Hi all !!
I visited Dr shard chandra through my cousin doctor shivraj patil for my Dad angiographm and stents. Doctor is one of the most experienced cardiologists in India. ** ** * *** ***** ****** *** ***** He has magic in hands. The way he performed stenting was just amazing. Very happy with his treatment.
Neatly explained all issues. Was cordial in general and showed concern towards patients. Overall a good positive experience with the Doctor.
Went to hospital after calling. Waited for two hours after paying consultation fee only to be told that the Doc is busy with some conference. Miscommunication galore. Will not recommend this doctor/hospital.
