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).
