Initially, when I visited for the first time, the problem was immediately diagnosed and the decision to go for gastroscopy was taken the next day. According to the gastroscopy report, medicines for one month were given and now I am feeling better than before. The doctor is down to the earth person, speaks very politely. Thank you, sir !!!
