Visited for Thyroid related problems. Doc was very friendly, and did not prescribe any medicine, which according to him were not required. I am happy with the way he explained the problem and solutions which I can manage by lifestyle modification. Would recommend for all endocrionological problems.
**** ******* not that I've been to many doctors for my problem. but I was pregnant and was diagnosed with thyroid. the gynae I was seeing scared me to death seeing at the report. but fortunately I met Dr. Surana, he explained that the condition isn't normal, but nothing that can't be tackled. Under his proper supervision, my thyroid got to the most perfect level within a month. more than that he is very patient and explains each and every detail in the best possible manner without scaring the patient. hope I get a good gynae like him now.
Dr. Vineet Surana is an excellent human being *** * **** **** ******* He handled the emergency situation very well for my 11 year old daughter when she got diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and attended us with patience. He helped us very well in understanding the carb count methods and encouraged my daughter to gain self confidence to take insulin shots on her own.
Very nice Doctor. Till now he is the only one to enquire about lifestyle & family medical history. I am totally satisfied with his approach towards treatment of his patients. treats everyone with equal attention.
