Dr. Alam is very accommodating and talks to you like you are his friend and not a mere customer. He guides you through the whole process and explains any doubt you have about a particular procedure. I was able to gain much of my pre-surgery strength in my left leg under his guidance.
Mr. M Alam and his team were patient, understanding and very helpful. The treatment and care provided was A class. The visiting timings are flexible, the doctors are available on call and ready to solve every problem. My One month experience was wonderful and I still go back time to time just to pay them a visit
