Say About Us
Mrs. Anjali Basrur
My name is Anjali Basrur. I heard about Dr Anoosha from a friend of mine whose father was diabetic. Dr Anoosha was his doctor ,my friend was very happy the way her father got the treatment, Dr. Anoosha made a diet chart for her father who was on insulin and now because of her treatment he came on pills. I being a diabetic patient with sugar level more than 400, got a ray of hope and was lucky enough to get an appointment, after meeting the doctor half of my fear vanished and her talks, brought a confidence in me. After a month when I went for a checkup it was a miracle my sugar level was 115. I want to say one more incident one medicine prescribed was not available when I told her she called the MR to do the needful. I believe she is most humble Diabetologist. I have and will recommend her for my friends and relatives.

Mr. Govindaraddi Yerabandi
Proudly speaking, first of all I can say she is "VERY GOOD HUMAN BEING & Very good Diabetologist, many a times I have observed that your interaction with patient is truthful. Since my first visit as a patient I felt I am interacting with family person. You advice and address her patients problems peaceful then giving treatment. During pandemic your reaction was great and your help was incredible. When ever I was sending my weekly blood sugar levels report to you mam, you had reacted to my requests and given me necessary guidance about dos & don'ts which was very helpful to me. When ever contacted you through WhatsApp immediately, you have given proper guidance. Further I am thankful for the opportunity given me to say something in this platform. Once again thank you MADAM
Dear ma'am, My Heartfelt gratitude to you, for the service you render to your patients. My father(Basavraj Pattanshetti) use to feel very happy and cared, the way you used to treat him in his sunset years. We have seen many doctors in our lives, but didn't find anyone having patience and care that you show towards your patients. You are our first point of contact whenever there is a need. My father passed away last year due to heart problems, but he remembered you a lot during those last days remembering how you helped him and listened to every bit of his symptom and remembered how you relieve him from tiniest of his problem. May his blessings be always on you and your family.
Mr Ravindra Hunagund
True friend in Doctor role!! My journey had started from severe Diabetic (2010) to till November 2021, as same condition as it was before. In spite of having so many medicines, no of Doctors visits, many advices from many well-wishers and huge amount of savings / earnings spent, there was no sign of improvement. Due to the family history & other unavoidable circumstances, I lost hope to become Diabetic free till November last year. One of my neighbours (who had gone through critical Diabetic complications since many years) has become Diabetes free and leading a healthy life since last year. Inspired with this treatment, I had happened to meet Dr.Anoosha P. Bhandarkar, Diabetologist at SDM hospital Dharwad last year. Then, Miracles started happening. Everything was getting reversed slowly. I have started gaining confidence and new hopes of normal life!!My reading drastically came down from 350 to 200 within 10 days and it had reached below 150 in next 1 month. This helped me to take a new assignment again in abroad. Now, I am very happy that I am maintaining normal readings with her advice & treatment.
Mr Ravindra Hunagund
Dr. Anoosha is amazing & very talented Doctor. First of all, the amount of time she spends with each patient, lot of care, healthy advice & tips including reminders, everything is impressive. She is a true friend in the Doctor role!! Already my Parents & other family members are also getting very good control of Diabetes with least medicines. My references are too reaching her. Now, I have travelled to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia where hospitals and costs of Medicines are too high and moreover getting friendly Doctor is very difficult. Now, she has started online teleconsultation platform to treat outside patients. So, this is really going to be another milestone to both people like me who stay outside of Hubli & for people across the world to reach our doctor any time we need Many, many thanks to Dr.Anoosha P. Bhandarkar & her dedicated team to bringing new hopes in to my life and many others lives too. Prayers & best wishes to Dr. Anoosha P. Bhandarkar to this platform & in her all future accomplishments.

Unusual swelling, irritation, redness, and odors from one or both feet are also common early symptoms. The most visible sign of a serious foot ulcer is black tissue or called eschar surrounding the ulcer. This forms because of an absence of healthy blood flow to the area around the ulcer. Partial or complete gangrene, which refers to tissue death due to infections, can appear around the ulcer. In this case, odorous discharge, pain, and numbness can occur. Signs of foot ulcers are not always obvious. Sometimes, you won't even show symptoms of ulcers until the ulcer has become infected. Consult a Diabetologist or a Podiatrist, if you begin to see any skin discoloration, especially tissue that has turned black, or feel any pain around an area that appears callused or irritated. A well qualified Diabetologist will likely identify the seriousness of your ulcer.
