I have consulted with Dr.Saikiran for my Wife's body pain. It was a great experience with Doctor SaiKiran.I very rarely see such doctors in today's world. He did the diagnosis with his experience *** ********* and given first set of treatment. He asked for a revisit if pain persist and treated very minimal tablets. Even for the second visit he just made some changes to the treatment and advised to do some basic exercises which actually helped my wife to get rid of the pain.
