Indeed, the most treasured of doctors I have been privileged to meet. Dr. Beena Bansal is friendly and passes on her positivity to you. I have always been reluctant to speak to doctors, but she makes things easier and you want to share with her. Along with being a renowned and a wise doctor, she’s a gem of a person. I would highly recommend her.
