Terrible Experience. I request Practo to please also mention how much time one will get for consultation after waiting for almost 1 hour (excluding time spent in registration and queue for consultation fee). The Doctor didn't have patience nor time to listen to our issues. Wrote prescription hurriedly and advised us not to know about your disease no matter how much you've suffered.
