I must really to say n recommend here, about good thing and great highly professional, friendly Physician Dr.Sibithooran. I been going through known case of acute pancreatitis and acute digestive gastrointestinal issue for more than two years. invariably I have to admit in a hospital every month for my pancreatitis pain in the past one year in another hosp. Last March, begin of month, I went to consulted Dr.Sibithooran and he also initially started treating my abdomen pain issue as process. but suggested me for endoscope assisted duodinam level assesement and then diagnosed with Rapid test kit for stomach bacterial infection and treated me for corporal stomach erosion due to Bacteria. he prescribed 10 days course of treatment by tablet, YES, the acute pain gradually subsidised in 5th day and 7th day.. it is been so nice for the past 45 days absolutely no reoccurring pain event at all, no Stacy bloating, vomitting, and above all no pain killers. Excellent professional diagnosis and treatment done by very great professional. I am thankful to him.********* ********* ** **** highly regard and respect his kindness and professional touch. (else I will end up in treating pancreatitis in blind way what used to be in the past at other hospital).Thanks a ton Dr. You really cracked my perolonge issue. Now, I am back to normal diet. Doctors are God! Varman
I had taken my 87 year old aunt to Dr. Sibithooran since she was ailing. He was extremely friendly and approachable and was kind enough to explain the entire treatment procedure in layman terms. The confidence he gave was tremendous and we believed that he would give his best. While the procedure was over by around 7 PM, he stayed back till midnight to ensure she is back to normal especially as she was given general anesthesia. A couple of times, when I needed some clarification, he was ready to give me a patient hearing and respond to queries, even between his busy OP schedule. The faith on a doctor itself contributes towards quicker recovery.
A sugar patient was asked to come by 8.15 empty stomach. but doctor came late by 2 hrs**** **** ** *** *** *** * ****** ****** ******* In case he is into some emergency. Some other doctor should be available.
