Cyril Francis

Lisie hospital is having one of the best pediatric department, where I consulted Dr. Edwin Francis, Dr. Annu, Dr. Sunil for my Kid. He is having one the complex heart issues, As of now, 2 Surgeries done. Prior to this, I have gone to another hospital, but they don't have a facility to treat this particular case and they directed me to Lisie Hospital. The cost of the treatment is comparabilly very very cheap with other hospitals. All the nurses there were very friendly and they give special care to each patient especially paediatric OP. I have spent nearly 18 days at Lisie hospital, I would really recommend this hospital for heart-related issue since they are in the top 2 position in India. This hospital is really recommended for the middle class, lower-class families since the cost are really affordable.

Patient Testimonials

I am glad to inform you that we had a very comfortable experience at Lisie Hospital during the cardiac surgery of my nephew, Aahil P, M / 3 yrs, OPD No. 2528461, RBSK Case No.1534. Meanwhile, we take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Sunil G S, Dr. Edwin Francis, other medical team members, Coordinator Ms. Jitha and all staff members of Lisie Hospital for the good care and hospitality provided to us. We had heard a very good opinion about your hospital, so we preferred to come there all the way from Palakkad and things what we heard were very much true. The facilities were indeed of very high class quality. The approach of each and every member of your staff had been very polite, my salute to all. The only problem which we faced was for vehicle parking, which was very difficult sometimes, otherwise, all other things were really very, very fine. My nephew is now doing well and we all are very happy. May Almighty Bless you all. With best wishes

I am pleased to let you know that the care recieved by my father Mr.Stephen M.V aged 65 yrs,in Your hospital was excellent .My father was tested covid positive and got hospitalised in one of the reputed hospitals in Eranakulam where he revieved no proper care.We were really upset about the same and his condition was deteriorated.Therefore, we shifted him to Lisie Hospital.I must say that the timely consultation & proper line of treatment of the Lisie Hospital staff saved the life of my father.He was well taken care during the hospitalisation.Despite of the busy schedules,Doctors & nurses were prompt in delivering the care.They were always ready to help the patient and support the family in whatever ways possible.As we were at home and concerned about our father, we were facilitated with a video call where we could see our father and ask him about his condition.It was really apprecitable.Moreover, The Doctors kept us updated through phone calls about the plan of care on a daily basis.All over, myself and the entire family of ours are greatful to the hospital crew for the wonderful care recieved for our father.I highly recommend this institution to anyone who is in need of hospitalisation and care.A big Salute to all the wonderful staff of Lisie Hospital management !!!
