We met Dr. GKT Iyer when it was known that my father has to undergo By-Pass surgery. At very first meeting, he explained the condition as in which cases By-Pass surgery would be required and further explained all queries and concerns that patient's family go through.
I met him for ASD closure, suddenly it got detected and I got panicked. First of all he patiently listened all my concerns..he suggested me treatment and surgery options very clearly..he spoke to me like a family member and instilled so much confidence.. he does spend good amount of time and speaks like your father/uncle or family member..thanks sir..hard to find your kind of doctor these days. love you always..Mounika
Dr Ganeshakrishnan Iyer is a superbly competent, efficient and friendly doctor with a history of innovations in surgery. ** ******* ********* *********** ***** ** *********** With him patients come first.
**** *** ** *** **** ***** *********** ******* ** *****. My father was diagnosed with Aortic valve stenosis and was advised immediate aortic valve replacement. We visited other doctors from other reputed hospitals, they were highly unprofessional and scared the patient. Then I got to know about Dr. Iyer, after meeting him without a second thought we decided to get surgery done from him and within a week my father underwent surgery and is getting discharged today. He's humble, clarifies all questions and very attentive to patients concerns, words do not do justice to his work. Highly highly recommend.
