I have under gone hernia surgery which was requiring large size of mesh to be placed. I enquired other hospitals and I was suggested to go for open surgery only considering the mesh size and complexity of the surgery. But it is the experience of the doctor and latest facilities available at GEM that such a major operation was carried out with laproscopy only and the recovery was very fast. Thanks to Dr. Harish kakkilaya.
GEM hospital is really GEM.. Doctors, Nurses & Staffs are excellent. They are treating the patients very softly and gentle manner. All the services are extremely good and maintaining very well. Doctors are patient friendly and responding very politely. Follow-ups are very good by Staffs, Nurses & Doctors. Even pre-surgery, the process has explained very well and clear all the doubts which was raised by me. Providing foods to patients with diet is too good for their health. Patients are getting discharged on time and not insisting to stay unnecessarily. Charges are normal. Overall, we were vey much satisfied.
