Speaking on the occasion, Dr.Nitin Jawahar, Hospital Manager, Columbia Clinic – Doddaballapur said, “Doddaballapur is located just about 25 kms from Nandi Hills, 26 km from Yelahanka and there is a dearth of medical facilities in these areas. Since these areas are prone to road traffic accidents, it’s extremely important to have a good medical facility that is well-equipped to handle both small and large medical emergencies. Also, both Doddaballapur and Yelahanka are sprawling with upcoming apartments and residential projects thus leading to the need of medical facilities in a driving distance,”
