    I have had my hernia operated from Dr.Dash last month and yes i had paid rs5000 to hire an anasthesia specialist as the hospital doesnt have an anasthesia specialist.But the surgery was conducted freely without any charges and was successful.Truly he is the best surgeon i had ever visited.I think he had been accused wrongly.
