Very unprofessional. *** ** ******* * ******* ** * ************* When I visited she was already busy on the phone and did not give any attention to my concern. She already booked a cab for her as soon as I entered. After paying Rs 800 as a fee at Max hospital, she did not listen to me for even 8 minutes and directly said to me, when you visit next time please pay double amount. Is this the way a person who is already vulnerable, going through a tough time in life, supposed to be treated or should listen to this? I will never recommend her. very disheartened.
Dr. Ashima Srivastava (PhD) replied
I am sorry to hear about your experience. I'd like to take this opportunity to correct some details you have provided. Your first session lasted for more than 50 minutes and not for 8 minutes as you mentioned. Moreover, your report about booking a cab is untrue.
Since you had come for marriage counselling, it was requested that for the next session, you get your spouse registered as well. Our second session lasted over an hour. If the first session was unsatisfactory, you should have been upfront about it then itself rather than continuing. It would have been really appreciable if the feedback is honest and constructive. Wishing you all the best.
