Testimonials - Obesity Surgery

17 October, 2015

It has always been said that God helps his people with regard to their health problems through the hands of doctors. I can vouch for that statement.

Dr. Padmakumar has been a life-saver for me. On August 30, 2015, when I met him for the first time, I was weighing 186 kg and was struggling big time. He gave me complete awareness of my problems and the solutions. I could see the glow in his face and just believed his words. I got the surgery done on September 5, 2015, and he took care of me like his on kin.

Today, after 40 days, I weigh 149 kgs - shed 37 kgs.

Need to write more? In addition to being a skilled doctor, his care, love, and concern for patients has been tremendous. Dear doctor, all I can say is "Thank you so much"

All I can say is that I am grateful to God that I came here. Ever since the first meeting with Dr. Padmakumar, I have seen a great improvement not just in my weight, but also my life. After 9 months since surgery, I have lost 80 kg as well as my blood pressure has become normal. More than the operation and the related activities, doctor's positive and realistic attitude made a great impact on the outlook of life. God bless Dr. Padmakumar and his wonderful team.
