Sohna Road Survival Guide

Primary tabs

This list is a laundry list of the different service providers I've used and pretty much the decent guys who can be used for local residents.

Contents:

Plumber
Vijay - does his job well and is demand on the weekend - so book by Thursday max. Works cleanly. used him twice for odd jobs: +91-9910421169

Dr Sehrawat
Dr Sehrawat, is a surgeon with Artemis Hospital, and has an array of impressive degrees. He charges a reasonable sum (consultation Rs 200 as of Jan '11) and took Rs 300 in scraping the dead skin off my foot corn. This was rather cheap and supremely well done - worth the Rs 1000 I'd paid for consultation + scraping for the podiatrist Dr Govind Bisht at Max, Gurgaon. Not to mention, that he did it patiently - no hurries whatsoever. Highly recommended. Based in F-303, Parkview City-II

Dr Arvind
Dr Arvind Kuma r, is a gastro-intestinal consultant with Artemis Hospital, and is DM (Gastro). He treated my colitis recently and I got immediate relief. He also correctly identified that the colitis (even though subsiding) had ticked off my ruptured disc, thus leading to severe back pain. It was actually a radicular pain that he correctly diagnosed. Not to mention, that he did it patiently - no hurries whatsoever. He's reachable at 98183 32162. Highly recommended. Reachable at NCR Gastro/Liver Clinic, Sect 15-I. Go along the sect 15 road from exit 9 for about 200m. There's a gate with his board (after the juice shop) just before all the chemist shops.

Dr Marwah
Dr Marwah is a senior orthopaedic doctor with Apollo, Privat, Artemis etc. He belongs to the old hands-on school and is highly systematic - the only doctor I've seen ever, who hands out a complete sheet to you with all details incl educational info, contact, exercises, dos/donts. Kinda like a senior professor! Very highly recommended - he took time out to call X-Ray labs on the specific angle reqd & quick processing etc. He s been extremely supportive, available over the phone, has helped link me to other specialists as the need arose. He is a treasure trove of information - ask any question and he ll patiently answer WITH a medical journal excerpt (he s got a great memory!). Very highly recommended!
- 9810153207 F-1/9 DLF Ph-I. Directions: Arjun marg entry - take immediate right and then 1st left.

Dr Gera
Dr Tarun Gera (9811252993) sits in Vatika City Market most weekday mornings. Endodontist by training. Have used him for multiple root canals, tooth removal and fillings - cannot recommend him enough. Humble, competent chap - open to ideas, none of the regular "i have been operating on teeth since before you were born so do as I say" stuff, nor slimy overselling person either. His main clinic in the evening is 32 Pearls, in Supermart-I (next to the chinese food shops in the center area). In fact, it is opposite the CCD that is there.

Dr Geetanjali - General Physician
Dr Geetanjali (98189 21950) operates out of her home at S-359 (I floor), Uppal's Southend. Located opp Petals' villas' gate/next to the Uppal's gate. Charges extremely nominal (Rs 150 for consultation + voveran). During my slip disc episode, she sorted out the antacids (agreed later by the ortho) & administered a SOS voveran injection. Good person to interact with.

Woodwork: The Modular Kitchen Store (Siddhant Jethani)
Located bang at the main road almost opposite EasyDay Market. Highly recommended because:
a. No nonsense guy - genuine rates, clean calculations, no random
haggling. Available 6/7 days across the road!
b. Peace of mind - he can communicate via email, understand our
working person's requirements and is detail oriented. He patiently
went through my calculations of dimensions of books, standard pile of
clothes, ergonomics, personal preferences (vanity mirror)
c. He does not bother you with minor issues & Broadly Delivers on time
d. He himself can design in a proprietary software and generate views
for you. it is incredibly good to talk to someone who understands
nuances and patiently can design/reiterate as required.
e. His ground level boys are mostly smart and work quite nicely. They
aren't that messy either. They can broadly understand our requirements.
f. He can handle almost all other tasks you need to get done - we got
our flat white washed in 4 days + chimney fixed at a very competitive rate through him
just before we moved in.
Reachable at or 98112 00234.

Iron mongery : Azad
Azad welding works (Islampur) are quite decent. I used their services for putting painted angle iron (total about 500-600 odd incl welding at site) for drying clothes in our balcony. 98713106959, 9911510695

Car Service : Apra
Apra Auto is NCR's premier dealership. Their body shop does >1000 cars/month. That speaks volumes about their popularity. On a weekend, expect about 150+ cars to be given for service. I have been interacting with Mr Sunil Chauhan, since he was DGM Service - now he's GM Body Shop. Having his roots in the AirForce transport means, he is able to diagnose the problem in like 2 seconds, and he always has his practical insights. Having a 2 min chat before service means one is assured that the car is in safe hands & only the right thing is done.

Mohit Glass/Aluminium
This small shop located in Islampur (100m from Subhash Chowk) is quite decent for most of your glass needs. Gotten a painting framed and couple of mirror fitted by them. Good price and recommended overall. There are a couple of higher end showrooms near it (Shyam and Bombay respectively).

Electricals
- Hans Electricals - Awesome people. Based out of Vyapar kendra but service all over Gurgaon. Their technician is VERY good and customer oriented - even setup chandeliers for us. Cannot recommend enough, but you'd need a big load of work to call them over. 98994 70052
- Anju Electricals - Based at the Badshahpur-Vatika City T point, Raj Kumar is cheap (but nowhere as clean working) for minor tasks around the place. 92132 03831
- Govinda Electricals - The first major electricals shop while going towards Badshahpur. They have a decent variety (but phone may/may not be picked). 98107 35272
- South City Electricals - Located in C block south city-II. Nearest to our flats - bought minor odd/ends from them 98189 65302.

Student Stationery Shop
Located in C block south city-II. Nearest to our flats - well stocked, even for magazines. Other magazines are available on order. Extremely amiable. Mr Ravi 92507 03914

Chemist: A1 Drug Store
Other nearby ones are nice too (Healthy world/Southend floors/99112 08844, 98.4 degrees/C block SouthCity-II/0124-4086365) BUT A1 typically has an excellent range of medicines (never found them wanting across all sorts of ailments!) & do not hesitate to recommend cheaper/generic alternatives so you wish. Decent chaps and do home deliveries too. Very highly recommended. 0124-4252725

CAs - all as advised, but none tried 100% - I finally efiled myself this year
- Mr. Kamal Pandey CA, Mob: + 91 98-73-553713, located in Rajiv Chowk
- Sunita Maheshwari, CA, Mob: 98100 41794, located in Omaxe Mall
- Pradeep Mishra, available at (loc. not known)
- Vishal, based in Delhi but used to consulting over the phone - 9268467288, 9212329475, sabindia33@yahoo.com. Pleasant chap to deal with and understood my requests clearly.
