I highly recommend this doctor. I was suffering by severe back pain for over two years and took various treatments such as alopathy, siddha and ayurvedha. However i got only temporary relief and pain returned with more intensity. Luckily I came to know about Dr Siddharthan through my uncle who got treated there. I consulted with the doctor and took the treatments and cured from my pain completely. Surprising thing is his treatments are given only by hands not any instruments. He said that his techniques are very successfully tried and tested in Australia. I am amazed with the results - thank you doctor. I thank my uncle also who referred this doctor
