I was suffering from varicose veins since last 10 years and I was working in east Africa. I visited India for treatment of varicose veins. I visited Dr Rohit in Medanta Lucknow. He explained me about the disease and treatment... And I was admitted for the treatment and he did rf ablation and discharged me after the procedure... I was very much relieved of my symptoms and the cost of treatment was also affordable.
Extremely talented in his field, dedicated, soft spoken and arguably one-of-the-best in his expertize i.e. EVS/IR.
We went for varicose veins surgery in the legs, my wife was suffering since ages. Don’t even remember, how many super-specialists(?) she has visited in all these years. It all went well under his expert supervision.
Equally good, caring and supportive was staff of Chandan Hospital. 7 stars (if allowed).
BOTH (Doc + Hosp) Highly recommended. God bless all.
