Very thorough in explaining the issue. Since have been through ict and ift for one week suggested ultrasound and short wave therapy. Instead of looking at x-ray looked at mri scan as that gives the root cause of the problem. Service on time, staff also well experienced and trained well to administer the treatment, makes the patient feel at ease by explaining the treatment, gave a list of dos and don'ts, clinic clean and easy to access. I recommend this clinic to all the patients who are looking for accurate and timely treatment and those who have given hope on PT where they feel nothing has worked so far. Give GVS clinic a try and feel better in terms of health and frame of mind
Visited doctor for my back pain he has done a tremondous job released my pain within 45min clinic is good environment and good staffs worth
Very friendly approach, listened and understood my problem before he started diagnosis. Explained why it could've happened and explained the treatment process and why. Checked if I was comfortable with the approach and advised what I should and shouldn't do during the treatment window. Also said that he would let me know what to do to avoid this and strengthen my muscles accordingly post treatment. Great experience, 4 more days to go and I'll update based on results.
Over all the treatment and Dr Sakthivelan was very good. I went there for my son's knee injury/pain. We did physio for 10 days and he has recovered ***** ** ****** *** rest we will have to continue the exercise for next one month and prevention for 5 months.
