Very much soft spoken with
The time with doctor himself was good as he explained and listened patiently. No use of booking through Practo anyway as waiting time is common for walk in and prior appointment patients. Walked in at 11.45 am, got my turn at 1.15pm.
He is experienced *** **** **** doctor. He made comfortable environment. You asked your problems without hesitation.
Very dissatisfied It was my first visit. The way he dealt with my issue made me feel he was more interested in the fees. He didn't show much interest, never asked the previous treatment, didn't care to explain. Charged Rs. 900. Diabetes needs to treated with lot of care. I went to him tensed and I left his clinic confused. His charges are too high for the concentration he gives. Moreover, It is not necessary that doctors who charge high are good doctors.
