Dr.Dhar is an excellent ortho in Faridabad city. My 9 month old daughter got major fracture in right thigh (bone broke in two) and got treated in one of the reputed hospital in sector 19 but her case got more worse there, I also consult with lots of orthopedics in city but every one suggested for surgery and putting wires in her leg. With his specialization Dr.Ashok Dhar cure her with only putting plaster & without any medicines. His calmness, Patient & family handling show’s his experience. Also appreciate Fortis Escort service level.
Positives - efficient and effective.Potential areas of improvement - 1. impersonal and hurried attitude - increased empathy towards patient will help in an informed recovery and better feedback. 2. Illegible handwriting and unintelligible directions - I couldn't understand his directions for the meds or recall the exercises later, considering I have a doctorate in science and deal with uncertainty as a profession. Needs to go slow while explaining treatment to patient .
The billing counter is very slow and during rush hour there should be counter closed. The payment if bill itself took over 30 minutes - if a sick person without an attender how will he ir she manage?
Very good hand in diagnosis and treatment. Very much recommended due to his knowledge and experience.
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.
