I went to visit this Doctor for my mom's lower back pain issue. While explaining him the problem I found that he is not interested in listening to what I say and was focusing on only spine surgery. May be it is the only solution to my mom's problem but he should have enough patience to at least hear my problems. Anyway, I overlooked this and thought of going ahead with spine surgery since he was very sure that the problem will be resolved.
I went ahead for PAC related tests in Manipal hospital and that time my mom has been diagnosed with high sugar for the first time. So I did not get fitness certificate for surgery from PAC doctor and they asked me to consult this issue with Doctor since without controlling the sugar the surgery should not be performed. When I met Doctor to discuss this issue in the evening he told me that this is not an issue and fitness certificate is also not required and he can bypass this. He asked me to get my mom admitted immediately in the hospital (around 8pm itself) and he will give insulin to her next day morning and get the surgery done by evening. He also informed me that the very next day my mom can be released and she can fly back to Kolkata (hometown) next day after discharge. When I came out from his room and was in dilemma he also came out from his room and asked nurse to start all the formalities itself without taking my consent. Now I have couple of questions:
1. Since this is planned surgery why should I get my mom admitted immediately and opt for insulin?
2. Why PAC related checkups are needed when he can bypass all the negative results and even the doctors are not giving fitness report?
3. Is it really possible to fly for 2.5 hour after spine surgery on day 3? Is it really so simple?
4. Without any post surgery first check-up how can he ask patient to go back to her hometown?
I really did not get any answers of these questions and because of that I felt like running away and get her surgery done by some other Doctor who will not be in hurry.
I really do not recommend this doctor.
