I am associated with Dr. Kalyan who is our family paeditrician since last four-five year. I have regularly visited or consulted him for my children aged 5 years and 1 year. I have visited many clinics of Delhi NCR but found him one of the best Dr. who has handled case of my children very deligently. New parents always face confusion for which he is readily available. He precribe minimum medicine as per disease requirements. I am highly recomending for his services.
Doctor was very friendly listened my problem discussed past history advised about medication prescribed medicine and there doses were well briefed.
Dr. Das is friendly and understanding , and was quick to diagnose the problem. He promptly shared my prescription and medications over the WhatsApp, which is very useful. Moreover, he is also available over phone, if issues persist. Excellent experience so far.
He listens the problems elaborately and assures very nicely.His enquiry about my baby is very legitimate.
