What People Are Saying About Dr. Nandi
“Hi young man, I just watched your show about single mothers and what I love most about your show is that in this day and age most shows would have turned this subject to the lowest common denominator by having a honey boo boo type mother representing the topic. Your show put before us a viable decent young lady to promote the topic! Great show!”
“Dr. Nandi is one of those rare beings who combines high intelligence, big heart, practical suggestions, and a deep moral commitment to helping others. Watching him tape four shows over the course of a single day – a real trial by fire for anyone – and seeing his patience, good humor, and caring in a very complicated and stressful situation showed that he is also one of those rare beings who truly walks his talk. It was an honor and inspiration to participate in the Ask Dr. Nandi show!”

“Merriam Webster defines hero as, “a person who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities and a person who is greatly admired”. Dr. Partha Nandi is the epitome of a #HealthHero whom shares his knowledge to empower the masses to sustain a healthy lifestyle. I became acquainted with the works of Dr. Nandi through the Ask Dr. Nandi TV Show social media postings. The show is not the mundane but distinct amongst others in the industry; though the host is conveying true compassion and spirituality which are key components to happiness and better health.
I have the honor of being a guest on the Ask Dr. Nandi Show discussing, “Menopausal Solutions” and overly pleased with the support afforded to me but was most impressed with the harmonious atmosphere amongst the entire crew which speaks volumes about the man leading it all. Through all the accolades spoken on the behalf of Dr. Nandi it must be noted that in Kali he has a true gem. Groucho Marx said it best and it is exemplified, “Behind every successful man is a woman, and behind her is his wife.
Dr. Nandi continue to soar and allowing the Ask Dr. Nandi TV Show to serve as a platform for your voice to bring healthy happiness to the world. Abundant blessings to you all!”
