Nice and lovely experience with Dr..
Explained all details patiently. ......
All the very best, Dr.......
Very friendly and amiable. Took time to understand the problem and explained the issues in layman terms. Would definitely recommend
Very friendly and a humble personified person. Gave a detailed info about my muscle condition and where i exactly stood as far as my body was concerned. His prescribed medicines & physiotherapy really helped my muscles to relax and in turn helped me to sleep without any leg pain. A Special mention on his physiotherapy team. Both Leo & Ilakiya were extremely kind and very methodical in their approach. Overall, it was a satisfying consultation and i felt i had come at the right time This is my candid feedback about Dr, Damodaran.
It was a weekday afternoon and I was at work as usual.
My mom called me and said - "Dad (72 yrs) fell down and injured his head and leg, come home"
I rushed home and found that injury on head was bleeding and he could not move due to the leg injury.
Called family doctor for help, luckily he provided Dr. Damodharan contact info.
Immediately called him and explained the situation.
He provided some tips to stop the bleeding and ambulance info.
Called Apollo OMR ambulance and informed the location.
Ambulance arrived quickly and started for hospital after first aid.
Met Dr. Damodharan in emergency ward. He examined and assured nothing to worry about.
He explained the issue clearly with the X-Ray and need of an immediate femur neck fracture surgery.
He understood our anxiety and answered all our questions and concerns with patience.
Entire family got relieved and were filled with confidence with his reassurance.
Immediately after surgery, he met us and said that the surgery went well and showed us the implant pics.
After couple of days we got discharged and went home.
I really appreciate the post-op support he provided through WhatsApp and Phone.
He answered numerous questions I had, with patience and offered medical care when needed.
Now my Father is happy, healthy and relieved from all the trauma he went through.
Dr. Damodharan is very friendly, kind and service-minded with positive attitude.
He not only treats physical injuries but also provides mental strength and supported us throughout this phase.
Thanks a lot for all the help and support 🙏
The doctor was very friendly and explained in detail about why I had pain in my shoulder and the treatment for the same. He prescribed medicines as well as physiotherapy with in-house specialists. The environment was clean and professional. I was able to easily fix appointment with the doctor by co-ordinating with his secretary and was able to meet him at the appointed time. The doctor's experience and excellence played a big role in boosting up my confidence. Apart from being a good doctor, he is a great human.
Thank you so much for all your contribution and efforts that you do to keep us well.
I really admire all your dedication towards your work. Thanks for being an amazing doctor.
Dr Damodaran was patient enough to listen to my problems. He took time to understand and assess the problem. He gave a beautiful explanation of my problem and the proposed treatment. His explanation was so good even a layman like me could understand. He was open about the proposed treatment and also was honey to say if the treatment will be effective or not. He also made me aware that my case was quite unique and could potentially become a case study. He did not rush with his treatment and was patient and suggested a phased treatment. Overall a very good experience and complete satisfaction.
Dr Damo is very friendly, humane, and service-minded. I had consulted for my friend who met with an accident and had Calcaneal multiple fracture.
Dr. Damo was very patient, listened to the entire sequence of events, provided telephonic consultation to my friend who was in Neyveli, reviewed his records (X-rays) online, diagnosed spot on and suggested for the correct surgery.
Doctor had a special calming effect on my friend and his family, gave them complete confidence, assurance and helped them even with all aspects of hospitalization. The surgery was successful, and my friend is able to walk now.
Apart from physical cure and clarity, we thank and appreciate the guidance, positive attitude, assurance, and confidence Dr Damo provided during the critical situation.
Thanks to Dr. Damo, I would highly recommend Dr Damo to all.
Dr Damodaran treated my 91 year uncle for a left hip fracture sustained from a fall in his room.
Right from his first visit to assess my uncle at home, followed by the admission process in Apollo Hospital, Perungudi,
the surgery itself and then the post operative care was so well organised by Dr Damodaran and his team.
That my uncle is able to get up from bed on his own and to be able to sit, stand and walk (with minimal assistance) after
3 weeks from surgery is testimony for his surgical and patient management skills. My uncle enjoys the care, respect and attention
given by Dr Damodaran which probably helped him to get over this ordeal with minimal discomfort.
Thank you very much Dr Damodaran for everything.
Giving 5 stars for such an incredible doctor ***** ** **********.i would give him 100**. An amazing doctor who knows exactly how to treat the person in pain with ease. I have never seen a doctor spending so much time for one patient and trying to ease the pain with his treatment. Would definitely recommend people . Wonderful human being very down to earth. Was very lucky to be treated by such an amazing doctor.
I have been visiting Dr. Damo for my shoulder and neck problems. He is very friendly and professional. He takes time to listen and understand the concerns. It is a delightful experience - excellent clinic atmosphere - neat & clean, friendly staff - especially the physiotherapist staff are very caring and ensuring the personalized treatment.
Thank you Dr for your great care and service.
