She did her internship from the renowned Fortis Hospital in 2005 and Masters in Physiotherapy, Neurology in the year 2012. A silver medal holder, Dr Renu Sharma, is a budding private practitioner physiotherapist, based out of Bangalore.
She started her practice in 2013 with a well-known hospital in Hyderabad. She worked there for 2 years, before choosing to move out and start a private practice. She started her private consultations in Hyderabad in 2015, continued in Goa and now practices in Bangalore.
Ask her the reason for choosing private practice over hospital job and she says “working on a consultation basis gives me the flexibility to define my timings as per my and my customer’s conveniences. I will not be restricted based on hospital hours.”
Currently her customers reach out to her either through PRACTO or through word of mouth.
She provides in-person, on-call or online consultation based on customer’s convenience.
She derives satisfaction at work by watching her customers heal and feel better.
Her confidence comes from the fact that her customers come back to her for repeat consultations and also refer to their family and friends.
When asked why her, she smiles and shares, “I love spending time with my patients. I share many tips and show them exercises by demonstrating myself. I do a lot of follow-ups, and don’t give up on my patients till I am satisfied with their improvement.”
Her strength, she says is her ability to correctly diagnose and follow the right protocols. To state an example, for a backache she first finds out if the root-cause is weak muscles, injury or ergonomics. Based on the cause, she provides tailor-made treatment for strengthening or posture-correction.
Right now she operates from home where she has a dedicated space with the right equipment to cater to her patients. For Renu, the journey has just begun. Like every journey, she too has faced initial challenges. Maternal responsibilities and relocations did get her a few miles back in her journey but she is persistent in chasing her dreams. The dream to open her own clinic.
Now that Renu plans to settle down in Bangalore for long and good, she has already started working towards her goal. She is thriving hard to tie-up with neurologists and orthopedic consultants in her close medical network and local clinics to build a slow but steady customer base.
She plans to build visibility to her consultation practice by writing BLOGs, contribute short videos online, conduct workshops and provide small talks in apartment communities and other organizations that will benefit from it.
Her intentions are firm and the road is rough. But she is determined because she knows she is good in her work.
