What Patient's Says About Doctor
A Wonderful Doctor – Dr. Pravin Govardhane
To earn the title “Doctor”, is an honor it is true. The fruition of a life long dream achieved by just a few. It’s a journey that has brought you, to this time and to this place. Where you can make a difference with each change that you face. But the wisdom you acquired each step along the way. It is not that defines you as you travel through each day. For knowledge in and of itself is only just a part… The thing that makes you special, is your kind and gentle heart. And when a Doctor cares as much as you “sincerely ” do, the word becomes a better place. No doubt because of you!!
With Best Wishes
