One of the best surgeon in Banglore for ENT. Her hands in surgery is really gifted by God.
Dr. Athira is amazing. I can not speak higher about Dr. Athira how well she looked after me through surgery and with post follow ups. She picked up my phone calls always answering every question, if I can say one important thing about her it is that she actually shared this journey with me, which isn’t really something I expected a doctor would do . Thank you Dr Athira, Hope to see you again one day in the future. Would highly recommend Dr Athira.
One of the best doctor and great human being.
Examined thoroughly and has good knowledge. Helped me identify factors that cause me problems. Was empathetic and reassuring. I would recommend.
Dr is intelligent at diagnosis & polite at behavior.
Have been consulting Dr.Aathira for the last 2 weeks for a severe ear infection. Extremely satisfied with her approach. I had suffered sudden nerve damage (around 30%) due to an inner ear infection. This was extremely shocking. Dr.Aathira was very comforting and she made sure I understand what had happened and how I will come out of this nerve damage soon. In a world where medicos want to rush from one patient to another and are mostly impatient to patients questions, Aathira was the exact opposite. She took time to explain the situation every time and why shes suggesting something. She patiently answered every whatsapp message I sent and the questions I had. Today I have fully recovered and also my nerve damage has been reversed. Thanks a ton for the great help ! I would highly recommend Dr.Aathira for any ENT issues!!

I m Dr Reddy Maxillofacial & Facial plastic surgeon had ear problem since 20 years. There is a small perforation in my Ear drum. That was happened during my ragging , college days. I have shown to Mahadevaiah earlier, he said no surgery required. Later I Consultated 4 ENT doctors , all are recommended surgery with out even doing proper examination of my ear. I was ready for surgery and want to get it done with good surgeon. It happened to visit Dr Athira Rama krishnan. She asked me for CT , did it. She said no surgery required and just make sure water should not get into ear.
I recommend Dr Athira because sheexamine you properly and help you with proper diagnosis and treatment.
Beware of doctors who just push you for surgery with out proper diagnosis.
