This dr. Is good experiance in my douter health it is really fredly convence to health problem my experiance is good
doctors experience and treatment on piles is good but it is costly than others.
I booked an appointment for my 61 year old father. we had reached to clinic at our appointment time but Dr. did not arrive. when enquired he cancelled the appointment. this is highly unprofessional moreover they did not have courtesy to call and inform us about the same. we went from Balewadi to Shivaji nagar. we're extremely upset.
Just attending the patient won't suffice the need. Atleast share do's and don'ts for a particular health problem, yourself, before the patient asks.
