Consulted Dr. Krishna Kumar (Ayurveda) for Body Weakness
I recommend the doctor
Happy with: Doctor friendliness
The clinic location and doctor were good.
Though, I had complained about body weakness and cough, the doctor advised me for 12 days "PanchKarma (Shodhana) chikitsa". Which I later (9th day) learned to be taking simple medicines at home, followed by 4 massages and a loose motion on last day.
This could be good by itself, but didn't help my weakness issue & cough.
Before going there, I saw several good reviews, but didn't see anything about the pricing of the "PanchKarma", so I will like to point it out for patient's and clinic's help.
## Consultation charge is 250/-
## PanchKarma constitutes
-- 24 Hajmola like digestive pills for 4 days (2-2-2 per day); no clinic visit
-- 150 ml bitter Ayurvedic ghee for 4 days (15ml-30ml-45ml-60ml); no clinic visit
-- 1 hour body massage; which is followed by 15 mins add-on (Shirodhara, Or herbal wash, Or head massage) for 4 days; need to spend 90 mins at clinic (includes hot water bath)
==>They charged me 10k/- for all the above.
On the last day I inquired on individual massage, to which the reception lady told 1000/-, which includes free consultation and 15% discount on medicine !!
24 hajmola and 150 ml ghee won't cost more than 200/- and the massages + add-ons will be 1250 x 4 = 5000/-.
I ended up paying double for the same treatment which were available individually. Usually it should be other way around. If you take something in bulk, then that should be discounted. I felt naive for myself not to inquire all these in beginning.
Dr. Krishna Kumar replied
Thanks for your valuable feedback. U were suffering from High cholesterol levels and low immunity since 3 years and u had tried almost all treatments for the same when we advised for medications, u didnt want any medicines / supplements but u wanted to do Detox Programme. ## There were no availability of slots but u insisted us to accommodate and we somehow managed to give you appointments. Our doctor planned only 12 days of treatment for ur multiple issues. We cant split the cost as you have done. For your reference last 4 days of treatment Abhyanga + Shirodhara + UDwartahan + Steam for 1.5 duration per treatment ( BAsed on the complaints these will change ) per session is Rs.2000, along with complete support frm doctors for all days ( priceless)
We never force any customer to undergo the therapy at our place as the slots are full. You can also check at other places and definitley novody wud charge less than 12,000
