Dr lanka krishna is like a solitaire beaming of brilliant human virtues. I pray and hope every cardiac patient gets to visit him
I had excellent experience with Dr. L. Krishna, during my tenure in NIMS as Executive Registrar. He takes most care towards the patients. I used to take the feedback from the patients as Registrar about the doctors. Most of the patients expressed their utmost satisfaction. Even after my retirement from NIMS I referred quite a no of patients to him. He has taken utmost care towards the patients. He listens to the patients coolly, keenly and gives suitable advice and treats with less medication. While treating the patient he will always be cheerful and looks the patient as one of his family members. Patient need a cardial behavior by the doctor. This sort of treatment/conduct gives more confidence and satisfaction among the patients. This sort of cardial behavior with the patients is very much in Dr. L. Krishna. He is having excellent experience in treating the cardiac patients. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Dr. L. Krishna for cardiac treatment.
I Srinivas, my Father is given treatment by Dr. Lanka Krishna.
With my experience with dr L krishna I can surely say that he's a good listener, he listens to our problems so patiently and he can be easily approached and he responds very well to his patients.
