Dr. Ashok Kumar Singhal was very good. Though I consulted him only once, I think it was a righteous approach which bestowed me a great experience in terms of treatment and hospitality. The queue was quite large. So it took 30 minutes to reach the doctor but, it was logical. It was a satisfactory experience altogether and I will say YES for this doctor.
Only one time I have got a consultation from him. He interacted well and explained the diagnosis clearly. Treatment was good. But the waiting time was a little high. Because there was no proper guide to the way of consultation and registration area. I had to climb the stairs twice for the same and it consumed more than 1 and a half hours for this.
I would not recommend this doctor. I was admitted with a fit episode, and on my follow up visit the doctor did not have 30 seconds to explain the MRI and EEG reports or clarify any questions we may have. He prescribed medications and kept stressing to come back in 20 days. There was no clarity or explanation on my reports and he had no patience.
To add to this, he is highly uncooperative as well. When we went back to him to discuss regarding to further discuss our reports for insurance purposes on yet another follow up appointment, he did not care to listen or acknowledge and dismissed us. Being in the medical Service profession for 5 years, i have come across many doctors and have witnessed their cooperation and interest towards their patients , and this is the first time i have come across a doctor of such disrespect and disregard for his patients.
Fortis Hospitals Bannerghatta Road, is an excellent hospital with a wide range of reputed doctors, however this negative rating is for the doctor and not the hospital.
This rating is only for the clinic due to the Receiptionist, the receptionist is the worst & rude.. we were 15mins before ontime to clinic, our appointment was at 5.30pm, when we checked with her she said I know when to send and we don't follow practo time.. she was extremely rude, I told we have another appointment with doctor in sometime she ignored it, I immediately called practo to complaint. She was sending other patients infornt of us who came after us &did not have appointments. Coming to Dr.Ashok Kumar he's extremely good, did great analysis I would want to give him 5 out of 5 just because his staff I'm ratting this 1. Sorry doctor.
I read other reviews and took an appointment with Dr.Ashok for my maternal uncle who was suffering from weakness, memory loss and few post accident trauma. To me, Dr.Ashok, came across as very down to earth, modest, good listener and understood the anxiety of the patient and also us, family. He heard our story, told us to be calm, did a very thorough check-up before prescribing a test followed by medicines. He understands the jumpiness of patients-We are so eager and anxious in asking questions but he never lost his cool. He patiently answered all questions including few silly questions of us with smile on his face. Post the test, my uncle started taking medicines and he is on his way to recovery! I thoroughly recommend Dr. Ashok for being so patient, understanding and grounded enough to make us understand the Do's and Dont's. Thanks a lot Doctor
I know him for the last 5 years. He has been a good adviser and caretaker for me since then. I am pretty much satisfied with his treatment and the services at Fortis. There will be an hour of a waiting period before the consultation which depends upon the crowd.
I visited the doctor to consult for a headache for my wife. The doctor patiently listened to us and also went thro the voluminous health records to understand the background. ** ****** ***** ************* ***** *** ***** ****** ****** ** **** *** ********* **** *** *** **** ** **** *** **** There is also an ophthalmologist in the same clinic who did an eye checkup. The doctor was able to use that diagnosis also to zero in on the problem which my wife was facing and prescribed the appropriate medication.
Bad listening skills.. No explanation.. In fact when he was recommending things, he sounded so uncertain that one question I asked about the medicine he prescribed and he didn't have a clear answer! Neither did he sound confident about diagnosis..
The clinic in itself doesn't have a professional environment.. No value for time.. It all looked to me like a money making business.. Consultation.. Eye check up.. Medicines.. They want you to do everything right there so that they can make money.. Rs. 9,000 spent and the problem still doesn't have any signs of cure..
I'd never recommend this doctor /clinic to anyone!
