Spends Quality time with the PATIENT and FAMILY MEMBERS
Very friendly doctor who listens to the patient with lots of patience!I was sweating profusely since 5 days due to wrong medication.Thanks for extending your helping hand!I'm perfectly alright now.
On recommendation from Dr. Satya regarding latent TB and its effects on reproductive in-fertility went to see Dr. Vijayalakshmi Balakrishnan. Once discussions underway few minutes into the appointment with Dr. Vijayalakshmi, she abruptly cut off the discussion and referred back to Dr. Satya. I had come out of Dr.'s office with my questions un-answered.
After coming back to reception, she sent a nurse to charge an extra Rs.400 for a total of Rs.1000.
This has come across as being insensitive and not worth a visit for the money spent.
She prescribes few medicines & give priorities to diet ,which is highly appreciable. Very friendly in nature!Highly recommended!
Fees quite costly Rs.800 per consultation is huge.
very friendly, very understanding of the ailments and most importantly, asked the relevant questions
Very patient in explaining all my doubts wid a smiling face
I will recommend the doctor to my family
