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.
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 .
