I happy that I find Dr. Rajiv for my child general health care. ** ** *** **** ******* explains the things so well.
shall share my learning and experience after my 2 years old kid accidentally swallowed a small 1 INR coin which might be useful for other parents.
I must start with saying that Dr. Rajeev is one of those very few genuine doctors who practice & preach the true philosophy of a doctor in today's times it is increasingly difficult to find such a genuine and 'patient' doctor who first spares enough time to listen to your problem and then explains the possible cause and a likely solution to it, at length. one of his best things is, he prescribes medicines to the minimum unless really required. much unlike other doctors, who keep it ready to pen down a prescription as soon you hit their clinic. personally, we've been subscribing to him since our first child was born (he is 4yo now) and now even with our second child, he continues with the same spirit right from the newly born stage. another good thing about him is, he is readily available on phone and in any case if he is unable to take call , he does messages back or asks his staff to get back in touch and enquire for any urgency. all in all, he is a 5 star doctor and a Rare find. a big thumbs up to him.
