Wait time was very less. He inspected the wound and gave medicines. Was mildly dissatisfied with the consultation fee. He had asked me to come for follow up and he collected half fees the second time. Most doctors don't collect consultation for follow ups. That aside, I was very satisfied with the treatment and diagnosis.
Dr.Mani listened to my health problems patiently .He explained in detail my clarifications regarding laser hair removal .Instead of simply prescribing medicines or treatment he was keen to understand the underlying cause of the health issue. I am happy with the consultation.
Very nice person having lots and lots of patience to listen to your problems. After explaining your problem that you have, then he will start checking that on a very good observation and tells you directly what kind of problem you have. Medicines what he suggested are awesome as I can see the improvement of the reduction of sunburn in just a day.
The doctor was very understanding and after hearing my problem he explained me the reason and what needs to be done. I have started my treatment and I am happy with the guidance he provided. Since hair fall problem takes taime to show the progress so I have to wait for sometime to provide my satisfaction for the treatment. As of now I am happy with the guidance he provided.
