Review by Dr P. P. Chandrachoodan Wednesday 02 January, 2013
I am retired R&D professional and have faith in the near to nature approach followed in Ayurvedic and Herbal Medicines and also the time tested Ayurvedic Treatment Process.
At this hospital I have unparalle experiences:

1.The diagnosis by Naadi done by Dr Ramakrishnan which revealed my problems as due to acidity.
2. Th quality of the Medicines are unique.
3. The Doctor is very soothing and interactive, which is giving a lot of confidence to me, as an outpatient located in Mumbai.
4. I had often doubts about the foods that are permissible or otherwise and the Doctor was very considerate in clearing my doubts.
5. In my experience, this is an excellent facility, from all points of views.
6. I wish them great healing times and satisfaction in the service of the sufferings.
7. I pray for them all.

Guys, I was suffering with ulcerative colitics disease for 2 years I tried english medicines but not completely cured. After consuming this Ayurveda medicine (Kasayam etc..) from Dr.Mahadeva Iyer it is completly cured. Last 4 years I don't have any complaint. Now a days I take 1 Mesacol 400mg tablet once in 3 days.I strongly recommend Sri Sarada Ayurvedic Hospital for ulcerative colitics- soban -nagercoil

Review by Karthik G Tuesday 29 November, 2011
I took a treatment at this hospital in Nov 2011 for 3 weeks. Dr Mahadevan did an extensive Diagnostics on my condition. Incidentally, I found the prognosis for my elbow pain, which has been bothering for a year. My neck pain has reduced by 50% and back pain has reduced by 80%. Dr. Mahadevan is a well known Physician in the Ayurveda field. The clinical expertise of the Physicians at this Center is Top Notch. Since the Treatment Center is in a Small Village, the facilities might be sub-par when Compared to other Centers in the City.

Dr.Mahadevan is a Genius. There are just handful of Doctors like him in India. Excellent doctor with vast Knowledge of even Allopathic medicines and treatments. By just seeing one's nadi he correctly Diagonises a patient's Problem.

Review by Monday 03 January, 2011
It was about 20 years ago my friend Shri.C.Nadaraja brought his 7years old daughter from Nasik to Dr.Y.Mahadeva Iyer's Sri Sarada Ayurvedic Hospital at Derisanamcope for treatment. The child was unable to walk and the doctors in the Ruby Medical Hospital in Pune suggested surgical treatment . But my friend never wanted his girl child to suffer throughout her life due to surgical treatment and the child was carried from Nasik to Nagerkovil and was admitted in Dr.Mahadeva Iyers Ayurveda Hospital for treatment and it was a wonder when we at Chennai heard the news that Mr.Nadaraja's child started running after getting treatment for only 21 days thanks to the treatment the child got from Dr.Y.Mahadeva Iyers Sri.Sarada Ayurvdic Hospital!
In my own case also I owe a great deal of gratitude throughout life to Dr. Mahadevan for having treated me and cured the back pain I had for the last one decade.
