I do not recommend the doctor

My father had a bypass surgery in 2017. Mr Nishith Chandra was the first one we met and he talked to us very nicely and recommended Dr. Ramji Mehrotra for the surgery. It’s been 2 years now. We have been going every 6 months and we visited again today in his OPD - as a follow up.
We saw a different Dr. Nishith this time . Before the surgery, he was very nice to talk to and explained us in detail about our situation and why the bypass was necessary. He was very pleasant to talk to and was a good listener .
But today, after waiting for more than 1 hour of our scheduled appointment time, he came. When we met him , he barely spent 5 mins with us with no interest what so ever in our condition and our problems . We felt like an uninvited guest to a relative who wanted us to just leave !
We paid 1000 Rs consulting fees, waited for 1.5 hours - just to feel his indifference. Even if I am not expecting a personal touch in the relationship of a doctor and a patient ( which personally I believe should be there ), it was not even professional . It was no value for the money and time we spent.
My father and myself had no confidence to ask any questions as he was not really interested. He wanted to just get to the next patient to complete his list of appointments today.
Sorry to say, but we have decided to stop going there from now onwards and find another doctor.
Dr. Nishith Chandra replied
My apologies for your unsatisfactory experience in my OPD. As far as I remember, your father was in perfect health after getting a total arterial bypass in 2017 at our hospital.
As a follow up I advised a Comprehensive Cardiac Checkup and Stress Echo.
I know it would be difficult, but If possible you can bring him again for any unanswered queries, at no extra charges.
