You need to first meet an ENT Specialist who will assess if anatomically your tongue is alright or not. If any tongue ties are there, it needs to be surgically released. Then you will need to consult with a speech therapist to retrain your tongue to pronounce the letter "r" properly. Use the Practo app to select the best specialist in each speciality.
