Our Happy Patients

I was an urgent referral from my Interventional Cardiologist Warwick Jaffe and Peter carried out a triple coronary bypass within 3 days of referral  which was an excellent service. Following my discharge from Mercy Hospital, I immediately developed pneumonia and required admission to Ward 42 of Auckland Hospital for several weeks to resolve the pneumonia and then Peter had to carry out further open heart surgery to repair and restore…

I was impressed with the team at Mercy Ascot. Nurses, Surgeon, Anesthetist, everyone, who only had one objective, trying to help me through to being well again. I did not feel like, a number, somebody else needed my bed, pushing me home, at any time of my stay. I was properly informed before my operation all the things it included and what may happen. The food was excellent, Breakfast, Lunch…

  We are truly indebted to Sweety and Mr. Nand for taking such good care of us both, administratively and medically, particularly as the past few weeks have been quite hectic. We know that you both went beyond the call of duty, so to speak, to give my brother the best care possible. Lily

3 years ago Dr Parma Nand saved my life. I am 73 years old and my Mechanical Aortic valve is ticking away perfectly. I am still teaching dancing and keeping fit. This wonderfully skilled surgeon has given me life at a premium and I am so very grateful to him. Blessings forever.
Blessings forever
We studied together at Labasa College in Fiji. Little did I know that this form mate of mine will save my life one day. Dr Parma did my heart bypass in December 2004. The best heart specialist I know. You are in good hands with him.

Thank you for giving me a second chance at life doctor nand. You made me feel very comfortable and I am grateful to you and your kindness. I was told my case was very complex but you were confident and the surgery went as well as it could.
Second Chance
I am a 72 year old woman who needed a mitral valve repair. It was a no brainer in choosing Dr. Nand to do the operation. Once you see his 5 star ratings, how could one go wrong? We were also aware of the philanthropic work he does each year in Fiji. It has been almost 4 months since my surgery & I couldn't be more pleased. I'm back to…
