Visit to the doctor was useful and informative. Would recommend him to other patients as well. **** *******
I was suffered with sever stomach pain and approached doctor, very shortly diagnosed kidney stone problem.
Punctuality and friendliness. My suggestion is that hygiene is required toilets especially during this pandemic situation.
Dr. G. Vezhaventhan diagnose our problem well & give a very good treatment, actually I will consult him for any health issue first & then as per his advice I will see a specialist to whom he recommend, very friendly in nature. A Doctor should always diagnose the problem at the first visit itself which many doctor will miss they ask us to take many test like scan, X –ray etc. But Vezhaventhan diagnose well and also ask us to take test for a confirmation and start treatment well.
