I do not recommend the doctor
I can't comment much about the doctor because he only gave me 2 minutes of his time. Already his fees are quite high - Rs 1200 and I still am as confused as I was before visiting him. He did not try in anyway to comfort me. I obviously did read up on the internet about the issues i was facing, so i was asking a few questions because i was nervous. I think that is bound to happen when your lab reports are bad. All the doctor said was get a particular scan done. He was not very receptive of me asking questions - finally he ended by saying that you don't understand and just walked out on me while I was still sitting in his cabin. If i did really understand what's wrong with me then why would I really be meeting him ? I agree with him absolutely that we need to get the scan done to first get a diagnosis and only then can he recommend some procedure, but a few kind words and a few clarifications would have gone a long way in comforting a patient. Don't think i would go back to him after my first experience.
