Dr.John's Experience with Medindia Hospitals

The one word that immediately comes to mind when you observe TSC is “organized”. Well you won’t find many people who write down the 44 things which they have to do during the day in a small diary and ticks them off one by one till the last work is completed.
My association with Dr.TSC started 3 months back when I joined MedIndia hospital for a fellowship. As expected sir was an excellent endoscopist. But soon I realized that was just one aspect of him. One thing that impressed me so much was his willingness to teach. He says today’s teacher may be tomorrow’s patient so never hesitate to teach. Some good logic that is! I think he is still an eager student at heart. I was pleasantly surprised seeing his child like enthusiasm on demonstrating a difficult EUS sign.
His pleasant nature and infectious smile puts his patients at ease almost immediately .He hears them out patiently even though the diagnosis may appear mundane to him and explains to the patients their condition by coming to their level. What he says is that “You may have done 1000 Cholecystectomies, but this one is the first for the patient. So spend time with him.”
The man is a perfectionist with an eye for detail and an eye for mistakes as well. Sometimes it can be difficult to work with him as he expects the same level of commitment, hardwork and dedication from each of his employees. All said and done he is a good superior who considers those who work for him as part of his extended family and takes care of them in their hour of need.
He is a self built man who is proud of the long and hard journey he has undertaken in his life. He cherishes everything in this journey, his family, his old mates and yeah his old scopes! I had come to this place to learn advanced endoscopy. But I feel it is just one of the things I would learn from this man.
