I had visited Doctor Doiphode in October 2020 to show my snoring problem . After checkup doctor suggested me a sleep study test which i underwent and came to know that i had a severe sleep apnea . i visited few ent for 2nd opinion but got very mixed reviews . Doctor Doiphode had suggested to me that if i dont treat this condition now , it may lead to other health hazards like diabetes , blood pressure etc . One whole year i did not take any decision for treatment of this condition . My snoring got really bad and i had apnea episodes almost every day . also it was very difficult for me to lose weight as there was tiredness always in my day to day chores . So in Oct 2021 i came to doctor Doiphode and decided to undergo surgery for obstructive sleep apnea . He basically removed tonsils , tightened pallates and performed septoplasty . I was scared with the amount of surgery to be done in my breathing area and throat /nose but trusted the doctor and went ahead with it . First few days after surgery were tough as my nose was blocked and i had to breathe through my mouth but within 3-4 days after removal of cotton from my nose the breathing somewhat normalised . i had to take some painkillers and avoid lot of food as food intake was paining in the neck . So basically i was on liquids and soft food for first 10 days but slowly started taking solid food . The healing process is gradual and fast after 15 days of surgery . Doctor Doiphode and his assistant Mr Mahesh were very helpful on whatsapp and phone whenever i needed any guidance or medicine . its been one month post surgery and i can say that my snoring has decreased almost 40 % and breathing has normalised and i dont wake up with a jerk at night and tears . I can eat almost everything now . Only the stitches in throat area sometimes hurt and nasal area is a little sore otherwise i am able to do my day to day activity freely . Dr Doiphode has been very supportive and i thank him for bringing this definitive change in my body which will help me to sleep properly and enhance my quality of life .
Dr Ajay Doiphode was very approachable and easy to talk to. Very calmly took me through my issue and the course of treatment.
A very friendly doctor to start with even if you are worried, the doctor makes you calm down.
it's been 8 days off my visit to doctors clinic, and I'm much better , breathing well no discomfort in my nose and throat, the very next day I was at relief with the right medication the doctor gave. going to visit again with few reports and then will go ahead with the treatment.... till now very much happy with the care taken. doctor doiphode is very thoughtful. felt heard and understood.
