He used to posset t Well it would take sometime for me to put together my experience. My son has cow's milk protein allergy. This was diagnosed only by Dr. Dhanasekar and none of the other doctors did. He used to posset too much after feedings and the most experienced doctor whom I was consulting (Dr. N. Srinivasan) in mylapore advised me to give domstal between every feeds without having the idea of what my son was actually suffering from. When I approached that doctor to suggest an alternate formula milk for my son, since I had to resume office after maternity break, he suggested to give aavin milk in a diluted form. When I tried this without knowing the underlying cause of my son's excessive possetting, he had severe bouts of vomiting and became drowsy...we rushed him to the doctor and he diagnosed and said my son has to admitted and given IV and if the vomiting doesn't subside he said a scan needs to be taken for further diagnosis. I was in an utter shock but by God's grace my son recovered automatically after the milk was digested. He put my son on another formula and when we tried that again the same scary vomiting episode. This time the doctor was very cool, asked me to give him domstal and try another formula. He would have prescribed almost all the formula milks available in the market to try one after another. Also my son had itchy rashes around his eyes which is a very typical symptom of CMPA (which I wasn't aware that time) and when I asked that doctor, without even examining he gave a very quick answer that it is a birth mark. The possetting episodes never stopped and I was not at peace and hence started researching and found all about this allergy and was again researching on a good doctor who would treat this kind of infant problems. and that's When I found Dr. Dhanasekar and he has to be thanked a million times. When we first time walked into the clinic he doctor at the very look of my son said he is suffering from CMPA and he put me on an elimination diet ie a diet free from milk and milk products first and observed a few days and eliminated some more stuff which could be causing the allergies and thereafter my son's possetting and eczema (rashes around his eyes) started curing off. A big thanks to Dr. Dhanasekar for his services. He is a boon to the medical industry. He spends ample time for each patient and he is a passionate pediatrician. A doctor who matches international standards. A great doctor really. more..

I personally believe that Doctors are real life Heros of our lives. Being a doctor is a noble job, their professional expertise and personal touch is priceless and Dhanasekhar sir is one such person. We all have that feeling/experience/impression when we meet and interact with someone for the first time, and I believe that it's more than enough to testimony for them and the impression which doctor left is remarkable. Be it the ambience (crafted for kids, of course he is a pediatrician, but how many does that), *** *** ********* **** ** *** ****** ** his experience which he carries is evident in every conversation, the way he inquires/probes/diagnos and understands us and the suggestions he provide,the golden rules displayed and especially the way he handled my 3 Months old daughter, man I was awestruck.
