During your first consultation with our doctors, an assessment will be done to diagnose what you are suffering from, the stage of your illness and the scope of homeopathy in treating it.
Our doctors will give you realistic feedback over the possible benefits you will get from homeopathy and the duration of your treatment. For any chronic complaint that you are suffering from for over a few years, the homeopathic treatment might take some time to provide permanent relief, but symptomatic relief can be experienced as early as four to six weeks.
