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.

“They have our best interests at heart – a sentiment that means a great deal to us!”
Recently, my wife had a panic attack and chest pain. We rushed her to Moolchand Emergency. Other than quick medical services and prompt diagnosis, doctor's friendly approach was enough to help calm her anxieties. The entire staff have our best interests at heart – a sentiment that means a great deal to us.
We have been visiting Moolchand Hospital for many years now. In all these years, we have always found the ED doctors and nurses working dedicatedly to give patients quality emergency care. Whenever I or any of my family member need immediate medical attention, we consult Dr. Harmeet. It is really reassuring to know Dr. Harmeet and the ED staff are always ready and poised to provide excellent care to us.

“Skilled doctor with great kindness and respect for his patients!”
I thank all doctors of Moolchand for taking such a good care of my father-in-law "Late Shri Gulab Navaney" during the last month of his life. Their kindness and respect towards my father-in-law was felt by all of us. It is difficult to watch someone struggle through multiple illnesses and become weak day by day. Doctors helped make the process more bearable. I wish Moolchand all the success, happiness and glory.
