My mother went to apollo hospital for left ear pain (she was his patient. At that time we had not gone for hemato problem we had gone there for ENT problem. He admitted her under him for obvious revenu My mother went to apollo hospital for left ear pain (she was his patient. At that time we had not gone for hemato problem we had gone there for ENT problem. He admitted her under him for obvious revenue target reasons). For first 7 days there was no treatment only pain killers were administered. On 7th day MRI was taken. In fact, we wanted to get discharged as her left ear pain subsided to a great extend and the decision was also told to this wicked fellow Dr Prabu. On seeing a lesion in right maxilla sinus (which we explained him it is a known condition) in MRI, he suddenly started a invasive anti fungal treatment with (Amphotericin B and Voriconozole drugs at high dozes) which is high risk with high mortality rate and astronomically high cost (more than 1 crore treatment) without even informing us. He had not even spoken about biopsy. With a simple radiology evidence he presumed it is invasive fungal inspite of the fact ENT ruled out as invasive fungal. Within 3 days of medicine, all her organ (her kidney, liver etc) was compromised and I see her dying everyday. Before starting the treatment (which is without our knowledge), her blood report, kidney function, liver function were all good. Only on the 4th day of the treatment, we came to know, he had started such a poisonous drug. He was making every body to believe that fungal is causing all this damage. All her organ shattered and battered on account of the treatment making her unfit even for biopsy. I had agreed for biopsy even in such a condition, just to disprove him that it was not a invasive fungal. Biopsy result came negative for fungal strains. Our bills substantially rised to 14 lacs in just 13 days after the treatment (which is started with no evidence). The worst is that he continued this drug even after negative fungal strain. The poisonous effect of the drug had pushed her to coma and we had run out of money and we had to shift her to govt hospital and atlast she died on account of unwarranted anti fungal treatment. He actually murdered her thinking that we are vulnerable (mother with only a son and single daughter). We even lost our father few years back and now we are literally orphan.
I consulted many imminent doctors, everybody said that no doctor in the whole world would start such a high risk treatment based on the radiology evidence (that too without getting our informed consent) which is not even a remote evidence. If somebody had done this, he must be the brainless, senseless and total disregard to human life. His only motive is to stick with the Apollo hospital by meeting target. He enacted the plot with the help of CCU doctor Raymond and ID specialist Ram Gopal Krishnan.His knowledge even in his own filed of hematology is very little as induced by us from his conduct. The patient come to him on account of the fact he is the only consultant in main Apollo in hematology.
The imprint of the traumatic experience haunts me everyday and i am wrecked to the bottom and it is not far away for me to breathe my last.
Every thing mentioned is true to my heart and I can show all the evidences for the same.
