I'd like to share my true experience here. First of all the reviews mentioned here are paid and then written down by the clinic members accounts of their family and all.Archit , the doctor here, is not rightly doing his job.A really worse doctor , been visiting here since 2 months, he isn't able to cure my fungals and i went for the hair removal too earlier. I am facing serious issues of alergic reactions.When i explained my problem he linked it to my genetic conditions and all for no reasons ( before visitng here i just had some fungal and all clear)a lot of problems are there but he is not accepting his mistake and thenThe medicines they provide are very costly and they have this chemist right next to their clinic ( attached) , expensive medicinesCharges is 500 and then follow ups of 400 which is not worth it here at all.Please delete this fake reviews
