Took my mother in law for her dizziness issue, Dr.Vikas spent quality time in examining her and then patiently explained the probable causes pertaining to her issue.
excellent and very professional. Tries to understand the patient's point of view and explain the condition frankly with the patient
I am following up with this doctor for the past 3.5 years for my son, who is now 10 Years old, he was identified as ADHD & Epileptic, and got a severe attack when he was at the age of 7, and hospitalized and treatment given by a different doctor and he recovered. For the subsequent visit, I consulted for the first time Dr.Vikas, where he advised to take a fresh EEG and prescribed drugs, after 4 - 6 visits in 8 months duration, the observed epileptic pattern differed and therefore we approached CMC-Vellore, where after fresh diagnosis, he was declared as non-epileptic. Later went to different top & specialized doctors at Salem, Trichy and back to chennai for another neurologist and undergone treatments for about 1.5years, found no improvements except worsening him more. Finally I came back to Dr.Vikas at his age 9 and Dr. Vikas asked to take a fresh MRI & EEG at Saravana Scans Nandhanam, with the help of this scan report, he started fresh treatment with new set of drugs and now my son is 10.5 years, he is recovering at a faster rate and I can say he is 80% normal, for full understandings about my son brain activity, and for revising drugs (if required), Dr.Vikas advised us to take 3-4 X 24Hrs VEEG, since the cost was too high for this, he recommended to take atleast overnight cum 24 Hrs VEEG, for further better treatment.
I 100% recommend , without second thought, for any neurological disorders, you can go for consultation and post your experiences and opinions, for many others to get benefited. I also wish and pray God for Dr. Vikas Agarwal's good health and happiness, for him to serve the society.
This is my 2nd review of the doctor and I am happy to do it because of how amazing my experience is with him for the past 2 years of treating my brother..To give a brief background of my brother, he's a special child with neuro issues including epilepsy..Dr.Vikash has a very keen eye for his patients conditions and not to mention his caring attitude as well..He's really detailed during his consultations and is patient while we respond..the doctor also explains the reasons for the medication he's prescribing in lay mans term for us to understand..Also in case of any emergency the doc is always available to contact to put our minds at ease.I have also recommended my childhood friend to him because she has neuro issues as he one of the best from my experience..I hope Dr.Vikash continues his good service that benefits to many more people like my brother and my friend..I would definitely suggest Dr.Vikash Agarwal to anyone without hesitation as such amazing doctors are rare in our country where medical field is treated as a very profitable venture.
I visited Dr.Agarwal for my Wife headache issue, the issue was persistent for more than a year, multiple doctors were not able to diagnose properly therfore I was keep multiple docs including Siddha & AyurvedicAfter all the recommendations were failing, I just google for best Neurologist and made a choice for visiting Dr. Vikas and it's been one of the best choice I've made.🅿🆁🅾🆂* Good location, clinic is main road and Google maps points exact location.* waiting Area is clean & comfortable chairs* Receptionist is very responsive* Doctors listens to complete history and prescribes only required amount of medicines and even ask us to come after 10days and I'm writing this after my 2nd visit and now he asked us to come after 3months, he prescribes for what is required and medicines are easily available in any pharmacy, there is no tie up with any particular pharmacy which normally doc has, so getting the medicine easily available in medplus or Apollo makes life more easy* Doctor is ************* * very friendly, he assures the patient and gives them confidence everything will be alright and making the patience belive in the treatment is half battle won.* I recommend Dr. Vikas for neurology related issues🅲🅾🅽🆂* No car parking* Bike parking is also limited* 500 consultation fee is same for even 2nd visit, but again 500 is very affordable compared to his treatment, having said that we expect repeated visit to be slightly cheaper.RgdsMadhu
Doctor is so polite and hearing the patient's exact problem. I will recommend this doc for headache.
Dr Vikash is extremely friendly and approachable, I highly recommend this doctor because he sort of listens to all of your concerns first, analyses and then provides a solution/medication.
I felt extremely comfortable, and calm since this was my first time visiting a neurologist, he will make sure you are relaxed and your concerns are addressed.
This is the first visit and I felt that he is friendly and explains the problem in layman terms. Besides, I also felt he tries to prescribe minimum medicines and basics exercises.
As of now satisfied with the diagnosis
I had an appointment with Dr. Vikash Agarwal for migraine treatment in his neuro clinic guindy. He was a very friendly person and he explained my problems very patiently, so that me and my husband where very clear about my health condition. He has also prescribed a tablet for me which is safe during breastfeeding (I am a breastfeeding mom of a 10 month old baby). Moreover he doesn't prescribe tablets for a new actively breastfeeding mother. I was really happy with his approach and he has asked me to come for a review after a month. I would love to consult him for my further treatment.
Just had a consultation today., would like to give more than 5 star if possible. Spends 15 to 20 mins per patient based on the need. Give special care and extra attention to elderly persons.
Though I haven't started the medicine, yet I'm sure I will be cured if I follow the advice of Dr.Vikash.
