Dr Vikas Mittal looks young but has about 15 years’ experience in field of Pulmonary Medicine. His strengths include being meticulous, diligent, and academic. He is very dynamic but at the same time humble and down to earth, so easily approachable. He has good clinical expertise in dealing with all kinds of pulmonary diseases and is well versed with all major diagnostic and therapeutic pulmonary procedures, having done about more than 1000 bronchoscopy/interventional pulmonary procedures. He is also involved in research work related to pulmonary diseases. He is a strong believer that practise of medicine is “an art as well as a science” and so always honestly practices evidence-based medicine but with a practical and human touch [sevabhav] with utmost human ethics.
Another unique part of his practice is that he believes in working as a team with a group of doctors [equally trained as him and personally mentored by him]. The team of doctors around Delhi/NCR works as per a fixed protocol/guidelines, so that each patient is taken care by his team doctor in a similar manner as he himself would have taken care of them. This ensures that all patients are always given GOOD QUANTITY OF TIME (patient hearing) and a QUALITY TIME without overstretching any individual doctor and without patient moving from one corner of city to another.
He has a unique blend of professional experiences, having worked as a senior registrar at both governments set up at LRS institute of TB and chest diseases, Delhi and at private sector at Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute, Delhi. He also has a research aptitude, having worked as a research associate at VP Chest Institute for 1 year before joining Max Healthcare Ltd where he is working with 7th year in running.
He is currently a Consultant in Department of Respiratory Medicine at Max Super Specialty Hospital, Saket, Panchsheel Park and Shalimar Bagh, having independent charge of OPD and inpatients since Oct. 2012.
