I was happy with Explanation of the health issue, Doctor friendliness, Treatment satisfaction, Wait time
I stay in Bangalore and have been suffering from painful lesions (erythma nodusum) in my right leg since June 2016. I have been to many speciality doctors in different hospitals and almost all of them had told that it is very difficult to diagnose as what we are seeing is a symptom which can occur due to multiple causes and hence they put me on steroids but with no improvement unfortunately. Then I consulted Dr Ritupurna for second opinion(and sent my reports to her online) and in the first talk itself she said that this looks like Scleroderma and not erythema nodosum. She also got my biopsy slides read from separate biopsy specialist; and it got diagnosed as Scleroderma. I was amazed to see the results of biopsy as it was exactly what she had suspected in the first go and I was on wrong treatment for so long. She gave me the confidence that she will make sure that my problem is resolved. No doctor had given me that confidence and it matters a lot when you're clueless about what is happening to you. Dr Ritupurna is very friendly, helpful, soft spoken *** *************. She patiently listened to all my queries and answered clearly in detail. Though I was consulting her from different city, she always took time out from her schedule and explained everything thoroughly. Her medicines have helped a lot and now movement is lot better. I would highly recommend Dr Ritupurna.
