Visited For Ankylosing Spondylitis Treatment
I have been suffering from Ankylosing spondylitis for the last forty years and have consulted six rheumatologists so far (two specialists in Kolkata, one in Vellore, and three in Bengaluru). After taki I have been suffering from Ankylosing spondylitis for the last forty years and have consulted six rheumatologists so far (two specialists in Kolkata, one in Vellore, and three in Bengaluru). After taking into consideration domain knowledge (as far as an informed lay person can understand), sincerity and concern for the patient, application of mind, and transparency, I would say without a shred of doubt that Dr. Vijay K R Rao is by far the finest rheumatologists I have consulted so far. He has handled my problems in a thoroughly professional manner, but his underlying human concern has been palpably clear to me all the time. He has also explained the possible negative effects of the treatment adequately.

I firmly believe my long-standing problems will be solved through the treatment plan suggested by Dr Vijay. And even if there was any negative side-effect, I would be able to deal with it with the doctor's assistance.

I simply cannot thank Dr. Vijay KR Rao enough. My best wishes to you Doctor.
