The doctor is friendly and able to understand our problems. His guidance will create confidence for the patient. In my case, I have approached the doctor for surgery but the doctor advised me to take medicine for a particular period and then he will decide on surgery if need. This is a peculiar situation as everyone knows that the present doctors are advising surgery for each and every minor problem to make money. In fact, I was advised immediate surgery by my earlier doctor. God bless Mr.Raghavan a good Doctor.
