This medical dispensary is a multi-specialty dispensary with ultra-modern facilities (X- Ray, Sonography, Dental etc.) The cutting-edge equipment in the pathological laboratory is highly effective in catering to the medical requirements of those in need. Apart from the facilities, the dispensary has eminent personalities from the medical fraternity of Gandhinagar attending to the basic medical requirements at very nominal cost.
