My child is 5 years old and I have been consulting Dr Kaberi for last more than 4 years now. I came to know about the clinic from one of my friends who used to consult the doctor for her child. I live quite far from the clinic but the trust that we have developed in the doctor doesn’t let us go anywhere else nearby.
We consult the doctor for our new born baby, for vaccination, general check-up, growth consultation etc. We are first time parents and were very nervous earlier. The doctor has helped in building a lot of confidence in us. She provides the right amount of information for different scenarios making us self-sufficient in this space. Thank you, dr. Kaberi.
