I am his patient last few years he is a good Dr patiently listen to the patient and give ***** medicine
Dr. Venkatakarthikeyan was very professional in his analysis of my blocked left ear/pain. No nonsense, straight to the analysis. Doctor has given nasal drops & pills to resolve the problem and medication already taking effect - I do feel that ear blockage has reduced, can hear better.
I met the doctor for blocked ears. He recommended some tests and an x-ray. Now, I am not getting appointment to show my report and get treatment. This is not fair. When I call for appointment, the lady who answers the phone is rude and she says no appointment available. How do I get treatment?
