he always simplifies the issue,and does not create panic within parents,which is the most I like about him..
We are visiting Dr. P. Saxena since our baby was bourn. Couple of times our infant got quite sick due to stomach infection, high fever n cold and each time we have found Dr. Very very helpful. Recovery was very fast and medicines given helped a lot.
Visited for vaccination to the Doctor.As I had missed his routine schedule.Explained in detail ,the vaccinations needed for his age.Doesnt prescribe all vaccination needed as I had consulted to some Doctor who had advised each and every vaccination which was left.Very professional and humble and least concern for money earning behaviour.Thanks.
