19 Jan 2015 About MIOT, amazing facility, equipment, arrangements etc. It worth every single penny we spent. Please extend our gratitude to the MIOT management. It couldn’t have been better than this.

Dear Dr. Bashi  Dr. VijithCherian,

My family, especially my father, wanted to extend a big thanks to you. Both of you did a wonderful job!!!

We came to MIOT with lot of anxiety. Because of our previous meetings with well know cardiologist in Gujarat and attempt to put graft by radiologist in Mumbai, we knew our sister had a very complex and life threatening aorta problem.

Before reaching your office we did search on internet about you and MIOT. We read all positive feedback. Finally, when we entered your office our worry was gone.

An ever smiling face and a rock solid confidence of yours, ensured we are at the right place. Smile on doctor’s face heals half the pain.

Before surgery I met a person who was serving at Indian Information Broadcast in Delhi. He told story of his 90 year old sister whom you operated successfully. Her case was rejected by all the hospitals in Chennai. That boosted our confidence further.

Finally it was the day of operation 4th August 2014. Our sister was taken to operation theatre around at 7:40. We waited …… was at 6:45 when I was called to your office to confirm the news of successful operation.

You are the best doctor we have ever met. We will not forget for rest of our life your smiling face, compassionate and kind way to treating the patient and the relatives. In spite of super busy schedule you were always approachable. Your passion to help needy people is amazing. Please keep helping them.

Your team, we have no words. Julius, Mustafa, Gananakani, ICU staff. Best bestbest people in the medical field we have met. Ever ready to help. You all are so down to earth.

From bottom of our hearts we pray to GOD almighty to give you best of the reward and success to all of you.

About MIOT, amazing facility, equipment, arrangements etc. It worth every single penny we spent. Please extend our gratitude to the MIOT management. It couldn\’t have been better than this.

Sir, we stand and salute your parents who must have worked hard to make you what you are today. A super doctor and above all a kind hearted person. A big thanks to your families as well.

I can keep praising endlessly….. I will fall short of words.

Again, thanks for saving my sisters a new life. She is doing really well.

I also take this opportunity to wish you a very happy new year. Thanks a lot!!!!

Kind Regards,


Vadodara, Gujarat.

19 Jan 2015 My mom underwent a successful liver transplant. Coming here, I thought the most amazing thing that could happen was seeing mom getting back to her normal life.

God’s awesomeness – praising him in the storm

“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.”

– Bible verse from the book of Psalms, chapter 20, verses 7 and 8

Greetings all,

One of the most interesting things about the Bible is how certain verses spring to life depending on the setting you are in and what\’s happening around you at the time.

The verse quoted above is one such example. I have come across it many timesin the past, but never has it spoken to me as much as it has over the last three months and it continues to hold true and strong even now as I write this email.

I’ve been in Chennai since Sept 14th – a week after my mom underwent a successful liver transplant. I haven’t had the chance to share news of my departure and all the progress here with a lot of you so thought it best to send an email to keep everyone informed.

Mom’s surgery took place on the 7th of September and every day since has been a gift. We have been witnessing God’s awesomeness each day throughout mom’s recovery process. Coming here, I thought the most amazing thing that could happen was seeing mom getting back to her normal life – which I did.

But realistically speaking, I think what has amazed me the most is her unwavering faith and trust in the Lord both before and after the surgery. Most of us have read the verse in the Bible where Jesus says, ‘.your faith has healed you’ – I saw it take place in real life. Faith and prayer were the never ending source of the following in these times:

Peace of mind and assurance – throughout the time mom was in Chennai. For such a major surgery there was peace that we all found solace in.
Clarity – when a decision to undergo surgery was required and uncertainty and risk loomed large, God provided our family with the much needed clarity which came bundled with calm. It was as though he said ‘be atpeace, I am with you’
Fast forward to a few months later and we are back in Kerala. In a mere 80 days post-surgery, mom was running around the house as if she had put it allbehind her. She was going for regular walks and making me a cup of tea in the evening along with hers. And I thought to myself at the time that victory was surely ours while the battle belonged to our Lord.

In all of this I know we are not alone. Not so long as we serve a livingLord and Savior.

He has been a provider, shelter, healer and redeemer throughout all of this.

Mom was able to get a donor for her transplant on time and without any delaythat would cause her physical condition and well-being to deteriorate. She got called twice in the span of two months and even though the logistics wouldn\’t make it possible to go the first time around, God made the second

call happen. That in itself was a huge blessing as the right match was critical and it was what everything that was to follow hinged on. God was preparing us for his time. In a city completely foreign to us (Chennai), Godused his people to take care of all our needs. We found care and support inthe hands of a highly qualified and competent team at MIOT and a physician who too was a man of God. Through one home and avenue he led us to everything we needed at every juncture. Mom was able to recover in a good clean home in Chennai where we got plenty of support physically, emotionallyand spiritually. We had a church and believers praying for us round the clock. Mom\’s healing and recovery was a great success. I noticed that Mom never showed signs of fear or doubt. She always told me that she knew Jesus was holding her hand – even when she was being wheeled into the OT for her surgery.

Everything discussed about God’s awesomeness will hold once again and we will reflect on the great things he has done for us even in times like this.

This time again, we will be patient, persevere, endure and march in the risen Lord\’s name because this is what we do.

what we do.

Even though we’ve been associated with MIOT for a long time, it was the first time one of us actually came in as a patient and the experience has reinforced our belief that we are doing the right thing!

Even as I thank the entire MIOT team , I would like to place on record my appreciation of a few individuals who helped me through the 8 days I was there.

Dr Trevor Nair whose early morning ICU visits & interactions gave me the feel that every small thing was taken seriously and addressed; Dr Varun who with his attention to minute changes, quick and definite responses and unflagging energy kept me positive; Sister Richa (ICU) who took care of me right through with complete confidence and attention to my slightest discomfort ; Physiotherapist Mani (ICU) who firmly insisted I walk with him in the wee hours of the morning ; Sisters Bessie Thomas, Gandhimathi & Janaki ( in the ICU) and Sisters Chitra & Anju ( later in my room) – for never panicking, for their quiet confidence and endless patience ; Ms Sajini who saw to it every day that we were more than comfortable in every way. And ofcourse my surgeon Dr Eapen Koshy who’s complete conviction on my getting fully well has me set a new goalpost: Registering for the Wipro Marathon 5 km walk in December – something which I would never have dreamt of doing!

Together I find they have given me an even better reason to get well and come back stronger- to make sure I do justice to their incredible effort. Thankyou MIOT.

In all the years I have lived in chennai my visit to MIOT happened only 2 days back.

Firstly I was astounded by the energy exuded by Dr. Mohandas at his age. Secondly the service all the admin staff offered was excellent.

Thirdly the expertise and confidence that Dr. Bhaskaran exuded as he worked on a fibrositis in my appendix scar was amazing. A small injection has relieved me a yoga teacher from so many connected tightness due to the fibrositis.

Hari om and love
