Since last few years I have been looking for a good neurologist in Jaipur who can understand my medical issue. My search ended after I met Dr. Neetu Ramrakhiani. She addresses every issue of the patient and explain it in detail. She is extremely warm while interacting with her patients. Most importantly she is **** ************* *** well aware of her subjects. I have consulted many neurologists in Jaipur and undoubtedly I would recommend her the most.
Very experienced *** ************* ******* Listens with patience and explains well. Has always given satisfactory treatment and has been well approachable.
It was great meeting Mrs Neetu. She is friendly and at the same time doesn't scare for anything.. She gives her full time to a patient to understand his problem
The doctor was really friendly and professional I felt very comfortable discussing my issue with her and she listened very attentively, there's no doubt she is 1 of the best in her field and at what she does yet there was no aura of supposed greatness which was really refreshing to see . There's was this other lady patient who told me she cured her paralysis completely and was all praises of her and how nice she was, which became apparently clear when I met her . I would like to recommend any one who is reading it to go ahead and consult her we need more doctors like her. Thank you
