I had the worst experience of my life here.. the people are rude.. the place is dirty.. the plaster of walls is coming off and it is dingy and stinky..... I had to come back without getting any service done!
I had some skin problems since quite some years, and therefore decided to visit Dr. Meghna's ayurvedic centre. She prescribed few medicines and a treatment package. I would recommend her, since she is very knowledgeable. Her treatment has cured me of my health problems.
