Visited For Outpatient treatment
I do not recommend the doctor
Hoped for better: Explanation of the health issueTreatment satisfaction
I visited for my father's treatment. He is suffering from incessant cough due to complications resulting from PSP. Even before we saw Dr Padma, we were told to get 2 x-rays done which took us ~2 hours. After that and some wait, Dr Padma saw my father for less than 2 minutes. She was standing and we were not asked to sit either (though my father is wheelchair bound so he was sitting), she seemed in a great hurry to complete the conversation and advised us to see a swallowing specialist, saying that my father will need to be on feeding tube. I asked what about cough he gets even when he is not eating, or just lying down... she did not answer that and said that feeding tube will at least reduce the risk while eating. This wasn't helpful at all as we knew he has swallowing issues due to PSP, we have consulted the best doctors in Delhi and Bangalore for PSP and told her that. We had gone to a pulmonologist to understand if there was a treatment or relief possible for the symptom of incessant cough. The least I would expect is that she should have given us clarity on if there is any treatment possible or not. She was insistent that we see the swallowing specialist first and then she will advise further treatment. more..
