Not at all satisfied with my experience. The doctor just suggested me an endoscopy and that is it. No explanation of underlying causes or what aggravated my situation. He hardly talked to me for 10 mins and that too all the questions were mine that he was answering. There wasn't any information on my problem from his side except that I should go for an endoscopy! Extremely unpleasant experience.
I would like to give my feedback through the below points: -
1.) Dr. Vijay is very friendly and down to earth person which makes him a unique person and different from 99.99 % of the doctors.
2.) He listened to my problems with utmost patience and was never irritated.
3.) The suggestions he provides is just like a friend would provide in a difficult situation.
4.) He not only heals the body but also his behavior soothes the soul of the patient.
5.) Last but not the least the clinic staffs are also nice persons and very helpful by nature.
**** ******* first time I visit.I will visit after three weeks. let us see what will happen in three weeks. I will visit to doctor after three weeks then I will comments on this.
The doctor was very friendly.
He have good behaviour and soft skill.
Doctor understand me very well.
The doctor is so friendly. He heard our problems patiently. My wife have been suffering from unexplained abdominal pain for
few months , we onsulted two doctors before but no improvement. Finally I came to know about Dr. Vijay Kumar Rai and his clinic and day care center Americana. Hearing our problem doctor immediately done endoscopy himself and
prescribed medication. I was in search for such a friendly and professional doctor and such an integrated onsultation and diagnosis facility under one roof. Very Satisfied. Helping staffs are aslo friendly.
