    Doctor Bakshi is a first class professional. He's a highly meticulous, thorough, patient and compassionate doctor. On my very first visit to his clinic, he was able to diagnose the ailment I have been suffering from since February 2017 and proffered a treatment plan which has been very successful till date. I am happy to recommend him for his excellent care.
