The treatment given was relatively satisfactory. But the doctor didn't give sufficient time for the consultation. After waiting for half and an hour or so, I was not given much time to discuss the issues. Moreover, I had been there with my 80 years old mother and it was highly disappointing for not able to get a complete consultation. I know he is a very busy doctor but I expect them to have little patience towards the patient. So, particularly at this part, I am not satisfied with him *** *** ********* *** *****
I am very much satisfied to meet a righteous doctor where my diagnosis and treatments really went well and now I am under Home Care treatment which was also suggested by the same doctor. I would surely recommend him.
Dr Srinivas is very friendly. Patiently listened to me and suggested remedies
