Dr. Praveer Agarwal, in Jun 2018, performed an angioplasty procedure on me on a 100% blocked (ISR) artery for last 6-7 years and had been attempted unsuccessfully by two very competent doctors in Apr 2015 & Nov 2017. The procedure lasted almost 5:30 hrs on the CATH table in 2 sittings (on 06 Jun & 08 Jun) and required tremendous skill and patience, that I could see & feel while on the table. We are very grateful to Dr Praveer Agarawal for such a wonderful job. May God continue to bless him to able to save lives of people. In general also, our experience at Fortis Escorts was very good and all the staff and nurses were professional, helpful and cordial.
Waited there for more than 3 hours.
