My mother was diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis last year and had a relapse in the month of May. Since it was her first relapse, she was extremely worried. Dr Shimpi was patient in listening to the problem. He heard all our concerns and assured my mother that she will be okay. My mother is doing much better and medicines that the doctor recommended have really helped her with her symptoms. I highly highly recommend Dr Lalit Shimpi. Thanks a lot!
