1) The diagnosis was Accurate but the Doctor follows unethical practices.
2)He himself gave me medicines and included it in the bill. I feel this is wrong as he does not have any knowledge of the cash we have in hand or we could get the same medicines at a pharmacy at a good discount of 15%.
3)He sold me a sample copy of a pain reliever ointment(given by the medicine company) which was not meant to be sold.
4) He does not prescribe the best medicines. He only prescribes the medicines that he has in stock at his clinic. He prescribed me a tablet which he had with him. And later his compounder brought a new stock of medicines, he simply swapped that tablet with the new medicine that had arrived and said that this was more effective. My question is why was this not prescribed in the first place. This is bad from a doctor as he tried to sell me a sub- standard medicine because he only had that in stock instead of giving me the best medicine for my problem
4) He does not provide a break up of the bill. I calculated the price myself and I ended up paying about Rs.50 more (even after including the sample copy ointment )

Visited For Fracture Treatment
Totally money minded, damn expensive and completely lacks empathy for the patient. He mets out cost right after you tell your problems. Doesnt diagnose much but deals us as packages. Has got price on h Totally money minded, damn expensive and completely lacks empathy for the patient. He mets out cost right after you tell your problems. Doesnt diagnose much but deals us as packages. Has got price on his minds before he starts his treatment, as if you are buying something at a store. Small, large, XL and XXL. Thats how he prices it.

The clinic is set at a nook on the road and lacks even the basic tools. Its reminiscent of a carpenter shop but he charges almost on top of apollo hospitals. 500 for consultation, ********* **** ** *** **** **** ***** ******* ** **** ***** *** *** **** * ******** so its sort of compulsary.

Refrain from him at any cost.
