Dr. Frank Anthony, Minister of Health and the entire health fraternity express our profound sympathy to the family, friends, colleagues and patients of Dr. Seepersaud Chatterdeo who passed away early this morning.

He became one of the leading pediatrician in the country.
Statement from Prominent Government Official, Mr. Sase Gunraj
Earlier today, I received the devastating news that this noble soul has been called to the great beyond.
Many may know him as a Pediatrician and he executed that task excellently, including to my children from birth to present. He would take a call at 2am with the same cheerful glee as ever and would always help, no matter what the complaint was. You could even send him a picture of a soiled diaper and he’d willingly accept and advise.
I’ve known him long before he was a doctor and his pleasant demeanor made every interaction meaningful. When we later discovered that we were related, it only solidified our relationship.
Above all this, we shared a love for older Bollywood music. We would exchange music at the strangest times and discuss it, to our mutual joy.
This is a blow to all of us who have benefited from his presence, both personally and professionally. Our country has lost a competent patriot. I have lost a friend and brother.
To his family, his wife Indra, sister Molly and his children, my heartfelt condolences.
Walk good Chats…phir milenge!
Statement from the Mayor of Georgetown, Mr. Ubraj Narine
Words cannot express the shock and feeling of loss that overcame me when I received news on the passing of Dr. Seepersaud Chatterdeo. He was a close family friend and Doctor.
To his family, know that I mourn with you and I pray for your strength through this painful loss.
Please accept my heartfelt condolences.
