Hi.. I consulted Dr Shipra Mathur for my 11 years old daughter for the first time and I must say she is one of the best doctors I have ever met. Soft spoken! Friendly! ************** She made my child comfortable first, patiently listened to our problem, nicely examined the child, explained the cause of the problem deeply and gave her a proper treatment. She works with you to address the health concerns rather just telling you what to do and I feel that's what any patient would expect from his/her doctor. Hats off to her patience! I remember that I asked the same question multiple times again and again everytime I visited her but she was always patient with us and explained everything so nicely all the time.
it was not the first time I visit Shipra mam. I have taking my son there from beginning highly recommended
I have visited first time for 6months old baby. I haven't found this type of goodness doctor at all. She has been extremely patient with our questions and has always been able to address our concerns and doubts.
I have visited two times to this doctor ,first time for cough & cold issue and second time for vaccination of my son,Both the time i would say listening & minimum prescription is the main key point . I would recommend this doctor for any new person visit first time.
