“Dr. Tarun sir is fantastic. I recommend him highly..he responds to my queries with an immediate phone call! It is clear that Dr. Tarun cares for his patients and does everything possible for a positive outcome. thank you
He is a great human being. He listened to me over phone and sent me the prescription over SMS . In today's mean world I have least expected this. I would recommend this doctor to each and everyone out there. I had a great experience
Visiting Columbia Asia even for small treatment like Gastic problem and going under Dr. Jhamb is one of the biggest pain to your body and your pocket. Even after spending a huge money you come out dis-satisfied, angry and wasted of your time and money. Highly recommend not to go under such doctor consultation.
