I chosen this doctor after careful review in Practo, I would like to thank god & practo, his profile shown when I was in tough time. I had severe Diarrhea around 25 days, after many treatments and too much of antibiotics, no improvements. Finally I met him two days back at VS Hospitals. Straight away he suggested Colonoscopy, USG and Stool test for Occult Blood. Today I have undergone the procedure, where in he clearly explained during procedure that no issues in my large, small intestines. He gave me a confidence that my intestine is perfectly alright and I am perfectly on healthy condition. He suggested me to take normal diet immediate after procedure and asked to stop all medicines and suggested to take only Acti Flora only. Touchwood whoever the Doctors I consulted after procedure they respect Dr Mohammed Ali and apprised him. End of day It is not about money. It isabout satisfaction and healthy treatment which i got. Thanks to the almighty. I suggest this doctor strongly for all Gastrointestinal issues.
I feel much happy and comfortable Health condition after the treatment; I simply say that Gods Grace is in Doctors Hand.
