I really wanted to get treatment on my shoulder. But the doctor said it is not feasible to operate on such a small injury as chances of it worsening are there. I visited him 3 times. I absolutely detest his receptionist and her attitude, also his tardiness is not appreciated but overall I would go to him again.
The doctor was recommended to me throgh my office's emapanelled doctor.When I went to him he was not at all interested in listening to my problem patiently.He just listened to me for the name and statred checking my foot.After checking the same he said that I can get admitted for 3 days and take the epidural injection for pain relief however the moment I told him that I was referres through the empanelled doctor,his expressions totally changed and he just flipped from his words and said that my report and expalanation of pain does not match.He is just interested in showing of his awards and he is very rude doctor.Would not recommend this doctor to anyone.**** *** ********
I was most unimpressed by his method of examining a patient , seemed to be in a hurry and wrote out a prescription for an xray of the wrong foot. His attitude was dismissive and he was most unhelpful regarding any information regarding follow up physiotherapy treatment. He made me get an MRI and xrays but I do not want to go back for his opinion. Stay away from a big doctor who is condescending and probably only interested in your case if you need expensive surgery.
Q: Who is an Orthopaedist?
A: An orthopaedist is a medical doctor who specializes in diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to the skeletal system. An orthopaedic doctor attends to any disorder or condition or injury pertaining to the bones, muscles, joints, and ligaments associated with the skeletal system. These medical professionals treat conditions like arthritis, back pain, sports injuries, and leg and foot pain
Q: What is the difference between an Orthopaedist and an Orthopaedic surgeon?
A: Orthopaedists are sometimes mistakenly referred to as orthopaedic surgeons. An orthopaedist deals with conditions related to the musculoskeletal system. He provides pre-surgical consultation and post-surgical follow up. An orthopaedic surgeon provides same care as orthopaedist, but performs surgery as well. He performs surgery to cure back pain, ruptured discs, bone tumours, carpal tunnel, arthritis and other injuries.
Q: Does an Orthopaedist treat foot and ankle related problems?
A: Yes, an orthopaedist deals with musculoskeletal problems within the body. Problems related to foot and ankle fall under this category. Common foot problems like bunions, ankle sprains, arthritis, and sports injury are treated by an orthopaedist. Diagnosis of foot and ankle related problems are done through imaging tests. The mode of treatment depends on the severity of the problem.
Q: Does one need a doctor referral to see an Orthopaedist?
A: One can consult an orthopaedist by booking an appointment. Consultation with the orthopaedist is conducted in his/her clinic or at a healthcare centre. In some cases, patients go to a general physician for any condition or disorder related to the musculoskeletal system. Once preliminary investigation is done, the general physician may refer the patient to an orthopaedist for further examination.
Q: Does an Orthopaedist treat sport injuries?
A: Sport injuries are mostly related to the musculoskeletal system. Injuries like ligament tear, sprains, fractures, muscle pull, or bruises are commonly encountered in sports. An orthopaedist is the right medical doctor to consult for sport injuries. After physical examination, the orthopaedist may ask for imaging tests for confirming the extent of damage and then treat accordingly.
