He is a very responsible and excellent Professional He is role model to many Young doctors in this field In India we need doctors like him who are doing so well for the society . I wish him all the best .
Doctor Mr. Gopinath is very punctual in his service & with friendly attitude. I had chronic health issue and had diagnosis with many docs in past but that has not helped me much with their medications. But, Mr. Gopinath has diagnosed me with correct illness & also prescribed the ***** combination of medicines. I am feeling better than before after 2 weeks of medication. I am waiting for my 2nd session and hope, will get recovered soon from my chronic illness. I recommend him for everyone who suffer from mental illness. Thank you so much sir.
