Visited For Leg Pain
I do not recommend the doctor
Hoped for better: Explanation of the health issue
I have visited Dr Raviraj multiple times, for my parents,in-laws, spouse and for myself and i have the following observations:
1. Dr Raviraj is good and his diagnosis is fine and i would have recommended the doctor but for the below reason unable to do so.
2. Recently we met him for Gait movement disorder and after consultation he directed to another doctor in Apollo. We met the Doctor in Apollo and it was detected a Early Parkinsons syndrome and he needed a x-ray just to check/clarify. We came to Vijaya Bank Medical just to get the x-ray done. Once done, the x-ray centre directed to Doctor to get the report. The receptionist said to get the report from doctor and consultation would not be charged and sent us in. Once inside Dr. Raviraj again started the whole process he did few days back where he asked to meet the doctors of Apollo. Once we came out the receptionist asked for the consultation as we had spent sometime with doctor.
3. The doctor always seems to be in a hurry and i felt it would be better if explains the issues a bit more, if any exercise needs to be done or how to better manage the problem. It seems the patient needs to asks more question to get information of the Doctor.

Please note the following
The fact that you have brought your many relatives and you have got treated urself with us indicates the trust that you had with us. We are concerned about the issue that you brought out . Please note the following
The time spent in a particular consultation doesnot necessarily indicate the quality of treatment u get and the quality of the advice given.
Difficult situations and cases require longer time to assess and make a diagnosis.
I take utmost care within the purview of my knowledge and experience to do best for my patients and also spend sufficient time as per the merit of individual cases. Some of the neurological conditions in elderly might overlap the orthopaedic conditions.this sometimes may require to see other specialists.
Regarding the consultation fees charged we have a consultation charge of 350 INR and we donot charge any registration charges also. We have a policy of 4 days of free follow up consultation for every patients. Subsequent visits are charged. This is required to run the place.
These charges are nominal for a orthopaedic consultation.
