Post appointment, we met with co Dr. Suruchi Balad, she has no sense of talking to patients, she talks angrily, rude, unprofessional. Not sure how medanta is handling Suruchi Balad. She seems to be a frustrated with herself. My parents even worried to revisit suruchi due to her rudeness.
Very arrogant and high headed doctor. Does not explains anything about the disease or the way he is going to investigate. And, you are not allowed to ask any questions !
