After having a bad experience with another gastroenterologist, we asked for a recommendation from one of our trusted doctors. He suggested going to Dr.Kanakia at Lilavati Hospital.
I have been his patient from the last 2 years. The doctor is a gem. Extremely jovial, listens to your issues patiently and explains the problem in simple laymans language. The best part is that half of your worries and ailments disappear with his assurance and doesnt prescribe unnecessary medicines.
THE DOCTOR IS A GEM OF A PERSON. HE EXAMINED ME, SAW MY REPORTS AND EXPLAINED TO ME THE TREATMENT AND CURE TO MY AILMENT. ALWAYS WAS SMILING. IN FACT I WAS HALF CURED ONLY BY LISTENING TO HIS KIND AND ENCOURAGING WORDS. HE WAS NOT IN A HURRY LIKE OTHER DOCTORS SO THAT THE NEXT PATIENT COULD BE DEALT WITH. I AM REALLY THANKFUL TO HIM FOR HIS KIND WORDS.
He is a thorough professional, gives ample time to each patient and does thorough examination...gives a printed copy of prescription and he does not recommend any lab for the tests he suggests. Such an honest and no nonsense man, he is a very friendly doctor I would surely recommend anyone who has gastro problems to consult him. Best thing every thing is digital, even his prescription No doctor's handwriting issues. He also asks for digital copies of reports on mail So no old world style of dealing with a doctor.
