He will suggest what actually you need. I have not seen God, the almighty,but I have meet Doctor ISM. I would suggest you all, if you have any heart problem, please go and visit him once, everything will be sought out. I have become a huge fan of Doctor I SATHYAMURTHY. Sir, I love you very much and thank you very much. I will be obliged to you till my last breath.
I waited there for about 10 minutes which is obviously a very less wait time. I just had a general consultation with him. No tests were suggested. I am immensely satisfied with the results. The hospital is also very good in services and facilities.
Though I had an appointment through practo. I was told by the doctor that this is not an appointment. We waited for more than 2 hours,when we went into his cabin, he refused to consult us and stated the appointment as invalid. Why would practo have to suggest him in first place? We came back with utter disappointment. Why can't the receptionist inform priorly to us.. It could have been managed better.
