What Our Patients Are Saying
Dr. Bhamidi treated my aneurysm when it nearly burst last year. He was very patient with my wife and I in the emergency room when we asked a million questions and ensured we were well informed and looked after. His bedside manner was lovely and the surgery and recovery went exceptionally well. I now have a new lease on life. A truly wonderful surgeon.
I was admitted with a severe infection in my foot which literally happened overnight because of my diabetes. I was admitted under a medical doctor but Venu came to see me and immediately recognised how serious things were and decided to operate straight away. I ended up staying in hospital for several weeks and Venu was with me every step of the way. I would’nt have a leg today if it wasn’t for him. I cannot express my gratitude enough.
