"An Apple a day keeps the Doctor Away, "
A very well heard and said Quote , but when you meet a Doctor Like Doctor Ashwani Mehta You change your mind and say
“When the Doctor is cute forget the Fruit ” 🙂
Friends, I always try to introduce you all , with good Souls who are “Being Human ,being a Human “, and those who inspires us in life.
One such figure, in the field of medical profession, is Dr. Ashwini Mehta.
“दिल का डॉक्टर” … मर्ज़ भी दिल का , एक ऐसा डॉक्टर जिसे मिलकर ही मर्ज़ भाग जाये , पर ठीक होने का मन ना करे 🙂 🙂
A Doctor who cures unhealthy Heart and leaves a beautiful mark on the Patient’s heart 🙂
At a very young age with his hard work , he has achieved a lot. He is just 45 , The degree of doctor is indeed an achievement, but what the achievement to be cherished is, his consistency at providing a low-cost and relevant diagnosis.
Dr. Ashwani Mehta, MD, DM,
Presently working as Senior Consultant Cardiologist at
” Sir Ganga Ram Hospital , New Delhi” since June 1999 .He is Actively involved in practicing Comprehensive cardiology which includes non-invasive, invasive and Clinical Cardiology.
He also took care of Honorable President Of INDIA when he was admitted SGRH in 2001 & Ms.Sonia Gandhi in 2008.
At present also involved in Teaching, taking care of various clinical trials and Cardiac Transplant Programme.
These are just a few achievements, if I start describing ,even ten posts of mine will not be enough .
He is always ready to treat his patients at any hour of the day or Night, I was surprised to see him working almost seventeen hours a day with a big smile growing bigger and bigger with the Sun setting ,with no regret, no pressure, and no frustration.
If you meet any of his patients, everyone will agree that his smile and instant assurance is what makes them feel 50% already recovered, and the family members of the patients are strictly advised to call anytime any hour when needed, without a second thought and astonishingly he attends all, even when he is in the OT , his assistant will keep the notings and as soon as he is out, he responds back , then and there.
I had the occasion of meeting him when my father-in-law suffered a silent heart attack. We rushed to him ,he did ECG and all relevant test. We were sure that he would admit him then only , but to the contrary, he assured him that nothing was to be worried. He said with a smile that ‘who said you, Sir, that you had a major problem? Go home, relax, we meet later, and the Old patient was 50% better instantly, his anxiety, which was causing more trouble, vanished in thin air. We were also relieved for the moment. Though he underwent angioplasty later, but the behavior of the doctor was always healing. I have seen him coming out of the OT after surgery , and settling down in no minute, meeting the next patient with utmost patience and attention without showing any pressure or stress dealt .
It wouldn’t be any exaggeration if I call him God for his Patients , he is the savior, a boon and a blessing to his patients .
His most of the weekends go as Social work , he treats free to the patients who are not able to Pay, even for the surgeries .
Not only this but after staying and practicing in the US, and seeing the World he preferred coming back to his Motherland and serve the Country . Those patients who do not understand English he helps them in their language and even by writing the prescription in Hindi. He is associated with many NGO’s
and has the membership at
- Cardiological Society of India
- Association Of Physicians Of India
- National Medical Organisation
- Delhi Diabetic Association
- Delhi Diabetic Forum
- Delhi Medical Association
- Delhi Cardiological Society
- India International Centre

He and his Wife believes touching feet and-and showing gratitude to the elder’s nurtures sanskara in us . I might keep on praising him more and more as my experience with him is a wonderful one. A smiling Doctor always ready to help in all ways always . :):)
My purpose is not showering praise on anyone specific ,but trying to bring in light the good work done by the people around us, whenever I become aware of and at the same time, I wish to convey that we should not have predetermined Notion towards any professional like Doctors who do not work for money but for service to Mankind .
