second time visiting the doctor this time with my mom, he was completely patient with our queries took time to explain the cause of the condition and the various options we have. he made us really comfortable
It is my first visit to doctor.. Really a humble and gentle explain the problem briefly. Very friendly I recommend Dr. Syed shakeel..
Very kind doctor. He is very warm and caring. I went to his clinic in the non-appointment hours but still he had accommodated me without any hesitations (but I wouldn't do the same for the next time as it would not be right). He had listened to me very patiently and also examined me for my problem thoroughly. He made me understand what exactly could be the reason for my ailment by explaining in detail. My hearty thanks to the doctor.
