He is an amazing person and professional approach. Explained everything clearly. I am very happy to recommend him to our friends and family. Thanks a lot for all the support.
Isha Mandlaus, October 2019
It was my last session of physiotherapy today and I just want to thank Dr. Meryl Joe Colaco for the constant support and motivation he provided, these past few months. I am honestly not an easy patient to handle and I completely understand that but with his guidance I was surprised with my own speedy recovery. He would make sure to keep me until every single exercise for the day was completed. He always made time and was very patient with me.
The physiotherapy department was excellent. They would follow up and would easily schedule or reschedule, sometimes even adjust the timings according to the patient needs. Very cooperative and friendly environment. Thanks to everyone who was a part of this beautiful journey.
Uriel Tewillson, September 2019
I will say this is best hospital so far, their services are awesome and our doctor DR. VISHNU is always there when needed and knows how to make her patients smile even in pains. She’s the best.
Nurses are very welcoming and makes u feel at home especially Nurse SAJITHA. At a point I thought I was in my house and not a hospital due to the friendliness from the staffs.
You don’t get well just by taking medicines but I will say the environment in which u are plays a big role.
Medeor is a place to go to if u want a good service.
