    I have no intention of badmouthing these doctors or the hospital! If you search about their reviews, they seem to have managed a good image! But I would advise agaist trusting these good reviews as my friend did that mistake and paid a very heavy price of losing his father! His father had some minor complications and late in the evening wanted a medical advise and took him to these doctors! These people are outright greedy ! They examined the patient and ordered some tests, scams and declared that he needed immediate surgery! My friend and his family could not think of alternatives quickly and accepted the surgery! Hospital staff were provided the detailed history of the patient but tgey did not care to even ask about the blood group of the patient , also ignored the fact that the patient was on blood thinner ! Needless to say, the patient died !
    Now we are finding so many lapses, based on the reports, he was not fit for surgery and also, surgery was n9t even necessary!
    I suspect, the only true reviews are the ones that are negative ones! All the positive reviews seem to be from the hospital staff pricing themselves!
    So, if you every happen to be in this situation, please either avoid this place at all cost or get a good opinion before visiting them .
    In human society such unscrupulous hospitals who run their business with no ethics should not exist!
    If this message can save one life from these scam artists it is worth it!

    oh yes I am in full agreement with Mr. Raghu, this place should be avoided at all costs, they are only after money.

    Normally all hospitals have some flaws! People do not go to government run hospitals because even though the doctors may be good, the cleanliness, supporting staff and their dedication sometimes are compromised ! But this hospital behaves like a death trap! They dont want to let people go even if tgey dont have any problems! I took my uncle to this place 7 months ago and they conducted so many tests and told that he needs a surgery IMMEDIATELY! We were all set to get him operated , but in the last minute, we got a second opinion and found that neither there was emergency nor the diognasis was accurate! They were pushing us so much that it us too risky to delay!
    Needless to say, it is over 6 months and he never underwent surgery And still alive !
    Now, seeing the above post, I guess it was not his time that he avoided this hospital in the nick of the time
    GREED RULES IN SUCH HOSPITALS, They don’t mind putting the people on life support if they can make Some money at others misery!! Their survival only depends on the sluggish and useless legal system !

    These private hospitals invest heavily in buying modern equipment and to recover the cost they order unnecessary scans and tests! But the doctors are highly incompetent to read those scans and results! These doctors are as scientific as a roadside astrologer! But they use these results to scare the patients and their family especially if the patient is weak! So The so called kidney specialist will say you have a kidney problem, the hernia specialist will say you need immediate surgery and all the other chotaa doctors will start creating panic and get your agreement signed so they can operate!It is such a tragedy that majority of these patients do not get to live any longer once these people treated them or permanently disabled!
    It is a shame that such hospitals thrive! No wonder our politicians go abroad to get their treatment! The fraud starts from diagnosis and end in cremation!

    Watch out for that Dr.Siddesh! If he says you need a surgery, opt for natural death! You might live your full term
