Consulted Dr. Thomas George (General Physician) for Outpatient treatment
I do not recommend the doctor
Hoped for better: Wait time
My appointment time 8.30 am, I reached 8.15, when hospital closed. No body is there, except security, 9.30 am I called doctor, he told sorry, then he came 10.30 am, two hours late, the doctor George not ready to hear my problem, never given chance to explain, he asked regular question like yes or no type. Totally I'm disappointed.
Dr. Thomas George replied
Hello Mr Selvam ,
Hope you are aware that Covid 19 lockdown period is still on .1) During this period, some of our poor dedicated staff have to come from far of places, some from even containment zones. Hence they will not be able to come on time not forgetting the fact that their children have to taken care at home during this period 2)All your medical complaints were heard and documented in the letter head 3) You were also examined adequately , which most doctors fail to do during this COVID period 4) The examination findings have been written and documented in the letter head 5) Your medical condition was explained to you more than adequately for almost more than 15 mins- 6) We doctors have certain protocols to be followed during this COVID pandemic period to safeguard your health my health and our healthcare workers health. It’s time for patients to understand the plight of the Doctors and healthcare worker. Even when all are scared and taking shelter in their home, we are in the frontline to serve the community. I don’t think I need to explain more. One has to be more understanding in such situations. Dr Thomas George
