I always had a hard time making my child drink milk, or eat green vegetables or anything healthy for that matter. I was really worried becoz obviously I couldnt see my child just eating pizzas and burger. I discuused with child specialist at mayom hospital. I must say the doctor knew how to engage kids in fun conversatiobs. She talked to my son in a very friendly manner and explained him how not eating healthy food can harm his health. He also suggested a tonic and some medicine to make up for lacking nutrients. It has been more than a month and I can feel a difference already.
She has been very helpful and always ready to listen the problem first, check the symptoms as well as history of kid and then recommend the right medicine appropriate as per kids page. We have been taking her help from the day my first daughter was born. We refer her expertise from more than 8 years now.
