Nearly 17 years ago I met Dr.Pushkar for the very first time as my Dad was being treated by him. Accompanying my parents on every follow-up, my mom casually mentioned the pain I had on the left side of my face and head which left me exhausted and weak occasionally. I still remember numerous visits to multiple doctors suggesting n number of treatments unfortunately having no effect, Dr Pushkar gently heard her out and asked me a couple of questions and suggested just one homeopathic medicine which literally costed me Rs 12 only and never have I ever encountered the pain and agony till date. That casual 15 minutes of interaction left a huge impression on me as I could get back to normal without worrying about the sudden pain attacks that had terrorized me for quite some time. Cut to 17 years later, on one of my visits to my dentist, I was introduced to the fact that I have horizontal third molars and they would need to be extracted someday by a surgeon. On asking advice from my dentist I was told it’s a critical surgery as the angle at which my teeth are would make it more difficult and rather complicated. Worried again, I only had one doctor in my mind whom I wanted consult and that was Dr Pushkar, I had heard the mention of Dr Pushkar from a few of my acquaintances pursuing Dental studies, so I was aware he is still in Pune. I got in touch with him via a simple text message and the next minute I had all the details on where and when I could visit him, would also like to mention that it was an off day and he was supposed to be at the hospital only for a visit but he still entertained my request and agreed to meet me which amazed me a lot. On the day of appointment, the moment I entered the doors to the office, I felt welcomed, cared for, and completely at ease he looked at the issue and advised an X-ray which took around an hour and a half to get done but he patiently waited at the hospital for me to get back again to mention even though it was an off day. In the next 15 mins he advised me on the surgical process in a very personalized way without a hint of criticality just like a patient would like to hear it. It was his word and I was ready for the surgery in the next three days he personally helped me with getting all the tests done for the report as it was critical due to the current Covid rush. At any point I felt the need to ask him something I would message him and would get the reply instantly I mean wow where do I find such crisp professionalism, I felt cared for, and completely at ease. Dr. Pushkar has gone above and beyond to be sure that my wellness has been made first priority also considering I had to travel out soon, the surgery was scheduled aptly to ensure I face no further issues down the line. I was so relaxed on the day of surgery knowing I was in safe hands. Additionally, he also helped me with my insurance issues multiple times never have a come across anyone who is so gentle while dealing with patients. Doc you are amazing! Needless to say, you have been so compassionate and empathetic and so exceptional to talk to. Hands down the best doctor that I have met so far. To sum it up all I can say is if you have any issue just talk to Dr Pushkar once and leave the worries to him nothing can ever go wrong if you are being treated by him.
Apologies for such a long testimonial but the association has been so long that this is just and abstract out of all I would like to say about Dr Pushkar.
