Dr Rajesh Saxena

Ganga Prem Hospice

Dr Rajesh Saxena

Dr Rajesh Saxena is one of the two Ganga Prem Hospice doctors who specialize in gynaecology. Having been a resident and a much-experienced doctor of Rishikesh for thirty years, Dr Saxena was looking to take a break from her busy private practice clinic when she came to know of the Ganga Prem Hospice cancer clinic. Dr Saxena first came to the Hospice clinic as a volunteer but then was asked to become one of the Hospice's consulting gynaecologists, to which she readily agreed.

In her private practice, Dr Saxena would see cancer patients on several occasions. "Generally, there were patients of breast, cervix and uterine cancer who would come from all over Garhwal. Then there were no cancer treatment or consultation facilties at all in Rishikesh and we would refer patients to Chandigarh for treatment," says Dr Saxena. Now, Dr Saxena's son and daughter-in-law, who are also medical professionals, run a diagnostic centre and clinic and this gives Dr Saxena more time to be on her own and work at her own pace.

"The Ganga Prem Hospice clinic experience has been nice. Patients with cancer malignancy as well as other disease's patients get free of charge consultation which is very useful," says Dr Saxena.

The 73-year old gynaecologist comes from a family of doctors. Her father was a doctor based in Rishikesh while Dr Saxena spent her initial years of work in Solan, Himachal Pradesh where she was with the Central Health Services. "When I settled in Rishikesh, I worked day and night at my clinic at Triveni Ghat. We have seen many cancer patients and now with modern diagnostic facilities, we see that patients are more aware of their condition and disease and want to get it treated," says Dr Saxena.

In her leisure time, the septuagenarian doctor likes to read and makes it a point to keep herself physically fit by exercising twice a day.
