I have been visiting him from 2006 and referred many to him, he is good, *** ************** but from last few years seems turned more money minded and commercial. the tests at the hospital are more expensive, for Ex: Chest PNS X-ray and Skull X-ray, they are charging 640/-. normally for both it is below 250/- at out side.
