“I underwent Piles operation in Dr.U.Mohan Rau Memorial Hospital last year. Dr.M.Mohan Rao had performed the operation. After the operation I am completely free from piles problem. The operation was performed with meticulous care after carrying out all the tests necessary for the operation.
The post-operation care in the Hospital was excellent. I felt very homely during my stay in the Hospital due to the personal care of the Doctor and the good service rendered by the staff of the Hospital which had enabled me to recoup my health quickly. ”

Mr.R. Vaidyanathan, B.Sc.,

“ This was my first experience entering an operation theatre for an operation. Still I am unable to come to a conclusion whether the sedative injection kept me calm or the melodious music which filled the theatre did it.
And to mention about the post operative care it was one of the best I’ve seen so far. I thank my company doctor for recommending this hospital for my operation.
I wish all the best to each and every staff to achieve further heights and merits in their career. ”


“Let me thank the authorities of Dr U. Mohan Rau Memorial Hospital for having cured me of my hernia problem.

I am very much moved by the courtersy, systematic and parental approach of the doctor, Prof. M. Mohan Rao and his team during the course of my stay in the hospital.

It is highly appreciable that while taking every possible care before the operation, atmost care was bestowed even during the post operation period.

Lastly I am very proud to mention that I have approached a right and one of the very few Hospitals which extend excellent hospitality”
