**** ************ *** helpful doctor.☺
First of all my thinking was that all the hair specialist only recommends for hair transplantation to earn a hell lot of money from patient however when I visited this clinic doctor shantanu checked my scalp properly and explained the problem very well.
i like the way docter explain the whole root of the problem and non complex treatment ,Affordable for any skin concerned persin, must visit once
To start with I reached 10 mins prior to the appointed time. Dr. Shantanu called me in just in time. He was very patient while I explained my reasons to see him. He elaborated on the problem I was facing and possible solutions for it. He helped me understand the trigger behind hair thinning and various stages of it. He also confirmed my lifestyle and dietary habits and what can be done to induce positive effects while treatment is on. I look forward to seeing him again after a month and will certainly write a complete review after completing my scheduled treatment.
