Dr.Prof P N Renjen

They have come to you with a lot of trust and you have to honour that trust. So listen patiently and tell them your diagnosis in the gentlest yet realistic way. Doctors should remember patients are not machines,” is the philosophy he lives by.
Unlike the current norm, when doctors consult by the minute, Dr Renjen likes to give time to his patients and listen attentively. “I am not into counting the number of patients. I focus on attending each patient with the love and respect he/she deserves”.
