The doctor is very friendly and has a holistic approach in treating the mental illness. He puts in a lot of effort to treat the illness of the patient through therapy, counseling and medication. Even when I moved to a different city, the doctor helped a lot in my treatment.
Dr Srikant Sharma treated my father for schizophrenia. He was suffering since 2001. Sometimes his condition was extremely critical that he got admitted many times. With Dr Srikant Sharma we started last year and have noticed improvement. I recommend him. And also to family members of patients with care and support even toughest times can be overcome.
Dr Srikant Sharma is a friendly Doctor, who makes me feel comfortable in discussing the issues. He understands the concern clearly. He always tries to help out no matter where I am. I am really grateful to him. I think from my experience till now, he is a born psychiatrist.
Dr Srikant Sharma is highly recommended for depression & hopelessness. My friend consulted him and he feels much better now. He was in adverse conditions earlier but now he’s recovered. Thank you doctor.
