Me and my spouse had been consulting a reputed diabetologist for my spouse's diabetes and my prediabetes. However, I needed to get my dose of thyronorm adjusted. I talked to my diabetologist who explained to me that he was only a diabetologist and that I should consult an endocrinologist for adjusting my thyronorm dosage.

From past 2 months I m seeing dr Khandelwal n he has changed some of medications.. Now my glucose levels are well in control..
The experience was not so good. Doctor charges Rs 700 but did not listen to our exact problem. Just prescribed the same medicines which was prescribed by MBBS doctor, nothing sort of specialist experience. The bad part was that he did not even listen or discussed about our exact problem and did not provide answer to our questions.
