Am very happy and confident to tell about my experience, more than 20years ago went to him also because of my carelessness now need to address him again only because of his passion, friendly and timing as he promises. If 10 star is the end i'll fulfil it. Thank you Rajesh kumar.
Very informative and friendly doctor, who can explain our problems and suggest the best painless treatment for the same. Undoubtedly a best one for your dental treatments
He is the dentist for my entire family for more than 10 years. we like him due to his good treatment and kindness apart from his professional approach in attending patients by giving appointments immediately for those who have protruding pain in teeth. i never had refilling or problem in root canal tooth done by him or in fixing cap done so far. hence i confidently go to the doctor and he is very amicable in changing the schedule to our convenience.
Highly friendly doctor and dental treatment is painless. Clinic is kept clean and hygienic always.
