Doctor is helpful, listens to you properly and patiently answers all your queries. Its very good to see clinic is taking all covid precautions. However on a patient care, you have to have some empathy and understanding of the situation. They dont have any xray center with the clinic. So we needed to walk to the clinic and come back with the report. while coming back to provide the report, my aged mother who is of 65 years age, was not even allowed a seat while she is waiting for the cab (we waited for 2 minutes at max). And all this happened at 2:30 pm noon. Security was very rude. Its a private clinic, so its not like they are providing us any subsidy or free treatment. If we are paying so much, a little bit of courtsey atleast is expected, specially to a senior citizen.
**** ****** ** ********* i recommend Well maintained clinic and staff are very friendly explained every thing doctor written on advice
Visited doctor on may 20, 2020 for rhematoid arthritis treatment for my mother. This was our first visit @ OARC.
*** ******* ***** ** ****** **** ******* I liked his professionalism. I have been visiting the Optima Clinic since may 2017 for treatment of my Rheumatoid Arthritis. My treatment was going well. However the pain point is his rude staffs. I have had multiple unpleasant experience with them since i started visiting him. Today was heights! I had an appointment with doctor at 9:30 am. Unfortunately stuck in unusual traffic jam and was late by 30 mins. Reached there by 10 am. Was made to wait til 11 am. This was fine with me as it was expected. At 11 I was told to wait near the doctor's room. I was about to go inside and waiting for the patient inside to come out. Now another lady comes and tell me to wait outside and it will take time for my visit. Now the lady in the reception asks me to write down my name in the Walkin patients lists. By now some conversations happens between 3 ladies and now the plan is to send me only after all the walk in patients visit. I didnt know some unfortunate events leading to 30 mins late can cost me so dearly!. Repeated request to consider my 9:30 appointment yielded no result. I had to go to office after vising the doctor, not in a condition to take off off the day. But they had decided they will not allow me to visit the doctor for the crime i have committed by reaching 30 mins late. I did not have other option but to come back without visiting the doctor. I had all the blood tests done and had reports to show to doctor.Not really sure when and how to visit this doctor. Whom should I show my reports to?! Dont know..I have had enough of rude behavior of these ladies. Just wish Doctor take some nice and pleasant people like him onboarded.
