  1. I am very impressed by his simplicity and brilliance. His many appearances on CNN benefit viewers, mainly through his wide range of knowledge in medicine, and his general concerns on the well being of people. Doctor Sanjay Gupta has established himself as a household name in medicine and journalism, and is clearly a celebrity figure around the world. His call to duty is beyond compare. Thank you doctor for your commitment to the great cause of serving our fellow humans.

  2. I am Nigerian. I follow Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN. And I think he is one of the most-informed Health Correspondents on tv. He is also an outstanding neurosurgeon. He is calm, and easy to understand. I’m glad he has won several awards for his work. I am so proud of this guy. Such unassuming doctor. I have followed him on this Covid-19 pandemic and CNN is lucky to have such a wonderful, articulate and well-informed person handle their health topics. God bless you, Sanjay. Keep up the good work.

  3. my self I am retired pathologist,Sanjay Gupta is a very very brilliant surgeon, some times he speaks from his heart make you cry, god bless Sanjay I am 75 years old retired pathologist graduate from manhattan medical school

  4. I watched Dr Sanjay on CNN since the Pandemic. He is easy to understand whenever he speak on health topic. I love his humbleness and sure he is love by many. Keep up the good work Dr Sanjay and may the good Lord continue to blessed you.

  5. I think he’s always against our president and is too negative about the Coronavirus. And that’s because he works for cnn and cnn hates trump.

    • You obviously are a Trump fan whether he does his job correctly or incorrectly. Personally I have nothing against trump, however he is not a leader he is a real estate business man with no compassion and skills to lead the people of the USA.

    • Sorry you lost Steve

      Trump wasn’t a President, he was an authoritarian dictator who will soon be incarcerated for life

      Elections have consequences

      It is what it is

  6. I find Dr Sanjay Gupta brings a calm, considerate, intelligence to these Pandemic times. Which quite honestly is a relief to hear someone with compassion, thoughtfulness and understanding who provides straightforward information that is relevant and apolitical.
    I am Canadian and stay up on all the worlds news as this Pandemic is a global issue. It will take all of us globally doing our part to beat this virus. Having more intelligence sharing and more kindness to our neighbours would be best.

    • I came to University of Michigan in January 1973 at the age of 22 from Bangladesh. I had a tuition scholarship and $26 with me. Got got my BA and MA from U of M. I am professor at a community college. I have one daughter and she was high school valedictorian, got her BS degree in engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Attended med school at University of Kentucky, internal medicine residency at university of Miami, fellowship in Endocrinology at university of Virginia. Now works for Ochsner hospital at New Orleans. She was born in Indianapolis in 1987 and I took her back to Bangladesh many time to show her roots. The video of Dr. Gupta brought all those memories back when I took my daughter to my village home,the house where my father and mother were born, my childhood schools and the places and houses we lived in ( my father was a civil service officer ans transferred to a new city every three years).

  7. Class personified, example of what we can become if we believe in ourselves. A wise calming voice amidst the chaotic storm. Maria Elena Bernal de Barre

  8. Plain and simple, Sanjay is a hero of mine! Intelligent, seemingly compassionate; I always look forward to his segments on television. Please always be safe…..

  9. I’d love to see Dr. Gupta participate in the next ( Biden) administration, but I think that his expertise, intellect and skills obviously allow him to actually help individuals with dire medical prognoses. 3D
