I was extremely nervous before going there. But Dr. Soni was extremely warm and friendly. It gave me hope and am extremely grateful to her for that.
****** **** ****** **** giving nice explanations going till the debt of the problem understanding the patients mental illness and give treatment according to that im really satisfied and happy with doctor's treatment i will recommend all of you to visit her once.
I had my first appointment with Dr Anju mam on 7th June for my various psychological and physical health issues. I have had 4 sessions so far and i am alomst feeling normal. She listens very patiently without any judgement. She takes scientific assessment about the problem and guides us accordingly rather than giving advice or suggestion. It is more of creating self awareness n self love. I have been suffering from obesity for almost 18 yrs now. I have tried every single way to lose weight but have failed due to lack of self motivation n other psychological issues. Now i have lost close to 5 kgs in a month by religiously following her diet n guidance. I am more happy and content now. I was even suicidal at some point before consulting her. Now i am completing feeling normal like others and have found a new perspective of life. Thank You will not be enough to express my gratitude for Anju mam. I will stay mentally n physically fit and that's how i could express my gratitude to her. She s indeed an god sent angel who has loads of positive vibes. Her clinic is very neat and you can visit during this covid time too. I strongly recommend Dr Anju mam for any of your physical n psychological issues. Good luck!
She is very patient and caring. She understands our issues well. She is also very friendly.
