Most recent review

  • On the final day of our son's holiday in Canada he collapsed. The day he returned we took him to his GP. Not satisfied with the GP's response we took him to Dr Sridharan. We discovered that his D-Dimer levels were 10 times higher than normal. Without Dr Sridharan he might not be here today.

      A really nice doctor. Great with our baby and managed to stop him crying during scan. Clear explanation. Made us all feel better.
