Doctor was on time and immediately he examined my body and informed me the issue and gave medication and explained me to take care of the things I should, and he is very clear *** **** *******
Dr explained vv clearly about the problem what I am facing and also how to overcome through that(regarding food, medicine usage etc)...I have visited 2 different hospitals before for the same issue and they suggested for surgery...but Dr.Prashant have suggested me to try medicine and the medicine worked Soo well and I got relief within 1 day.Thanks for him for the wonderful treatment.
I went to Dr. Prashant Hegde for an opinion regarding some tests (suggested by another doctor) that I'd done after an episode of gastritis. He came across as a calm and down-to-earth person, and explained to me that the test results were normal and that there wasn't anything to worry about. He suggested diet/lifestyle changes and prescribed a few medicines. Most importantly, he listened to me patiently and addressed all the concerns that I shared with him. ** ****** ******* *** * **** ****** ****** ** *********, I would highly recommend him.
