First of all, A big Big Bigg Thank you to the management of Asian Heart Institute and Research Centre for taking the critical care of Shri Rajaram Bholadutt Jakhwal, aged 73 years. After consulting a number of big doctors and hospital, we were informed that the case is very critical and the procedure could not be done with those hospitals. Later we were told to consult with Dr. Ramakanta Panda, who was the only one to take over the case. On the first visit, Dr. Ramakanta Panda confirmed that he can easily operate the patient with 99% results. Further, he also guided us to meet Dr. Santosh Dora, who with his guidance will help in getting the surgery done without open heart surgery. With Dr. Panda guidance, Dr. Santosh Dora helped us in all possible ways by making us understand the Do's and Don'ts of the surgery named TAVI. After getting the comfort and looking at the age of the patient, prevailing disease( open heart in 2011, Asthma, Diabetes and Blood pressure) we confirmed with the doctor that we were ready to go for the first TAVI surgery in AHI. Asian Heart Doctors without wasting much time fixed the surgery within a month. We were assured that the surgery will be a success and that the back up is ready while doing the TAVI surgery. By the grace of god, with the Asian Heart specialist team of doctors around the surgery was successful and the recovery of the patient was beyond imagination. A big thank you to Dr. Ramakanta Panda, Dr. Santosh Dora, Dr. Nilesh Gautam for supporting the patient and handling the relatives of the patient in the best way possible. Thank you Dr.Anisha for all her support from admission to discharge. Thank you to Sneha and Rajee for all their support following up with TPA and getting the work done at the earliest. Thank you to the security staff, pantry staff, administrative staff, and all the staff helping us in the best possible ways. Not to miss the second half of the doctors who are called Sisters who helped us in the best possible ways from day 1 till the day of discharge. Big Thank You to all the Nurses in normal ward and ICU for handling the patient. We wish AHI all the best and would urge patients with similar diseases to consult AHI and get recovered at the earliest.

Dear Team, Let me begin by introducing myself as Pooja Goenka who underwent an open heart surgery for ASD Closure on Jan 21, 2016 in AHI. I know it is too late for thanks & appreciation but like they say "better late than never". So, here I am, finally expressing my long due gratitude to a few people listed below who have excelled in their job in every possible manner. First one of course being Dr. Panda himself for the wonderful, noble job he is doing without loosing it inspite of people like me questioning him till the last minute of our meetings in order to understand the minute details of my case. l also appreciate the atmosphere that he has created unlike other hospitals which I feel are quite depressing & still has transparent policies when it comes to billing. Secondly, hats off to Dr. Dora. The reason being that he was the only person who successfully showed me my ASD in a 2D echo. I was lucky that he entered the room during my pre ops screening for some reason. I have done my 2D echo thrice at 3 different places in the past, one of them being at a very renowned hospital. However, my ASD was never detected in a 2D Echo not even by the team of AHI including Dr. Mahesh Vyas who heads the echo dept. since the location of my defect was not quiet feasible. But this man did it. Moving on are a few others who knew their jobs & are as follows :- 1) Dr Ganesh & Roselyn from Radiography 2) Anaga (Nurse In ICU) 3) Dr. Pranati Gupte (Physiotherapist) being the only one from the dept. who did her job the way it should have been done. Rest would just come, do the drill & leave without bothering about any results whatsoever. 4) The Security Guys, the 2 Ladies at the cash counter (Unfortunately, I don't remember their name. Guess one of them was Vaishali, were all extremely kind & patient which is highly appreciated. I once again take this opprtunity to thank Dr. Panda & his entire team for doing such a wonderful job of fixing our hearts and I always say this to all the doctors that we owe our lives to you. So thank you for taking care of us. Without you guys it would not have been possible. God Bless! Regards, Pooja Goenka

I got operated upon at Asian Heart Institute almost three years ago and I have to say that it is the best cardiac hospital in the country. Dr. Panda is not only an excellent surgeon but also a great human being. I visit the hospital even today for my regular health checkups and have seen the popularity of the hospital grow, over the years, by leaps and bounds. The staff, duty doctors and the nurses too are very helpful and great at their jobs.
-Tarun Gogoi (Chief Minister, Assam)
I am writing to thank you for my successful heart operation. Your role, as Chief Operating Surgeon, was pivotal in the surgery. Post surgery, your excellent care has helped me recuperate faster. Your patients should count themselves lucky as they not only have the benefit of experience of expertise of the highest caliber but also of genuine concern for their well being. I am sure your efficiency, sympathetic attitude and professionalism will give many a fresh lease of life in the years to come. My wife joins me in conveying our best wishes to you and your family.
-Manmohan Singh (Former Prime Minister of india)
Dr. Panda deserves all praise not only for his professional excellence but also for the excellent team doctors and nurses which he has built around. There is fantastic co-ordination among all the departments including the house keeping and security. The cleanliness and maintenance are also so good. The nurses are polite and helpful. My sincere gratitude to Dr. Panda and all. My best wishes for the continuous success of Asian Heart Institute.

On being advised by the H.O.D. cardiology dept., SCB Medical College, Cuttack, I got my wife Smt. Laxmi Patra admitted in Asian Heart institute, Mumbai, on 10th October 2013. She underwent bypass surgery on 12th October 2013 conducted by leading heart surgeon Dr. Ramakanta Panda. We stayed for post operative observation & examination for a fortnight & were discharged on 29th October 2013. She is now fine. We have come today for her check up 3 months after operation. So far as the care and the treatment of my wife is concerned, she was well treated and everyone in the hospital is well behaved. I have a word of praise for Dr. Panda. Humanity is his Charisma; words would be insufficient for his Works. I wish him all success. May Lord Jagannath shower blessings on him.

The Facilities are not only world class but perhaps better than that! I wish if this model could be replicated in the country it certainly would solve a lot of medical related problems. The doctors and the supporting team are not only best professionally but also have lot of warmth which certainly helps.

My name is Hon'ble Junet Mohammed. I am a member of parliament in Kenya National Assembly representing a Constituency called SUNA EAST in Migori, republic of Kenya. I want to thank The Asian Heart Institute for the super care they gave to my dad who needed heart surgery. I would also like to profusely thank Dr. Ramakanata Panda whose contact was given to me in Nairobi. Initially when I was coming, I thought Dr. Panda might be too busy for us but fortunately he gave us all time we anticipated to have with him. He is a good man and we will spread the good word about the hospital, Dr. Panda and his entire staff in my country.
