As a chief Neurosurgeon, Dr. Vhora begins the operation. He slices the skin on the skull to make a semi-circular flap that can be pushed aside. He drills holes along the top of the skull, then down toward the ear and back up along the temple. He cuts between the holes with a special burr, then pulls off a section of bone and sets it aside.After having carved open a window on the brain, he dons glasses with magnifying lenses set into them and a headset with fiber optic cables that release a dull blue glow. The cables conduct light from a box behind Dr. Vhora, then wrap over his hair and plug into a spotlight that shines out from his forehead.
Dr vhora is very kind and friendly. Such a famous doctor explained my son every point and gave his valuable time to us. He never made any hurry while we were in his consulting room and councilled my son without getting irritated. I shall never forget his kind approach towards patient.

Explanations about health needs to be improved. Doctor's friendliness is also required. Consultation should last at least 2 min.
Very pleasant to talk to.patiently listen to my ailment and his subordinates were very helpful and polite. I would recommend a token system for meeting the doctor.
