It would be really unfair to judge anyone. Let me tell you my story and perception would be your’ s.

I was suffering from stomach issue gastric, weak gut and other stomach abnormal behavior. I knew the reason behind it, eating fancy junk foods and irregular timing and stress. I tried to manage by own applying good habits but couldn’t cop-up with it. Due to indigestion I uses to feel weak and hungry in morning but still I need to start my morning ,again in office work stress was making my situation worst and till night a bad health condition from next day onward same story. I tried everything mild exercises, home food, good habits but I couldn’t able to come out from that cycle. I rarely want to visit a doctor but this time I have to.
I went to Doctor Rahul, appointment I got very easily. After 20-25 min waiting my turn comes and I entered the chamber. He asked me what's the problem I said everything to him, no doubt he listen it very calmly and responded very politely and with great humble. He inspected me and suggested for 20 days medicine and told me to come back after 20 days, if symptom still reside then we will go for gastroscopy as it was more related to lower abdomen.
I took the medicine for 20 days I started feeling better as medicine was very generic to these symptoms(I am saying this because my brother is also a doctor so I take second opinion, My brother said it’s normal medicine take it as doctor suggested.)
I went there after 20 days and this time I feel some differences, highlighting my observation as below.
1. He was still polite and humble, asked me about my recovery I said 70% recovered. He inspected me again and suggested for endoscopy. I got surprised last time suggested for gastroscopy and this time endoscopy, how it would be possible. I told we will look for some more days and then go for it. He wrote me 6-7 types of tablet and asked to come back after 20 days and stated it will be recovered in next 2-3 seating.
2. Somehow I was not convinced as I could feel nothing major was there it was related to indigestion only but scale was very high. Point I was also thinking I have so much stomach discomfort and these much medicine, Should I take this for next 2-3 seating more. Is he trying all his medicines on me?
3. I decided to go to another doctor, he was having 30 years of experience (I will not take name here). He inspected me and told me nothing major and suggested me 2 Tablets daily in which 1 was multivitamin. In next 5-6 days I was almost feeling normal considering the fact I was taking all the care of my body like eating healthy food on regular interval, green tea, fruits and exercise.
4. Point I want highlighted here being polite and humble couldn’t to a criteria to choose your doctor.Now I am normal, if situation was not serious then why suggested for endoscopy/gastroscopy. Now a days endoscopy/gastroscopy become very normal but why it's needed if experience say things are not major.Not in doctor in every profession we applied our experience and judge the situation and using our experience we make the judgement.All depend upon how minutely you have grasp your experience.

Costly in all respect. Asks Same Rs. 500/- fee for each time. You have to buy medicines from his clinic only. One month medicines costs Rs. 5000/- plus his fee. for stomach pain, Which is not monthly Costly in all respect. Asks Same Rs. 500/- fee for each time. You have to buy medicines from his clinic only. One month medicines costs Rs. 5000/- plus his fee. for stomach pain, Which is not monthly income of some of the people. To get some waiver in fees (i.e Rs. 200) one has to visit the clinic twice in the month. Didn't get the logic behind it. Means one has to remain ill forever.

Seems too much money oriented.

My mother was suffering with an extremely weak gut. Family doctor suggested that we should immediately see a ‘Gastroenterologist’. Tried to reach various Doctor’s but none gave immediate appointments. My mother was suffering with an extremely weak gut. Family doctor suggested that we should immediately see a ‘Gastroenterologist’. Tried to reach various Doctor’s but none gave immediate appointments. By a close friend’s recommendation I called up Dr. Kothari’s clinic and immediately got an appointment at the Aundh clinic.

Upon meeting Dr. Rahul, I was floored by his friendly attitude and super politeness. While listening to Mom’s health complaints he tried to understand the cause and gave a course of medicines to be taken for 10 days and also asked her to get ‘Intravenous Therapy’ twice a day for 7 days. The results are amazing!!! Few more days for the course to complete but my Mom is already feeling better :-)

Highly recommend Dr. Rahul!!!
