He is the brains and a bindass doctor in the way he speak :), who can understand the problem pretty quickly.
Also he is good in what he do.
I had severe stomach pain and have done many tests and different clinics including sonogrphy done twice and could not tell what was really wrong, until i went to this gastrointrologist and found out it was infection and got treated for that. ****** *** ******** ********* *** ********** ** *** ****** highly recommended
I have taken my father to Dr. Pai as he was suffering from Constipation and one of my relative has suggested his name.
when we visited him, his assistant took all his history as Dr. Pai was not there. once he came he advised us to do some testing like endoscopy, colonoscopy which we had already done before and every thing was normal. but as per Dr. Pai he want himself to see personally and then only he can start the treatment. Although these were costly tests but we decided to go ahead and do the testing hoping to get good treatment.
We did the tests next day and Dr. Pai himself has done these tests. once the tests were done, the nurse after some time gave us the reports stating every thing is normal. Doctor didnt bothered to meet either patient or us to discuss his findings and next line of treatment and left the hospital. when we enquired about him the staff told that he has already left and he has not given any instructions for you. When we insisted to get his opinion he gave the message that tell them to continue their existing treatment.
We want Dr. Pai to reply to my comment as any patient comes to him hoping to get good treatment.
I would highly Recommend Dr Nitin. Within 2 days of treatment I felt relief from acid reflux. Most of symptoms are disappeared.
I was suffering with this problem since 2Jun, ** ***** ****** ***** ***** ****. Thanks Dr Nitin.
Dr Pai is a experienced and a very well known gastrologist . His diagnosis of any problem is accurate and his treatment is very effective .
This was my 1st visit and I would recommend all to visit him for any ailment related to stomach .
I was suffering from rare disease called achalasia cardia since last 20 years, I was not able to swallow food nor able to drink a glass of water this resulted in series of weight losses. Dr Nitin Pai have treated this disease by performing surgical procedure called POEM. It's rare surgical procedures but the experience and expertise of Dr Nitin Pai have made it very easy simple and painless for me. I was fully fit and able to work on 3rd day of surgery. Now I can eat food in much easier way in fact now realise that eating food and drinking water can be so easy
Thanks for treating 20 year old historic problem and making my life normal.
I had visited the doctor for my stomach ache.I have paid 800/- fee towards consultation.Dr ask me 2 to 3 questions n write down medicines.He has not ask anything related to my pain n all.I felt i had spoiled my visit n my money too.I had paid around 3500/-including medicine and Const fees for 2 minutes Dr intervention.He has not given hardly 1 to 2 minutes to me and leave to his operation ward.I have felt that why I have chosen this hospital n doctor ??will never go again n never suggest anyone.
He does not care about what happened to the patient, what is the history of patient. He was just asking to do some test which are most expensive (3600) *** *** ******* ** *** ******* ***** He does not want to know what happen before and what exactly happen and how do you feel which is normally any doctor asking. He was not care about patient health. I thing doctor does not have time to give for patient he was in hurry and not interested answered any queries asking by us also told us "just do what ever I said" first time I seen this kind of doctor. Will not recommend to any body
