Hospital processes are decently efficient. not unnecessarily crowded. Support staffs are friendly and cooperative. I took my mother for some urology issue. though we had to wait for more than an hour, but understandable, Dr. Reddy is quite senior and he was busy in an operation. Dr. reddy is very nice, did not write unnecessary tests and quickly diagnosed the issue. we are starting prescribed medication, let's hope issues are resolved.
He is very experienced doctor and diagnosed the issue quickly. I went from Miyapur and I feel it was worth the travel time and effort. I would recommend AINU to set up something in Miyapur, Chanda Nagar area to benefit many unmet needs of patients like me.
I got fabulous experience in AINU as the doctors and staff are very nice.
very experienced and friendly doctor . evaluates the cases on facts and established diagnostic rules, doesn't jump the gun for surgery without a need and proper evaluation
