Your Visit

  • Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment time and see the Receptionist.
  • Please call and cancel your appointment beforehand if you are unable to attend because of any reason. This would enable us to utilise the time for another patient.
  • Dr Reddy endeavours to see all patients at the scheduled time. Occasionally delays may occur due to a patient requiring a longer duration of care or Dr Reddy delayed unexpectedly in the operation theatre. We do our best to keep you informed of such situations.
