Dr. Sumeet Agrawal is one of the very few Rheumatologist in Delhi-NCR who has the distinction of having a degree of DM in this specialty. He currently heads the Department of Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology at the Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon.
Visited him during a short trip to India. Developed really bad joint pain. Not only did he sort that out but also connected me to a Rheumatologist in Singapore. The transition was seamless. Overall, Wonderful experience with a wonderful doctor. Highly recommended.
Doctor is good but management is really bad. These people don't understand the value of patient's time and make you wait for more than 2 hours even if you have taken an appointment 3 days in advance.
A pleasant experience******** ******* Spends time, listens patiently, plans treatment after explaining all pros and cons.
The doctor was quite empathetic and professionally supportive in getting to know the patients problem and was quite friendly in his approach.
