We had visited the hospital and it was health problem for my mother in law. It was for kidney related. ****** *** **** ***** Even my father got treated before. Medicine was prescribed by the doctor. I am satisfied with the treatment given. I can recommend doctor to my family or friends. Protein foods was suggested. Hospitality was good. Her sugar was low. She had kidney starting stage problem. Doctor is very patient and good. My father had taken treatment before with same doctor before. From one year she is visiting doctor. She is under medication.
It was a good experience because the patient was in a critical situation and we walked on to the different hospital. The doctor suggested putting the patient into dialysis for the one month we stayed and in another hospital underwent fistula operation after that he went back to his village. The way of explanation and while talking about his behaviour was very nice with the patient but still, we didn’t continue the treatment with him. After admission when the doctor suggested for fistula operation that to when charges are very high and the nursing was bad everything time for medicines we have to tell them now is the time to give medicines to the patient and certain thing they said wrong also they were not that experienced they were under training apart from that everything was ok.
I visited the doctor regarding kidney issues for my father. The consultation was good and he tried to understand previous medications he has taken, how long conditions been. He checked previous medical reports, for the last 6 months, how it started. He put him under dialysis after 2 weeks. There was a waiting time to consult the doctor. It has to be fixed appointments that it could help better. Still, I am visiting the doctor. I would recommend the doctor to my family or friends.
Very nice and friendly explaining the current health situation and kindness makes us feel comfortable and inspecting our past record and encouraging to overcome the health issue
