    Dr. Prashant Sukharamwala performed a Whipple procedure on me January 26th 2017 at St. Joseph Hospital in Tampa FL. He was highly recommended and he exceeded my expectation in every way. He is the best surgeon for Whipple in the USA. Dr. Prashant Sukharamwala saved my life with God’s help! He is compassionate, kind and provided all the information before and after surgery. Thank you Dr. Prashant! George Perneczky, Riverview, Florida

    Dr. Sukharamwala is a wonderful surgeon who operated on me and gave me a new lease on life. He made a very stressful time in my life go smoothly and calm. He explained everything completely to me and also took the time to explain to my daughter who was very worried. I could not ask for a better surgeon and am grateful for everything he has done for me. He is not only a fantastic surgeon but a great bed side manner.

    in St Petersburg, FL |
    My case was very complicated and began a year before Dr. Sukharamwala saw me. Against long odds, he agreed to do the surgery necessary to keep me alive. From the beginning, he was very caring and patiently explained everything not only to me but to my family. He kept us informed and tirelessly answered our questions long after the surgery. Dr. Sukharamwala is an excellent surgeon and a very caring person and I would recommend him wholeheartedly!

    Mi nombre es Jose Morales-Flores Tuve la fortuna de ser atendido por el Doctor Prashant Sukharamwala es un Angel de la salud. Las palabras nunca seran suficiente para agradecerle. Me opero un tumor en el pancreas ahora me siento muy bien no he vuelto a padecer de hipoclusemia, gracias por estar pendiente antes y despues de mi operacion nunca olvidare lo bien que se porto conmigo.

    I would most definitely recommend this doctor to others because he is an amazingly talented doctor. He performed a surgery on my father because of a tumor he had on his pancreas. Thanks to him my father can now lead a normal life. He is so kind and caring. While he was performing the surgery he made sure to call and give us updates. He answered any questions I had with diligences. I really appreciate everything he has done for my father. This doctor is more than outstanding.

    Dr Sukharamwala was very caring. He never made us feel rushed, gave ample time and we felt satisfied with his consultation. He did a major operation through one small key hole laparoscopy. Only one of the few in nation who does single site laparoscopy.
