I had penile implant surgery at Fortis Escorts, under Dr. Ashish Sabharwal’s care. He is one of the best doctors and so talented! His experience and skills are competitive to the doctors here in America. Although, the hospital does not have very high standard of facilities, like some other hospitals in Delhi, I chose to have my surgery with Dr. Ashish. I am happy with the results.
