Dr Nikalji is a God's blessing for us. We love our parents and wish good health for them.But at times, we feel helpless when they suffer. My mom's kidneys were non functional and was on dialysis since last 2-3 yrs.She was blessed to have Dr Nikalji as her nephrologist.Just like god, he played role of a doctor, a son, a friend, gave her confidence and pulled her out of this trauma. This July, she got a healthy kidney, a blessed second life.She is living a much happy and free life.No dialysis means, she can roam around, eat whatever she wants to eat. This blessed life is courtesy Dr Nikalji.we all love him so much.
"Work Hard and let the Success make Noise" Dr. Ravindra Nikalji not only believes practices this in his professional field. 6 Years back we were referred to Dr. Nikalji for my husband's ill health by one of the known Doctor from Navi Mumbai. Earlier we were consulting a diabetologist with regular test, but it was Dr. Nikalji who looked into his medical history and examining the current health situation diagnosed CKD ailment. It was too late to save the kidneys, understanding the time sensitivity immediately recommended for few test followed by Dialysis. Doctor was guiding us throughout the process with AV Fistula so that patient does not undergo lot of inconvenience during dialysis. During these 6 years several time My husband was rushed to the hospital with almost no Hope situations, one such emergency admission had to be treated with open heart surgery. It was Dr. Nikalji who stood with us during all the Ups and downs guiding us and providing the correct treatment on time. Even after open heart surgery we had to rush him to hospital in life threatening situations, Dr. Nikalji being a through professional always kept his patients on priority and attended each call be it doubt clearance / emergency he was always available. Today my husband is leading a normal life he underwent kidney transplant surgery on 5th September 2019. My family remains thankful to Dr. Nikalji for the support and restoring hopes in or lives. I strongly recommend Dr. Nikalji for he treats his patient with friendly approach and nurtures hope and positivity not only to the patient but to the patient's family too.
It was 29th December 2017 and we along with the whole world were waiting for the New Year to begin in 2 days. There was excitement in the air and suddenly my Mom in Law Mrs Surekha Kadam (71 years) staying in a remote village started complaining about severe headache. Me and her son, rushed her to Saharabuddhe Hospital in Panvel. She was treated in ICU for at least 5 days but her BP didn’t fall below 220. We were waiting for the Nephrologists (stranger for us) who visited this hospital on Fridays as mentioned by the doctor there. Read More...
The best doctor I have ever seen in my life. Soft spoken , kind hearted, a true companion for your patients. When ever I called you sir u spoke to me so politely. All your patients saw you as a god for them. U are magically superb sir. Can't express more. Genuinely care for your patients.
Dr Ravindra is an extraordinary doctor, I want to tell that he is an extraordinary human being, thank you sir for showing so much care and concern. We are quite satisfied with Dr Ravbindra's treatment. I liked the sincerity and value of time he gave to my father. If he is busy (on emergency) he made sure to call us back and gave a solution to our problem and queries. Thank you sir for being there whenever I needed guidance and care. As I have gotten in touch with doctor Ravindra Nikalji very closely I can share confidently that he is really the best one. I have witnessed hundreds of patients getting cured under his treatment. Patients who had lost the desire to live because of chronic Kidney disease , when I see them getting cured it's a great feel for both the patients and their family who got cured and deep regards for Dr Ravindra who has given them a new Life. Dr Ravindra not only cure them of disease but also help them come out of depression because of chronic disease. He is excellent Kidney specialist with unmatched skills. It´s for the best of patient interest makes him unique. As a human being I observed him as very humble in his behaviour with staff and patients and their family. His working style is Unique and unmatched
I am extremely blessed to have Dr Ravindra Nikalji as my Nephrologist. About 3 years back an unforeseen incident opened my eyes to the fact that my kidneys were not fully functional and that I needed immediate treatment. I knew Dr Nikalji already as I used to go to him for my yearly checkups. I always found Dr Nikalji extremely calm and he has this unique ability to calm the patient and their relatives with his always positive and assuring attitude. Dr. Nikalji explained to me my situation and through various medicine tried to reverse the effect on my Kidneys. He was very patient with me as I had so many questions and I was also going through a lot emotionally. Being physically present is one thing but being emotionally present changes the game totally. At every stage of treatment, I was fully aware of what I was being treated for. My husband and me are both well read and were aware of the happenings. We even took consultation from some other doctors but their line of treatment we didn’t agree with, so we went back to Dr Nikalji as we felt more comfortable with him and we also trusted him a lot. Doctor in a course of 6 months had also prepared us for the worst and I was advised to go for a transplant.
He was very supportive to both my parents and my family and they also felt very assured in his presence. I had some hiccups post my transplant but with Doctor’s knowledge and everything he was doing for me I had no doubts about my recovery. Its 2 years post trans plant and I started to work almost 2 months post-surgery. I travel extensively for work and Dr Nikalji has helped me restore my life to normal. With his support I don’t feel like I went through a major surgery but he has made it easy for me. I don’t think I can thank him enough for all that he had done and continues to do not just for me but all his patients
नमस्कर रविंद्र निकाळजी डॉक्टर,
मला नेहमी प्रश्न पडायचा की देव म्हणजे कोण?
तुमच्या रुपाने मला त्याचे उत्तर समजले. जो माणसाला पुनर्जन्म देवू शकतो तोच देव आणि माझ्यासाठी तुम्ही देव आहात.
तुम्ही मला किडनी च्या आजाराच्या काळामध्ये जे उपचार केले आणि जो मला व योगिताला मानसिक आधार आंणि आत्मविश्वास दिलात व त्या आजारातून मला बरे केलेत. खर तर मला पुनर्जन्म दिलात, हे फक्त देवच करु शकतो. तुम्ही out of the way जावुन मदत केलीत . तुमच्या रुपाने आज मी जिवंत चालता फिरता देव पाहिला.
आज हक्काने तुमच्याशी बोलू शकतो इतके तुम्ही आपलेसे वाटता. तुमच्या सारखे डॉक्टर भेटणे हे माझ नशीब आहे.
आपले आभार कसे मानावेत हे मला खरच कळत नही.
पुन्हा एकदा आपल्यारुपी देवाच्या चरणी वन्दन
अजय शिवाजी वरे
Date: 4-6-2021 | REVIEW by Mr. Girish S Dhavalikar
Its long association with Dr. Ravindra since 2015-16, till April 2021, which concluded with a successful Kidney Transplant Surgery as Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai, recently.
This was started with our first interaction in May 2015, with symptoms of swelling, vomiting & issues with increased Creatinine levels in blood, when I was referred by Dr. Mrs. Lad after issue with “Bales Palsy”. Dr. Ravindra had immediately attended me with detailed checkup, investigations & tests, which further concluded in the diagnosis of Chronic Kidney Failure, with further advise of Hemodialysis on regular basis.
Actually, for me & my family it was a shock, which totally blocked our further thought process in the view of the identified critical disease.
In this context I would like to describe the exceptional qualities of Dr. Ravindra in digesting the diagnosed facts & psychological support to prepare me & my family for the challenges.
Thorough Explanation of Disease with its Pros & Cons
Being very new to the facts towards the diagnosed issue of CKD, my entire family was in state of shock at initial stages. However, Doctor made it very simple & explanatory to understand the commonness of this problem due to persistent Hyper tensions & Diabetic conditions. This helped us a lot to diffuse the state of shock & I prepared for the next step of further treatments.
Supporting Nature To Have Second Opinion
At initial stages, being very unfamiliar with this disease, I decided to have second opinion. In this development Dr. Ravindra on his own provided references of other senior specialists Dr. Billa & Dr. Kothari, without any hesitation.
Promptness In Providing Medical Information To Other Doctors
In due course I decided to move to my native (Miraj) to have treatment in presence of my close relatives. As per mu requests Dr. Ravindra never hesitated to have a discussion with Dr. Munjappa to update the medical information available during my earlier examinations & related outcomes.
Regular Visits During Hemodialysis & Advises
During Hemodialysis, initially at Apex Centre, Dr’s visits were very frequent with caring words & advises for changes in medicines, diet, water intake, etc. with very close monitoring of BP & other important health features.
Motivation To Register For Transplant Option
During the course of Dialysis, Dr, Ravindra motivated to register for Kidney Transplant with Apollo Hospitals Navi Mumbai to have a better option to get freed from Dialysis with enhanced life expectancy. The advice given was clear & with all pros & cons.
Prompt Availability Over Phone Call
Many times, in cases of some emergencies, Doctor never hesitated to be available over phone call, message to advice immediate course of actions, prescriptions & all other help required.
Continuous Caring Nature During Admission & After Transplant Surgery
Dr. Ravindra was continuously available at hospital, through visits, during my surgery & even after surgery in close contact with me & my family to advise about water intake, food intake, tests, medicines, exercise, etc.
Helping Nature To Provide Most Reliable & Economical Medicine Vendors
At discharge instance from hospital, Dr provided, proactively, names & numbers of medicine vendors, testing vendors to me to have most reliable availability with reasonable rates.
Now, after 50 days after my successful transplant surgery , Doctor proactively inquiries about my health & always guides me about any revisions in the medicines, testing frequencies, etc regularly.
I strongly recommend Dr Ravindra Nikalji sir in case of any issues related to Kidney Function, to have guaranteed, precise & scientific treatments.
