With almost 2 months in hospital, consultation with the best doctors in mumbai, running down on finances and to our despair no treatment. What we went through was unexplainable. When we had almost given up and we were handed over a booklet by our family doctor with details, the cases you had handled, your team and about the high end facilities of Apollo CBCC, there was a ray of hope and we immediately headed to Ahmedabad overnight on 30th December 13. Rest is history, with the correct diagnosis to the correct line of treatment to the special wards, best doctors, specialized team, the treatment for Akshaansh finally started. Much to our relief there was this selfless team of doctors who made sure that thy leave no stone unturned to save his life. The entire CBCC and other teams not only understood our pain but comforted us day and night. The situation was grave but your smile was our constant hope and deep down we had a realization that everything will be fine soon.

  • Dear All, At the outset, I would not forgive myself if I didn’t try to write to thank you. But I don’t’ think any words could possibly be adequate to express my feelings or gratitude to you. How do you thank a person for saving your health and extending your life? It’s impossible. I Was admitted on 17th Sep for the treatment Autologus stem cell Transplant for my disease Multiple Myeloma, during my 18 days stay I did not encounter one negative person and everyone I came in contact with was professional, courteous and concerned with my well being: from the staff like Nursing Staff, housekeeping and food service to interns and doctors. I have had a few hospital stays and my experience at your hospital was by far the best care I have ever received. Since everyone we came in contact with was exceptional and especially the nursing staff. I would like to let you know how much I appreciate the special care I was given by the Doctors and staff of your hospital. In particular, I would like to thank my Doctor Dr. Chirag Shah has always been a wonderful doctor – informative, patient, warm, and endless source of optimism and for the treatment was "right on." I would also Thankful to other Doctors like Dr. Maharshi Desai, Dr. Ravish Shah, Dr. Arun and visiting Doctors were all attentive to my needs, professional, and made my recovery so much easier to achieve. Lastly what should I say about nursing staff, “ HOME FEELING” Sister Upasana and her colleagues Biju, Joseph, Dhanya, Anu, Priyanka, Komal, Ankita and Heena led an excellent team and provided me with high quality care both night and day. The teasing, jokes, and hearty laughs were my best medicine. All sisters & Brothers treat me like my daughters & sons. You and your organization should be proud to have staff such as these people, and knowing that I live in your community, knowing the high-quality people here, makes my life so much better. Thanx once again and please extend my deepest appreciation to all of your staff for the wonderful care I received. God Bless All of You…….. Mr. Subodh R. Harde Date: 04.10.2013, Friday

  • I, Valjibhai Patel was diagnosed with advanced Rectal Cancer (T3N2). I consulted few doctors in India, who advised immediate surgery, with a permanent colostomy (diversion of stool from abdomen wall). We did not like this option and hence we wanted to find out if there was any way to make the cancer smaller and reduce extent of surgery. Therefore, we met Dr. Chirag A. Shah, who is expert in treating cancers with medicines. He suggested use of chemotherapy simultaneously with radiotherapy first to reduce size of cancer. At the same time, my son who is a doctor in USA was also talking to specialists there. He discussed my case with over 20 experts there. All of them advised the same way as was advised by Dr. Chirag Shah. I underwent chemotherapy and radiation under his guidance, with very good results. Then I went to USA, where my evaluation showed excellent reduction in size of tumor. This allowed surgeon there to operate on me with little difficulty. He could complete the operation within one and half hour and most importantly colostomy was avoided. To be a Cancer Survivor and getting cured from disease, it is very important to receive the right guidance for treatment. Today, I am very happy to have this new lease of life from Dr. Chirag A. Shah.

  • "It's been five years this month that I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I found a lump on my breast and had a mammogram in April, 2004. The first week of May I had a biopsy. I prayed very hard that weekend that the pathologist would find the lump was benign. My surgeon called and told me that it was cancer. God doesn't always answer prayers the way we want Him to. Strangely, breast cancer is not like other diseases in which you feel sick and go to the doctor who makes you feel better. With breast cancer, usually you feel fine, then you find a lump and start to worry. By the time you visit the doctor, you are scared of what he or she will say is wrong with you and what you are going to have to do about it. Then you have the biopsy and either are immensely relieved that the lump was benign or you are devastated by the news that you are one of the one in thirty women in India who do have Breast Cancer. Usually you still feel pretty well physically, but emotionally you are a wreck because you dread the additional breast surgery, the radiation and chemotherapy, the uncertainty of the long-term prognosis, and the change in your body image from being a "whole woman" to having just one breast and being bald while undergoing chemotherapy.
