Users feedback about their online consultation experience

Mr. Ravi Singh

I am a 34 year old divorcee. I was diagnosed with depression, a few years ago, but I had to change my therapist also because of various reasons. During the lockdown, my mood swings became problematic and somedays I rarely felt like getting out of the bed. Then I decided to reach out again and seek help from a psychiatrist, through Bajaj Finserv Health. I started taking my medicines regularly and with exercise and lifestyle changes, am much much better than before. It is almost like living a different life. Thank you Bajaj Finserv Health!
