Patient Testimonials


Pradeep Sridhar

Amazing doctor. He is thoroughly experienced in his domain. I took my mom for hernia and gall bladder surgery; she is obese and we were a bit scared on to proceed. The doctor really comforted us explaining the surgery in detail and also quoting examples of his past experience. He is really calm and has the knack of rightly dealing with his patients. It's been 2 weeks since the surgery is complete and my mother is recovering and able to walk now. Thanks a lot, Dr. Rengan. You are awesome. I highly recommend Dr. Rengan as he is the best in his domain.
