As he is a popular doctor, most of the times will be hugely crowded. Exceeded waiting period is kind of uneasiness. Despite this, all other things are very good. Courteous staff, standard amenities and excellent treatment are just outstanding. I will highly recommend the doctor for all. He is our family doctor too.
I am satisfied with the treatment given by Dr. Deepak Kalra. He was nice and caring. The total waiting period was around one hour as the queue was quite long that day. But the overall experience was good.
