Visited For Diseases of the Chest
I do not recommend the doctor
Hoped for better: Explanation of the health issueTreatment satisfactionWait time
We called to book an appointment on Saturday. Of the available appointment slots, we took the slot at 5.30pm. We were figuring out the location and took longer than expected so informed the clinic that it is important for us to show today and we will reach by 5.35pm, and we did.
There was some patient inside so we waited. And then we waited and waited and the assistive staff there kept on giving soft nudges to the doctor and patient that we are waiting outside. Finally at around 6.40pm, when we had made or mind to move, we got a chance to see the doctor. The patients inside were told to wait outside.
We had aken a chest x ray for better study of the issue. The doctor seemed to be in hurry and suggested a CT Scan. While we wanted to share more about the ailment, were not really given adequate time (were given less or upto 5 mins) , despite waiting for over an hour. The doctor after that immediately went out and asked the previous patient to come inside the cabin.
We felt cornered as we were visiting the doctor for the first time. May be because of lack of familiarity, we were not given adequate time. Did not get a chance to ask questions also.
The doctor also mentioned that you have taken the last slot of the week and we could not understand the comment as we had already informed the doctor that the patient was travelling out of India and has returned on Saturday morning only.
We have followed the advice and have got CT Scan done, however may not want to go to the doctor, may visit someone else. Felt a little brushed off as we waited for over an hour and then were not given satisfactory time.
While the doctor may be good for those who are given proper consultation, we haven't got value for time and money.
