I was admitted in the hospital for backpain and fainting. Doctors examined me and i was not satisfied with the diagnosis. At that time my best friend suggested Dr.Refai .My wife explained the ailment I was admitted in the hospital for backpain and fainting. Doctors examined me and i was not satisfied with the diagnosis. At that time my best friend suggested Dr.Refai .My wife explained the ailment overphone.She was very much impressed about the the doctor's guidance . We discharged from madurai and proceeded to chennai for treatment. I had breathing problem and fainted continously. His findings through Echo, CTand Doppler revealed thrombus in lung and left leg. Without any delay (around 10.45 pm) , Dr. rang us and informed that this could be cured with injection and medicine. I am undergoing treatment. From then i am getting improved day by day. I feel secured in safe hands of the best Dr, i never (ever)met. Being a Doctor, He (Dr.Refai ) is a man of simplicity. His patience in explaining the path of treatment made us strong. Great, he is not only a Dr, he is a God to save our life. more..
