When a family gets mentally disturbed due to medical emergencies, getting a RIGHT DOCTOR, becomes the most important person in life to ease out and handle the situations.
By GOD'S GRACES, we were blessed to have DR.PRASHANT CHHAJED in our difficult times.
My mom had Cardia medical history. Unfortunately she badly infected her lungs due to H1N1.
Dr. Chhajed's presence in our life during our difficult times was not less than a miracle for us..
He is an amazing person, who takes and guids us with his accurate decisions.
His guidance always helped to find us diagnosis of disease *** **** ******** **********
We were so fortunate to have his regular guidance and follow up with correct line of action.
God is really great to give us such a GREAT PERSON IN OUR LIFE..
I personally visited doctor for 2nd opinion when my mother was admitted for 6 days in ICU and had been diagnosed for bilateral pneumonia and fibre optic bronchoscopy was suggested by treating doctor.Dr. Prashant and his team patiently discussed and reviewed all reports x-ray, CT scan and suggested not to go ahead with bronchoscopy and continue with antibiotics treatment for few days and assured it will get cured.next I visited once my mother was out of ICU and started recovering well, Dr Prashant reviewed the progress and medicine and striked out some medicine which helped to reduce dizziness and increase conciousness level.Doctors ability to understand health condition without seeing patient and just by looking at reports and suggestion on line of treatment helped me make right decision and get my mother out of critical condition shows the amazing experience, knowledge and expertise in lung related health conditions.I highly recommend Dr Prashant and team.
Dr Prashant Chhajed is well learned, experienced doctor. He attends the patient personally and well satisfies the queries of patient. He has team of dedicated doctors at Santacruz West clinic. The clinic is modern and comfortable. The fees is reasonable. While attending admitted patients at hospitals full attention regarding medicines, patients / family members queries is given by Dr Chhajed. May the God bless Dr Prashant Chhajed to serve the society.
A wonderful caring individual with a booming practise -yet kind enough to take as much time as is needed with patients.
Such doctors combining skills and sharing patients concerns are hard to find.
I knew about Dr.Prashant and his expertise on lung disease from the source of google only So today visited to Fortis Hiranandani (Vashi) for My Mom's Checkup.
But this Expert Dr don't have much time for their patients ,so kept some junior dr who will note down all your concern regarding the health and then he explain to Dr Prashant.
So In My case he missed so many things to explain and not checked carefully all her exisiting reports and CT scan /X-ray report which already done before.
So Dr Suggested for some reports and test which already done before but he didnt checked in the files due to short of time.
And they charged 1700 rs for this activity.
Don't visit Fortis Hiranandani for this Dr's Appointment.
So far so good
I have benefitted
It's a life time relationship
I am hopeful, my trust will not diminish in the Dr all along the way
Wonderful and satisfied hopefully it will give some good results

Doctor was very professional. I have been visiting the doctor for more than a month and I am satisfied with his treatment. *** ********* ********** **** **** *** the hospital staff were supportive.
Very kind and soft spoken thoroughly satisfied with the treatment to start.
A special request to doctor to increase his days of visit frm once a week to atleast thrice a week at hospital.
With regards to doctor.
