Highly recommended.**** ********* **** ** *** ******makes patients very comfortable n family like.i had thyroid problem n I also told him about my occasional drinking habit n he was not at all judgemental n ofcourse advised to reduce it further.
one of my relative consulted, the way he identified the issue was not being identified by the so far consulted doctors.diabetes perspective he gave **** **** treatment and given more perception to me.a experienced doctor.
Always very bad experiences, he never cares about patient health condition,never listens properly ,in a hurry to attend next patient and to visit about another clinic ,I just started explaining my problem he finished his prescription...very rude behavior, never recommended..unfortunately less options in alwal******* *** **** ****** *** ** ** ***** **** **** *** ** **** **
It was not a pleasant experience with this visit. I was trying to explain with my health what happened one month back. I was afraid and visited same symptoms shown again. Dr. Aftab interrupts me when I'm trying say and says "what do you tell me about one months back issue, tell me what happened with you now. I was totally wondered. Because my current problem lies with my old health history(I was in bed with fever for three days). When I'm paying him. I least deserve that Doc listen to my problem and treat patients with empathy.
