It won’t be fair if I don’t thank it in my leased life. It all possible only due to the dedicated team of your hospital and BMT unit as special mention.

I myself a male nurse served in Indian Air force for 20years, now working in the same profile in a R&D department of Central Government hospital. My experience span over 30 years in medical service, I take this opportunity to highlight my immense feeling and appreciation towards service rendered by your hospital. I had an acute phase of severe anemia and bleeding tendencies in gums and sub-dermal bleeding. My clotting factor was totally deranged due to abnormal premature white cells in blood streams. I happen to observe this and blood test was done at my hospital. On seeing the test result, my Chief Physician referred me to MIOT for further treatment.

When I landed at MIOT, the expert Haematologist and Haemato Oncologist Dr. Chezhian Subash extensively examined me and put me to array of tests to confirm the diagnosis. When the result arrived within hour they pronounced the diagnosis of APML (A type of Blood Cancer) to me and to my wife. Life shattered and the earth slipped under my feet. But the assurance and confidence building measure by the doctor gave me full hope and faith. Next minute, the treatment started with correction of my blood counts with transfusion of multiple packed cell, platelet and clotting factor. All the aseptic precaution were taken and shifted me to Special BMT isolation room as my immunity was very low so as I should not get any opportunistic bacterial, fungal and viral infection. Quickly they charted out a Chemotherapy protocol. The chemotherapy also went side by side with transfusion. Initially all my blood requirement was met by MIOT transfusion department. Dr. M. Joshua Daniel also played a key role. When the selective blood components required, donors were arranged among my friends and relatives. I was closely monitored and every symptom reported was immediately attended by both doctors. Bone-marrow aspiration was also done to confirm/ check for the cellularity. Within a week all symptoms vanished, I felt disease free except mild chemotherapy effect. Within ten days I was shifted to normal room as my blood counts improved on its own. The initial induction period was only one month. I under went three cycle of consolidation with one month break in each cycle. You will not believe that I was absent for duty only 45 days. Most of the therapy went on with few days admission or as day care.

Exemplary professionalism, unparallel dedication and empathy shone by Dr. Chezhian Subash is what I am standing to say this testimony. I have no wards to express my gratitude and say thanks to almighty that he put me into the those able hands. Assistant Dr.Harikumar, Dr.Naved Ali, Dr. Vishnovi have good liaison with patients and took up the responsibility with zeal and enthusiasm. They minutely watch for any symptom when the chemotherapy or transfusion was on. Always at their feet to serve the patient.

Those angels of god, Sister Renuka, Della, Anju,Philomina, Tindu,Ligiee,Akila have untiring energy, never ending cheerfulness, polite, courteous, ever ready and pleasantly attending the needs is for what I wanted to thank and award them the centum marks. The close nit team member Technician Mr. Bagawathy needs a special mention for well planned, co-ordinated, swift and quick response when demand arises. He accords good reception to the donors and explain the collection procedure in simple terms, eases the anxiety. He is an asset to the unit. Secretary Mrs.Sumathy is very kind hearted always in a mood to lend help.

Your front office team at international block needs mention for courteous, helping nature and for their clock like precision work. All other supporting system are working as well oiled machine. The administration is so fine tuned there is no bottlenecks any where. It is really a international standard in all aspect.

Though the disease was so grievous, the stay at hospital was pleasurable and home away from a home. Minimal hospital stay and early resumption of normal life activity in my case was possible only when you put your patients first. I take this opportunity once again to thank you and wish that you serve to the god by serving humanity. Your service may continue to save many more gods children’s life and limb. My memorable stay at your hospital and the treatment will be edged in golden words in my memory and the relation with your hospital will be carried till last.
