I had digestion problem bloating, fullness and irregularities & inconsistency in bowel movement since last 5 months and was getting treatment from somewhere else since last 3 months, but was not getting better beyond one point, because of which I was limited to have only daily regular-meal, couldn't even eat any sweet or any fruits (except greenish banana & citrus fruit ).
Dr Mehul Choksi was very helpful and friendly. He patiently heard my problems and suggested good solutions in a professional manner for the same. He boosted my confidence and left a positive impact on me during my visit. Would definitely recommend him to others.
