I have been consulting the doctor for 3 and half years for my daughter. Doctor is friendly, clearly explains the problem and no panicness is created
Dr. Manigandan was the doctor who came on rounds to assess the health of my newborn in cloudnine.
*** ********** ** *** ** *** **** ******* ****** ** *** ******* *********** He is very approachable. Initially he gave first aid medicine for my daughter's illness over phone as it occurred at night where in I could not take her to doctor. Later on the next day he examined my child and gave prompt treatment. He doesn't panics the parent and put them under stress by over exaggerating a health issue unlike few other doctors. He doesn't give medications or antibiotics unless really required. He remembers patients history and enquires about the well being of the child in due course of time. Which is so considerate and friendly.
I've met the Dr 2 years back when there was a conflict with another pediatrician and he specially handled the situation with ease and to our complete satisfaction. Consulted him today and he is still the same warm and friendly pediatrician who is very patient with kids and truly caring. I would recommend him for all pediatric needs.
