I was treated for pilonidal sinus by Dr Vijay Arora. He is very efficient doctor and his Ever readiness and quickness in responding to the exigency of the patients makes him further more respectable. A good surgeon is one who reads a patient's body completely and operate on it accordingly..he treated my sinus problem with primary closure initially and later let it go for open wound healing (its because due to my low immunity I developed infection for which doctor already warned me before surgery) due to gangaram hospital being far away from my place I got my dressing changed from a nearby doctor nd to my surprise he told me there is serious infection in your wound and you have to be operated again. very next day I visited dr. Arora and enquired About the progress in my wound. He listened to me patiently and told me I am healing and nothing to be worried about .i followed his guidelines (best decision i made) and in one month my wound closed completely with no infection left.I thanked my doctor for being patient enough to answer all my queries and never let me panic.surgery includes a certain procedure to be followed on a patient's body but what distinguishes an extraordinary surgeon from an ordinary one is his capability in handling post surgical complications effectively without letting a patient panic because everyone has got different immunity level and your body may develop few complications but it depends on your doctor whether he is competent enough to handle it later without making u panic.
it was very surprised that no one having information about the doctor's timing since he was no available till 6.00 p.m. and at reception only one reply was that please wait but they have no information.
