Visited for Fistulotomy Surgery
I was suffering from Fistula for nearly 8 to 10 months. I consulted various doctors, but did not get any satisfactory solution from any of them. I was feeling really annoyed as I was unable to pursue my hobbies involving physical activities due to the continuous pain. Then in month of May 2020, I came across Dr. Sambit Patnaik through Practo. After an online consultation session, we fixed an in-person appointment with him for physical examination. Dr. Sambit explained the problem in detail and suggested a Laser Fistulotomy Surgery. He patiently answered all our queries and gave us comfort about the surgery. Dr. Sambit conducted the surgery with his team of doctors including Dr Vishal and an anaesthetist. The laser surgery was only for couple of minutes and the entire surgery was completed smoothly and professionally within 30 mins. Post-surgery, Dr. Sambit and Dr Vishal briefed about the post-surgery care in detail and we were discharged the same day. Post discharge, I received excellent and timely response to all my queries from both Dr. Sambit and Dr. Vishal. Both of them are approachable and responsive. Its been a week now and I feel completely relieved from the problem. I am grateful to god for connecting me with Dr. Sambit Patnaik who resolved my issue effectively. I would strongly recommend Dr. Sambit Patnaik to anyone suffering with similar issues.
Hello Readers,Most recommended doctor as a General Surgeon.I had been facing a huge discomfort due to Anal Fistulla for which i had undergone a surgery earlier.. 6 months post surgery I again felt the same discomfort and the wound from the previous surgery was also healed as yet..Through practo, I found Dr. Sambit Patnaik and paid a visit to him at Apollo Hospital, Chembur. Without prescribing for any testing he was able to xactly locate where the fistulla was forming inside the body this time (which has never been my experience with any other doctor earlier). Post examination on the table, he explained in detail about the surgery that had happened earlier my current situation and the further course of action.. The diagram that he made to explain my current situation excatly matched with the MRI report i had already.. He also assured me to not worry about it..Surgery went awesumly smooth.. Post surgery dressings (which is literally a trauma) was handled by a extremely professional and yet such a friendly doctor.. Dr. Vishal.. He is the perfect blend.. By the way, the dressings which went on for almost 2 months were free which otherwise are another troll on your pocket..Not only the wound was healed completely within 2 months but the lse 2 months i had continuous support from Dr Vishal.. I would end by saying that this team of Dr Sambit Patnaik and Dr Vishal along with their staff is the right decision for your medical difficulties.. Despite all the ill news about doctors, u can trust these doctors with your life as they have held their flags high up the air.. Thank You so much doctors.. I am grateful to find you.

Everything went well. The intial call with secretary, video call with Dr Patnaik, explanation about treatment , costs and insurance etc. The supporting team of the hospital were also proficient and helpful. Dr Vishal's preoperative instructions and post operative attention were exemplary. Apollo Spectra staff was also good .
We thank them all
My husband was suffering from piles since quite some time. At times it was unbearable and he had sleepless nights. We consulted two different doctors from well known hospitals in Mumbai. They suggested immediate admission to be operated. Not only did they scare us but were also too expensive. One doctor even mentioned of getting admitted in the hospital for 4 days including operation and recovery.
We thought of consulting one last time with some specialist and it was then we read a lot of good reviews for Dr. Sambit Patnaik.
He made us feel really comfortable and did not scare us like others. We were actually relaxed after he gave us an in-depth explanation about the case. We were truly impressed by his expertise on the subject.
We were shocked when he told us it would hardly take around 30 mins for the operation using latest equipment’s and techniques and that my husband could walk home without being admitted for even a single day.
We took an appointment for the operation. It did not take more than 40 mins for to complete the entire procedure. I could hear my husband and Dr. Sambit talk to each other about their hobbies during the entire duration of the operation.
When my husband came out of the OT, I could see a smile on his face as if nothing has happened. It was just few medicine’s and precautions for the next few days. My husband got operated on Saturday and could go to work from Monday.
It’s been months now since the operation and till date he never faced any pain like before.
P.S. I was truly impressed with the facility, caring staff and friendly can-do attitude and smiles. I would highly recommend Dr. Sambit Patnaik to anyone suffering from Piles, hemorrhoidal diseases/ fissures/ fistula.
He is good and was recommended by our relative I think one can take is review before opting for surgery
Excellent before and after support right from doctor directly.. I call Dr Patnaik Dr Whatsapp!! I guarantee you get prompt response from doctor through whatsapp.. He is very friendly and explain the problem and treatment very nice and easy way..
I am currently residing in USA and my case was diagnosed with Fistula in Ano by my local Colon specialist. But considering the cost factor(even after insurance) and not so well medical services in USA, I decided to operate in India preferably mumbai . After some online research I saw excellent feedback for Dr Patnaik and one fine day sent whatsapp message regarding my problem to the doctor . Surprised to see quick response .. step forward he asked me to send him photo's of affected area so he could get glipse of problem. That's it we agreed on date of treatment and planned thetravel accordingly.
Before I reach mumbai , doctor helped and guided me on completing all Insurance cashless formalities .. I admitted the same day I landed.. Morning diagnosis , afternoon surgery(Fistulectomy) , evening discharge.. In parallel Insurance formalities completed.. After 3 days of surgery he called for Dressing and demonstrated me on how to take care of surgical wound at home..1 Week took a rest and traveled back to USA..Superfast.. Now recovering..
I have been disturbing doctor almost daily now on whatapp with photo's of surgical area to keep track of progress. He has been very nice giving quick feedback and suggestions. Never ever missed the response and it is within a minutes.
I strongly recommend Dr Sambit Patnaik.. Particularly if you are not a resident of India it is very important to have convenience and genuine post surgery support which I find excellent with him.. Thank you doctor for all your support.

We have never experienced so good to be under any doctor's guidance. We reached hospital to visit doctor and after we completed registration immediately he called us inside for consultation. I already communicated to the doctor that my father is aged and the case is emergency. Whenever we had send whatsapp he replied, not a single msg was unanswered. We need kind of a person like him.. Because we do not know everytime what to do and when. But he gave answer to every single question..i feel sorry to disturb him in his busy schedule. But we all really need this kind of a doctor and personality as a doctor which now a days is the rarest of rare. He gave us all kind of support any doctor can give even more than that.. He took decisions which hardly a doctor will take because of risk but should be taken in emergency situation. Thank you so much to doctor Sambit Patnaik.
Doctor is very responsible in treating patients. He personally took pain to book hospital room, insurance approval. He is prompt in responding on WhatsApp for queries even before meeting him personally.
I had read a lot about laser surgery of fistula in ano, but was skeptical about pain and size of wound after surgery. Was pleasantly surprised that surgery took few minutes only with biolitec advanced laser procedure and till now I have not felt even iota of pain. Moreover the wound is a like a keyhole and pretty small.
Appreciate Doctor for all help extended by him in arranging the surgery and now I feel it was best decision to choose the doctor as he is good in his subject.
Recommending him for his helpful attitude and skillful management of surgery.
