Users feedback about their online consultation experience

Ms. Manavi Rai

I am 33 years old and am a school-teacher. Due to constant stress of workplace and family responsibilities, my hair started falling in huge quantities. Despite using all kinds of home remedies and oils, my hair remain thin and frail. I used Bajaj Finserv Health App and got in touch with a dermatologist. After her recommendations, medications and suggestions, my hair growth doubled. I no longer fear being bald. Thank you Bajaj Finserv Health!
