Long post alert 😌
This is dhansingh rathore, I consulted around 10 well known psychiatrist for my problem *** ***** ** * ***** *** **** **** ********* *** **** ** * ************ *** ** a good human being too , i am very grateful to God for providing me such great psychiatrist..I wish good health n happiness for him.
I visited the doctor for strange kinds of sensations in my head. I have been visiting many doctors for the same complaint from past 3 years. A major problem in Bangalore I felt is that there is no clarity which doctor to visit for these kinds of complaints. I visited general physicians, neurologists, psychiatists, ENT doctors and even non-allopathic doctors. But the problem remained the same. Even I went to the most popular neurologist of Ramaiah Medical College. But I didn't get a proper solution. I underwent a series of investigations including the costly ones like MRI, hearing tests and so many. But after all these tests, my phisician told that they are not able to diagnose and they referred tome Dr. Ravi in Family Hospital. They said that he is an expert in such kinds of cases. Really he has expert clinical skills. He conducted several tests in the OPD itself which were never done to me before. Finally they made a diagnosis of simple anxiety and gave some medications. He also explained to me in simple language why it is not Vertigo, brain or ear related problems which was diagnosed to me before. Surprisingly, my condition started improving within 1 week. Now after 3 visits, the problem is almost gone. The advantage of of Dr. Ravi is that he has knowledge of both neurology and psychiatry because of which he can test in both the directions. We need more doctors like him so that the lot of money spent in unnecessary investigations and visiting many doctors can be saved. I recommend him to everyone who is having problems in diagnosis of their symptoms, especially confused if to go to a Neurologist or a Psychiatrist.
Having read good reviews, I visited Dr. Ravi on 7th September 2017 and have been under treatment since then for depressive disorder and anxiety disorder.
