I was referred to this doc by a friend. I was suffering from mental anxiety about my recently uncovered health problem. I was very depressed and by the time I visited him, I had already spent a lot of money visiting several doctors and getting numerous tests done on my body each time I visited a doctor.
I'd definitely recommend Preethi Swaroop for any mental health issues. He is very friendly and took time to explain and help us understand the issues.
I was referred to this doctor by a friend. I needed a letter for immigration purpose. The doctor asked me to get some test done after which he would give me the letter as the test reports would be a evidence for my depression. After getting the test done when I went to the doctor for the letter, he drafted a letter for the immigration. Now to hand over the letter he asked me 25k & refused to give my original test reports.
It was my first visit to Dr Preethi Swaroop.
