Hi all, I was facing negative intrusive thoughts as a recurring pattern during the current lockdown and was quite distressed for the same, I thought it would go away on its own till the time it became quite disturbing, so I decided to seek help from a professional. There is a social stigma attached to mental health. I am thankful to the counsellor for being such a patient and a fantastic listener, and understanding the exact reasons and providing the right solutions. They know their subject really well, which in turn helped me to understand my mind. Thanks again and I wish the very best to SMC in healing people.
Awesome experience. Thorough professional, qualified and experienced physiotherapist. Gives personal attention to all the patients. Analyses the root cause of the problem and cure it with utmost efficiency. He is well equipped with all the modern equipment. Would suggest people to visit in case they want to advise a physiotherapist. Charges are also reasonable compared to treatment I got from other Clinics. Nice experience. Value for money.
