Dear Ms. Tina Ambani
My name is Dr. Chandrashekhar Suvarna and I was recently diagnosed with early prostrate carcinoma. I was referred by Dr. Hemant Vadeyar, a surgeon who works at your esteemed hospital and is also a good friend of mine, to get my treatment done there. I had consulted the hospital's uro-oncologist Dr. Yuvaraja T. B., who lucidly explained to me what my condition is, the different options I can go for and also suggested what would be the best way to go about treating this.
I was admitted on 8th July 2009. The admission and even the document submission at the TPA desk went about very smoothly. The nurses who were attending to me were very caring and professional in their work. I had developed some minor complications post surgery which was addressed very promptly and professionally by the attending doctors. I was also highly impressed by the infection control team, who maintained the cleanliness of the room I was in every single day. The hospital does have strict restrictions on visitors and outside food; but I respect this fact as I understand how important it is for the patient to have his/her own space and be in a clean, bacteria-free area during the entire treatment process.
I would also like to commend how extremely well your hospital maintains the OTs and utilizes state-of-the-art equipment.
I had a wonderful experience at the Kokilaben Hospital across site as far as the expertise the treatment and the care, the diet, the high standard of asepsis, the high end equipments used .
In fact my brother in law has to undergo bypass surgery; He was to have it done at another hospital, I have recommended him to have it done at Kokilaben Hospital across site. Dr. Pradeep Kaul would be performing the surgery on Friday the 7th of August.
The other good thing about Kokilaben Hospital across site is that since the doctors work full time in the hospital they are available always and there is no commercial angle to the treatment recommended. They would not recommend unnecessary treatment and the charges quoted.
So, a particular treatment doesn't change much at the time of discharge as it happens in other big hospitals.
I thank you and Mr. Anil Ambani and all those involved in developing Kokilaben Hospital across site for giving us this hospital where we can get the best treatment possible at affordable charges.
I would certainly recommend Kokilaben Hospital across site to all my acquaintances.
I met you at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital,Mumbai on 29-08-2013 along with my co-brother Dr,Kishor & other family members.After going through test reports & physical examination it was diagnosed that I have localized Ca Prostate.
A step by step counseling done by you,where in the line of treatments were explained in detail.The advantages of Robotic assisted radical prostatectomy were also explained.It was also made clear that post surgery there might be little inconvenience while passing urine,which would be temporary in nature.Your unbiased advise & clarity of thoughts were of great help to me,there by I could muster courage & confidence.
My surgery was done under your care on 13-09-2013.My post surgery experience was pleasant & unique.It was literally minimum invasive & recovery was fast.On 3rd day of my surgery I could walk & eat normal food.
I was discharged on 18-09-2013 with catheter & advised to visit after 5days for catheter removal.On 23-09-2013 the catheter was removed.From that day onwards I have not experienced any problem while passing urine.
During my stay at KBDA Hospital I felt that I was in safe place & in the safe hands of Dr,Yuvaraja & the team.I could feel the humane touch in all actions of doctors & nursing staff.I extend my gratitude to you sir & your team for the yeomen service you are rendering to the humanity.
I will be reaching Mumbai on 2nd December2013 & hope to meet you on 3rd December2013 for follow up consultation
