I went there for a knee pain. The treatment is still on, and believe i will recover soon. But the 1st experience with the clinic made me feel so pissed off. It is because of the fact that they don't ac I went there for a knee pain. The treatment is still on, and believe i will recover soon. But the 1st experience with the clinic made me feel so pissed off. It is because of the fact that they don't accept cards. The woman sitting in reception tells a story that they are unable to give change for those who pay by cash. In Current situation no body prefers paying by cash. Further they can insist those who pay by cash to have change, why everyone. My suspect is that they are trying to ignore taxes. And knowing that I have knee pain, that female made me walk every corner of the road.

With respect to doctor's treatment, will update once I get cured from this ailment!

Dear Mr Vishnu,
My sincere apologies for your unpleasant experience at the billing at the Clinic. It was unacceptable that you had to run around to get change on the day of your consultation. I would however like to clarify the following /
- The National Sports Medicine Center DOES accept card payments. (However there are many occasions when the signals/bank server signals are patchy and transaction fail for certain lengths of time.) /
- There is an invoice generated for every transaction and every transaction (either by cash or card is accounted for and TAX PAID :) )/
- During the Post Demonetization it is as difficult for us as the next person to find adequate change in smaller denominations. Hence we offer many of our patients the option to either pay by card or pay on future visits or at the end of the treatment cycle if there are therapy sessions indicated.

However the fact that these options were not offered to you and not communicated to you is a failure on our part and I apologise for the same and will ensure that such a situation does not arise in the future

Regards,
Dr. Madhu Thottappillil

He takes the time to explain the illness and its cause. Very pleasant personality. Limited meds. Diagnosis mostly based on clinical examination.
