Dear Dr. Padmakumar,
My hernia surgery ( the first surgery in my life ) last Friday was done perfectly. You & Sr. Feby helped me to face it in a positive manner. On the eve of the surgery I was very nervous ( thanks to one of my office colleagues). When I was wheeled in for the surgery, I didn't even know it was over, till the nurse told me that the procedure is completed, when I woke up !!!!!! NOW in future I can face any surgery. Thanks a lot Dr I have recovered very well, in fact I am out & about daily. My wife says you are the best surgeon she has ever seen. Thanks to Sr Feby for her support. God Bless !!!
