Patient Feedback: Praveen Kumar Samudrala
10th April 2017

I have been undergoing treatment under the said doctor for the past 3 years and I am quite happy for the treatment given by him. the way he interacts so patiently and diligently with all patients will definitely make them feel a soothing touch and improves their confidence. In fact, I am diabetic since 2001 and have consulted several doctors during this span, but I never have felt the amount of satisfaction and confidence (I gained after being a patient) elsewhere other than with this doctor. Thank you Citizens and thank you Dr Kalyan for your accurate treatment. Long live.
