Consulted Dr. Praveen C R (General Surgeon) for Fistulectomy
I recommend the doctor
Happy with: Doctor friendlinessExplanation of the health issue
I am 37 yrs, male. I live and work in USA for the past decade. I visited Dr Praveen CR (Columbia Asia Hospital, Whitefield Office) in Feb 2020, concerned about a posterior protrusion during a visit to my parents in India. Dr, Praveen diagnosed it to be a Fistula in the very first meeting and advised me to promptly undergo surgery to stop its further spread. I am glad I did. After a successful minor surgery, I am gradually recovering and feel relieved from an ailment plaguing me for 2 years. My decision to undergo, treatment, and subsequent hospital were made easy by the following:
1. His in depth knowledge about the issue. In the very first meeting, he put me to rest by illustrating the issue on a paper and explaining my many different questions. In my experience, the conversation was as in depth as with a specialist doctor in USA.
2. He never rushed my visit or made me wait. Meeting him each time has been very pleasant and polite. This has led to better doctor-patient bond.
3. He accommodate my concern of return to USA and personally helped schedule the operation on time
4. His tone with me has been re-assuring from the start. Surgery did scare me and my folks. But his tine and confidence and expert advice made all the different.
5. His bedside manner are the best I have seen among all doctors so far. He is respectful, sensitive to cultural concerns. I would not hesitate to take my family members for future visits.
6. He did not hospitalize me after surgery unnecessarily. Thus a saving me time, and hospital costs. I was discharged after the same day after a review
7. He was easy to reach out to and schedule an appointment with. He was there for my visit even though most doctors refused to come hospital due to COVID scare.
For me, he is a textbook definition of good doctor. I would not hesitate to visit or refer him based on my experience of Fistula surgery. Thumbs up for knowledge, accessibility, empathy and friendly manner of consultation
