    Doctors and staff are very caring and supportive. We got deluxe room and was well maintained. Good, water, coffee tea everything served to the room and the attendee can concentrate on the patient.

    Nurses are caring and will have smile on the face even in night duty. Really appreciate their service. Thank you.

    Room cleanliness is maintained and everyday bedsheets are changed.

    Hospital is taking care of everything about patient and attendee. Though we are in pain due to sick but hospital staff make sure to give all support make our stay smooth.

    Parking, cafeteria, ATM, pharmacy available.

    I was admitted to Fortis for a routine procedure. Dr. Raju, my surgeon was excellent. Kind and knowledgeable. I have no problem with the doctors here.

    But the facilities and housekeeping is another matter - in spite of getting an Executive room, I encountered many problems. Room cupboard had no keys (key was made 24 hours after I checked in), clock was not working, bathroom towel hook was missing. TV doesn’t work.

    Housekeeping would forget to replenish toilet paper and towels. It took very long to get service. For such an expensive hospital, there aren’t even electric beds available.

    I feel the housekeeping staff is either poorly trained or not trained to care for patients. For what this room costs, I could be in a Marriott. Feel let down.

    I had a great experience throughout my treatment at Fortis hospital Bannerghatta Road.I think this is one of the best hospitals in Bangalore and especially south Bangalore.
    Best doctors and nursing staff I have seen, Nursing staff are overworked. Patient was treated immediately with all required medications. Staffs are very helpful. Overall excellent experience... Each and everyone has taken care very well and the entire team has given excellent support and Food for patients is also good...
    But worst insurance claim experience. Insurance person says the claim is approved but Fortis staff says they have not got any update. This process went on for 1 complete day. Bill processing is an hectic process where the person responsible takes 4hrs to process the bill.

    I had a great experience throughout my treatment at Fortis hospital Bannerghatta Road.
    The entire process from start to finish was fabulous! And I'm not saying this because just like that! I've had multiple surgeries here and my family members have also been treated by Fortis Hospital.
    I think this is one of the best hospitals in Bangalore and especially south Bangalore.
    Food for patients is also good.
    A special mention for the canteen at Fortis. It's amazing! Really good food for the family members at reasonable prices.
    The doctors, housekeeping and nursing staff are amazing too.
    And most importantly the hospital is neat, clean and well maintained.
    I would recommend this hospital to everyone, especially if you stay in South Bangalore!
    Hope you like my review!
