Doctor was very friendly and patient in explaining details. She was not persuasive on one thing but was willing to give options as well. Would recommend.
It was a minor issue so she examined and said there was no need for medication. Liked that the appointment was fixed for 11am and she was there on time.
Meenakshi ma'am was really polite and made me comfortable by listening my problems patiently. I like to thank her for all the support and service she is providing during this pandemic. And her response to the queries were so quick.
Writing this Story as a Husband from my Mother's ID.We visited Dr.Meenakshi 2 weeks back for prolonged stomach pain for my wife. Since it was during lockdown, doctor first asked for our problems in Phone inorder to avoid unnecessary travel due to COVID season. She gave initial diagnosis in phone and told to take us scans and she didn't charge for the initial diagnosis also she told that she will examine in person only if there is a real necessity. But since we need to meet the doctor after results we contacted and went to meet her. She was examining well and took really good time to explain the issue and gave lot of advice with less medicine to treat my wife. We were completely satisfied and i recommend Dr.Meenakshi for those who looking for the friend who can treat not as a Doctor
