Our baby who was born before the term with low weight was under treatment of Doctor Sreenath for a period of more than a month in NICU. Thanks to his experience and the fatherly support, we could go through that phase relatively easily. He never misses even one counselling session with the parents, never ever make you feel worried and also ensuring that the correct information is passed on to the parents. His attitude towards the use of technology as well as natural techniques for the treatment is quite noteworthy. Even after taking the baby home, he is available throughout and that gives us so much confidence in handling the new born baby. He is one of the doctors who can be relied upon for receiving the best neo natal support as well as paediatrics.
Dr. Sreenath played a big role in our journey so far with our bundle of joy. Our baby was delivered at Fortis and about a week old, when he started developing frequent vomiting, refusal of feed and weight loss. Dr. Sreenath suggested re admitting to NICU as he suspected some infection. After further tests, his instincts were spot on and his treatment greatly solved the issue and put our baby back on the growth track. Thanks to his timely intervention, we're so relieved to see our baby normal and with us at home now. Even after the delivery, he was always approachable and answers all our queries during counselling and helped us absorb the stress of dealing with a pre term. Despite his calibre, he is very kind and friendly and this makes us worry free in our journey ahead. We know we always have Dr. Sreenath and his team at Fortis. Thank you doctor. We're sure you will play an important role in our beautiful journey ahead.
He is extremely patient and understanding. During COVID-19 lockdown my biggest problem was traveling with a newborn as we were stuck. He not only guided how the travel could be possible but gave helpful tips. Thank you Sir as we would not have reached home safe & sound without your help. Henceforth we have been consulting him online over a number of issues including starting solids. He has been very helpful and responds promptly to our problems no matter how silly they sound. The best thing is that he doesn't make you wait, not even online. I would believe every single word he would say for my baby's well-being such is the blind faith we have had in him from our first appointment.
Owing to the current Covid situation we were a little apprehensive in visiting a pediatrician with our new born in person and decided to do a video consultation. With Doctor Sreenath I was 100% satisfied with the consultation. He was patient and friendly and heard us out completely with our doubts and concerns and advised accordingly. I would definitely recommend him to new parents.Thanks doctor!
I had a pre term baby and she was shifted to Fortis hospital under Dr Sreenath's care . I was very stressed and tensed initially as I had no clue about preterm process until I met Dr Sreenath. The way Doctor Sreenath explained the entire concept n process to me and the assurance that he gave me was remarkable. I felt much lighter and better after meeting Dr Sreenath.
He never missed any counseling session with us and always ensured all our questions were answered. He is very approachable n very patient with us which is hardly a trait nowadays. The best part about Dr Sreenath is he makes the entire process very easy n simple with a smile on his face which in turn helps us to ease out our pain n stress.
Finally am back home with my baby and all thanks goes to Dr Sreenath for handing me my baby safe and healthy. We will be always grateful to him.
Thank you Doctor n God bless.
I consulted him for my 5 month old daughter dysentery. Being a first time mom, I was so anxious and nervous. He comforted and explained the issue so well. He was extremely patient and understanding.
**** ****** *** would definitely recommend.
We were very satisfied with the treatment and he was very approachable.
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!
He is like a family doctor now... I show my both kids .. he is very friendly and his key is patience ... He is reachable anytime and if out of station , he guides correctly. My kids love him.

We are satisfied that we could get all our queries answered and by making us feel confident by explaining what is normal and what is not related to baby growth , especially on the flat head my baby as got and related to the nutrition that a mother can add irrespective without hesitation . Thank you doctor.
