Well experienced doc with wide area of expertise. My mother was admitted to the prime hospital on a cardiac problem and was attended by Dr.Raghu. I could notice a swift, experienced and expertise actions from the doctor that are most needed for a patient. Dr.Raghu was extremely cordial and friendly in explaining the condition. His words added a sign of relief and a positive vibe to our family. He took immense care of my mother all those days in the hospital and the discharge was really quick. The follow up check ups are equally satisfactory and truly appreciated. My mother is doing good now.
He is very cordial. explains neatly. Fixes appointment as per requirements of patient . Angioplast was done in the year 2014 and till now I have not faced any problem . Initially he fixes appointment once in three months and gradually increased it to six months presently my appointment is once in a year . During my visit he does **** ********* tests . I am very much satisfied with his treatment
This has been an ongoing consultation since July 2017. I am alive today because of him. His approach to every patient is unique. He considers the holistic conditions of the patient and then treats them. I am definitely lucky to find and get such a doctor.
I am Ramesh Y (66 Yrs) retired from the services of FCI in 2011. Undergone PTCA with stenting for the blocks in different occasions during 2000 and 2006, when Dr C Raghu was the Director of Cardiology Dept at Yesodha Hospitals. During 2013 CAG was performed and revealed that the above stents implanted long back i.e., more than 15 years are found to be in good intact condition and thus Dr. Raghu instigated a sort of self-cnfidence which made me to drive away my cardiac fear and thus prompted me to forget that I am a Cardiac patient. Ofcourse, I used to contact him occasionally for periodic check ups and I am so fascinated at the friendly affection shown towards me. I, therefore believe that the role of a Doctor should not only confine towards super speciality treatment but building confidence is more important to survive longer. Once again thanks to Dr C Raghu to continue his unstinted services to the patients deserved. Ramesh Y (Mobile 9866703888).
My mother is a Cardiac patient with Bye-Pass surgery 5 years back elsewhere and we visited him twice for Cardiology consultation and Pulmonary disease. Though the physiological response was slow possibly due to my mothers immunological condition, as a Cardiologist he is good to examine the patient and interact with them well and prescribe suitably, but doesn't explain prescription clearly like whether any of the prev. medications are to be continued or not. Though support staff at Aster Prime were okay, appointments with this doctor go haywire by several hours due to poor scheduling as Doctors time distribution between his procedures/inpatients and OP is totally unpredictable and erratic, and timely information by the hospital to patients for rescheduling was lacking. They should value patients/ attendants time.
I have been seeing the same doctor for over 2 years now without any problems , to be fair I have probably given them more problems and never been the model patient .
But they have stuck by me and worked with me on all of my health problems.
I hear people saying they can't get in to their doctors for a week , where I have always got the same day appointment.
The Hospital has friendly staff and always answer the phones which is again rare in today's scenario with many hospitals
A Thumbs up to Dr. Raghu
I had a visit to prime hospitals located at ameerpet, Hyderabad. I had a consultation with Dr.Raghu who have 18+ years of experience in cardio. I got confidence by seeing his profile. My consultation started 10 min late, even though he took enough time to investigate my heart condition and explained in detail about the problems and major reasons why I have the issue. Initially the problem was little typical, later it become normal. Now I can do my regular tasks without any risk, still I am on regular monitoring by the doctor Raghu sir.
I should thank for his patience and care about the patients. Till the date there is no change in the way of receiving by the doctor and staff. This is what a common man expects from a reputed hospital and the doctors. Thanks a lot.
**** ******* friendly in nature & patient in explaining the conditions & treating in a soft & polite manner.
He was so nice he had been answering email querries immediately and solved my problems.its a pleadure to visit him.
*** ***** ***** ** **** ****** *** very friendly. I took my father for treatment. He treats his patients with utmost respect and care. Spends some time with them and give guidance too. Only most problamatic is WAIT TIME. If you have sufficient time and you have patience enough for waiting then go and visit him for sure. Don't expect you will be called before 2hrs of giving your file to his assitant. But nevertheless the wait is rewarding since he is best in his JOB. If wait time is streamlined then it would be wonderful. As more apps are coming, this should not be a problem to solve if hospital thinks so.
