Hello shivi1975,

In general, we focus on helping users with content on our website. In any case, I'm afraid I need more information. What is the purpose of this document? I don't understand what the last part (of next arrival Doctor's) is supposed to mean. Could you please explain the title in other words?

Best wishes,

hi
 

 
Hi , good morning every one I'm from Saudi Arabia 

Can we say these level of prices has been offered since april...I mean to say that some one has been offering these level of prices since. April

Hello elle12,

I think the most natural way to say this would be

'.... has offered these prices since April'
'.... has been available for (price) [if we are talking about goods in a shop] since April'
'.... has been available at (price) [if we are talking about stocks or shares] since April'

I hope that helps,

Best wishes,
