Dr.Somasundaram is extremely Frank and down to earth. He was able to explain the process involved in treating the ailment in layman terms and prepared me to expect certain changes . Mental preparation is critical to the recovery process and I was happy to have his constant support .
Dr. Somasundaram has the highest standards of professional ethics and medical expertise. My family is indebted to him for saving my mother from an incorrect diagnosis and course of treatment. My mother was exhibiting very peculiar symptoms like eye ptosis, body numbness and weakness. With spinal and other miscellaneous complications ruled out, she was referred to another neurologist initially who declared that the diagnosis was myasthenia gravis, though the antibody tests did not conclusively point to it! As a family, we were given the option of plasmapheresis (costing 6lakhs) or intensive immunotherapy (costing 12 lakhs) which did not seem right because the tests did not seem conclusive! After consulting an additional two neurologists, we finally came across Dr. Somasundaram and his patients' experiences with his treatment. After the first examination, he said he knew what the disease could be, asked us to take that exact blood test and indeed, came to the correct diagnosis of stiff person syndrome! Because of his to-the-point and proactive identification, he was able to quickly start the relevant treatment as my mother was till that point not on any corrective medication because of all the previous incorrect diagnoses. Three months down, my mother has made a rapid improvement in her health and not a day goes by that we don't think of what her condition would have been of not for Dr. Somasundaram's expertise. Among doctors that choose the most lucrative diagnosis possible from each patient, we are grateful to have heard of Dr. Somasundaram at the right time and his intervention has saved my mother from a harrowing, intensive and incorrect treatment especially given her fragile medical history. A thorough professional through and through.
I would like to start by thanking Dr. Somasundaram and the team at Prashanth Hospital for their commitment and dedication. This is with regard to my father’s treatment. Dr. Somasundaram has been extremely helpful throughout. His kind nature and approachability at all times go a long way in assuring the patient’s family that they are in good hands. To sum up:
*** ************ ************* ** *** ** *** ****** ******* * **** **** ****** ** ** ***** Sir has treated my father and me in the best possible manner. Sir takes into account every minute details of the patient before prescribing any medication. Sir immensely understood what we as family were going through during the most difficult phase of our life. Sir has always been there for us, literally 24*7, not only through physical appointments but Sir has also eased the respective patient’s anxiety by providing telephonic consultation without any waiting time. The encouragement and supportiveness that Sir has bestowed upon us is something for which we as family shall forever remain obliged to Sir. Sir, Doctors like you are rare.
