*** ** *** **** ****** **** **** ****** ** ******* ** **** ******** *** ***** ******** I've been under her supervion for more than 3 years now. One the best thing about her is openness. She gets to the bottom of the problem unlike someone who suggest only medication for cure. She has been very kind to me and helped me to get back my confidence and also provided guidance how to think rationally on various matters. I've great respect for her and will strongly recommend to anyone.
I had visited several doctors previously but were of no help. She started my treatment 5 years back , it took some time to be in control of my body that too i took several breaks in visiting her. She has listened to my problems every time and guided me well.it was during one of my appointments, she asked me if she could attend the other patient whose appointment was after me since his family members were very impatient. It is quiet natural to get annoyed or angry sometimes since they are human beings too.regardsrohitrohit dass
She enquired in details about my problems and spoke to my spouse as well. She diagnosed the problem and gave me medication which I am following now and have got results in a few days . In my follow up visit she again enquired me in details about my improvements, if any and made alteration to the medication accordingly. * **** *** **** ******** **** *** ********* ** *** *********** She is also someone who sees things holistically which is quite rare these days. She also comes across to be very confident and at the same time humble and friendly with her patients. I would definitely recommend her to as many possible in my known circle.
We were expecting some concrete advice from the doctor for the future of patient but the doctor spent 15 minutes in describing the past which we anyways knew. Doctor was in hurry to wind up the discussion in allotted time of 15 minutes and charged us Rs. 1200/- .
