Dr. Deepak Krishnamurthy has been treating my mother since 2014. It was purely accidental that we ended up with this doctor but what a blessing it turned out to be! When many senior doctors gave up on my mother, it was Dr. Deepak Krishnamurthy who completely took charge and practically got mom to live a normal life again. One of the best Cardiologists I have come across! In fact, one of the nicest human being I have met lately. If not for him, I don’t know how I would have dealt with Mom’s health crisis. Even now, I shudder when I remember how helpless I had felt with Mom at one point of time. Things have completely changed for Mom since then. I can only say God was with us when Dr. Deepak Krishnamurthy came into our lives! We owe him a lot!
He was in hurry to leave.. not in a mood to listen too.. absolutely no value for time.
