I have had this back pain and shoulder pain from a very long time (I think it might be because of the accident i had back in 2009). My back pain initially started in the right side of my neck and with time gradually moved down to my back just below my shoulder blade. The pain is mostly in the right side. It was bearable earlier however since last year it intensified a lot so last week i finally decided to see a doctor.
I asked around a little bit and looked up in the internet. Found tons of Orthopaedist on Practo. I wanted a good doctor so i had to look at number of votes and feedback received by the listed doctors. And finally zeroed in on Dr Darshan.
Two main reasons I choose Dr. Darshan:
All the feedback on Practo are positives. Key highlights are that he is very patient, listen to patients with great attention and very supportive too.
Another thing that stands out is the fact that he also responds to reviews, which essentially means he cares for what patients feels about him and his general treatment and his approach in handling patients. Ask yourself how many doctors does that, really!?
So I finally booked my appointment, met him last week and lo! All that was said about him is absolutely true! One of the nicest doctors I have ever interacted with!
He examined my pain area, move, stretch, rotates, pull, tab etc etc very thoroughly and gave me the prescription (some medicines and an x-ray). I am on medication currently and the pain has subsided a lot!
Will get X-ray done today and have my next meeting with him tomorrow with the X-ray result.
And do you know one of the best things about Dr. Darshan?
Just before I left his clinic he underlined one of the cell phone numbers in the prescription letter and said "This is my phone number. Call me if you have any problem".
I left the clinic thinking... "How many doctors does that?"
My husband's left arm was fractured for which dr Darshan Sonawane was recommend to us. Dr. Sonawane suggested strapping instead of operation after examination of CT and MRI and other reports. He explained about the whole process to me my husband and the relatives before strapping and how to take care of it post strapping. He made the patient and us comfortable throughout the process. He treated him very patiently gave us the best advice and calmly explained every thing. He has a good experience which you can see with the way he takes up the treatment. We were asked for follow up at regular intervals after the discharge in which he made a point to show me and my husband every time the xray was taken how much the bone has healed and how to take care of his arm. We are completely satisfied with the result of the treatment given by him. At the end of 6 weeks i see a good improvement in my husband's left arm. Dr. has lots of patience to listen and understand the patients needs and problems.
Everything thing was fine with the doctor the advise was also great only thing is the general outpatients were charged 500 there and going through practo i had to pay 650 . That actually dint felt right.
My wife’s left hand wrist fracture operation was performed by Dr.Darshan Sonawane on 28-October-2015 at Shashwat Hospital, Aundh. He carried out 3K wire surgery on the wrist. He explained about the operation to my wife, to me and the relatives before the operation. She was admitted in the hospital at 8a.m. and discharged at 4p.m. after the surgery. He made the patient and relatives accompanying her comfortable throughout the treatment. He treated her very patiently with the best advice. Follow up after the surgery was at regular intervals which is really a commendable job. We are satisfied with the result of the surgery.
He has enormous patience to listen and understand the difficulties and the sufferings experienced by the patient throughout the treatment. He advised us whenever we telephoned him. What I admire in Dr.Sonawane’s treatment is his soft skills, systematic methodologies and adaptation of well planned follow up schedules.
Dr.Sonawane suggested her to undertake physiotherapy for the left hand, wrist and fingers after removing the wires.. Physiotherapy treatment is being carried out.
It’s been pleasure for writing a review about Dr. Darshan Sir. Last month I have visited to Dr. Darshan Sir regarding issue on my knee injury. Instead of asking for MRI (suggested by other Doctors) he has suggested me for wait for 1 month so that during 1 months body will get heal naturally. I am very much impressed with his this suggestion. After 1 month my knee has improved a lot. He really think about patients time & money. He is also quite humble, polite and friendly with all the patients. There is a lot of thing I would like to mention but we don’t have enough space. I am glad to meet such a nice Doctor.
I went for a foot injury, my right leg foot twisted on one side and had severe pain. I was quite impressed with the doctor overall examination. He inspect my foot throughly and gave details explanation regarding the problem. I would like to highlight doctor’s key points for the benefit of the patients:
1.) He listen to the problem very carefully
2.) He is quite generous and patient
3.) Value for money
4.) Not prescribe/suggest any unnecessary treatment just for the sake of business

I highly recommend this doctor for any kind of Orthopedic issues.
Doctor reschedule from 6pm to 8pm as he had to go into surgery. Later I got a call saying to come between 7 45 pm to 8pm from the clinic. I was told the doctor would reach in 15 mins when I reached the client at 8. 15 mins later I was told the doctor would be 30 mins late. I waited. And then I was told he would be further late. It was 8 45 pm by that time. I could neither see this doctor nor get an appointment for anyone else , had to go back home in pain.
While I understand the emergency of a surgery, I feel it could have been better communicated so that I could atleast make other arrangements.
Darshan provided great inputs regarding my mother's health issue of Osteo Arithritis. Doctor is down to earth, very polite, humble also provided us with proper advice on Osteo Arithritis. Provided inputs in terms of exercises, general lifestyle changes which get ignored sometimes due to busy life. Also provided with options like surgery and details about it and scenarios where it might be required. Ample amount of time was provided for discussion to clear all doubts.
Very good experience. Would definitely recommend to visit.
I was immediately called as I have taken appointment before going for treatment and Dr.gave me sufficient time to talk and explain about my problems completely.
Dr Darshan is very through in making diagnose and it is done step by step.First with some simple medicines and then in the second appointment xray and some more medicines also he has made me aware of doing some home remedies which are easilyavailable realy helpful.
Thank you Dr. Darshan for your attention and to give a smile when i was in intense pain for around 6months. I strongly recommend Dr. Darshan.
