I was in Nashik for visiting my family when my 16 month old fell and hurt his upper lip. We had a return flight to US in the next 24 hours. We visited Dr Kiran on the recommendation of our pediatrician. We found him extremely friendly and a thorough professional with a humane approach. Post surgery, he set us up for the travel with SOS medicines and information as to what to expect. He was available on phone for the next few days to answer any questions, and was also kind enough to call and inquire about the progress.
Doctor is very caring in nature and whole staff of hospital is very encouraging n supportive.
We visited Dr. Kiran for his opinion. Dr. Kiran was very professional and courteous. He answered all our queries and considered our preferences.
