I am Pankaj, recently i have sent my parents for routine check-up to VS ADVANCE SURGERY HOSPITAL KILPAUK . I was worrying how will they be able to manage without me. However, when they went to the hospital the staff there guided my parents from the start till the end of the treatment and they were very polite and helpful in all aspects and my parents felt happy and great by the generosity and care shown by the doctors and their staffs. The experience was really great would recommend them.
