Doctor made general enquiries before asking about my problem, probably to put me at ease. He prescribed tests.
In the next visit, after the test results were known, he explained the condition, reassured that it is not anything to worry about. He told about the treatment. He also patiently responded to my queries. A satisfying experience overall.
However the wait time was really long (almost one hour) on both occasions. Can this be reduced?
Also contacting the clinic phone to book appointments is quite difficult and requires multiple attempts. It is simpler to do it through Practo site.
I don't usually write reviews but I do at times when it's really unique. CURI at OMR is a different kind of hospital whose priority is service and hospitality. Only hospital where I wasn't asked to pay until I asked at the end. I met Dr PB Sivaraman who is close to 50 yrs exp. and who owns this big hospital and to my surpriae, he is down to earth who gives a pat on everyone's shoulder and moves like a elderly person in family. Also he educates the Junior doctors to not confuse patients with unnecessary terms and charges and keepts it simple. I went for my daughter's health issue and he did exactly what he had to do and nothing more or less. On other hand, everyone in the hospital treats patients with all respect and care and don't pass the bug. Lastly, the lady in admin/reception called Gayathri ,who is also so much friendly with patients and attends to everyone with due care rather than collecting money. My daughter had problem with urination. She personally helped with a smile. On overall, Im pleased with their service and will definitely recommend this hospital.
First of all the negative reviews are all by haters and competitors. As a real patients' blood relative, here are some of my honest feedback. You may connect with me to discuss further for any clarifications, I completely support and recommend CURI hospital for their impeccable help and assistance even during COVID-19 times.
After several consultations with money on their agenda doctors and hospitals, completely exhausted after them making us run around town during the COVID-19 pandemic we turned to CURI hospital, who provided immediate support and resolution for the patient's kidney stone removal operation.
The operation was an immense success and my mom the patient said it was literally like a picnic vacay for 2 days at the hospital with great care and treatment by all the staff.
Special shoutout to all our superheroes of CURI Hospital :
1) Dr. Ananthakrishnan Sivaraman ***** ********* * ******* ******** Excellent in explaining, calmed down and prepared the patient mentally before the operation, well educated and excellent etiquette. Absolutely patient oriented and not money on his agenda, just like his father!
2) Dr. Vinod (We first spoke to him and he did a great job organizing and arranging everything for the operation, guiding and following up with us)
3) Dr. Prabhakar (He did a great job for the Anesthesia, well trained Anesthesian)
3) Dr. Idayachandran
4) PRO Rama (She did a great job assisting and helping us, we had come from a far off location so they arranged a hospital car, even during COVID-19 times, as we had another lockdown in TN and no vehicles were allowed on road. Ambulances were draining us with exorbitant amounts for transportation but luckily Rama and CURI hospital came to our rescue even in this situation.)
Thank you so much CURI Hospitals and Dr. Ananthakrishnan.
** ** * ***** ******. He puts the patient at ease with his wonderful sense of humour. His diagnosis and recommend course of treatment is highly convincing . I have already recommend 5 or more people in the last 5 years or so and. Every one of them very happy with the Dr and his treatment
The wait timing is more than expected. For instance if your appointment time was 11. You will meet doctor 12:45. So plan accordingly. Its very high waiting time. Need to update Patientin prior if any delay
The doctor was very friendly which make us feel at ease. Being a highly experienced doctor, his expertise gives us great confidence to take up the suggested treatment. The admission process and the treatment procedures were also very smooth.
