First line that comes to mind-
Dr.Niketa is the best Doctor I have ever seen.
She treats her patients very well & is always on point.
She explains all the facts about your skin clearly & is 100% percent sure with the exact treatment required.
Waited long to visit Dr.Niketa as she was out of country but was always in contact and I must admit IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT

REGARDING TREATMENT
I came here with face skin problems after facing them for 8yrs.
All it took was 4months for Dr.Niketa to treat my skin.
4sessions of Peeling & 4 sessions of Dermaroller ( with still 2 more pending) and my skin already looks way better than before.
Her treatment is painless and quick and results 100%
Don't wait for someone to refer you any Doctor. Just visit her once.

Those reading this review
I came to Dr.Niketa just by reading reviews on the net & with no reference but now after my treatment is almost over I must admit all those who have written positive reviews about her mean every word of it including MYSELF.

Thank you Dr.Niketa

In your words
Keep looking Beautiful
xoxo

I have been under Dr Niketa's care for many years now and she is my No.1 go to doctor! I ask her advice on all my medical problems because i have come to trust her judgement so much. She always listens I have been under Dr Niketa's care for many years now and she is my No.1 go to doctor! I ask her advice on all my medical problems because i have come to trust her judgement so much. She always listens with patience and concern. Her manner is gentle and caring. She gives me time and answers all my questions. So now i call her for all my medical problems.
I have taken Dr Niketa's skin treatments for anti aging. I have done a no of peels as well as botox. All sessions with her have been very satisfying. if i had some doubts, she would call me back for a follow up and solve it.
Overall, i am very happy with her mannerisms and would definitely recommend her.

Visited For Acne / Pimples Treatment
My first visit to Doctor Niketa was about 3 months prior to my wedding. I did a lot of research before getting to her clinic in order to make sure that nothing goes wrong before my big day.
My problem
My first visit to Doctor Niketa was about 3 months prior to my wedding. I did a lot of research before getting to her clinic in order to make sure that nothing goes wrong before my big day.
My problem was acne - not the very obvious big pimples but tiny tiny bumps running all throughout my face. And a few brown spots on one side of my cheek from old ones that I tweezed.
I had read so much about Doctor that the first appointment I was excited and nervous hence I made it on time. However I ended up waiting for a good 1 hour outside the clinic - which actually was not a problem at the time. This routine continued almost always though - every time I would wait for over an hour for my turn inspite of pre-booking appointments online or doctor recommending or rescheduling appointments for me. It was the same always. But dare you not be late because our Doctor sure don't like that!

Coming back to my first visit, I shared my problems and I did also confess that I do not drink a lot of water and am a junky eater (from what I know a dermat would ask you to stop that right away?)
But Doctor seemed calm and explained what my problem was without closely observing my skin. Therefore she recommended I do a treatment called Azelan Peel. But before we start that we need to prep my skin and so she gave me a bunch of products for my skin routine.

Well, I was a bride-to-be I was really excited about getting peeled all my pimples and spots away. She recommended I do six sittings of the peel starting the next week of my first appointment. With a guarantee of results & 100% visible difference from the second peel onwards. Why wouldn't I go for it? Only T&C was I pay for all the products and for all the six sittings of the peels in advance or else if I wish to pay per peel I'll have to pay extra. (You know the drill!) So I went for it.

Three peels down and no difference, in-fact my skin was getting worse. However this is not something the doctor noticed herself. I had to bring it out to her - she was all set for the fourth peel! After I told her I wasn't happy, she again calmly explained the alternative - which was comedon extraction and I agreed to it (that turned to be my 4th sitting btw) So basically she manually tweezed out every thing visible from my face. To admit - my skin did feel smoother after this treatment immediately. However now that time has passed I do observe multiple scarring wherever the doctor had tweezed/cut.

5th sitting and doctor decides to take the extreme peel treatment - so this is the highest grade (don't know the name) and for days your skin looks burnt but when it peels it looks like you've got baby skin. Again for 2 days after peel my skin was good but then it turns out I start getting the big red pimples (which I never had - at least not so much)

According to the doctor all the impurities were coming out, so whatever. Last sitting again we decide to do comedon because apparently my skin cannot take new age treatments and dude, we are a week prior to my wedding!

On my wedding day - I think I had the most number of red pimples on my face than any other day of my life. I cried and cried and cried because my face looked terrible. Sure the doctor was polite, sure the doctor was available on phone. But did the doctor know her job?
To my experience and readings about her - I have come to conclude her solution to all acne problem is azelan and a bunch of products from Bioderma and La Roche Posay.

I did talk to the doctor about refund but she sure knows the trick. Extremely disappointed with her treatment and products although she says it's top class I think she really need to look into one's skin in more detail to determine the problem rather than using the same treatment for everyone with acne.

If you're looking to get conned with a major hole in your pocket, and want a face full of acne before your big day - please visit doctor Niketa Sonavane.

Dr. Niketa Sonavane - Dermatologist
Dear Raveena, Thanks for calling me a mindless, heartless, money hoarding con artist! Thank you for choosing me over hundreds of dermatologists in Mumbai. That is indeed very flattering. But you for Dear Raveena, Thanks for calling me a mindless, heartless, money hoarding con artist! Thank you for choosing me over hundreds of dermatologists in Mumbai. That is indeed very flattering. But you forgot to mention that you had been to other dermatologists before visiting me, with no results! I'm sure they all frowned when you said "i love junk food". But sadly, neither did you stop eating junk nor did their treatments work. I'm sorry that your treatment results weren't as planned. But again this is science, and unfortunately every result and response is not in my hands. It has a lot to do with how your skin responds to the treatment. What I can do is try to make the right choice of products and treatments based on clinical facts, ask for feedback from patients regarding results and modify treatment plans if some treatment is not working. Azlan is one of the most result oriented treatment in my clinic, it's not the only treatment though. And hundreds of patients all over the world and in my clinic, absolutely love La Roche Posay and Bioderma products for their mild nature and effective results as opposed to the conventional harsh yet ineffective acne creams. My consultation table is 2 feet wide, so I'm practacally sitting in my patient's face for 30-40 minutes during consultation. Comedone extraction does not cause scarring, comedones do. Comedones cause 'ice pick' scars which resemble pin holes in the skin. The 'burnt looking' peel treatment is a medium depth peel. It is the holy grail of skin repair and rejuvenation. At the end of analyzing that you have recurrent comedonal acne with PCOS that no other doctor has been able to treat in the past, suggesting the most effective products and treatments, making modifications each time that you said there's no results, being with you through day and night on phone and whatsapp, worrying that your wedding is coming up, trying my best to try and make your stubborn skin respond... I don't know my job! I think I would have been better off in a job where I would be able to give a damn about things that are not in my control, rather than break my head and heart each time 1 out of 100 patients fails to respond to treatment. Its surprising how Rs 15000 - 20000 in medical treatment can burn a hole in the pocket but not half a crore spent a big fat Indian wedding! Thanks for burning a hole in my heart. Dr Niketa more..
