Very good response, and explained us about the issue ,he is friendly and simple. Doctor is not money mined.
Great place for anything related orthopaedics. There was hardly any wait time. X-ray and physiotherapy were quick as well.
Hi.. I have visited the doctor twice once for me and other for my sister. We both have same problem which is disc bulge. For me after thoroughly checking MRI film and reports doctor have suggested the bulge is mild and surgery not required. This can be treated with medicine and physio therapy.
The Dictor was very friendly and diagnosed actual problem with initial interaction and explained the treatment vividly
