I had been to hospital and it was for neck pain. ****** *** ***** I took physiotherapy in different hospital. No medicine was required. My neck was very stiff. I had pain behind my head. I had scanning done. I am satisfied with the treatment given. He told i need 10 sessions. Later physiotherapist told i need only 5 sessions. I could have directly visit physiotherapist, it could have solved my problem. Waiting time was for 45 minutes or one hour as other patients was there. I can rate the doctor 5 out of 5, 5 being highest. Doctor spoke with me nicely. Even took scan, he suggested to do physiotherapy. Even physiotherapist was good.
We had met the doctor and it was for health problem for my father in law. He had neurological issue. Doctor suggested well and diagnosed well. I am happy with treatment. Few tablets like multi vitamin tablets was prescribed by the doctor. Blood test and CT scan was done. I am satisfied with the treatment given. I can recommend doctor to my family or friends.

We had met the doctor as my father had spine related problem. ****** *** **** *** ***** Medicine was prescribed by the doctor. Scanning and blood tests was done. I am satisfied with the treatment given. I can recommend doctor to my family or friends. Waiting time was not much. My father is doing good. Doctor suggested physiotherapy for my father.
The consultation experience was good he definitely gave a good suggestion. He recommended me to do surgery but I couldn't do because of some personal problem. One of my friends suggested me to visit this doctor. Definitely I will recommend this doctor. He has good behaviour. The reasons for visiting this doctor was related to spine issue. He listened to our problems. But the environment in Sahyadri hospital was little bit congested. It should be little bit spacious because a lot of patients will be visiting there, this needs to improve. The staffs were helpful to us. The waiting time was reasonable in the hospital to consult.
