We consulted doctor for skin infection. She is polite and patinetly listened to our problems (which we normally don't experience with most of the specialist doctors.)
Good, calm and patient doctor. She analyzes the problem in depth and provides medication. But the people at the reception are rude.
Doctor was thorough in understanding my hair loss problem and patiently explained the treatment plan in the online video consultation. I would not have felt more satisfied even with personal consultation.
Doctor is very Patient hears our problems and suggests us **** medicines.Very happy with the appointment
