    A very attentive and courteous doctor, communication has been really good and reassuring. Eventhough our child's medical issue appears different from the typical Uticaria and Angioedema presentation, and has been misdiagnosed numerous times even by the pediatrician, Dr Bakshi has guided us through the proper diagnostic and treatment processes and I am pleased to say that we have been able to see evidence that his diagnosis is spot on! Our son has been responding well to treatment
