My friend has been suffering from ear problems for many years and took treatment for his ear problems in various hospitals in Chennai, Delhi, Guwahati, U.P. and Arunachal Pradesh. Even after treatment for long years and in various hospitals, his partial heart loss of the left ear never improved or regained. Finally, Dr. From our native state, I.e Arunachal, suggested my friend to go for cochlear implantation and referred me to Dr. Rao ENT international Hospital Kukatpally, Hyderabad. By the Grace of God and Dr Shree Mam’s blessing, the operation was successful. The medical staff behaved in good manners even though we were facing a bit of a problem in conversation as their native language is Telugu. Besides the linguistic problem in a conversation with a few staff members, everything is perfect. Anyone Suffering from the same ear problems can consult this hospital without any doubt. Lastly, thank you, Dr. Shree man and other hospital staff for your great hospitality. We will never forget your kindness
