Happy with: Doctor friendlinessExplanation of the health issueTreatment satisfactionValue for money
Our mother, (51 yrs) is a patient of Rheumatoid Arthritis since 25 yrs. We visited various doctors at various places but everyone told that knee replacement was the only option. She visited Bangalore in 2016 and the pain was so high that we had to go for the surgery. Though she was in considerable pain, she was willing to prolong it for the sake of rumours heard as many People warned us of the difficulties of the recovery period, after the surgery that there was going to be enormous pain and unless prescribed exercises are not done stringently, the whole expensive surgery would be a waste, that there is a chance that she'll lose the very functioning of her legs. These were more or less why my mom kept postponing the surgery indefinitely and endured the existing pain.
As we were not aware about the doctors here, so we used Practo, where we got to know about Dr Balasubramanyam who had 100% votes. So, we visited him and felt that in the current world where most of them see patients as customers and medical field as a business opportunity, he was the one who checked all the previous reports and also inquired about each and every problem she had. Dr. Balasubramanyam is someone who you can trust with full of confidence.
After visiting him we also visited few other hospitals like Fortis, Apollo, Hosmat where we didn't get that confidence and trust which was build with Dr Balasubramanyam. So, finally we decided for the surgery on 21st December 2016. In our first visit itself, we were given 100% assurance of successful result if it was operated and given grace time for the operating payments. Even the price for the operation costed less comparatively to any other multi specialty hospital in Bangalore. Within a week's of time the operation was conducted and the result was amazingly unexpected. As she had arthritis on both legs, she had to undergo both the knee surgery at a time *** ** ****** *** ****** *** **** ********* ******** ******* I have never seen my mother walking in perfect posture but that was seen after the operation. Also about the service and care, the hospital staffs are very co-operative. They are always ready to help. Although the hospital looks small, but the rooms are big enough in size and has all the facilities along with one attendant's bed. The room and the washroom are so neat and clean that you will not get a feeling that you are staying in a hospital.
I am very happy to declare that the surgery was a very successful one and now she can walk freely without any problem. Dr Balasubramanyam also helped us very well with insurance coverage. Dr. Balasubramanyam has been helpful throughout and open to query's all the time. I thank him for the surgery and the recovery. I recommend any patient with knee problem can undergo knee replacement with Dr Balasubramanyam without any hesitation. He is the most cooperative doctor I have ever seen. More than a doctor he his very good human being he knows about situation of people very friendly nature and dynamic there is no hide and seek treatment to waist the money patience he his very strict in follow up with patients.
Also the managing director (Satish) is very nice and co-operative, even being MD of the hospital he took care of each and everything very minutely.
He ensured that every thing goes smooth.
