“I would just give this hospital 5 rating. We had come to Promed as an emergency for my father’s health. He had very good care from the nurses and Dr. Caroline the night we came in and we were asked to meet Dr Shyam interventional cardiologist the very next day. He was an absolute life saver for my dad. As we have met 2-3 cardiologist Regarding his health conditions all his lab reports would be normal but his symptoms never subsided. Dr. Shyam with at most care looked into all the reports and found variations in the TMT that was already done 6 months back. None of the doctors that we met before could not recognise it but he did a great job in finding out the variations.”
