Dr Gautam is very ethical doctor . I was admitted and treated for viral fever by Gautam sir. He will treat with minimum medicines and gives well suited advise for curing the problem. My wife also got treated by Dr Gautam by chikungunya and we are completely satisfied with the treatment.
very patient in listening to the problems, explained his diagnosis and proposed treatment.my father was admitted in his care at KIMS hospital for 7 days, and 10 days after his discharge, Dr gautam remembered him by name and treatment. doesn't insist for unnecessary tests or place of tests
I believe a doctor is all about diagnosis..diagnosis is all about time and patience. Dr. Gautam gives a patient both time and hears you with patience. And he allows you to speak up your issues, his medicines are really working well for me. highly recommend him.
