2 clinics for General Consultation
I was little bit before my appointment time. His attendant was very nice and coperative. Dr. Shashidhar attended us very well. He took all my father's previous history, test reports, physical examination and wrote prescription with two tests only instead of bundle of irrerelevant tests as we generally experience in big hospitals, clinics etc. He also assured that nothing is so significant and will be all set right in short duration with slight medication.
I would say i am quite satisfied with the analysis of the Dr Shashidhar. I visited Medanta Gurgaon before visiting Dr. Shashidhar and to sum up i would say doctors in Medanta just take you for a ride and write a long list of tests that need to be done and ask you to consult other doctors in Medanta of different departments [on your past medical history and for which you don't have any problems now] - This way Medanta keep making money on lab tests and doctor consultancy, they dont even feel the pain how a person would support all this financially their only aim that come to my observation is to bring the person on surgery mode and sound everything very complicated.
I am very hapay to treatment method of Dr. Dhar. He is completely explain my prblem and sutsfy me. Give full time to me explain my previous problem.
