I met Dr Vaid (medical oncologist)today and omg he is so rude, so condescending, that too with someone who is already debilitated ! It was just an ineffable experience! I can not fathom the reason behind this and frankly don’t give a d..n ! He didn’t give us a chance to utter a word ! Gave us 2 mins of his time !and when we got upset and created a scene he went back on his words and tried to behave as if nothing had happened, so unprofessional !
You wait for 15 days for appointment and pay double the cost which other hospitals charge. And then after waiting for so long, you just give 2 minutes of your time n Then write Other doctor name on prescription( who is easily reachable) is not appreciated.
Dr. Vaid’s team is rude, He doesnt encourage well read patients asking questions about the disease and treatment, had a harrowing time as if cancer at an age of 34 wasnt enough. *** ******** ** ***** ** *** ***** please stay away, you need empathy during cancer not rude treatment
