Dr Poonam Sidana is a wonderful neonatologist. She took care of my premature baby when she was admitted to the NICU. She kept us updated about my child’s health consistently and counselled me and my husband also. My baby’s health only improved because of her and I am very grateful to her for all the support she had given us during this critical time. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
