My mother complained of pain and water coming out of her right ear. I booked the appointment through Practo with Dr. Sarika after seeing very good ratings and reviews.Visiting the doctor for the first time, we became a little sceptical as we had to wait for around 40minutes before we could see the doctor. However we later realized that this is because she listens and gives each patient enough time. Highy recommended.
It was good experience for me the doctor was good understanding my condition and treating my condition
Nice and friendly.
Very good experience. Root cause was explained and treated very patiently. In next 45 mins only I was arlt relief. Thanks to doctor.
