4 clinics for General Consultation
Yet to visit the hospital. Good response from the management as well as their concern about patients.
I was having consistent stomach pain for almost 10 days on and off. Booked video consultation with Dr. Deepthi. She patiently listened to all my problems with stomach and suggested medication for 5 days. I started feeling normal after taking medicines for 4 days. She was also very responsive through phone and texts. I am overall very satisfied with her consultation. Highly recommended.
Dr Deepti is very friendly and to the point when it comes to sharing treatment options. Treatment was done as per schedule and precautions were at par given the covid situation.
