What I'd like to tell my patients
It was any other day for the aspiring architect who dropped his sister off to college. But while he was crossing the road, a speeding truck crashed into him. The impact of the collision was so intense that he fell unconscious on the road and was drenched in a pool of blood. The severely injured man was immediately rushed to Moolchand ED, and we were able to save his life.
Each year we handle 20,000+ emergency cases and successfully save lives of numerous individuals who have sustained traumatic injuries or are facing acute medical conditions. I attribute this huge success to my efficient ED team who adhere to time-effective protocols competently and demonstrate quick decision making in ED’s high pressured environment.
There is a “Golden Hour” between life and death, where we should know what to do, how to save the life of our patient. Proficient in providing medical care as well as the surgical treatment in case of emergency, my rapid response team and I ensure efficient emergency care for every patient who walks in our doors. We leave no stone unturned in providing the best services in the shortest time possible.
“Exceptional care by emergency doctors who makes you feel very comfortable and reassured!”
Moolchand is all I can think of when faced with a medical emergency. My mother, daughter and I have been visiting Moolchand for several years now and the doctors have always provided the absolute best care, and we received the best advice and treatment during every visit and for every issue.
If you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is encyclopedic, who treats the whole person and takes the time to be caring even while maintaining a very efficient emergency department, then Dr. Harmeet is someone you should consider visiting.
Mother of Samir Kuckreja
“A note from a grateful heart!”
This is to record our family’s gratitude to the team at Moolchand for taking such good care of my mother, Mrs Meera Kuckreja who was brought there on October 29th, 2017 in a very critical and urgent condition. Thanks to your entire team of Moolchand doctors and the staff who didn’t hesitate going an extra mile to ensure the best care for my mother. I would recommend Moolchand Hospital to anyone who wants quality healthcare. Her heart rate and BP were sinking. In the ED, Dr. Harmeet Singh quickly diagnosed that her condition was due to the malfunctioning of her pacemaker.The team of competent ED doctors managed to stabilize her heart rate and BP. In the meantime, they also coordinated with the cardiac doctor who put in a temporary pacemaker successfully. My mother stayed in the ICU for one day. The crisis was soon over and she was saved. All in all, it was one of those “once in a lifetime” experiences. This made me and my family feel a special bond with Moolchand due to its unabated commitment to nurture medical excellence and warm patient-centric approach.
“Very impressed by the quick and best medical care!”
I visited Moolchand Emergency Department along with my wife for the first time. My wife was suffering from severe dehydration and our regular doctor had suggested to get her admitted in emergency department for few hours. I immediately rushed to emergency department where the Emergency team helped me in all respects. They made sure that my wife gets proper treatment and care while she was there. Dr. Singh himself visited many times during those 4-5 hours to check if Suman's condition was improving or not.
I sincerely appreciate Dr. Singh and his courteous staff for their valuable service and thorough job. Our experience at Moolchand was the best we have ever encountered. We are certainly very impressed!
