I do not recommend the doctor
I visited the doctor for my lower back pain. The entire consultation got over in less than 5-7 minutes (of which 2-3 minutes he was fiddling with his phone) He didn’t even care to ask about history such as past treatment, any medication taken etc. I went on telling everything on my own. The doctor seemed uninterested during the entire conversation.
He prescribed an MRI and some tablets. As soon as I was out of his cabin, his staff asked me to confirm the time for the MRI. When I told him that I will get it done elsewhere as per my convenience. He started insisting that I should get it done at their centre only as their results are more accurate than others (oh please !!!)
Further, the staff had no records of my appointment through Practo. It was like a walk in where you go and ask for an appointment at the reception and they write your name at the end of waiting list. They also didn’t have the swiping machine for payment. Luckily I had some cash, else I had to look around for an ATM with the severe back pain.
Overall, it was not a pleasant experience.

From clinic staff
The doctor has spent with you reasonable time with you and evaluated . H e is senior neurologist with several years s experience. It requires few minutes to make a reasonable diagnoisis. If doctors gets emergency phone call from ICU hospital, he has to attend and cannot say no. If he is working in the same centre, facilities are available, MRI usually done there for Better interpretations and future studies, we recommend here. On particular day if the doctor has got many appointments it is some difficult and previous held up due to emergencies, things can be delayed. Sorry for the events.
