I had promised a detailed review after some time of treatment. So here it is.
Calling Dr. Ravi a savior would be giving him the Status of God and that would not be fair to Dr. Ravi. In my experience, we can reach out to God. But then God decides if He wants to show us the right path or not. We don’t even know if God has received our prayers or not. However, that is not true for Dr. Ravi.
Last year and a half has been a roller coaster ride for me. There were many ups and downs. Dr. Ravi gave me the tools to navigate these ups and downs fearlessly. If ever I forgot to use the tools in the heat of the moment, Dr. Ravi was always there to steer me back. Sometimes by changing the dosage of medicine, sometimes by counseling and sometimes by simply saying “I know you can handle it on your own”. The last method is the most powerful. It would motivate me to handle things on my own just so that I can prove that Dr. Ravi’s confidence in me is not misplaced.
Trusting another person with your innermost thoughts is probably the hardest thing one can do. Over time Dr. Ravi has gained my trust such that I can tell him almost anything, without any fear of being judged. Of course that doesn’t mean that he won’t point it out if I am going in the wrong direction. He just does it with a lot of sensitivity.
Yes. Sometimes he does take calls during the consultation. Honestly, it was a little weird in the beginning. But now I realize that he has to do that as he never knows which patient needs him and to what extent. He has taken my calls when I was really low and just the fact that he was there helped me to fight out whatever was getting me down. So now I don’t mind it all. After all, if I expect him to be there for me when I need his help, then his other patients have the right to expect the same from him.
Then there’s the fact that he has the amazing ability to provide the right kind of support after just knowing the name. At least I think that he has a great memory as he can bring up all the details of my case without me having to repeat it for him every time.
Am I giving too much praise for him? Maybe. Maybe I am biased because he has never been too mean, or in his own words a jerk, to me. Even when I have flatly refused to do what he asked me to do. But then Don’t be under the impression that he can’t be a jerk when you refuse to follow his line of treatment. I try to follow his advice as much as I can. So he tries to understand why l’d refuse. I am not a model patient, but I am not the greatest either.
In the end, I would like to say that even if my treatment ends, Dr. Ravi will always be my go-to person as he is patient and totally down to earth. I just hope that he doesn’t get fed up of me and my antics by then. 😉
All the best for the future Doc. And do take some time out for yourself and your family in between taking care of us, your patients.
