Doctor - Very good.
Hospital (Manipal) - Bad

Nice doctor, gave good info about the actual problem and the solution being provided. However, the wait time is too much. The hospital could not maintain the timings. I had appointment at 11:30 am and I got to see the doctor at 12:30. Wait time of 10-20 mins is acceptable but an hour of waiting is too much especially when the appointment is pre-booked.

After making me wait for 30 mins, he came by to check my tooth and said that although it looks fine now, a root canal treatment is recommended as a permanent solution. But he said he couldn't do it then. I explained that I have a baby at home and so it is difficult for me to come back too many times. He asked me to come at 4 pm the following day and assured me that he would start promptly and finish the procedure. I showed up the following day at 4 pm and he had left for the day!! This is just inexplicably unprofessional and something highly unexpected from a senior doctor. You can ignore his abrasive nature and sour personality, but this unprofessionalism can't be ignored. more..

My wife had done a Root Canal treatment (RCT) from an other doctor, and was facing food lodgment problem between the RCT tooth and its adjacent tooth.

So, visited Dr Baliga for treating the same. We were told that,it was a very minor problem and could be resolved by a simple filling between the teeth. 

**** ** *** **** **** * **** ****** ****  
He unnecessary drilled the adjucent tooth so deep that it was very close to the nerve, he completely ruined a healthy tooth.

My wife suffered from excessive sentivity for 20 days and when we visited him, we were told that a filling material change might help, else RCT would be needed on this tooth.

When asked as to why a perfectlty healthy tooth (as admitted by him) would need a RCT procedure, he started getting irritated and side stepped the question.

During the entire time he was doing the procedure, he had another Doctor by his side, with whom he was discussing another case, looking at the reports, calling up the other patient informing him about the test results .....etc etc  

Was also very unhappy with the handling, he was very rough and not diligent at all. 

All in all, one of the worst dental experiences, and did not expect this from such an experienced Doctor.

Visited For RCT - Root Canal Treatment

He said he is to We had taken appointment at 12.00pm to show my daughter (3.4yr) old, but we had to wait 1.20 mins to meet the Doc. He wasn't keen to listen and just checked the teeth with bare hands. He said he is too big a dr to do child RCT. He said he will just do general anaesthesia and someone will operate. It will cost 50,000/- think and let me know. We found it very rude and we left. after paying Rs.630 for good experience.
I would not recommend going there.
