About the Department

Children cannot say what is bothering them, nor can they answer questions asked by the doctor. They are impatient during examination and are usually not cooperative during the check-up. Hence they will need special care and attention by the treating doctors and not every other doctor. Kids who need medical attention need specialists who can make them relaxed and cooperative with them to make a right diagnosis at right time.
