Gurugram (Haryana) [India], Feb 14 (ANI/PRNewswire): Leading multispecialty hospital, Paras Hospital Gurugram has increased the service of doctors and non-clinical staffs in order to cater to the growing demand of patients’ footfall in evening out patients departments (OPDs), which has been witnessing 300 OPD consultations every evening.
The hospital, known for their commitment of providing the highest standard of medical care possible to all patients, has been tackling medical emergencies round the clock.

All common blood tests such as sugar, liver function tests, kidney function tests are being carried out in the evening besides chest and abdomen X-rays and ultrasounds.
“The management has taken a step towards providing facility to the community at their convenient time so that people should not miss out on work and health both. We have doctors from medicine, surgery, paediatrics, gynecology and obstetrics, ENT and eye department in the evening everyday,” said Dr Sameer Kulkarni, Facility Director, Paras Hospital Gurugram.
