Well I had visited Dr. Devipriya (sits in the same clinic) on 13-09-2016 for a minute issues, there was a tiny fish bone got stuck into my throat since 3 days. She checked it properly through her equipments and found nothing I guess it must have got removed by its own during the last meal. Still I had some priking sensation. She is very nice good treatment. But I feel she is extremely over priced. I have paid Rs 1000 for this general check to see whether the tiny bone is there or not. Thanks...
