I visited this doctor based on the recommendations on practo. My mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and had to undergo the 2nd operation which is omentectomy with lymph node dissection. We visite I visited this doctor based on the recommendations on practo. My mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and had to undergo the 2nd operation which is omentectomy with lymph node dissection. We visited Dr Sandeep Nayak for a second opinion. But we decided to get the surgery done for my mother by him as we were totally impressed with the way he spoke and explained. Overall a great doctor with huge amount of patience. He answered all my queries with so much patience. On day 1 at his clinic, he sat with us for 1 full hour to explain us the problem. Helped me understand what the problem was and why the treatment/surgery was being given/had to be done for my mother. As per doctor's recommendation, my mother underwent surgery at ramakrishna hospital. He is a doctor who is really passionate about solving the problem rather than the one who is behind money. Even the follow up checkup , we were not charged. This shows that he is so genuine, compassionate and caring.

We need doctors like Dr. Sandeep Nayak.

Overall, hugely satisfied with the treatment given by Sandeep Sir and now my mother has completed the staging surgery and is now under observation.
