I was suffering from hernia for a long time and about 10 days ago, the pain became unbearable. I was unable to sleep or even walk so I decided to have a surgery. I live in sector 8 in gurgaon, so searched for it's treatment at nearby clinics where i found out about Dr. Rakesh Mittal. He told me that he works at Pristyncare in Delhi and would perform the surgery there. The next day when i booked for the surgery, the cab came to pick me up and left me at the hospital in Delhi. The hospital's infrastucture was really good and i was asstound to see that. Quickly, I did the paper work and my surgery started. The surgery went really amazing. They even dropped me back home and till now, I've felt no pain.
Having a family background filled with doctors, I am very skeptical about the surgeries and treatments and like to have the treatment done in some well-known cities where the doctors are more reliable. My brother was suffering from severe pain due to piles. So, I booked for his treatment in a Pristyncare associated hospital in Delhi by Dr. Rakesh whom I know I can trust for the surgery due to his experience in this field. The surgery went amazing and it's been 5 months now and he's feeling no pain and I don't regret having it done by Pristyncare.
