Dr. Nanavati's Philosophy of Patient Care in his own words: 

"Treat every patient as if they were your own family member."

"If I cannot provide the most advanced therapy, I will find someone eminently qualified who will."

"The smile on a patient's face is my greatest reward." 

"If you don't need the procedure, I'm not going to order it." 

"The best patient is the informed patient."
