She is absolutely a great personality. My daughter not talked to her but also hugged her. This shows how friendly doctor can be with young toddlers who are not in good mood due to fever. She explained the medicines and our daughters issues and that calmed us a lot.Thank you so much for being so humble and supportive while listening to our daughters issues as well as whole explaining us the medical dosages.

Be it an injury, seasonal health issues, or long standing child problem ( such as constipation), Dr. Mangala’s diagnosis, treatment and friendliness with the kids and her patience with the questions/anxiousness of parents has been commendable. She shares all the required information and explains the medical problem in a layman understandable way, and her approach for treatment is very convincing. She is always available at the need of the hour and responds to any queries. Thank you very much Doctor!
