What he/she says
My Sister is diagnosed with CML in 2008, we took treatment in gwalior however her disease progressed over the last couple of years and we Consulted Dr Gupta in May 2017. She was diagnosed with CML in advanced stage and her further treatment included Chemo, Medicine followed by allogenic bone marrow transplant (allo BMT). Dr Gupta counselled us about the current status of the disease and encouraged us to start treatment immediately. We are taking treatment from Dr Gupta for last 6 months and my sister’s condition has improved a lot. She is currently in the middle of transplant. I want to share our experience with stem cell donation required in allo BMT where stem cells are taken from the healthy donor who is genetically matched with the patient preferably sibling, or other family member. If there is no match in the family then outside person with matched HLA tissues.
Few things we found good about Dr Gupta which might help other’s to decide:
1. Dr Gupta spent lot of time understanding the nature of the disease, past-history, medication etc and then came up with future course of action. He don’t need to flip through files across visits for anything as he remember. Very patient-centric approach.
2. He constantly says that it is your body that fight the disease for longer time and medicines are there to only help your body. He stresses a lot on healthy diet, exercise and will power to fight the disease.
3. If things are not good he first comforts the patient, family before slowly breaking the news and also suggest further course of treatment.
