Doctor’s office Address:


Comments about doctor
Hi I am Uma, I am 53 years old.  I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis when i was 32 years old.I live in Hyderabad India. My doctors are Dr Nageswar Reddy and Dr Rupa Banerjee.Nageswar Reddy is the founder and head of the Asian institute of gastroenterology. He is a very renowned doctor and a good one.He diagnosed my condition being ulcerative colitis in the first instance itself after a colonoscopy.This was 21 years ago.But he suggested surgery i.e colectomy and referred me to a surgeon 21 years ago but the surgeon
asked me to manage my condition.( He told me this is not cancer so you can manage your condition) and i have been doing just that.

The Asian institute of gastroenterology is huge with several gastroenterologists. Colonoscopies, endoscopies, surgeries and what not.Nageswar Reddy is a very busy busy man now.During my last visit in 2009 oct i had an appointment for 6pm in the evening but he could see me at 12am(midnight) only.But i was told that he will see all the patients waiting for him and only then will he go home. He then asked me see doctor Rupa of the same institute as she specializes only in crohns and colitis.

Dr Rupa is a good doctor too.On any given day day we have to wait for 2 hours before we see her.Its normally on a first come first served basis. She chalks out a plan for treating and discusses this with us.I think it is usually like his. First mesacol (asacol) ,if that does not work,Mesacol and prednisone,if that fails then azoran(imuran),if that fails then remicade, and the last option is of course surgery. This is my opinion i.e what i gathered, may not be correct.

You will be amazed at the number of Crohn’s and Colitis patients coming to see her every day and most of them are very young in their early 20’s and teens.I generally chat with them while waiting and i found that mostly all of them had visited a foreign country before a trigger. Mostly the United States. May not be correct again but.

Most people here don’t have medical insurance. We pay ourselves.For a visit to this doctor we have to set a side a whole day.But we can go whenever we want there is no need for an appointment.Emergency cases will be attended immediately.So that’s all i have to say.Hope you guy guys got a fair picture of how things work here.

    As a patient i went to asian institute and found it to be very commercial.Dr Reddy always gives surgical advice to patient of crohns therebye proving his poor knowledge about crohns and very commercisl.Dr R banerjee is even worse because she is yet to know more about crohns its medication not a properly trained G I to treat crohns lacks basic knowledge.Never go to AIG hyderabad to treat crohns becos I suffered a lot being treated by such inexperinced doctor there.So for god sake never try to go AIG hyd for crohns treatment.

        I suggest you see Dr. Avnish Kumar Seth in Delhi, Dwarka Sector – 6, Behind DDA Market. Hyderabad docs are not trust worthy as far as my experience goes. Dr. Avnish is a very experienced and well known doctor for Gastro and Liver

        You can call me for location guidance if you want 9000203665

      • abhijeet singh December 15, 2013 at 7:45 am #

        I see Dr. R Kochhar of PGI, Chandigarh.
        he is among 3 doctors who head colitis and crohns foundation, India.

        very good doctor who specializes in IBD.
        and ofcourse PGI is govt medical hospital so there are ques and u have to wait long and also you dont get to see him directly. First junior resident see you and then they refer to Dr. Kochhar, who is also professor in PGI itself.

        the other two docs are Ajit sood and Ajay kumar.
        below is the link for the crohns colitis foundation india

        whether its UC or Crohns, he is the best doc i have seen till date. i have had crohns for 12 yrs and that too since i was 11 year old.

    Plz reply ….

  4. uma April 24, 2012 at 7:06 pm #

    The doctor’s at asian always suggest surgery. In fact Dr Rupa told me that you are neither too young nor too old and so the right candidate for surgery.Of course i brushed her off.So essentially we have to manage well with what works for us. Diet is also very important.The medications are similar everywhere which i have found out after reading all the stories here.So i dont know what a good doctor can do.No one suggests diet or probiotics. So we have to do what works for us.Good luck all Hyderabad UCers.

  6. jag July 23, 2012 at 8:45 pm #


    Thank you for taking time and writing this note about your experience. I feel as if I spoke to you in person about my problem through this forum. I am one of those young guns travelled to US and got UC not sure what made you say that in your note :) I was diagnosed last year and unfortunately, Lialda, 6 MP gave me pancreatitis so I cant take them anymore. I take prednisone which is not a safe drug, I try not to take it unless I got bloody stool cycle (which I guess is every 4 month for me). It goes on for 1 month with lot of bowel movements and blood. Every time (every cycle it is getting worst). My doc says try remicade , I am afraid as that has huge side effects. I am 30 years old and I often think will I make to ur age?? if this continues? even if I do can I handle one more bloody cycle??? DOnt have answer for that. I decided to try ayurvedic and homeopathic medicine and see if that works. For a 2 months it did work like charm specially homeopathic medicine did show good results but not sure how and wht triggered the cycle and back to square :) I am looking forward to the peace after the storm which will last for another 3 to 4 months and I can start enjoying my life again….


  7. uma July 24, 2012 at 7:02 pm #

    Hi Jag, of course you will make it to my age and longer. Must be positive i know how it feels when you are in a flare. First do what it takes to get the flare under control and then maintain the remission with proper diet and a good probiotic. You must try probiotics. Doctors never suggest that i dont know why. You will learn what works for you and learn to manage colitis.Alcohol is big NO. Dont touch it. Try to eat stuff with less fibre so that it does not irritate the colon. Homeopathy did not work for me. I tried it too. Where do you live? Which country? I think tibetan medicine works for some.If you are in India you could try that. Good luck. There is always light at the end of the tunnel. Hang on lot of research is going on. I am sure a cure is round the corner. My colitis started in1991.Things have improved so much since then that i cant believe it.When my doctor suggested surgery soon after diagnosing, i did go to the surgeon. But my uncle dissuaded me saying the longer you wait, more new treatments will emerge. So here i am. Gook luck.

    • jag July 25, 2012 at 8:07 am #

      Thank you Uma, your words gave hope and a smile :)
      You are correct when I am flared up that is worst and everything (hope, emotions, & life) just seem to go down the toilet with the poop. I came across SCD and Probotics but my Doc never mentioned it, he once or twice said eat lot of curd which did help at times. I have decided to control my UC with strict diet and see if that works, we can decide what we want to but it works or not is not in our hand :) I hope it does. Prednisone, is increasing my sugar and it was VERY high last week, my doc and I both were shocked and yesterday I read somewhere that prednisone can do that. I have my 2nd colonoscopy today, not sure what to hope for? I guess I am just going to wait for the results and show it to multiple docs to take 2 opinion. I am thinking of following the book “Breaking the Vicious cycle”,
      hope that will make little difference, also will surely try probotics, should I ask my doc about this? or is this something I can do on my own?.
      BTW, I am in US and I loved when you said, longer I wait the better treatment will emerge. I really hope so, for all of us.
      Thanks for your post and response!!!

    Turmeric is very good in coditions like Ulcerative Colitis(I am taking it and also a sufferer with UC since 2005 and it is very good.But it will take some time may be in years beofre you can taper out allopathy)
    Forgiving other and take it easy are important.Venting out emptions is also important.

    I just want to know from all you posted here..whether this (Crohns Or colitis) happened after a short stay in USA???
    Please reply..

    These days I am seeing lot of folks from India are suffereing with UC/crohns.I saw posts where people who did not even go out of india to a foreign land are suffering…Am I right in this?
    Please reply..

    ALSO another important question..May I know if anyone got their condition(UC/crohns) Improved or cured after coming back from US and settled in india and start living in india ??

    please reply..I am confued if i need to return to india.(I came to usa in 2000.In 2005 i got UC just after a holiday visit to chennai and since suffering..)

    Please reply.

    Iam also having the same problem can anyone suggest me a good doctor in Bangalore??

  11. Jag December 11, 2012 at 7:55 am #

    Hey guys,

    I avoiding wheat and rice it helps a lot, problem with UC is u will not the progress or worsting without colonoscopy.
    Additionally anything containing starch, sugar is also problamtic. It’s very difficult to go on this diet being an Indian but its better than shitting all the time. Keep an eye on your HB levels as it drops low and recovers slowly!!

    • Kumar November 17, 2013 at 10:27 pm #

      Hi Jag,
      I have diagnosed with crohns from july 2013 .Initially i am on Budez cr and Pentasa for 2 months. Now my doctor changed the dose to Prednisolone. I have seen the side effects of prednisolone on internet.

      I want to start the SCD diet ( even though it is tough for Indian).I have gone through the book Breaking the Vicious cycle. I need help regarding this. Please mail me at

    Thanks for Bad Treatment!!!
    We are patients of Dr. D. Nageshwar Reddy science 2000, I came for my wife treatment on 22/12/2012 for hemorrhoid (piles) treatment, consult Dr.Rupa Banerjee (reason of selection: lady Dr.) After meeting a minute, she suggest Diagnosis Sigmodoscopy, CBP, T3, T4 & TSH, we spend total time on 22/12/2012 11am to 9PM, we came with reports on Monday 24/12/2012 she came 3 hours late, sorry not late it may delay, we have shown patient reports she didn’t even saw the first report Sigmodoscopy properly , she didn’t turn the pages of CBP & Thyroid profile, I could not understand why she suggest diagnosis, she was not talking properly with patient within a minute we were out form the cabin, we asked for diet suggestion, she simply sendt us to dietician. It is not a good sign of Dr. D. Nageshwar Reddy hospital. It is very very neglectful treatment of Asia Institute of Gastroenterology. I think this institute fully commercial. Thanks for bad treatment.

  13. SB January 6, 2013 at 8:23 pm #

    I took my relation suffering from Crohns to AIG and thanks to Dr Rupa’s treatment, he has recovered with no symptoms at present. Ofcource the Doctor mentioned that Crohns is a chronic disease and there is a possibility of recurrence. I found the Center very supportive and affordable for all.

  14. RAMAKOTAIAH.B January 18, 2013 at 9:27 am #

    My daughter is for the past three months with vommitting what ever she eats or drinks. one doctor called it as GERD and suggested for fundupllication. Shifted to AIG, Hyderabad for second opinion. Again endoscopy, impedance ph tests, barium swallow test( after two attempts of failure for drinking barium liquid) carried out. Finally it was diagnosed as non acidic refulx with psychiatric problem. Till now no cure. She is not able to eat, drink. we are feeding her every one hour within minutes she is vomitting. She lost 10 kgs in two months. till now four endoscopies are carried out different gastroentrologist with different results. One endoscopy normal, second endoscopy at AGI, Hyd normal, Third at Kakinada hiatus hernia, fourth at again AGI, Hyd Paltuous GE junction. I am confused.She is not able to eat or drink. If any body reads kindly advise or if any gastroentrologist reads, kindly help me.

      Hi Ramakotiah,

      Dr. Ravindarnath from Global Hospitals, lakdi ka pul, hyderabad is a very good Gastroentrologist. Try consulting him.

    • Abhisek February 28, 2013 at 9:40 am #

      Dear, yes i can understand. if you live in hyderabad then once you can meet Dr.D.Chandrasekhar Reddy @ Yashoda, somajiguda. But my suggestion for you will be either go cmc vellore, dr.joseph/dr.ramakrishna or Apollo chennai, dr.r.ravi for proper evaluation.

    • Ashok October 20, 2013 at 8:53 pm #

      I too suggest cmc vellore with my own experience.

  15. Abhisek February 28, 2013 at 9:34 am #

    • Sunil March 1, 2013 at 7:54 am #

        Hi sunil ihope you go to cmc vellore its one of the best in india

  16. Abhisek March 22, 2013 at 7:46 am #

    Dear Sunil,

    am talking about asian institute of gastroenterology. if you want to survive by physically,mentally as well as financially pls do not go there. If you want to move from nepal for your treatment then must go to cmc vellore. going to aig will be a big risk for everyone who are suffering physically.

    Now it’s up to you buddy.

  17. Madhu April 23, 2013 at 9:49 am #

    good alternative for gastroenterology and liver problems would be cygnus gastroenterology institute at miyapur especially if someone wants special care without much of waiting

    • Abhisek May 13, 2013 at 9:15 am #

      you can go @ yashoda somajiguda & meet dr. d.chandrasekhar reddy. he is a very good doctor of gastroenterology depat. he is not a money sucker like those busturds of asian inst of gastro.

  18. Saloni June 1, 2013 at 4:24 am #


    My uncle is suffering from Cirrhosis.
    People have suggested me that we should
    consult Dr. Reddy at AIG. But reading at
    the reviews i have become skeptical.
    I have also found one more Gastroenterologist,
    Dr.Dr. R.V. Raghavendra Rao at Sai Vani Super Speciality
    We are looking for treatment in Delhi or Hyderabad.
    If anybody could help us to decide.


    • Abhisek June 2, 2013 at 6:41 am #

      Hi Saloni,

      You can meet Dr.D.Chandrasekhar Reddy of Yashoda, somajiguda. And if planning to visit delhi then must go to AIIMS other wise Apollo Delhi.

    • Rashed July 22, 2013 at 4:59 am #

      Hi Saloni
      Abhishek says right you just go to yashoda, somajiguda Dr Chandrasheker Or Delhi Apollo.

      I heard they are specialist.

I had been diagnosed of Crohn’s disease of Small Intestine in 2009 at CMCH Vellore and done resection of my Small Intestine for 8 cms ( as the Video Capsule was stuck in the intestine at the time of Capsule Endoscopy test) and stricturoplasty of some areas in small intestine. After surgery Dr. B.S. Ramakrishna Sir has prescribed me Pentasa 500 mg ( Mesalizine Prolonged release tablets) for 1 year and said you will be OK and not need further medicine.

    But friends from last 20 days I have been feeling of discomfort in digestion, stomach pain, flatulence ,cramping, and the condition got so worst that I need to Hospitalized myself and been on Saline water for three days without having a drop of water through mouth. After three days Dr. here in Siliguri, west Bengal advise me to be on liquid diet only and said that my Crohn’s disease is might aggravate again and I need to go to visit good gastro doctor.

    Friends Plz Plz suggest me some good Gastro Doctors and institute so that I can go there and further do my check up. also plz suggest should I again visit CMCH, Vellore as Dr. BS Ramakrishna is retired .

    Plz suggest on urgent basis. Your valuable suggestion can help me to save my life.

    • Abhisek June 2, 2013 at 6:58 am #

      Dear Bittu,

      Don’t do that mistake. What you are facing past few days it’s normal thing. Do not go to Asian Inst of Gastro, Hyderabad. you must go to CMC vellore again & meet Dr. A.J.Joseph of gastro dept if presently your pocket permit. Otherwise come to kolkata & meet Dr.Sanjoy Mondal of Medical College calcutta for proper & further evaluation. If you are planning to come down @ kolkata then i can give you his contact number also.

  20. tushar panchanan June 18, 2013 at 1:53 am #

    how can I contact with dr. reddy sir

  21. Abhisek June 18, 2013 at 4:53 am #

    Dear Tushar, after seeing all these bull shits about that inst you still want to go there? strange. Once again i am telling you not to go there for treatment, it’s a bull shit.

    still you want to go, then go directly there, you will be seen one of jr. doctor, were advised for colonoscopy & other. after that you may get to see dr.reddy by waiting there since morning upto mid night. there is no such appointment process to see dr.reddy properly.

    But still i am not going to suggest any one who is already suffering to go there for double his/her suffer.

    all the best.

    sunny, you didn’t mention where r you from? though i do not suggest you for aig, hyderabad. It’s a bull shit inst. If planning to go out side then must go to cmc vellore with prior appoint with senior doc. check out their web site & mail all your docs to their id otherwise get an appoint & go there for proper evaluation.

  24. Avinash tangudu June 28, 2013 at 8:24 pm #

    Please don’t go to Asian institute of gastro enterology. I have just been there once and they charged me 7,000 rupees. This is full commercial. And you won’t be seeing the big doctors as you wish to go. I feel pity for all those who go there. I have seen every one paying more than 5,000 rupees as minimum. I asked them that I wanna see nageswar reddy, but they took me to a; who don’t know anything. On the other hand, it is not well organised, and I am sure that people who go there for the first time will never go there at all. To sum up, you won’t get the treatment you want for the money you have paid. My best advise is to see a doctor who can talk to you atleast a minute. I have waited whole day to see a doctor. :-( :-( very bad experience of mine.

        • pujitha July 14, 2013 at 7:13 am #

          i was on very high dose of predmet and gradually came down to 2mg per day with one pentasa tablet per day with some pro biotics and calcium supplements.

    sunita, first get out your mom from getwel siliguri to kolkata immediately. Do contact with Dr.Sanjoy Kr. Chatterjee or Dr. Sanjoy Kr. Mondal( Prof of Internal medicine @ Medical college). Other wise you can meet Dr.Avijit Chowdhury, prof of gastro medicine @ sskm. you can meet him also in nightangle hospital, kolkata. If planning to go outside of bengal then must go to cmc vellore. It is a curable dissease, mind it.

  30. Mike September 2, 2013 at 8:19 am #

    I am a foreigner and I read a lot of negative comments on AIG, what about Dr Reddy? I am a potential patient at AIG for Pre-Oral Endoscopic myotomy (poem) for Achalasia. I am worried with all these negative comments. Should I proceed or should I look for alternatives? I am insisting on Dr Reddy to perform the myotomy surgery.

    What about Global hospital? Dr Revindren – the first to perform POEM in India?

  31. Abhisek September 2, 2013 at 10:05 pm #

    No mike, you should not proceed to AIG if you want to survive by health and money as well. In hyderabad you can contact Dr. d.Chandrasekhar Reddy of somajiguda, yashoda hosp. I do not have idea of Dr.Revindren.


    • Mike September 3, 2013 at 12:00 am #

      Mine is a gastroenterology case and need a treatment called Per Oral Endoscopy Myotomy (POEM) for achalasis. AIG offer such treatment. I checked Yashoda website and there is no mention of such treatment. This treatment is pioneered by a japanese doctor, Dr H Inoue who train AIG in early 2012.

      For Global Hospital, there is a doctor DR Amit Maydeo who has done POEM for achalasia cases.

      Is there nothing good at AIG? How can they survive if they are good for nothing? Pls advise

  32. Abhisek September 3, 2013 at 7:14 am #

    Buddy I can not tell you how can they survive. I felt it was my duty to aware people who needs proper treatment & i believe aig is not offering up to the mark treatment. Why you are still stick in hyderabad for treatment, in india there is AIMS Delhi, CMC Vellore also. Get out of hyd & go there, i suggest. All the best.

  34. Raghavendra K Dilli September 9, 2013 at 12:40 am #

    Dr. Satyanarayana Gastroenterologist [Care Hospital] Visakhapatnam- Andhrapradesh.. The best doctor I have ever seen. He listens your prob very carefully and very specifically. The best part is he not a money minded. Also the hospital is very reasonable and well equipped. For foreign patients the cost of living in and around the city is very very low comparatively. Dr Satyanarayana, you can blindly believe and go to him. Good knowledge and strong hold on the subject. Simple personality and always energetic. I had a very very good experience with this Dr as well as with Care Hospital.

    Hi Guys,

    I saw all above comments and giving my experience and suggestion.

    I am also crohn’s patient from last 15 years. I live in Hyderabad visited so many big hospitals and wated 2 years of my time, but no use nothing happened. In some hospital after diagnose they confirmed as TB and given medicine for 1 year. After that they diagnosed and told it is chron’s both will have same symptoms so we confused.

    Lastly I went to CMC Vellore now living happily with out any problems. Here you will get accurate treatment.

    “This disease in not curable one just we have to take regular medicine and control.”


    • Irshad November 21, 2013 at 8:00 am #

      Hi Ashok

      Could you please share the diet plan and the medicine which you were given to treatment of Crohns’. It would be helpful for us as we can share the details with our doctors.

  38. Sunny October 18, 2013 at 5:39 am #

    Hello Ashok,
    This is Sunny from Hyderabad,actually my case is similar to yours,because initially i was suffering with tb after 1 year they told me that my tuberculosis got cured but my stomach pain is still continuing then they confirmed that i am suffering with crohns disease .so can u tell me the prescription you are following and from how long you are taking medicine………….

    Thanks in advance………………………..

    • Ashok November 22, 2013 at 9:43 pm #

      Hi @sunny @Irshad,

      From last 14 years I am taking medicine. 12 years I have taken Mesacol 500mg . Intially daily 8 tablets per day after that decreased dose to 6 per day. After that changed medicine to Pentasa 500mg daily 6 from last two years.

      If come to diet, initially they said no restrictions and have to take more of proteins food. Now also I am continuing same. No restrictions. Some of heat items will effect for healthy people but I am not getting any problem.

    I have been there for my mother. She went there for treatment of tumor in gallbladder. Once she started visiting this hospital, her condition became worse. Just with in two weeks she became very sick and finally I lost my mother. They sent her to ICU, but never said much about her condition to us. We could only talk to the so called doctors( actually they are technicians) for about 2 minutes in the morning and evening. Only one person could visit her personally for few minutes. Also, the doctors who speak with us are junior doctors who are reckless in answering our questions and just seem to be proud to be doctors and show off their pride in it. They dont have also knowledge about medical science so they preferred spiritual talk to the patient party.They never seemed to be caring about the patients they are treating and doesn’t look to have much experience either. Also, the doctors who speak with us keep changing. We didn’t understand who was treating my mother exactly. I am sure it was not those who spoke with us. The hospital seems to be seriously into business to make huge profits and not at all interested in saving lives .That hospital is like a death cell and I would recommend not to even step into that hospital ever if you want to live.

    Hey guys,

    Has anyone (UC’ers) have tried FMT in India?? I read about this in various forums and also saw few youtube videos. Looks like a good option, I contacted a Delhi based doctor as he on his website claimed he has done FMT before, I called him on his cell, he did answer and asked to me email and he promised he will reply. Of course he is from delhi so no reply :) But lot of people have done FMT at home and got well, I am thinking of doing it my self, as none of the drugs are working for me and I am having flare up since march this year and I am on prednisone from May, all the side effects are already showing up. I am also trying the Dr. Hardik Sharma Delhi based ayurvedic Compound I and II, not sure if anyone has tried that??? I got a months supply from them so far nothing is showing good signs but I am hoping like a blind man that some day I will get vision (not sure how).
    If anyone has tried FMT and if has worked, please share your experience.

Various type of blood test, Urine test, Stool Test etc etc. From this check up, a polyp founded in gall bladder(size-4.16 mm), a solitary ulcer founded in stomach, GGT-137, Low hemoglobin-14.5, High cholesterol. Incidentally, I have also found a bacterial lung infection from my x ray report. Doctor suggest me two test during pain moment when I face that problem in future. Few doctors said that it comes from mental tress, but I am not too much tensed about any issue.Now I continuing few medicine according to doctors suggestion. I am very much tense about my physical condition. Don’t understand what should to do.
    ** I am not alcoholic even I don’t smoke.
    ** I passed a very e regular life on food . (such- I took my breakfast at around 12 pm, lunch at 4/5 pm, dinner at 1/2 am.)

    Please give me a suggestion according to my physical condition. I am very much suffering from this. Please advise me.

    Thank you

    Dr Chandrashekhar Reddy in Yashoda hospital,Hyderabad is surely a trustworthy and skilled doc to put your life in hands off.

    A I G, Tata, Hindustan aircrafts are all similar, they are money making aig may be some doctors are good and some are not.but the management,administration are money mongers.i was to undergo surgery to remove the whole colon,many tests were done including MRI,colon cosy,biopsy and other smaller blood tests.the bill was $650 .
    But the big one is that one day before the surgery the admin informed me that it will cost over $15,000 to perform this surgery in two stages that will take over 3 hours.being a foreigner from the Middle East,Oman, I was both surprised and not surprised!!! I am only a retired teacher,with a pension and don’t own an oil well!!! Is this justified? Pls Advise and comment.

    Hello guys,

    Does anyone know/have experience of Colorectal Surgery or Surgery for UC? I am out of options, I have UC and asked to get my colon out. Please spare me the suggestions of not going for it, because trust me I have suffered non stop for 2 years with pain, bleeding, weight loss, side effects of prednisone etc. I avoided surgery from past 3 years, but I have no options as no maintenance drugs were helpful for my complicated case. WHat I want to know is for real fact from guys who have done this kind of surgery, how bad or good the whole process is, what is the cost a ball part, after effect, time to get back to have normal life IF THERE IS ANY :) I just wish if this all could end soon, cant take it anymore!!!!
    Have a beautiful family, lost my job, life, everything, been 2 years sitting at home waiting to get better, but as if better is out of this world for me. Anyway please take some time and write about your experience about the surgery. DOnt write about hospitals and doctors as that is administrative part, I know eventually it will matter but as of now I have to prepare my mind for the F* surgery.

    Thanks a ton!!
    Hope god heals all those who suffer and include me in that list :)

    Hi, I have been suffering from Gastric problem for the last 1 year.. Initial symptoms were burning my stomach, pain in throat, stomach pain. I consulted Gastroenterologist at Yashoda Hospital, Secunderabad and Mr. Srinivasa Rao prescribed some tablets. After having the tablets, my problem solves. But again, the same symptoms repeating for the last two months. I consulted a Physician and he suggested me to undergo HPylori test. I have done H.Pylori test and it was above the range. Dr. told me that u r suffering from H.Pylori and suggested me to have HP Kit for two weeks with sucral tonic. Even after having HP Kit also, I am not cured and suffering the same problem. Again I went to that same Dr. and he then suggested me to have centadac tab for 30 days with sucral. After using the tablets there appears no problem but when I stop the tablets the same problem appears. Guys, please help me or suggest me the right doctor pl since I am suffering a lot to this ailment.

    Hello there, I am looking for a good hospital with exceptional international patient service for my mom. She is suffering from diffuse gastritis and needs to remove papilloma from her esophagus. She got done Biopsy in China somehow its not healing over 3 months. We are so worried if it turned out to be cancer. So looking for a good doctor who can appropriately treat her. I tried to contact with CMC Vellore or AIIMS and Apollo in Chennai and AIG. Only AIG contacted me back and I am applying for medical visa with their invitation letter and planning to visit next week. After reading all these comment I started to confuse if I did a correct decision to send my mom there. Do you know any good doctor in Apollo Chennai or Apollo Hyderbad? seems like Apollo has pretty good service for international patients such as picking them up from the airport and assist them for whatever they need and that’s probably the only option left for me if i needed to change my decision within this 7 day time frame. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so mcuh

  61. Abhisek Chakraborty October 5, 2014 at 11:50 pm #

    Dear Hally,

    If you want to survive do not go to aig. My mother was suffering from the same & operated duodenostomy followed by gastrojejunostomy & survived. That was in kolkata by Dr. Kishore k Chowdhury of Ramakrishna Mision Seva Pratisthan, kolkata. He is also attached with Microlap Nursing home, kolkata. I strongly recomend Dr. Kishore K Chowdhury if operation needed. Otherwise go to cmc vellore without hesitation. Apollo hyd is also money sucker. Now it is up to you buddy. Good luck.

  62. hally October 6, 2014 at 12:49 am #

    thank you so much for your advice. I looked up the doctor u suggested. And my concern is how international people would contact them? there was not much information on both cmc vellore and the other hospital that you suggested and if know the way please let me know. my parents both never been to India and also have very lil english. so I need to contact them first to verify if there is people to help to puck them up from airport drop them at their hotel and help for all the admission etc.. please advice me. thank you so much again

  63. Abhisek Chakraborty October 7, 2014 at 3:38 am #

    For Dr. Prof. Kishore k Chowdhury – or

    For Dr. Prof. Avijit Chowdhury –

    There is lot of private cab service or prepaid taxi booth in airport.

      CMC, VELLORE is a good hospital for gastro outdoor patients, however one has to wait for indoor treatment due to limited no. of beds.Dr. Joseph is very understanding & able doctor.he devotes enough time to each patient,furthermore,the treatment at the hospital as well as accommodation in township is economical.

      Firstly take a deep breath & give a break to yourself. Consult Dr. Sidhartha Sankar Ray, Clinical Heamatologist, Medical College, kolkata. He is attached with RSV Hospital, Tollygunj phari also. First meet him with all your up to date reports & follow his advice. Then you should contact Dr. Manoj Agarwal, Clinical Gastroenterologist, Belleview & Kothari hospital, kolkata. Otherwise straight meet with Dr. Sanjoy kr. Chatterjee, Prof of internal medicine, medical college, though he has his chamber near to north city college also.

      Do not confuse. try to meet them accordingly, if no result comes then go to cmc vellore. Take 7 – 10 days to meet them before going to vellore.

      Good luck.

    In Hyderabad

    My mom is getting the UC treatment from the Global hospital and the dr name is kiran peddi. I am in US and this doctor along with few other doctors wrote a book and i am sure he knows something about this disease. So far, he seems to be helping my mom.

    Initially my mother went to asian gastro in HYD and i am not very happy with their treatment, so i had switched my mom. I also heard few people suggested somajiguda yashoda, i do not know anything about that doctor. the dr profile page also does not say anything about the IBD specialization

    i m really very much worried.
    please guide me.

    Hello Sharique

    Sorry to hear that your mother is undergoing so much of pain and trouble.
    I am an Crohn’s patient and I have been undergone all the symptoms which you’ve mentioned above.

    I would suggest you to take care of the eating habits and diets which you and your family are on. We all feel that taking medicines will improve our conditions but in gastro problems such as Crohns, UC or Ulcers, I would say that food plays a major role.

    While your mother is unable to digest any food she’ll definitely fell weak.Below I’m mentioning few foods which will definitely help her to re-gain health:

    Tip1: STOP taking milk and milk products.

    Tip2: Avoid ROUGHAGE in foods such as salad, raw vegetables and it will hurt the gut while passing through it.

    Tip3: Avoid oil and greasy substance in food such as oil, butter, ghee etc (difficult to digest)

    Tip4: Carbohydrates and sugar also create trouble while digestion so avoid Sugar, rice, Potatoes etc.

    Tip5: Eat boiled fish as its a great source of Protien and easy to digest. avoid mutton (red meat).

    Tip 6: Eat banana after every meal as banana contains magnesium which acts as Natural antacid.

    Tip7: Take probiotics with the medicines as probiotics contains good Bacteria which helps in digestion and reduces burden on your gut hence helps in healing.

    Tip8: Always be hydrated, drink as much of water you can.

    Tip9: AVOID cold drinks, coffee, tea and chocolates as these are not at all good for the gut.

    Note : These all changes in diet have been implemented by me and I have seen the improvement.
    Most important of ALL you should not panic, rather be calm and think what can be done next.

    Thnx a lot John..
    i will take care of the diet.

    But she has not been diagnosed with any disease..neither crohns, clitosis, UC OR Ulcer.
    Firstly, I want the disease to be diagnosed.

    My mother already been consulted to aiims delhi and medanta gurgaon.
    The mendanta doctors prescribed a medicine called “omnacortil”.this medicine was being useful to the disease but due to this medicine my mom got
    Doctor changed this omnacortil with other medicine which is not being useful & she lossing blood in stool heamoglobin is down again.
    Please tell me the best gastroenterology doctor or hospital.

      You should try Dr. Nageshwar Reddy at AIG hospital Hyderabad. It is difficult to get an appointment with him, he is chairman of the group, a fine doctor. I am sure you will find lot of good doctors suggested by many people all over India. I am suggesting this doctor and hospital because this is a Gastro related hospital and all the variety of test can be done here at one place, also number of good doctors are available to review your case. I have suffered from similar issues but my problem was diagnosed so I was lucky enough. Take a reference letter from your local doctor for Dr. Reddy and visit this hospital. I am sure your issue will be resolved soon. Do ask your mom to take iron supplements, drink lot of water, take Vitamin supplements.

    Never go to aig or wish to meet dr. nageswar reddy. Believe me I’ve experienced with my mom & so many people during treatment. If you are looking for national then must visit cmc, vellore. Dr. joseph or others. At least you will get concrete answer from them for sure. Otherwise if you wish to come kolkata then let me know, i will help you to find good doctor.

      AIG is completely fake and too much commercial. I had a terrible experience with AIG last week. I’m a patient of UC since 2004. I recently moved to Hyderabad along with my family. So, decided to visit AIG as this is the number one in Asia according to them. But, fully disappointed. They treat the patients like toys. For them, its just another CASE. They don’t feel the pain the patient is having, both physically and mentally. They are not ready to listen and understand. Sympathy is out of the question. They tell the patients all the bullshits and they think that all will believe them. The management is worst. Even there is nobody to take your complain. It was a wrong decision for me to go there. I strongly suggest not to visit AIG and never trust any AIG doctors blindly.
