"Physiofit I would say is the best Physiotherapy Centre in Hubli. They have very good facilities and treatments for orthopaedic pain management and neuro stroke rehab. Being a Gynaecologist myself (Dr. DS Patil) with 36 years practice in Hubli I was not aware about such a good Physiotherapy Clinic in Hubli till I searched on. Dr. Gauri is very knowledgeable, friendly and gave a lot of personal care and attention. My knee arthritis pain has reduced significantly and I have been suggested exercises to further manage. They also have a team of Physiotherapists under Physiofit who do home visits in Hubli and Dharwad. I highly recommend this clinic."
