I had consulted Dr. Adil when my daughter, who is 4 years old suffered from a persistent fever. He never rushes you, as some other doctors tend to do. The same goes with clearing of your doubts. He will very patiently answer your fears or queries. I liked his approach in treating patients, which is to be safer than sorry.
