Treatment has just started three days back. Got good relief with prescribed medicines. Hope to get well soon.
One word fo this doctor -Excellent!!! I was suffering from Peptic Ulcer due to which I was feeling high heart rate, shortness of breath and palpitations. I visited vipul few days ago and was very much afraid of any sort of heart failure or stroke but Vipul gave me a pill of relaxation by explaining the effect of peptic ulcers on heart and then I got a sigh of relief. Vipul did not recommend any unnecessary tests like ECG or other blood tests. He just prescribed me to continue to with my ulcer medicines (PPI) and Heartburn & Indigestion liquid medicine and just asked me to come after 7 days if any problem persists. Nowadays, I am feeling very much relieved from Ulcer and other heartburn like worries. Thanks Vipul, made me smile again and God bless you :)
The doctor is a humble person with no airs around. Knows his job well , explains the illness to the patient with ease and in a way which the patient as a layman can well understand . You have all diagnostic facilities within the clinic which saves you from running around for several tests and also saves on time. His team is well versed with their jobs and there is no reason to regret going to him.
Very humble doctor, satisfied with his advise And counselling.
