I took my mom for diabetes treatment. She is 58, diabetic since last 21 years and had gone through open heart by-pass surgery 2 years back. since then we are trying to maintain desired sugar level but couldn't get through. Dr Paras gave us ample of time to understand mom's medical history, provided superb explanation over her present condition and complications that might arise in near future. He explained what are best possible treatments and how easy they are. Dr Paras eventually managed to convinced mom to move on insulin treatment. The way he managed to get through all, was really commendable.
He is a very good doctor, A cool and friendly person. He give time to the patient, listen to them very carefully. I will sure recommend him to my friends. One thing which I don't like i.e. his fee. His fee is 500Rs for 1st meeting & 300Rs for the rest following meeting. Even for showing the report you have to pay 300Rs. I met a many doctors & visited many hospitals in all these 20-25 years. I have seen a general practice everywhere that Doctor will take one fee and that is valid for next 10-15 days. No matter how many time you meet to the doctor in these 10-15 days.
***** *** *** ******* *** *** ************* same time caring, and most important listens what patient has to say patiently. Doctor Paras holds all the chatacterstics and make patients comfortable and positive about their well being. No advice of unnecessary diagnostics and medicines unlike others.
Very kind and generous . Listen very patiently to our problems.Always try to give as few medicines as he can. Makes me understand how I can avoid cold again again. Would strongly recommend this doctor because of his expertise in his field and his way of treatment.
