I was diagnosed with brain tumour in the year 2014.I got my surgery done by Dr.Alok Ranjan and his team of doctors who did a great job!I owe my new life Dr.Alok Ranjan and his team for doing a great job!Thankyou for giving me a new happy healthy life!
This doctor is received my mother who is 65 yrs old with very bad attitude. He was not even listening to her problems. She is facing multiple health issues such as pain in her knee joint, back , neck. He asked her to stop and mention any one problem. That was knee jerk experience for my parents who waited almost 10 days to get his appointment and traveled to HYD from Karnataka against all odds.
I had worst experience of my life ...my father had brain tumour , and we approach dr Ranjan .
