My dad whom I love more than my life ❤️
In the month of Aug started suffering from breathlessness obviously in the covid times multiple thoughts started making way to my head.. should we get him tested and all But since that was the only symptom we dint go for it, consulted a cardiologist and he suggested us to also check with a nephrologist of what could be the reason, Since my dad was already taking treatment from Dr. Burkhe we thought its best to see him.. so we got the blood reports done and went off to see him.. Creatin level—11.7, the pathologist was like looks like this patient is on dialysis and i am like no ways, not knowing what I was in denial off was something he would actually need to be on... Dads condition was not that great and kept on deteriorating he would always have extreme weakness and fatigue, Upon reaching Dr. Burkhe’s clinic, he checked the reports and suggested an immidiate hospital admission followed with dialysis( which he had already suggested could be needed for my dad in future when he visited him in Jan) he explained us so well about what could happen if we dint start treatment asap, since his pottasium level had reached peak and his heart could collapse anytime, nightmare come true. I was still strong from outside but broken from within, dint expect him out of all to go through this..couldnt believe within 30 mins Dr. Burkhe was at the hospital, cathetra was fitted, he was back home and healthy within 3 days ,My dads been suggested dialysis 3rice a week, I accompany him at all times, i love him a little too much to let him be alone😊
We also got the Fistula operation done within a months time...
3 months we’ev come across many complications but all my worries come to rest when I pick my phone drop in a message to Dr Burkhe and i have a reply within seconds beat that..he is available all times on SMS ONLY. I look forward to my monthly visits and banter with him. My dads recovered pretty well...eat wells.. drives, rides does all the household chores, groceries, shopping, He is retired but is an ace Insurance advisor and has his bussiness full fledged, all this is possible today due to that one timely visit advice and suggestions of Dr Burkhe... I can also proudly say this, my dads off any MEDICATION AND HAS NO DIET RESTRICTIONS, we get to eat all cuisines together 😄
Special mention- Dr Burkhe has also got us alligned with the best dialysis techicians and we couldn’t get anyone better than them..
A big thank you..
To me, you’re a magician, a great physician, a special gift from God. Thank you so much for all your contribution and efforts that you do to keep us well.
Your experience and excellence played a big role in boosting up my confidence.
Doctor gave detailed explanation of the cause and appropriate advise was given. Detailed treatment and tests were specified which helped me alot in the treatment.
I am Manoj Tiwari,
During the corona virus lockdown in Amonth of May 2020. My father Gajendra Tiwari got fever and cough on testing his Creatinine was 12 Dr Sandip Bhurke arranged bed in Andheri (W) hospital with great efforts (since all beds were full in most of hospitals which we had already contacted).
Doctor Bhurke inserted dialysis catheter in the right side of neck and life saving dialysis was done for six times. CT scan chest was pneumonia. COVID-19 came Negative.
Ther after dialysis s stopped slowly my father's creatinine has reduced to 2. Supportive medicines has been continued by Dr Bhurke in O.P.D at Prabhakar Bhurke Clinic.
My father Mr. Sripad Bhattacharya was checked by Dr. Bhurke in 2010. My father had a rise in creatinine (2) and electrolyte disturbance due to urine medicine called as diaretics. Within a short time of talking to my father, Dr. Bhurke noticed less emotions on the face of my father. Further physical examination by Dr. Bhurke (which included walking straight) he came to an instantaneous diagnosis of a brain problem called as Parkinson’s disease.
For the electrolyte problem Dr. Bhurke stopped the urine drug diaretic and advised increased salt intake. It really helped my father. Initially our family was surprised at the brain diagnosis but this was confirmed by brain doctors, neurologists. Later on the brain problem was corrected and my father is on regular brain medicines.
Now there is a slow age related rise in creatinine (to 4). Dr. Bhurke has told us not to worry as the slow rise is going to happen and there is no need of urgent dialysis.
Dr. Bhurke is still a topic of our family discussion, how a kidney doctor diagnosing a brain problem within minutes. It’s a miracle for us. It was a pleasure meeting you again for a general check up of my father.
In 2013, I underwent emergency cesarean section for delivery of my baby girl. During that time I developed severe intestine complication called as paralytic ileus. After trial of medicines, I was subject to major surgery to correct the intestine problem. I also developed pressure on my kidney called as ARF/AKI. My creatine was 3. Dr. Bhurke treated me & my kidney became fully normal. I was put on warfarin for blood cloth in my left shoulder. I am on regular follow up with Dr. Bhurke who saved my life.
I am being treated by doctor sandeep burkhe since the past year and half he has been very honest about his opinions and treats me very nicely explains me what i should eat and what exactly is happening inside me i am finally fit now the best part about doctor burkhe is he has a practical experience about kidneys of nearly 18years now, he has been more like a family more like a elder brother to me, he is just one doctor whom i say... SEE YOU AGAIN bcoz i learn so much from him.. Thank you so muc dr. Sandeep Burkhe for treating me so well
My father Chittaranjan Bhaskar under went Kidney Bropsy in Feb'2016 but the biopsy report showed non-recoverable chronic changes. Creatinine in Feb'2016 was 5. In Sept'2016 we met Dr. Bhurke . Initially my father was having fear of dialysis and was on extreme strict diet. Dr. Bhurke calmed down my father by detailed explanation and liberalised his diet. Dr. Bhurke explained that good quality protein like fish donot harm the kidneys and fish should be taken in limited quantities . After eating fish , being a Bengoli , My father is now happy and his appetite is normal. Dr. Bhurke has predicted future need of dialysis , AV Fistula and Kidney Transplant for my father , Our family is now tension free because of Dr. Bhurke's support.
My wife Mrs.Seema Popale was admitted in Yashoda Hospital for delivery. Post delivery , she had got serious problem in both Kidneys. We shifted her in Thunga Hospital Mira raod. Dr. Bhurke treated my wife in ICU. She had both kidneys shut down after delivery of baby with very high creatinine 11. Dr . Bhurke gave immediate 'Blood plasma Pheresis'.
Dr. Bhurke also did needle test of Kidney i.e KIDNEY BIOPSY. This report should diases of Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome. After this Dr.Bhurke Sir gave special treatment of Steroid for three months. Dialysis stopped after one month and after 6 month creatinine came down to normal. Now my wife is fully normal and is in good health condition. I am taking my wife to Dr. Bhurke Sir for regular kidney check up after every three months. Dr. Bhurke Sir had save my wife's life. For me, Dr.Bhurke is a another side of God.
Thank you so much Sir......
I was checked by Dr Bhurke in 2012 for abnormal urine report. Persistence of abnormality in 2013 led to kidney biopsy which showed FSGS (focal segmental glomerulas sclerosis). Dr Bhurke started steroids but there were multiple side effects which I couldn't tolerate and hence the dose was lessened and special drug ************ was started.
There was no improvement in kidney but no deterioration either and hence second biopsy was done in Jan 2016. This showed that the kidney is still possible to recover and hence same treatment continues.
I meet him almost once every month. He explains every thing to the patient and the notes are quite detailed.
I am Sandesh Nagare working in South America, Argentina. My father Mr. Sukhdeo Nagare had creatinine 9.0 in 2013. Dr. Bhurke started hemodialysis for my father; further testing revealed shrunken kidneys. Dr. Bhurke counsulled our family that regular dialysis will be required for life long. Dialysis machine called A.V fistula was inserted on left hand by minor surgery. My father since then is on 3 per week dialysis.
Even though I am in South America, I regularly interacts with Dr. Bhurke regarding my father health. My father does regular once a month blood report & follows up with Mr. Bhurke in his OPD.
