We came to NU hospital for the Prostate and Hernia treatment of my father in June 2021. Right from the time we approached Dr Prasanna for an appointment we experienced an immense sense of compassion and balanced guidance.
Every element of treatment at the hospital is taken with the patient as the center of consideration -
- Administrative staff including Ms Prathibha, Ms Tanushri, Ms Chetana, and Ms Suma - they coordinate all the appointments and instructions given by the doctors during consultation. They remind you about your next appointment! Even the staff at registration including Ms Selvi who explained the financials for the hospitalization are very helpful, well spoken and hardworking.
- Nursing staff (Sincy, Riju, and Anappa in the ICU, we were on 3rd floor room post ICU- Nurses Barkha, Sherry, Support staff Prasad Rao helped bathe my father on the 2nd day after the surgery - Dad said he felt like he was in his childhood being bathed by his mother
- Finally, the Doctors’ team is par excellence starting from Dr Prasanna, Dr Pramod, Dr Sridhar Pandit, and the doctors team supporting the operation and post op care including Dr Kamal Sachdev, Dr Riju, and Dr Nishant in the ICU
Overall, it is indeed our great fortune to know Dr Swathi through whom we came to NU hospital for my father’s Urology treatment - May Lord bless the entire NU hospitals family as they give good care to thousands of patients every year! Thank you and God bless!
Doctor Prasanna is amazing, friendly explains things very clearly, not rushing to any surgery, slow and steady. He treated my father for his urinary retention and his steady clear approach made my father to come out of the issue without surgery. Definitely recommends Dr. Prasanna Venkatesh.
HI this is Pavan, First of all Thanks to NU Hospitals, because i've an appointment with Mr. Dr Prasanna Venkatesh at 2:45pm due to heavy traffic i reached hospital at 4:15pm, with a small request they have accepted my concern, & made an appointment with Dr. A huge tones of Thanks to Miss, Sarala, who is attendant to Dr & Patient, she received me with a a smile, answering with smile, after waiting for 15min, entered into Dr chamber, he received with smile too, he explained me the situation in a simple manner & understandable language, later he enquired about my situation, he did not suggested me take all scanning, he just suggested me to take whichever required tests only, later he suggested me to consult Mr, Prasanna Kumar Kamble, he is also super guy, explained me about my health status with the small general example, he is awesome too. Dr, Kamble suggested me to take 4 weeks of medication but Pharmacy guy gave me tablets only for 4 days. You need to very careful to take the tablets etc. But anyways luckily i met Dr. Prasanna , he is excellent. Thanks Mr. Prasanna Venkatesh & entire team
Dr. Prasanna Venkatesh, strongly recommended and insist for the treatment after identifying stricture in one of the tests called RGU. I was suffering from prolonged UTI for a month, and a dynamic obstruction in the flow. His ethical words touched my heart, he said " once you identifying the cause you should get treated for it, whether you decide here or any where else. " that was his Frank opinion,... Then I decided to under go these procedure and experienced the ********* treatment from him, he is very positive, confident on his decision and work.
Over all my experience is good with full team of the nu hospital.... Now in 5 days I recovered and my fallow up test like uroflowmetry shown **** result then pre procedure. I'm thank full to Dr.prasanna& team
Very bad service from NU hospital Rajajinagar, sister's kid with kidney stones went last week. Hospital staff made them run around with different tests ** ******* **** ****** ** ******** started to call outside hospital to take other doctors opinion and recommended to get more tests outside.
Again with the report when they took appointment of dr.prasanna Venkatesh at 12pm today made them wait till 2:30 an told doctor went out 10 mins ago for emergency an will be available only on Saturday...
Never recommend this hospital to anyone
Many thanks to NU hospital Rajajinagar and specially to Dr. Anant Kamat, Dr. Prasanna Venkatesh and Dr. Krishna Prasad. My son Swastik was complaining left stomach pain from last 1 year. But the pain was not continues. When I did an ultrasound sound of his lower abdomen. We got to know that his left kidney was showlen and quite larger than the right one. I visited one doctor from a reputed hospital in Bangalore and he spent only two minutes and after some test he asked me to come to hospital when he will have the pain again. It was not at all satisfactory to me. Then I went to Anant sir at NU hospital. He spent around half an hour with me and explained the problem really clear and crystal. He referred me to Prasanna sir for further consultation. After consulting with Prasanna sir my son went for a laproscopic pyloplasty surgery and the way the doctors and staffs treated my him was quite nice and they made everything so easy. Thank you sir for your treatment. I really great full to you.
I am very happy to meet Dr.Prashant and he explained to me in great detail about my health issues and suggested solutions for the same.
His friendly manner will put any patient at ease.
It is a pleasure to recommend him to any one facing urological problem.
Thank you doctor.

There are doctors in first look will give you sense of calm and give confidence.. DR. Prasanna is one..
He is very calm and did excellent line of treatment. When Corporate hospitals doctors advised for immediate procedure(you know why), this doctor said let us give nature a chance and this stone will pass on it own..
**** **** ********
Dr Venkat is a humble person. Went to him for followup TUIP procedure dome to my father, he analysed patient properly with tests. Following up regular intervals and explaining what could lead to this is goos of him.
Have visited him for 3 patients.. He is quite good.. Would recommend him.
By birth he is treating my child very happy about his treatment .....thank you to NU Team all.....His friendliness, co operation with patient , understanding and explanation about the treatment and disease all are excellent doctor. Very happy and lucky to find Dr .Prasanna sir. Thank you so much once again for happy treatment.
