What People Say About Us
Dear Sir/Madam, I am Sameer Kadam and would like to thank you for the care services provided to my father Mr. Nathuram Laxman Kadam. He was admitted to the hospital in May 2022 and looked after by Dr. Suraj Purushothaman. He has provided good care and guidance. I would also like to thank Dr. Umesh Gujjar for his excellent services in palliative care. We felt he was our family member and given good guidance and support. He was available odd hours, listening to patient relatives and guiding them even after passing Mr. Nathuram Kadam. I would also like to thank you all the care staff / support staff of Bhaktivendanta hospital for taking care of my father in his last days.Thank you all.On behalf of the Kadam Family.

I am really grateful for the right guidance from Dr. Vineeta Sharma & Dr. Umesh Gujjar for the palliative care that was given to my wife at Swami Shraddhanabd Hospital during the final month of her life. The treatment & spiritual care that was given to my wife is appreciable. Dr. Gujjar even helped me with all the paperwork from the Mahanagar Palika, something that would not have been possible for me to do alone. I am thankful to you for the same. Regards.
