I was under Dr Shalabh Sharma’s care when I was first diagnosed with a serious condition. Anyone who has gone through the tunnel of a life-threatening illness knows how important it is to have doctors and diagnosticians you can trust implicitly. I have no hesitation in saying that Dr Sharma was (and still is) superb! I have a lot to thank him for
