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.
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.
