I am extremely happy about the treatment. Overall experience with the staff and doctor was nice. 30 minutes of waiting period was there.
Wonderful Experience. Dr. Vinod Raina is a legend in Oncology. He is a very dedicated professional. Treats the patient with outmost devotion! He explained me the disease of Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma...**** ********* ***** * *** ******* ********* ** **** ** ********* I was extremely satisfied with the appointment.
We went to Dr. Raina to consult chemotherapy for my mother after ovarian tumor surgery. Dr. Raina hardly gave us 5 minutes. He was more interested in getting the chemo done under him. When we told we will get the chemo done at our hometown in Jaipur, he just wrote down some chemo medicines citing it is standard procedure not even mentioning the frequency of cycels and other details. Later we came to know that one of the medicine which he recommended was very costly one which is in testing phase and cases of bleeding in lungs have been reported by use of the medicine. He didn't even bothered to read biopsy reports or look at the patient. He charged Rs 3000 for the consultation and didn't even have the courtesy to attend the patient properly and satisfy the worries regarding chemo. I would suggest Dr. Raina to have some respect for his profession. Fame is not everlasting, it is an ongoing process. God bless you.
Very bad experience ,************* ****** *** *** **** *** over charged for medicine.The hospital staff are very non cooperative.not recommended.
