Most humble+ dedicated *** * ******** professional I have met in ages. I had this acute attack of gout and I called for an appointment through Practo on a Sunday evening for a Monday morning appointment. Due to some reasons my appointment was cancelled so I called up the number given and surprisingly it was Dr. Shaloo's direct number, she had some urgent meetings in the morning but she cared to ask me my problem and the medication I was taking as soon as I told her my condition she asked me not to cancel and come see her as scheduled (a gesture - which only a person can understand who has **** ********* ** *** sufferred this acute pain).

It was only after reading excellent reviews of the doctor over Practo, that I made an appointment with her. I was suspecting Rheumatoid Arthritis and expressed the apprehension before her. She listened patiently and then came out with her explanations. She ruled out my doubts but suspected that I may have been affected by Psoriatic Arthritis, a disease with similar symptoms. She suggested the much needed tests and I have got it done. Hoping for a proper diagnosis *** ************ ***** ********** under her guidance.
