Transparent , Directionally sensitive , a doctor who calls a spade ---a spade.
He is thorough and patient in addressing all your queries, however simple or medically challenging. A doc who invests his time, unconditionally.
Just close your eyes and drop by, your only commitment to your self and towards the process is to diligently follow his advice for pre n post surgery care.
Leave the rest to him, you won't be disappointed.
Thanks Doc.

Visited For Bone Fracture

The clinic is run professionally and appears neat and clean. I was able to meet the doctor within10 mins from the appointed time. Dr. Sundaram diagnosed the problem quickly and for confirmation asked for an X-ray. All of this went quite well. ********* ** ** ** ****** ** *** ***** He also has a very warm and pleasant personality. However, I would like to highlight one very questionable and unethical practice of prescribing many useless medicines from run-of-the mills pharmacy companies and then selling those medicines from the in-house pharmacy. ** ********** * ********* ** ** * ******* * * ****** ******** *********** *********** ***** ******* ******** ***************** ***** ***** ******** **************** *** ****** ***** **** ******** Except Intas Pharma, every other company appears questionable. When the same composition drugs are available from relatively reputed companies at lower cost then it does not make any sense to prescribe such medicines from any tom-dick-and-harry Pharma companies ***** ** ****** *** *** ******* **** ********** ** ********* **** ********** It takes years to build a reputation and just minutes to get it destroyed. Please don't destroy your reputation. You are such a fine doctor. It doesn't fit your stature. Hope you will reflect on it and do something positive about it. Thanks. Wish you all the best. more..

Visited For Leg Pain
I had been suffering with major leg pull for many months. was not able to walk and had sleepless nights where I used to get pull in my legs. visited this doctor and my first talk with him made me feel I had been suffering with major leg pull for many months. was not able to walk and had sleepless nights where I used to get pull in my legs. visited this doctor and my first talk with him made me feel so comfortable, cos I think of doctors scares me of surgeries. He made me so comfortable that I followed all his instruction from day 1, and after a month of physio and medication, I have crossed the stage where he said I have recovered much better that I can do without any surgeries.. Thank you doctor. more..

1. When I first presented my mother's MRI in her absence (he had not seen my mom) he immediately queried about her curved back. It shows his attention to detail. ********* **********

2. Doctor establishes a quick rapport with the patients. He made my mom feel very comfortable. My mom with her simple ways does not go by logical questioning. She simply goes by faith. Her faith was well established in her first visit.

3. He has a calm demeanor and takes time to determine the kind of tests required to rule out diseases and put her through right medication.

4. You will not get the typical question of "do you have insurance"?

5. Friendly with the patients and the attendants.

6. Mother is already on her way to recovery. When we came in she was even unable to get up from the bed. Its been a month the treatment started and she started getting up from the bed on her own during the first week. Slowly she is able to sit up for food and even for a chat with us.
