When it comes to our child's health we can only think about Dr. Pranjali. I have been visiting her since last 1.5 yrs and her medications and tips have always helped my little one to cure fast. She is friendly and has the patience to listen to all the problems my child is facing.
Visited for vaccination of my 6 weeks infant. But had many query's related to baby b4 visiting dr. She cleared all and provided drops which suits him very well. I can see my baby smiling now. Thank you Dr.
My son was having high fever. We were given instructions on how to take care of our son during high fever and in situations when fever doesn't comes down. The instructions were very useful and we were able to get the fever down effectively.
Doctor is not taking care of appointment through App. It is only first come first serve. There is no meaning for taking appointment. There is no seating arrangement in her clinic. Parents are roaming with small kid outside. I will not recommend her and highly disappointed
