First I went to my family doctor but he was clueless about my medical condition of dust allergy & continuous coughing. Then I happened to book appointment with Vijay sir on Practo. Vijay Sir is very very experienced doctor in his field. Sir thoroughly checked me with allergy test & gave detailed diagnosed report. I started with his medication & now feeling so much better. I would recommend anybody with allergy,TB, asthma to him. ** ** ****** *** ** *** my condition has improved drastically as I was suffering for quite a long time. Vijay Sir is very polite and a good listener too. Please do visit him without a second though. Signing off !

The Doctor is humble and no doubtly very experienced. I would like to describe him as a doctor donning grey flannel suit. I visited him at Lakhotia and he askes me to get costly tests done only at his clinic located in Saltlake. He told me that he wants me to do the tests but did not even write the names of the test on the prescription , so that I cannot get it done elsewhere (only mentioned the price and address of his clinic in the prescription.)
Very hopeless experience.I went to him for second opinion. He told me that i have been given léss dose of medicine by my earlier doctor so he prescribed me the same medicine with other name and less power and asked me to take 4 tab at a time which i was taking only one earlier. He charged me Rs 600 and didnot even checked me properly not even touched me.i was told to do an x ray and a blood test, when i went to him with reports he only saw the x ray and didnot asked me about blood report though he has the prescription in his hand. i reminded him about the blood report then he saw it and prescribed me the same medicine with low power which my earlier doctor has prescribed . Not only this on prescription he wrote some other patients name in place of mine. Not expected from such an experienced doctor. It indicates his seriousness to his patients . To visit him is waste of time and money.
