Visited for acid reflux problem which was nagging me for month. With suggested dietary advice and medication, had immediate relief. Doctor was quite friendly
I was suffering from GERD and upper stock discomfort for nearly 7 months. I consulted a very prominent doctor (Gastroentrologist) in Mulund. However, except tests and several follow up visits , I did not get any relief even after spending lot of money. That is when I came across Dr.Wani. I had a doubt of getting an appointment since it was at the peak of Covid season. However when I dialed, it was Dr himself who took the phone and gave me an immediate appointment. I was given minimum medication, but he gave me a lot of advise on food and food habbits. I got a 75 % relief within one month. Doctor advised me another one month without medication, but with control on certain food and eating methods. Now I do not have any problem, but would like to go and meet him to express my sincere thanks and also to ask whether I should continue the food restrictions further.
