Testimonial

Like many, I also had dandruff, but did not know how to cure it. Dandruff had become chronic on my scalp and the condition was unyielding to various treatments that I tried. Finally, with the treatment offered by Dr. Ritu Bharadwaj I can see a positive change in my condition. Thanks a lot doctor.
