About Dr. Ravikiran Barigala

Along with treating ill patients, infectious disease physicians like Dr Barigala offer comprehensive care to prevent illness and administer vaccines needed before visits to certain countries for further treatment, including rare diseases like meningococcal infections, Japanese encephalitis causing neurologic symptoms and yellow fever.

Infectious disease specialists like Dr Ravikiran offer out-patient and hospital-based care services.

With over 15 years of experience in the field, Dr R Barigala says, "Infectious disease specialists are like detectives in charge of solving a complicated case. We rely on our diagnostic skills to find the answers, but many clues come directly from patients' recollections of their symptoms and clinical history. This is when careful listening and an empathetic bedside manner play a huge role." With his astute diagnostic skills and knowledge, it is no surprise that Dr Ravikiran Barigala is considered one of the best infection specialists in Hyderabad.
