* and always ready to help any child when required which is not something we experience very often now a days. I'm an overly paranoid mother and Dr Sreenath is always there to answer my questions and to reassure me or to suggest the right treatment for our daughter even though he has an extremely busy schedule. Dr Sreenath is one of the very few doctors I've met who really cares about his patients. Recently he was available to assist and give advice to one of my friend's daughter who was not even his patient. Such pediatricians are very rare to find now a days. As a first time mother, knowing that your kid's doctor is always there to provide any medical advice to you is truly comforting!We're so grateful to have Dr Sreenath to take care of our daughter Aaliya! Thank you for always being kind and for genuinely caring.
Friendly natured n explains well about disease in common terms.. I really like to recommend this doctor to other colleagues
Very friendly Doctor and gives enough time for all the patients. Specially gives well explanation for every question we have and very suggetion he gives. We had concern with babys umbilical cord not healing even after a month, he suggested us the home remedy of applying rock salt and i was little worried, he even explained how it helps. Cord was healed only in one application. Thank you.
My baby suffered from cough from three months.he diagnosed as allerigic brochitis and he given less medicine.now she is perfectly alright.my child free from cough and cold.we r so happy now.thank u so much sir.doctor follws Benjamin Franklin words
Dr. Sreenath is a terrific Doctor and an awesome human being. At times the word ‘Thank you’ seem so little to express your gratitude. Through this note I just want to convey my words of thankfulness to him.
My wife had delivered our Son at Fortis LaFemme under Dr. Pratima Reddy and it was there we came across Dr. Sreenath who heads the Pediatrics department there.
All was well for the first 15 days for my baby until the 16th day when he got high grade fever ranging up to 104.2F. He was not taking his Mother’s milk and continuously crying incessantly. Utterly concerned with the unusual fever at this stage, we rushed to the hospital where he was delivered to find Dr. Shalini.
Understanding the gravity of situation she recommended to admit my infant in NICU immediately. She contacted Dr. Sreenath and made him aware of the situation. He was given paracetamol to bring down the temperature but there was no relief whatsoever. He continued to make painful sounds.
Doctor Sreenath diagnosed my baby the next day Morning and suggested a series of medical tests including the CRP, PCT and others. The initial reports suggested late onset of sepsis which is nothing but the bacterial infection. He recommended antibiotics with the likes of amic acid and peptas which helped in his treatment to a great deal. Later to understand the root cause he suggested Molecular DNA test to understand the presence of micro-organisms and treat with the right medicine. Dr. Sreenath prescribed complete 15 day anti-biotic treatment so that the infection does not haunt back in my neonate.
I vividly recall in his first counselling he explained the situation being empathetic truly sensing our concern. I cherish his words that he treats every children like his own and give his best. He even consoled my wife uttering in hindi, our mother tongue, though not his. I was amazed with his compassion and passion towards his job.
What amazed me was his accuse sense of personal responsibility. ** ** ************* ******* listens to the patients/guardians well and does best to provide the right treatment with a phased approach ensuring the problem is treated from root level and not just the surface. Dr. Sreenath is a Go-To Doctor when it comes to your pediatric needs.
Thank you and God bless.
