A lady of 60 years came to our OPD 2 weeks ago with history of both ear itching on/off for last 1 ½-2 years. She had visited many centers outside and treated with multiple oral and topical medications without any relief. On examination she didn’t have any significant findings except some dry scales over the canal. She was treated with just a topical ointment without any oral medications. She was not convinced initially with the type of medication provided, but after good counseling she looked satisfied. Two weeks later, today she came to OPD with a big smile in her face. She was relieved from her symptoms. She is so happy that she says that she’ll now advertise every one with ear problem to visit only this center and not go anywhere else. This is all due to the quality of our service in terms of infrastructure, equipment and hospitality.

28th March 2016

38years Male postop Client came from Rolpa which is 18 hours journey by public bus, he came with infection on the right ear which was operated on 2014 in Rolpa but his hearing is better after operation. After all examination the doctor suggested him for revision on right ear to make dry and better hearing.
He agreed for surgery but he was alone, and it is impossible to call his family members to Pokhara from Rolpa, because of at home small children, goat, chicken and farm. He tried to find someone to look after but could not found any relative, so we consider his surgery without any family members and relative, and we arranged to look after him after surgery. If client’s dos not have relative and family members it is impossible to do surgery at other hospital but we did because according to INF value is hope and which is impossible to make possible.
The client is fine and feeling grateful with doctors and staff.
