Dr. Dheeraj Kapoor has rich experience in the field of endocrinology. Before being part of Artemis family, he has worked with Neelkanth Hospital, Umkal Hospital, Kalyani Hospital, Kirti Hospital, Gurgaon, Rockland Hospital, Northpoint Hospital and Orthonova Hospital, New Delhi.
I've been to him once and from the one meeting it seemed to me that I have found a good endocrinologist / diabetologist to build a long term relationship with.
Other than consultation, the doctor also helped me with all the support for my son going through a surgical procedure at Artemis. It was very reassuring to know that someone is there. He is a wonderful human being apart from being an excellent doctor.
He is an excellent endocrinologist and believes in patient friendly treatment.
Very friendly doctor, he gave his full time and explained the issue well.
