My son was 8 months old when i visited Dr. Malikarjuna. one fine mid night suddenly my son started crying and had not stopped after many remedies, was not able to understand anything, someone suggested to visit Lotus hospital as its 24/7 availability, there Mr. Malikarjuna treated him first time and updated he was having ear pain and within 10mns my son got relieved. again after few months we were travelling by train, my son got high fever, no doubt i have given medicine, but suddenly he got loose motion, vomiting and high fever. was not able to understand anything and waited till arrival, so from station again i had rushed to Lotus hospital without checking his availability. unfortunately he was off for 5 days and my son got treated by some other Dr. and still after 2 days there was no improvement, being a mom i was not able think anything was thinking to visit some other hospital but before that i have checked Dr. Malikarjuna's availability, in hospital they have confirmed that he is available from the next day, so i waited that day and next day in the morning hrs only i have visited him and by evening my son was out of fever and very active. i felt like his touch and the right medicines cured my kid. my son is now 6yr i have never visited any other Dr except Mr. Malikarjuna. Heart full Thanks to u sir. please keep your good work and spread healthy environment.
First off, Dr. Mallikarjuna Reddy is no longer with Holistics Hospital. He's now at SHREE KRISHNA CLINIC for women & children, nizampet. We visited him recently when my daughter(age 7) had stomach flu. He was friendly, ************* and my daughter felt comfortable. I would recomend him for any pediatric consultation.
