Very helpful and good knot about diabetes and thyroid helped get my sugar levels under control in a very short time
I have been consulting many diabetologists since 15 years but never could some one identify the problem for my Uncontrolled sugars.Dr Rakesh patiently took details of my routine and diet ..He prescribed me medication with which my sugars came into control. I am satisfied by his approach which is patient friendly.Thanks Dr Rakesh
Visited Dr. Rakesh Boppana's clinic for pain in chest due to gastric problem and borderline thyroid issue. I had been suffering since 9 months and fed up with visiting different hospitals including AIG hospital as well. Went through endoscopy and all the tests. But proper route cause was not identified. Some said it is anxiety disorder, general gastric problem. But its not.
Very Satisfactory. Doctor explained the issue very well and was very well mannered. Must visit, we visited at his clinic Dr Rakesh Boppanna's Manikonda Clinic, super clean and good service.
