We went to doctor to treat my father's joint pains and swilling in feets and hands from which he was suffering since last 2yeays. He was also having some skin decease with rashes on hands and legs, doctor identified this as psoriasis-arthritis and given treatment for this also. This was the issue from long time then joint pains we consulted many skin specialists but no resultswith the treatment doctor given we saw results with in week and by first month he improved lot better.I highly recommend the doctor.one another important thing I got here is there are many types of arthritis and many people don't know that as arthritis and takes treatment which is not suitable. The wrong treatment won't give results but worse the parent condition.my suggestion, health issues which are not curing with general treatment from long time please check is an arthritis? and treat it properly. Dr Vijay Rao sir is right person to treat it.
With in a month of time pain in legs & hands disappeared and now I am comfortable in walking and I am most satisfied with the doctor treatment because I was suffering from 3 years my 1st visit to this doctor on 26 Th January 2021
Explained in details progress of the treatment.suggested changes in the dose of the medicine. Interacted for sufficient time.
