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.
