Good experience... i have stomach aches and first doctor is asking about the problem and he is give proper treatment. He is suggest us to check blood and after that he will start treatment..this is the right way to treatment. So over all very good experience.
Dr. Is very particular about timing. He gave patience hearing to the problem of mine and prescribed medicines which were very effective in controlling problem. Though I opined for gastroscopy to my problem for perfect investigation, he continued with prescribing medicines for nearly one and half month. In short he avoided expensive treatment ie gastroscopy which was certainly unnecessary financial burden for me. Lot of thanks to the doctor for same.
I am very satisfied the way of treatment..... . expected little more explanation about my report. but doctor told all reports are good. so thank God. Thanks doctor...
I have been suffering from digestive disorders since a long time. Went to him with lot of hopes. Wanted to discuss in detail, in hope of getting positive solutions. Was deeply disappointed to say the least. Doctor didn't seem to care a lot. After 1:00 hour of wait time, a not very polite receptionist, and 600 rs consultation fee the doctor didn't seem to be interested in speaking for more than 5 minutes. Don't feel like my issue was heard very well and am neither confident about taking the medicines prescribed.
