Hi all I'm ShivKumar and I've been suffering form anal fistula since 4 months ,at start when i was feeling a little discomfort in anal area i consulted a local doctor and doctor told that it is an abscess so he started treating but it didn't work and that abscess got converted into fistula ,then i cosulted another specialist for the same and underwent a surgery but that too didn't work.so i started searching on internet for fistula treatment then suddenly Healing hands videos showed up in my YouTube feed ,i immediately went through all the testimonial videos and i became little confident about their treatment method.so i decided to visit there main branch in pune, and there Dr.Ashwin porwal suggested laser treatment ,but it was bit costly so we were worried about the money but then fortunately dr varsha told us about the healing hands foundation and the help that it provides for treatment ,i really want to thank Healing hands foundation for providing me a financial help for my treatment under charity.
Being a youth myself and completely cured by Dr. Porwal and his team. I'm happy to say that I was helped not only medically by him but financially also. Healing Hands Foundation stepped forward understanding my financial issue and helped me through. Really they care for people and make sure that patient suffers the least. I thank Dr. Varsha to be with me during the process.
I suggest people that not to neglect the diseases related to rectum like, piles, fissure fistula, constipation. If not treated properly on time it can severely damage your digestive system. So please take necessary actions.
My mother Lata Rana did operation of Hysterctomy here. She was helped from Healing Hands Foundation for her treatment.Thanks to Twinkle madam for her support during this whole time.She was suffering from loose motion and stomach ache from past 3 months.
Lockdown was there to worsen the symptoms more. Seriously she was so much pain even we could not see her that way.
Luckily our family Dr. Jabbar Shaikh informed us to do sonography. It was immediately seen that she required surgery.
This whole quarantine was there.We were scared but then Shaikh sir told that Healing Hands Foundation helps such patients financially and surgery is possible with advanced technology at Healing Hands Hospital with full care and precautions.
Then we came to Healing Hands and met Dr. Twinkle and Dr. Ashwin Porwal sir. He was so calm and composed, asked us all not to worry. We were relieved after clearing all our doubts.
Our expenses were also covered by Healing Hands Foundation.
Seriously it was not imaginable for us in this difficult time. These all people came like blessings in our life to help my mother.
I wish by best wishes to all of you.
It was really good experience at Healing Hands Hospital the staff ,doctors, caretakers, janitors, security evertone are so caring and polite.
It was different hospital world and totally different experience that any other experienced before.
Thanks a lot .
My wife Minakshi Manke had a clot of hernia for like last one year, we try homeopathy treatment and vanaspati aushadhi and everything. I though it will cure. But it never did. Then because of corona I had to wait for it to minimize. Now that it was increase it was urgent to treat it. Healing hands doctor Reshma do checkup and now she is treatment complete. I will recomend it to all
It is very good and comforting place for issues like piles. Since second delivery of my wife she was suffering from it. Tries many doctors but nothing worked. Now at last found cure at healing hands. Very kind and generous doctors and staff. Provide help from their charitable trust./foundation.
I'm very happy that now im free from painful cyst. It was removed by Dr. Porwal and team. Very nice staff guide you well
Very professional work. Available on mobile for any urgencies. Constant reminders and follow ups from support staffs and doctors on recovery updates.
I have both pros and cons in here..
The hospital is extremely neat and clean. The method of dealing with the patient is extremely good.
I liked the concept of a dedicated SPOC (Single Point of Contact).
When we first visited here, we had to wait a little even after having an appointment but all the wait was worthwhile.
Dr Ashwin Porwal, as everyone knows is one of the finest, explained the situation/condition very nicely and told me not to worry. He suggested for a laser surgery because of the severity. He gave me medicines too which were to be used for 15 days or till I decide for the surgery.
The hospital has a wonderful concept of payment for the surgery, with or without insurance. They will help you with everything.
I went through the surgery and it was so smooth. I thank each and every one member of the Healing Hands Clinic. The doctor also came in for a visit. He is so down to earth and good being.
I was allocated to Dr Twinkle as my the single point of contact.
She is really good and responsive. She consoled me all the time and replied to all the questions.
But I feel that her communications had not been proper...
1. Regarding the total cost, there were confusions around and we expected, as told, a different amount and received a different one.
Although, my company’s insurance got this covered and we had to give only 10k as a part of the difference amount. This was committed and has been a big relief.
my sincere thanks to HHC for that.
2. We had to keep on asking her what we need and what not, there were constant calls n msgs which she responded but I feel that it’s her responsibility to tell the patient everything considering that the patient knows nothing. I didn’t like the fact that she considered things to be understood on their own.
In normal circumstances that is a good approach but not while the patient is in for a surgery for the very first time and is already afraid. She needs to tell even the minute detail.
3. Just before the day of surgery, she said she will mail me everything, meaning what to eat n what to do. But there were just oral communications. And when I asked for a mail for my own safety and so that I can adhere to those and remember everything, she refused of having said anything regarding mail. That was odd.
I was asked to be with only one family member as per the rules. more than one is not allowed. I had to request a lot to get permission for more. I was given an ambulance for the journey that was again a relief. Got a wonderful room too but didn’t have adjustment for the person who will accompany for the night. But guess that is fine.
The doctor who conducted colon hydrotherapy was little agitated and high voiced initially but then I asked her not to be angry. She treated me well after that. She was nice then.
All the staffs and the complete hospital is highly recommended but am I little sad about the communications and behaviour at some points.
My overall experience is very good.
