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.
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
** ** * ***** ******. 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 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.
