  • physiotherapy treatment for hypertension, Hypertension  If there was an option of negative stars then I would have choosen it. They offered me a package of₹ 5950/- for 10 days and after 2 days updated me on new package of ₹5700/- for 7 days without my consent. Even deposited my earlier cheque and then I had to follow up for the balance for about 10 days explaining my issue everyday to the new person on their helpline. They don't acknowledge emails too. Worst experience and definitely not recommended

  • physiotherapy treatment for hypertension, Hypertension  Most horrible services. Please do not ask for help from these people, they will talk sweet and then at the last moment there will be no shows from the caretaker. I had to go through this not once but twice the caretaker did not turn up. Request you all to not depend on these people as we are leaving our homes and letting them into our lives, the least they can do is inform and provide a replacement, but neither of it happened and they expect me to pay registration fees of RS,1000
