During an emergency, my parents have visited him. It was a only session we had with him. We were able to get into the consultation within 30 minutes. ****** *** ***** His advice and treatment was helpful to us.
Punctual clear met daughter separately first hguvibg assurance, and has hopefully given the correct medicine & vitamins
Hospital asked 1000 as consultation but in practo it was mentioned as 500. Poor management by the hospital.
Consultation was done on time. There was no waiting period. Happy with the staff and Hospital but the doctor was a very normal person. Did not clarify or explain the health condition or treatment. Not much satisfied with him. Also unnecessary tests and admissions were suggested which are of no use. Will not recommend this doctor to anybody.
