Doctor was excellent and terrible services......
Dr. Priya Chandrasekhar Biswakumar is easily oneof the most trustworthy doctors in our city. She picks up on the health issues and addresses the parents' concern appropriately. Of course she usually has many patients waiting but she's worth the wait.
If a baby needs a vaccine ,it should be done patiently not in a hurry...since my niece came from Australia the vaccine BCG was not available at time of birth in australia,so came here to do it..this dr was in great hurry ,just took one minute,pricked the baby and said after that only left arm can be given and there will be puss and swelling after two months and then a scar
We visited this Dr last month for my 2mo baby. She was very impatient and never listened to anything we said. She was very fast in jumping to conclusions even before enquiring us properly. I don't know if she is generally a rude person or she was in a hurry to end the consultation. However experienced a Dr could be having respect towards patients is what i would look in. Won't recommend it for parents who want a Dr who pays attention and has patience to answer queries.
