Dr.Nitish was a God send for us who guided us in this harrowing time when at the age of 49 I suddenly experienced pain in my chest and arm.Dr Nitish’s expertise and strong skill made him catch on the otherwise inconspicuous glitch , recommended further tests which turned out to be a shocking reality for us. I am eternally indebted to this kind,humble,expert who really was our knight in shining armour.He and his dedicated secretary Sapna helped us out through our entire hospital experience at Escorts.Thank you Sir for being their in our difficult time.Regards Manoj and Ritu🙏🏻
Professional approach with a personal touch as always. The ability to explain medical jargon in layman’s language is a boon for his patients
Extremely friendly person with awesome knowledge of Cardiology. His advice is always based on facts. The doctor does not prescribe medicines without any need for them. Highly recommended.
I am fully aware with Dr. Nishith Chandra since June, 2004 when I was attacked with 95 percent blockage in LDV. By Dr. Nishith Chandra's supervision my heart operated thru Engioplasty. That act was fully satisfied. Till date I am not facing no problems as well as no issue. Every year, I attend with him for annual check up. Every year he advice me in proper way considering my health. So, in a single line I may describe him "he is like a God to me." Moreover, his behaviour and team work is awasom. So, I pay my full respect to him.
