It has always been said that God helps his people with regard to their health problems through the hands of doctors. I can vouch for that statement.

Dr. Padmakumar has been a life-saver for me. On August 30, 2015, when I met him for the first time, I was weighing 186 kg and was struggling big time. He gave me complete awareness of my problems and the solutions. I could see the glow in his face and just believed his words. I got the surgery done on September 5, 2015, and he took care of me like his on kin.

Today, after 40 days, I weigh 149 kgs - shed 37 kgs.

Need to write more? In addition to being a skilled doctor, his care, love, and concern for patients has been tremendous. Dear doctor, all I can say is "Thank you so much"

Most wonderful experience in life. Lost almost 20 kg. Unbelievable. Most successful with one of the drawback in life.

Sincerely recommend to go ahead with the sleeve surgery. Thanks a lot to Dr. Padmakumar and his team.

I also record our deep appreciation to Dr Padmakumar and Dr Madhukara Pai, for their professionalism and excellent care extended to my wife during, before and after the laparoscopy conducted on her GB on 23 January 2014. Every time we meet them, their smiling faces and their reassuring explanations made us secure, and my wife felt positive and happy. She is now back to her normal routine after the operation, and out and about; however will follow the doctors' advice on food and exercise. Will get myself checked up at our next visit, which will be in June. Shall let you know in good time. Many thanks and kind regards
