Great experience, appreciate her approach and patience to understand the issue. Extremely happy with the visit.
My 10yr old daughter had a few rashes on her skin at her collar bone area. It was very worrying, but during the pandemic I didn’t want to visit any Doctor in person. I was referred to Dr. Anuja, she was very patient with my queries, asked detailed questions, asked for pictures, close up and from a distant and then recommended medication. She also followed up regularly enquiring about the spread. As diagnosed by her, my daughter’s rashes were no longer visible after a week’s medication. Am very happy with her in-depth knowledge and the care she showed towards my child.
My daighter had a persistent toe nail infection which would become so severe that she would be unable to attend school for days. On doctor's advice her nail was removed thrice with the help of anaesthesia. Dr. Anuja was the first to diagnose it as a fungal infection. After very simple medication she is completely cured now. Again she had an infection on her forehead, a black ugly spot which was spreading very fast. One look at it and Dr. Anuja prescribed a single ointment after which the spot faded and gradually disappeared.
Waste of money
