1st visit - receptionist asks to pay consultation fees upfront. Surprised, we still pay and go to see the doctor. He makes an insensitive comment, which he thought was funny. We ignore it. He suggests some tests. We step out. The receptionist asks to see the prescription. Again surprised, we show it. She suggests we get them done at the clinic at a discounted price. We pass the offer. Get the tests done at Thyrocare for half the 'discounted price' and sample collected at home.
2nd visit for test review after a day's gap - Receptionist asks to pay consultation fees again. We protest, saying no doctor charges consultation fees twice within a span of 2 days, especially when the doctor himself asked you to come back with the results. The receptionist corrects herself and allows us the entry. We discuss that we will confront the doctor about this weird behaviour of his staff. She overhears this. When our turn comes, she escorts us inside and this time decides to stand inside the room during the entire consultation period. The doctor also doesn't ask her to leave while he's discussing private matters of his patient. He gives unuseful suggestions, writes down 7 more tests to be done and starts insisting on a laser treatment. We just leave the clinic, meet another doctor who informs only 1 of the recommended tests is really required and all we need to do is make changes in our lifestyles.
