A very experienced Doctor, I've never seen any Doctor who took time in hearing me out on my history, and explained me clearly what is what, the other Dr's I've been to just saw the problem and prescribed medicines.I feel very confident and half cured after spending time with him in the consultation room.He didn't prescribe no fancy topicals or face wash just what was necessary and the medicine too was prescribed after hearing out my other history of illness.
********* ****** . Experience and expertise counts. Alwarpet Apollo spectrum is well positioned to be a hit

Good experience. the treatment was good..the doctor was nice..very friendly people with lots of expereince
