Very patiently enquirers about the health issue/history and explains the diagnosis and proposed treatment.
Doctors explanation in detail & the advice to be followed for early recovery, also the time taken by the doctor for treatment
Everything went well. Very kind, analysis problem very well, and suggested Treatment also simple.Thanks
Initially I had taken treatment from some other doctor. But the wound is not healed properly. As a second opinion,I came here. Now the wound is healing better and better. Thanks to the doctor Mr.Premkumar for guiding me in correct ways to cure my injury. He is so Kind and Friendly in nature.
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 )
************ ** *** **** ***** ****** * **** **** ****. I met with an accident last year and broke my right collar bone was advised for a surgery by some leading hospitals. I didn't feel like having a surgery and hence met Dr.Prem on my third consultation. The moment doctor reviewed by situation and the X-Ray he confidently told it will heal on its own and absolutely ruled out the need for a surgery. He had a methodical approach and recommended exercises at the right stage of healing. My fracture got healed exactly within the time frame he mentioned. I have referred a lot of my friend and relatives and this feedback is collective of them. I would certainly recommend Dr.Prem for Ortho related issues.
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.
I had come to chennai for a vacation n unfortunately i injured my hand around 3:30 am while sleeping. Before visiting Dr.PremKumar I had been to a nearby super specialty hospital. The ortho doctor there had strongly recommended me to undergo a surgery. But I wanted to take a second opinion before going for a surgery n that's when I contacted Dr.Prem Kumar. He asked me to come to the clinic at 7:30am. Doctor was on time to the clinic. It was a Sunday early morning & I had a severe pain with a collar bone fracture. But later Dr.Prem said there is no need of a surgery n just wearing a sling around my shoulder for a month with complete rest would be enough for healing. I even consulted a doctor at my native n even he advised the same as Dr.Prem. I've heard a couple of very good reviews about Dr.Prem Kumar and after my personal experience I would definitely recommend him to others.
I went to him with little fracture in my hand.
He said it is not so serious...wear the hand bag for 3 weeks ....now it is 2 weeks...
And the main thing is he is very kind...
He answer us kindly for what we ask without irritating.... He is a good Doctor....
I feel better, any how I can get the problem cured 100% after 3/4 days. Till then I have to wait. Thanks for your message. I will meet you by Monday 24/2/20.
