The doctor was very professional in his approach, conducted required tests to determine the problem and explained the results. He recommended medications and follow up after 4 to 6 months.
Good doctor, had a urine urgency and increased frequency issue for past 1 and half year, consulted many doctors in delhi, allahabad and chennai, but now after Dr. Anandan's medications am returning back to normal, he gives enough time to investigate your problem, recommends test but choice for testing lab is yours, moreover his opinions have not been money centred atleast not till now, really a good urologist..
Evethough a well experienced dr.his way.explaining the ailments to patients s not clear & his voice s not audible at.all..Not willing.to.hear patients.inconvenience to.visit frequently.. Repetition of all.investigations.withoutcaring for.patients.financial.condition..overall not.a kind dr to patients in my.opinion.
It was an extremely disappointing experience. I was confirmed an appointment for 7.40 pm. I reached his clinic by 7.30, only to see the door locked. The doctor did not bother to cancel the appointment or inform the patient. Tried calling him 4-5 times, he neither responded nor did he return my call. Sheer waste of money and time.
