I had fever, chest pain for about a week. Was suffering badly but dint understand what was so wrong. Showed 2 other doctors before her and dint feel like there was a clarity on how to go about the treatment. I went to her during my sickest time after being hospitalized at other place for a week. When I understood the problem was related to lungs as she was treating my dad for quite sometime(another story), I shifted my hospital immediately and joined under her care. She was so attentive and took charge of the situation. Its bad when you suffer the disease and also have to make these decisions of where to get admitted, who to show, how to trust, if the treatment given is right? She told me that i have Pneumonia and it was quite elevated by then(not being given the right treatment earlier). She treated me for a week and I felt better. I am still getting treated by her for my Tuberculosis and get amazed every time I visit her for the review. She explains the problem and the solution with great clarity. She is crisp and to the point. Love the way she deals with her patients. When you are physically ill for a long time it hits you emotionally too. Doctors like her can really help you with the both.
Dr. Anuradha is a very well experienced doctor. She just knows what's right for the patient at the moment. The treatment is very apt and I'm fully satisfied with her treatment. She also explains the things in an understandable manner.
