The experience was good. The issue was diagnosed and dealt with great professionalism. The doctor gave me good advice as well.
Been to Doc Muffi many times earlier. This was a routine visit. Have undergone Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. Fantastic doctor. He has Transformed my life!!
I was touching obesity and was diabetic to the extent that I had to take insulin shots four times a day. Add to this 3 tablets for diabetes every day. It seemed like my life end all and be all was taking blood sugar readings and insulin all day. Not just this, my resistance had filled so much that I’d have one infection or another every day. Yes, every day. Add to that huge blisters on the feet like 2”X1.5”. These would take months to heal. I wasn’t living just managing my existence between infections. The surgery has not just taken away all types of medication for diabetes, BP and even cholesterol but also helped me to lose more than 25 kgs of weight. I feel lighter fitter more active and also more manageable ; ). It’s like having a whole new lease on life.
after talking to a doctor feel very peaceful the way of talking is also wow he make us understand benefits of health n he has not force for the treatment he just suggested in better way so we can easily understand n take right decision im very happy by talking with Dr. muffi
Initially the tough mindset.. lately meeting the dietitian explanation was better experience
Dr.. meeting was great although .. Until we aren't friendly the scare about surgery will remain the same ..so better be calm..as all this happening for our well being yeh..thank you
Dr. Muffi is God for me. **** ****** *** ***** He gave me my new life and is the guiding force in helping me regain my health. I have lost around 38kgs since surgery on 21.09.17. I have no aliments whatsoever. I'm free from my metabolic disorder. There's so much to talk about the great experience I have at the DHI. The follow up and post operative care is the best one can get. The team at DHI keeps a close tab on my health and assists me as and when it is needed. They go out and beyond to help me. I don't have enough words to thank them.
Patience to hear me out regarding the problem being faced by me and his grasp of what could be causing it.
Sooo pleased with my moms surgery and swift recovery now all thanks to Allah and Dr lakdawala. Highly recommend him! Also special mention to the team very detail driven and were extremely patient with my hundreds of questions. Also would like to mention dr Neha I’m pretty pleased with her diet and nutrition plan for my mom.
