It was 29th December 2017 and we along with the whole world were waiting for the New Year to begin in 2 days.There was excitement in the air and suddenly my Mom in Law Mrs Surekha Kadam (71 years) staying in a remote village started complaining about severe headache. Me and her son, rushed her to a Hospital in Panvel. She was treated in ICU for at least 5 days but her BP didn’t fall below 220. We were waiting for the Nephrologists (stranger for us) who visited this hospital on Fridays as mentioned by the doctor there.
And then came the day when we met this ‘Life Saver”. At first sight- He looked over her reports and very confidently said- She requires dialysis as she is a CKD patient. We, the family members disagreed cause the patient never had any such symptoms earlier; but later accepted. He advised shifting her to Apollo in Navi Mumbai IF we wanted HIM to treat her. Genuinely he also gave us the option of other hospitals cause we were hesitant for Apollo due to distance and cost. But as said” Face is like a mirror” his confidence won over our dilemma and we shifted her to Apollo immediately.
Under Dr. Ravindra Nikaji’s treatment, my mom in law (Mrs Surekha Kadam) underwent the dialysis for the first time and recovered her BP levels and was discharged within 3 days. Over the time, my mom in law (being rigid) was unwilling to continue with the dialysis. She had also been hospitalized in emergency twice under unavoidable circumstances at 2.30 a.m, but due to his prompt response (Whatapp) he saved her . Further with the moral support, patience and kind counseling by Dr Nikalji, she is now surviving happily with the required dialysis twice a week.
Dr. Ravindra Nikalji, as the name itself says-He is that “Sun” who spreads his light of knowledge and confidence in the world and Indra who showers his patience, kindness, understanding and moral support to his patients and their family which makes him a good human .
Soon, it’s gonna be Dec 2019 now and I can see my mom in law turned 73 now) happily undergoing dialysis and also having her short trips of pilgrimage and attending weddings and meeting relatives often. ’She has got back her life” due to confident Dr Nikalji who believes “ Failure is Impossible”. We are grateful and fortunate to have found this God sent amazing Global Personality. He is in our prayers. I believe- Any Kidney problems- ONLY DR. RAVINDRA NIKALJI”@ Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai.
