Visited For Skin Disease Treatment
I do not recommend the doctor
Hoped for better: Treatment satisfactionValue for money
I had booked an appointment at 7.45pm since the doctor availability timing was mentioned as 3pm to 8pm in Practo. When I called up in the clinic at 11am for confirmation, the receptionist informed me that the doctor usually leaves by 7-7.15pm, so I would have to come early if I wished to see the doctor. Since I needed the treatment urgently, I had to leave my office midway which usually ends at 6.30pm and I had to drive all the way to the clinic in huge traffic which was almost 15kms away from my office. When I reached the clinic around 7.10pm, the receptionist was surprised and asked me how come I came so early since my appointment was at 7.45pm. It gave me an impression as if I had come early by my own will and the doctor would anyway have been available till 8pm. This really annoyed me since I could have finished my day's work in the office easily and visited the clinic at the scheduled time. Following that, the doctor seemed to be pretty nice and cordial but she had listed out a series of creams and lotions for my forehead skin infection. She handed over the prescription directly to her attendant who guided me to the reception. They told me to wait for 5 mins and I had no idea what was going on. The receptionist started scribbling random numbers over each medicine on my prescription and after a couple of minutes, she told balatantly me to pay Rs. 2600 something directly. She said that all the medicines were available from their clinic only except one which I would have to purchase from outside. I was so shocked with their gestures that I could hardly figure out whether this was some treatment or some policy going on. I straightway refused to buy the medicines from there and left the clinic. I still cannot come to terms with the fact of buying 3k worth of creams and lotions and that too without even being asked whether I am willing it to buy those from their clinic or not. Their gestures were far too unprofessional for a medical hub where people wish to go for recovery from their ailment.
