I was made to feel special and treated with dignity and care

I would like to thank each and every person at Columbia Asia Hospital Pune for the amazing way my family and I were cared for.

In this day and age, medical providers/institutions have forgotten that they are dealing with individuals. We tend to be thought of as faceless cash machines.

I am happy to say at Columbia Asia Hospital Pune I was treated like family without compromising on the quality of care. The Doctors took the time to explain things to me without patronising me. They were cautious and made sure I was physically and mentally ready before surgery.

Being an over weight person one is often treated with disgust & distain. People often forget that we have feelings too and hurt as much if not, more than others. At Columbia Asia Hospital Pune I was made to feel special and treated with dignity and care. I cannot tell you how much that meant to me.

My greatest fear was that I was a “high risk” for surgery being over weight. Upon meeting the team and realised that this is what they do. This is what makes them the best. Their specialty is Gastric Surgery on obese people. What better hands to be in than the ones that are prepared for all scenarios? It’s been a month and a half after my Gastric Sleeve Surgery. I am happy to say that your amazing after care still continues even though I am not even in the same country. The Doctors still care and are on hand whenever needed. The dietitians still track my diet and are updating my meal plan.

I honestly, feel Columbia Asia Hospital - Pune hasn't just been my hospital for my surgery but a life partner there to support and help me. You took one of the most terrifying times of my life and turned it into a fond memory.

I thank you for that.
