The doctor who treated Sangakkara, Dr Shridhar Deshmukh, physician and intensivist at Ruby Hall Clinic, said that a doctor had visited Sangakkara at home when he complained of high-grade fever with chills, headache, and irritable bowels. “He was found to be dehydrated and having a fever of 103 degrees Fahrenheit.

Additionally, I would also like to thank Dr Deshmukh and his team who were immensely capable, professional and incredible. Every single aspect was looked into and I felt safe and secure knowing that I was in such good hands. I am leaving with abiding memories of everyone here at Ruby Hall Clinic and I am very grateful to them for my return to health.”
