When you all congratulate this man Dr. Cherian for all that he has done for people with heart problems, I am sorry to state that I lost my close friend because of the negligence of the doctors in the Frontier Lifeline Hospital in 2007 when Dr. Cherian was abroad.
India is taking the right steps to become a major hub in Medical Tourism. Gujarat Health City is another such idea that is in planning stage.
If we can market Hospitals well on Medical Tourism portals like Placidway (USA based), Kosansh(India based) it can make a huge difference because most patients nowadays use Internet to search for treatment opions.

Besides your cardiac repairing / servicing / conditioning activities, you are repairing the atmosphere too by planting green plants. Ideally Siddha and Ayurveda people should think of this activity. They seems to be so busy with something else and so you have taken up this activity doctor. We feel proud of you ! By the way, may we know why the TN state health minister Mr.MRK Panneerselvam does not visit this function? (while central health minister is on)
There is no question about the Professional capabilities of these Docs/Surgeons in India. But, one hopes that the ethics will improve. There are perceptions that surgeries are prescribed and conducted even if not necessary at all or unnecessary immediately. There are also perceptions that all kinds of tests are prescribed frequently (many that are not necessary) and that too at labs recommended by the Docs. It is perceived that the Heart Surgery has now become an Industry and is being treated as a business rather than service. It is time that top names in the field take action to ensure that the fair name of Medicine/Health is not tarnished and people's faith in them remains.
All doctors should be involved in environmental issues

I hope Dr Cherian will get all doctors involved in environmental issues. They should take a lead in educating the public on keeping the environment clean by not defecating in public places, government employees not dumping waste along canals and rivers etc. They shuld serve as the eyes of the public and the government to expose any anomalies in their surroundings.
