I went to Dr. Anil Patil after I twisted my knee. I found out about him through online search, so did not have the benefit of the confidence that comes with going to a doctor referred by someone. I however placed my trust in the reviews and went to him with an open mind.
I am happy to say that my experience has been overwhelmingly positive with him. He devoted sufficient time for listening to me, doing the examination/assessment and finally explaining everything to me in a way that I could understand. Based on this interaction I opted to undergo surgery as per his recommendation.
One thing I found especially remarkable was the accuracy of his assessment... Other doctors told me that I had ACL & MCL damage while he said that I had actually suffered MPFL damage after examining me in the same manner. This was later confirmed by the MRI scan. He also explained in detail the different levels of surgical intervention open to me (due to some issue with my bone structure), the risks associated with each option and left the decision making to me without forcing anything upon me.
The surgery went off exactly like he said. He has been extremely approachable and supportive post surgery, constantly follows up on my progress and takes time to clarify even the smallest doubts that I have. It has been 8 weeks since my surgery and my rehabilitation has been progressing smoothly and as I had hoped.
One minor issue I faced was that the access to his clinic is challenging for people with leg problems... However he has taken my feedback in this regard positively and promised to find a solution soon.
