Too casual approach by the doctor, firstly I waited for 40 mins from the time of appointment given, then the consultation took just 2 mins.
Too casual approach by Doc and he was even not willing to share the diagnosis of the problem I came to consult.
Need to check whether the medicines given will be helpful in releaving my pain or not.
PRACTO - the consultation provided in your page mentions 300 INR whereas the clinic is charging 500 INR for consultation, please update your page.

Mr. Saurabh,
I don't check Practo as I am not a regular here. In fact ,I am here as one of my patients said he was surprised with a negative feedback given here. Now I think I better visit the page regularly at least to reply to feedback.

First of all I wish, hope and pray that your health problem is sorted out and you are on your way to recovery.

You have raised many issues and I will try to answer them one by one.

My regular consultation fees by prior appointments is Rs. 300. Any appointments made at the last minute or as an emergency I charge Rs. 500. The reception would have informed you.

And even as I apologize for the delay in seeing you. You must understand that there is a back up team to handle emergencies so that no patient is made to suffer. Unfortunately the medical field has too many unpredictabilities to handle. The day I saw you I had to operate on a 93 year hip fracture whose vitals were not holding up after surgery and I was held up there. Obviously that needed more attention and was a priority for me than seeing a healthy young man with an ankle ligament strain like you 40 minutes late.

And I really don't understand what the problem is if I can diagnose your clinical condition in two minutes. That comes with 14 years of experience of seeing and treating patients . I don't understand the term casual too. Should I be having a serious, tense and emotional face???

Next your condition was explained to you and your prescription paper has the diagnosis too. I clearly explained that for your ankle problem
Restrict Activities and Ice Pack it plus the medications


Now sometimes I wonder what more to write and explain? Should I be teaching my patients the Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Orthopaedics and Pharmacology of their medical condition.

These days just with a mobile and an internet connection it is very easy to bring disrepute to doctors who are trying their best to do good for their patients. A lot of doctors have this feeling and in this process the society is the biggest loser as many individual practionners would shut shop and hide behind the cloak of expensive corporate hospitals to defend themselves against vicious reputation damage.

Anyway I sincerely hope you are doing fine. One more surprising thing is you decided to give your feedback even before the treatment is completed.And in case the problem still persists you are more than welcome to review with me if you want to. In case you decide to go to another specialist and if that specialist opines that I had not done the right thing please let me know . That is for my learning.Yes doctors learn from complications and unpredictable prognosis.

Naveen.
