Dr. Sachin Shah is the best and most highly experienced paediatrician in Pune. My younger daughter is a patient of Dr. Sachin Shah for the past 4 years. He clearly explains the medical procedure for the disease and his treatment is good. He is easily approachable. We always had a good experience visiting Surya Mother and child care Hospital. we recommended Dr. Sachin Shah to our friends and their experience was also good. we always had positive vibes with him. We thank him a million and Surya Hospital for care given to my daughter

We admitted our son in Surya hospital under Dr.Sachin Shah sir.. Not only highly skilled, efficient and knowledgeable, he has great people connect and his presence everyday in ICU counselling room or ward room made us get through the difficult situations with positive mindset.. His treatment throughout 3 weeks were well updated and monitored with great team of doctors he had.. he makes sure he is updated with every progress time to time so there was no delay in any decision making.. Even the surgery decision was explained to us in detail and he recommended the best surgeon Dr. Dasmit Singh to us, post op recovery was rightly monitored and regularly checked by him.. Be it holiday or weekend, Dr.Shah regularly visited in fact all the patients.. His wise words and expert treatment is commendable.. We are forever grateful to you Dr.Shah sir.. Thank you so much! Undoubtedly you are the best! - Arti and Basishtha Senapati
