I am 70 years old. In 2004 I had bells palsy with left side facial droop. I had acupuncture done and my face returned back to normal. I am diabetic since the age of 50 years. I am hypertensive. I had sinus post nasal drip for the past 10 years. 3 years ago I started experiencing a burning sensation on both my feet. I was fine until February 2016. Then during a trip to India I experienced shortness of breath after 1 week and lack of energy. I had loss of balance. This did not improve. I was admitted to a private hospital in May 2016 for 1 week. I was treated by a physician and cardiologist. An angiogram was done which showed all was clear. I was discharged and readmitted for vomiting the same day. An MRI confirmed TIA. I was in hospital for another 2 weeks where I got infected with the CRE virus. I lost 20kgs in these 3 weeks. I felt terrible and was not recovering. My doctor then recommended that I see Dr Mohanlall. My health has improved tremendously. Each day has been a new experience. I’m well energised and can now move about very comfortably. Firstly I commend Dr Mohanlall and staff for the wonderful manners and love. Most wonderful very hospitable and loving nature. Keep it up. God’s grace and blessings to you all. There is perfection already. Just continue. You have the grace.

I am a 63 year old female who is diabetic from the age of 35 years. I have hypertension from 50 years old and experience reflux for the past 20 years. I use antacids and suffer from chronic constipation for the last 20 years. In May 2015 I experienced severe dyspnoea at rest and saw a doctor at hospital who did an ECG and angiogram. The angiogram showed that I collateralized and I was put on medication. I experienced tiredness and shortness of breath on mild to moderate exertion. I kept seeing doctors every six months for echo and ECG. In May 2016 I experienced severe shortness of breath and was hospitalized. During the angiogram the doctors had difficulty accessing the femoral arteries and they suggested a bypass surgery for me. I experienced joint pains and pains in the ankle, knees and back. I coughed a lot and had a tight chest. I slept a lot due to fatigue. Before starting ECP I had no quality of life. I could not even walk from my bedroom to the bathroom. After starting ECP I have a renewed lease of life. I feel healthier. I feel happy that I can do daily chores. I can now walk without my walking aid. External Counterpulsation treatment also helped give me an emotional motivation to live my life healthier by exercising and eating healthy .External Counterpulsation benefits are excellent. The staff is pleasant, professional and very supportive. Dr Mohanlall’s expertise impressed me. I am very thankful to Dr Mohanlall for his care and support during my treatment. Two options-for treatment-one with a guest house for accommodation and transport for patient out of Durban or a mobile satellite treatment.
In 2008 had MI at home went to Umhlanga hospital stent inserted .Fine after that .In 2013 had 2nd MI at St Augustine hospital angiogram and quadruple bypass .Fine since then left legs cramp and feels pins and needles. I feel more energetic and have comments from other people that I do not look tired anymore and run down as I used to look. The dark patches on the side of my eyes are also disappearing. I don’t suffer with pin and needles anymore. The staff at the centre is fantastic. They always greet me with a smile and have been courteous and friendly throughout the entire treatment .I felt very comfortable.

I am a 60 year old male who has no background medical history. I was seen by a GP in 2015 who performed an ECG and noticed that I had ectopic heart beats (irregular heartbeats) during a routine examination. I was referred to a cardiologist. I have no family history of cardiac problems, high blood pressure or diabetes. An angiogram was performed on me in July 2015 at St Augustines hospital by a cardiologist. The results revealed triple vessels disease with arrhythmia. I was treated with medication. I managed 7 minutes using the Bruce protocol during stress testing. Feel full of energy. I do not feel stressed. Excellent customer service. Service of this nature should be rendered on Saturday. Doctor should approach air media and present this programme. This should also be for stress.

A lung function test was done on me with a pulmonologist and an echo test with a cardiologist. I had lost my sense of balance after being hospitalised.

I started experiencing chest pains from the age of 19 years. It was a sharp pain that was just there for a minute. I consulted the doctor who sent me to a physician. He did not find anything. The pains were not that severe until the age of 35. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. My chest pains became so severe that I consulted with some cardiologist I was told that it was because of stress and tension and high blood pressure. I decided to go for External Counterpulsation. I am feeling much better than before. For the first two weeks of treatment I felt some chest pains but they were not as severe as before. By the third week I did not feel any chest pains and the blood pressure came down. I can also breathe more easily compared to before. Everyone is so amazing. They always wears their smile each and every day. They are so kind hearted. They are so humble and always welcome you with a smile. They are willing to help all the time. Everything is perfect.
