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.

  1. 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.

    1. Dear fren I am from Nepal my name is Sunil my little brother is suffering from polyps inside intestine so we r planning to go to aig will u plz reply me as soon as possible or u can give me a miss call at 9851075305 so I can call u back pls pls pls I ve booked ticket for this Monday after 2days so pls tell me about aig hospital

      1. 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

      2. visited dr .rupa banarjee for my stomach problem
        She is so stupid bloody bulshit fucking of money ..know nothing having no flow of patient ..bloody bitch ,motherfucker shameless lady .she knows nothing she moves here and there .she will not listen your problem only she will give you lots of costly tests …advice never go to that bloody fucking.

      1. 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.

        Hi Liza,

        To whom you at last landed with your Husband. I am also from Dhaka and I need advise

        Kind regards,

    3. I feel abdominal pain & bleeding significently during toilet 4-5 time a day. Doctor says it’s corn’s disease. I’h been treated for 3 years but still have the problem, my age is 27 years old women and don’t have baby cause of medication. Is there any suitable treatment for long term remission of my disease without surgery, want to visit best doctor or hospital speselized on this disease in India, please help me to know……

    4. Hi Amal, how r u now?
      I’m Sarthak, I was diagonised with crohn’s 6 months back… Can you suggest me places or doctors best for the treatment of Crohn’s?
      Where are you treating yourself now?

    5. Absolutely commercial hospital. They are only interested in surgeries and it’s a big mafia of doctors who all frighten you to death . Absolutely no sympathy nor care. You are treated like a cattle . 90 % of patients are gullible villagers and poor guys shell out life earnings believing their ill advice. Dr. N.R never sees you unless you are super rich and come with huge references and pocket full of money. Avoid completely surgery. UC will never kill you. You can manage it with lifestyle changes.

  2. 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.

    1. hi , i read ur comment .my mother iz also having proctitis since 10 years . she is taking mesalamine(mesacol) 3 times a day since 4 months. we have almost tried every doctor n treatment available in nepal bt till now there is no any improvement. the main problem she is facing is diet. she can’t digest even simple food. she is taking completely boiled food since 5 years but her episodes of diarrhoea and constipation are recurrent. i’ll be greatful 2 u if u could suggest me agood doctor. plz send me the address of the doctor and hospital!! my e-mail id is igtc.od@hotmail.com thank u!!!!!

  4. Uma,

    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….


  5. 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.

    1. 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”, http://www.breakingtheviciouscycle.info/home/
      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!!!

  7. Hi Guys,
    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.


    1. I have also same problem when i back to my country i was fine then after 3 month after came start again . Is there any relationship .

  8. 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!!

    1. 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 pawan2687@gmail.com

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

    1. 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.

    1. Abhisek jee I am from Nepal my doc of Nepal referred me to aig Hyderabad u ve written the worst hos may I pls know about which hos r u talking about pls

  12. 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.

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

    1. 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.

  14. Hello,

    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.


    1. 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.

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

      I heard they are specialist.

  15. Dear All,

    Myself Is Bittu Kundu from Siliguri, West Bengal . 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.

    My email id is bittukundu@yahoo.co.in

    1. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Hi Guys,
    Can any one suggest me best doctor for GI, as my gastro enterologist could not able to solve my problem,i.e whether i am suffering with colitis or chrons………………..actually i am using akt 2 tablets from the past 4 months…………………..

  18. 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.

  19. 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 jr.doctor; 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.

    1. hi all,
      i am pujitha (25f) i am suffering from crohns from past 3 years went to many places before i landed in global treated by dr.sethu babu (now in care banjara nd saivani).I was put on predinisone and pentasa nd was on remission for 2 years unfortunately had a flare up last year and was put on remicade ( had very bad side effect my wbc count went down to 500) came off remicade and started on predmet there is little discomfort but majorly i dnt see any thing happening. Dr.sethu babu gives u time and that is the best part been to rupa , nageswar reddy nd all been there done that ! finally went back to my doctor itself.

        1. 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.

  21. hello guys,
    Can any one tell me treatment duration time for crohns disease,will it be completely curable after the treatment,can any one share their experiences………….

    1. buddy, this is not a technical site. we can only share our experience & suggest you to go some where get proper diagnosis, course of treatment, good doctor name etc. Better you consult with good doctor & get cured or improved. don’t waste your time to asking such technical question. Hope you will not misunderstand me.

  22. My mum is serios she is fighting with paincreatitis guys please suggest me the best treatment for this desease please i m from siliguri and now she is admitted in Neotia Getwel siliguri

  23. 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.

  24. 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?

  25. 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.


    1. 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

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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.”


    1. Hi Ashok

    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.

  31. 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.


    1. Hi Jag,

      Hope you are feeling well!!
      Have you got the FMT done? Please let me know if this is a cure for crohn’s or again the so called “remission”

      Thanks in Advance
