I consulted Dr Ratnadeep Patil when I was suffering from a condition (constant bilateral eye pain)related to TemporoMandicular joint ) which couldn't get identified and treated by other doctors. I had made visits to multiple specialists across the country. I was severely depressed at that time. I must confess that it was the first time I got hope that I could live a normal and healthier life. Dr Ratnadeep Patil is a highly knowledgeable and confident doctor who also posses the key qualities of a doctor i.e. patience, understanding patient's problem, providing comfort to the patient and giving ample time to him/her. For the treatment of this condition, I had made multiple visits to the doctor and found him to be same as he was during the first visit. Slowly, my condition started improving and now I can say that I do not have any eye pain from past 6 months. My life has changed now. I would also like to acknowledge that not only Dr Patil but all staff members of his clinic are highly experienced and more importantly, are good human beings.
