Dr. Ashwani Mehta is an expert cardiologist and an equally great human being. Can’t tell or express how much I’m thankful to him. He has done a lot in helping in my fathers treatment. Always available to advise, talk and provide any kind of help. Arranged almost everything on his own, I don’t think without the help of Dr. Ashwani Mehta, we could have done anything to save my fathers life. I can only say a big Thank you sir for doing everything for us.

First of all I am thankful to God for sending such kind a human, who is full with humanity, ability, sincerety. Don't know how many person get their life by the hand of Dr. Ashwani Mehta. I realise that no unnecessary testing and unnecessary medicines advice to the patient. Dr. Mehta know very well how to treat different type of patients, mostly people get half releif in the very first visit. Dr. Mehta is very soft spoken and every time I see them in smiling face which relief patients stress and pain. My grandmother and father save their life due to Dr. Mehta only. We heard their name in the kanpur then we come to them and got the positive treatment. Kindness and humanity is their extra ability. I am very much thankful to Dr. Mehta because I got my grand maa and father only because of Dr. Mehta
