Dr Amita was by default paediatrician of our daughter when she was born at Surya, since we have been extremely comfortable with her. As first time parents there are not many things you may know, she would tell you each and every aspect about child's health and update you with Do's and Dont's. She would always keep us updated about the next progress signs and when to do what. We have been happy until now and there are no complains. Coming from a family of doctors I can surely vouch for her *** *** **** *** ** *** ** *** ****** ********** *** *** ******

Dr Amita Ma'am is an experienced pediatrician, quickly understands the problem and prescribes only the required medicine and explains the problem cause details in easy terms as a part of the treatment process. As a parent, I'm completely satisfied with the results in all the visits during last 3 years for my kids. Even during the recent pandemic situation as well, she was available for the treatment. Thank you Ma'am, once again.Regards,Krishna
Dr Amita is a thorough professional *** * **** ************* doctor. She is very well aware of the latest treatment options across the globe and her diagnosis is very accurate. She doesn't prescribe antibiotics unnecessarily and goes out of the way to treat the child. She has even seen my child in the middle of the night and also came in on a Sunday just for us. She is really passionate about the child's welfare and I trust my children with her 100%.
