‘In nothing do men more nearly approach the gods than in giving health to men’
Roman philosopher, Marcus Tullius Cicero

The nature of relationship between doctors and their patients underpins everything healthcare providers do, whether in general medicine, psychiatry or surgery. This relationship reflects the trust factor between healthcare providers and patients and therefore, it becomes an important element of medical practice.

In times, when the trust factor between doctors and patients is being questioned, Express Healthcare attempted to find that this trust still exists and to our amazement, several patients sent us good wishes for their doctors.

Here is a glimpse of some special messages …

Dr Amarnath Shaw, Consultant Cardiac Surgery, Paras Global Hospital, Darbhanga

I am thankful to my doctor as he not only performed Mitral Valve Replacement (MVR) procedure successfully, but also ensured that I receive the best comfort and overcome the traumatic surgical experience. Instead of a long cut on my chest, today I have tiny nicks on the right hand side of my chest, highlighting that even today there are doctors who understand and empathise with the pain of their patients

Dr Kanav Anand, Consultant Paediatric Nephrologist, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi

We feel very lucky to find Dr Kanav Anand in our tough span of life. We will never forget his contribution in our daughter’s life. We are very thankful to him for successfully treating our daughter, who was suffering from HSP Nephritis. He is a great doctor and in my opinion. Doctors like him are real gifts for our nation.

Dr Nripen Saikia, Senior Consultant Gastroenterology & Hepatology, PSRI Multi-specialty Hospital

Dr Suresh Rao, HOD Critical Care & Cardiac Anesthesia, Fortis Malar Hospital Chennai

It has been a year now since my successful heart transplant surgery was conducted. At the age of 79, it was challenging for me to undergo a heart transplant. But I was fortunate to have had my family and doctors who were specialists in transplant surgery. My doctor is soft spoken and a caring person. He was always been positive and helped me both physically and mentally and took personal care of me. We became friends and we still are

Dr Deep Goel, Director, Surgical Gastroenterology, Bariatric & Minimal Access Surgery, BLK Super Speciality Hospital

He was always there to answer my queries that I had. He explained to me every pros and cons of the surgery and never kept me in the dark about anything. Post operation, during my still in the hospital, Dr Goel came to see me everyday – sometimes two to three times in a day. I really appreciate this. Thank you, Dr Goel, for changing my life not only for me, but for my family as well
Sameer Malhotra

Dr Bina Vasan, Director & Head Reproductive Medicine, Manipal Fertility

My doctor helped me convert my distant dream to a reality. Dr. Bina Vasan has given me my bundle of joy and helped me in enjoying motherhood bliss. I was advised Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS), a procedure used to examine embryos for genetic/ chromosomal defects, before implantation was possible.She gave me  the courage and strength to opt for this technology and the result was marvelous

Dr Jayanthi S Thumsi, In Charge, Dept. of Breast Oncology at BGS Gleneagles Global Hospitals, Bengaluru

When I underwent mastectomy, she gave me lot of courage saying that you are young and can overcome this. It was third stage and I followed what she guided me to do including precautionary measures. I have developed confidence in her. She is an excellent doctor who builds an amazing relation with her patients. She will call you to know how you are coping. She will attend calls and spare the time to clear all your doubts.

Dr Subramania Iyer, Head (plastic surgery), Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi

Dr Pradeep V Mahajan, Regenerative Medicine Researcher, StemRx Bioscience Solutions

I was diagnosedwith Avascular necrosis 12 years back. It was Dr Pradeep Mahajan, who gave me a ray of hope towards better living.

Dr Mahajan has faith in his novel therapeutic approach for various health conditions and I trusted his expertise in the matter. He holds a special place in my life

Dr Cherian is kind, humble and friendly in nature. He treats his patients very well. I am so lucky to have received treatment under him. He helped in many ways. He supported me in way of mentally and financially. He motivated and encouraged me and I was ready to go for transplant. Whatever I will say about him is less because he deserves a lot. I cannot describe him in mere words…..

He is an excellent human being who could feel my pain and distress and helped me to overcome the fear of surgery.

I am thankful to Dr Reddy for her precise and timely diagnoses and perfect surgery. Her human and healing touch gave me a second life. Her confidence gave me confidence
Ravina Belani

Dr Praveen Kulkarni, DM – Cardiology Consultant – Cardiology (Invasive & Non-Invasive), Global Hospitals, Mumbai

He’s the one who perfectly understands the key part of getting the care which is best for me. With him, it feels at ease to discuss about my health concerns affecting my life and the things to do in order to improve it. The moment I feel that things aren’t getting better, I get in touch with the doctor because more than facing the doctor directly, improving the situation is more important. It’s your health and you solely have the right to find the best doctor for you. Sometimes, it’s very easy to forget how valuable good doctors are, until you go through an injury or illness

Dr Rooma Sinha, Associate Professor (AHERF), Senior Consultant Gynecologist, Minimal Access & Robotic Surgeon, Apollo Health City, Hyderabad

My doctor is special because I have full faith in her. Knowing her over the last 19 years–she has delivered my two children, did my family planning surgery and recently when diagnosed with heavy bleeding and fibroids, performed laparoscopic hysterectomy for me.

She is approachable and available 24×7 for any help. An ever-smiling Dr Sinha can make most of the problems disappear by the way she talks and counsels.

Dr Roopesh gave me hope to survive when I was diagnosed with stage III ovarian cancer. Six months ago, I underwent uterus removal and if not for Dr Roopesh, I would not have had the courage to undergo treatment for ovarian cancer. His empathetic, personalised and comprehensive care plan tailored just for me gave me the confidence to undergo the treatment suggested by him.

Dr Hemant Thacker was very strict about certain things when it comes to treatment. I did not realise it at that time, but I now understand why his sternness was important for the effectiveness of the treatment. He treated me with complete care and he is a fantastic doctor.
