For those who don’t like technology, a consultation can also be done over the telephone.
Please note that following your consultation if Dr Krishna feels that a face-to-face appointment is warranted, we will organise this at no extra cost.
Video consultations are easy to arrange and offer a convenient and cost-effective alternative to seeing a private doctor in a clinic. Appointments can be booked by telephone or email. Patient details and payment are taken at the time of booking, together with your contact information for making the telephone call or video call.
