A Glimpse Into The World Of Colorectal Surgery
Your health is our priority
I had a piles operation one year back. I was feeling weird during bowl moment for few days now. So I was scared it has come back. I visited the doctor and he examined and said there is nothing wrong and he did not even give any medicine. I have seen doctors who generally give pills even if there is no issues. He was friendly and also explained how it happens what to eat to avoid in future. Very good experience.
One stop for colorectal check-up. I was having problem for more than 6 months and came here as last resort, Dr Venkatesh gave in-depth advice for surgery. Understanding and patient friendly approach. After surgery feeling much better and pleased to say he is the best doctor in this field.
Dr Venkatesh was extremely patient and listened to all the concerns I had. The surgery I had was a smooth process and I am looking forward to enjoy the benefits. He was also kind enough to reduce the cost of surgery after I requested for it. His staff Ms Madhakani and Ms Hema were also efficient and kind in handling patients.
