"I’ve taken my mother for her access port removal surgery with hundreds of questions in mind which were answered not in words but by putting into actions not just by the Surgeon, Dr. Praveen K Reddy but also each and every staff member. I would like to thank each one of them here for all the support they’ve given to us during these tough times. Dr. Praveen is an amazing person who takes care of his patients as family members. Dr. Praveen’s assistant Mary is one such sweet lady supported us right from the admission through the billing and discharge. The IPD 4th floor team (Floor Manager: Karabi Duty Medical Officer: Dr. Sai Nursing Manager: Nikita) made sure of our comfortable stay in the Hospital which is very rare. Thank you so much team.
