I am writing this review with the sole purpose of passing on my horrid experience with Dr.Niranjan Kulkarni & his pseudo Medical intelligence .
My father is seventy one years old and was diagnosed with CKD( Chronic Kidney Disease). We did multiple tests as prescribed by the doctor/hospital including the Kidney biopsy of my Seventy One year old father. All the tests including the biopsy clearly indicated to any intelligent doctor that the Kidney was beyond any stage of revival. This we later got confirmed by much better doctors in Bangalore who were taken aback and surprised by some of the innovative experiments that Dr.Niranjan Kulkarni tried.
On the onset before I get to the core issue let me add that he was an extremely insensitive doctor who behaved as though he was doing the patients a favour. He had no time speak with the anxious relatives waiting for hours together in front of the ICU praying for a chance to meet or speak with the doctor to learn the condition of the critical patient.
He decided to try reviving the certified failed Kidneys of my seventy one year old father by giving him a heavy dosage of immuno-suppresants STEROIDS* ** **** *** **************** with a heavy dosage of Eighty mg for three months .thus killing his immunity at seventy one yrs.From there on he went down hill . He had frequent fever,infections and NO medicine had any effect as his IMMUNITY was DEAD.
All the doctors in other were surprised that a heavy dosage of steroid given for such a long period to a seventy one year old kidney FAILED patient is DEADLY. We lost him recently.He could have gone through basic Dialysis till he lived but the experiment on his condition accelerated his deterioration thus leading to his death with ZERO IMMUNITY.
So.... BE warned on the medication given by this doctor....
