Managing Director and Senior Consultant of K.K.R ENT Hospital & Research Institute, Kilpauk and KKR ENT Super Specialty Hospital, Maduravoyal.
2 years ago at the age of 45, I had started feeling to hear less and was feeling lost while in conversations during office meetings.
I went for a check up to an ENT and was told that there was a conductive loss in both my ears.Apart from the hearing loss in my left year an infection (medical term-Cholesteatoma) was diagnosed.
I consulted various ENT surgeons in Chennai & Mumbai and everyone suggested the similar line of treatment including Dr.Ravi Ramalingam.(MD-KKR ENT Hospital And Research Institute (P) Ltd-Chennai).
Though all the doctors were optimistic about restoring the hearing only, Dr.Ravi Ramalingam gave the confidence that any conductive loss can be restored with a 99% success rate.
With this confidence, I decided to get myself operated at KKR under Dr.Ravi Ramalingam.
On February 27th 2018, I was operated on my left ear for the infection and after one year, on February 23rd this year I was operated on my right ear for the restoration of the hearing .
Under the supervision of Dr.Ravi Ramalingam and his efficient team I have been recuperating very well.
The team at KKR is very well equipped not only medically but also administratively.
From the registration to the preliminary check up/pre operative tests to admission, discharge and the post operative tests almost everything was seamless and utmost professionalism was displayed at every step.
I opted for a cashless surgery through my mediclaim policy which was also handled very smoothly without running to various desks which otherwise is the case in many large hospitals.
Thank you Dr.Ravi Ramalingam for the wonderful treatment. I feel more confident and secure. Kudos to you and your team.
Wishing you the very best in world of healing.
Procedure done : Septoplasty with Tonsillectomy (21 Jul)
Surgeon : Ravi Ramalingam (Thanks doc , I can breathe better already)
- Quick diagnosis by Ravi sir after CT scan and decided on date , surgery process was straight forward with not much delay.
- insurance was hassle free with Vidal TPA corporate cashless approved , all medical expenses claimable too
- room was clean , discharged next day
- Consultation waiting time is quite a bit
- Expensive routine blood test and urine test on first visit
- Nurses are loud and a bit rude
- NO PARKING
The doctor is very friendly and helpful and the entire diagnosis process was smooth. My mother was diagnosed with Sinusitis and he treated her perfectly. One thing I want all the Practo users to know that when the doctor gives out prescription to you, make sure that the prescription has the doctor's registration number as it will be needed for all medicines that require prescription, when you try to order medicine on Practo. My mother got the prescription, but it doesn't have Prof. Ravi Ramalingam's registration number, so it was problematic with Practo when I tried to order the prescribed medicines.
We were their with lots of hope that he will suggest something good with ref. to Dr. Hashmukhlal from Odisha. But we can't meet him. Not satisfied....
Doctor is very much cardial and informative explaining in detail regarding nasal problem.pre and post surgical care is very nice.they asked us to come for consultation after one month of surgery,during consultation Dr.raviramalingam sir checked patiently and explained in detail.we are very much Happy with treatment and hospitality
I. Didn't meet any doctor for my treatment ,,,,only audio therapy was done to test my hearing capacity ,,,,this is my first visit to kkr ent hospital. I found it neet clean and well received by the staff ,,,,I will tell my experience after full treatment is over ok
Dr.Ravi Ramalingam Sir is very friendly person. He's explaining what's the procedure he's going perform and why it has to be performed.
Normally senior Doctors will not have much time to spend with patient because many will be waiting. But I don't know how He's managing.
Hats off to him.
A very good ENT specialist, a good surgeon who handles atleast 2 or 3 surgeries everyday, specialized in removing Glomus Tumors, Cochlear implants, Deviated Nasal septum and other ENT related.
He will not try to take advantage of your situation, 100% recommendable..
Hearty appreciations to Dr Hareesh as well prof Ravi Ramalingam both were at their best ......
Systematic approach, logical in explaining my Ear blockage issues, advised professionaly , faithful and real friendly manner of both doctor and professor......as well the audiometry and X Ray process were also very able and quick in service.
Delay was unavoidable ...
Prescribed with minimal drugs'
Excellent doctor very good and polite approach, speaks honestly and explains in detail about the problem and suggests remedies, staffs are good and patients are well taken care. disciplined hospital. I recommed people suffering from ear problems to visit this doctor.
