Testimonials from Patients:
People Tree Hospitals has a wonderful team of dedicated doctors. My experience has been wonderful with Dr Supraja Chandrasekhar of Pediatrics Dept. She is not just a very experienced and expert doctor, she is a wonderful human being. My child care would not be complete if it's not with her support and guidance. You can count on her with your eyes closed. I am grateful for all the expert advice, the patient hearings and empathy that she has provided to me on all occasions!- Arunima Sen
