Dr. Tanoy Bose. MD[General Medicine], EULAR (Europian League Against Rheumatism) certfied Rheumatologist, is a practicing Rheumatologist and Diabetologist who takes care of patients suffering from any aches, pains and any state of Diabetes. Dr. Bose is a leading practitioner of Internal Medicine, Diabetes, Arthritis & Rheumatology and Interventional Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography in the city of Kolkata. The very few basic points regarding his mode of practice that makes him stand out of the crowd are: He uses Electronic Medical Records. Hence the patient data is available to the doctor all the time and the patients can call him during office hours and solve the needful queries. He gives out necessary knowledge materials to the patients in form of print out both in English and Bengali for the better understanding of the disease. He is one of the few doctors who advocates internet research for the patients and provides the keywords for the same. He always shares his mobile phone number and is accessible 24X7 either over phone or SMS or social chat messenger. He specializes in long-term non-resolving disorders, especially which are chronic and often unanswered. He also emphasizes on diagnosis first, followed by treatment and hence is very sure about his treatment modality. He spends ample time with his patients and ensures that all the issues are addressed. He has been a regular attendee of various national and state conferences in an effort to remain continuously updated with his knowledge. He had been an author of innumerable articles both English and Bengali on Rheumatology which has been published in News Dailies and Health Mags in Kolkata.You can easily communicate with him over email and he will help you without any extra spendings.
I consulted Dr. Bose as I was diagnosed as a case of Type 2 Diabetes and suffering since last 12 years. I had consulted many eminent Diabetologists of many metropolitan cities of India as I stay in Chhatisgarh and what actually happened is basically peristent change of medicines, newer and costlier medicines, referal to medical representatives to acquire those costly medicines and ultimately there was no good control of diabetes and I got a heart attack at the age of 43. I am an avid internet browser and what I found is that every diabetic is a potential candidate of heart attack and strict diabetic control along with prevention from heart attack like ailment with medicines. I am sorry to say, its a money making business for the doctors and pharma companies these days. As the normal anti diabetic drugs are getting cheaper, it seems that the doctor and pharma company nexus is getting stronger in prescribing costly drugs. I was prescribed medicines as costly as 45INR per tablet.
However, Now its time to review Dr. Bose. He is a patient listener and took entire 35 mins for consultation. He went through the bunch of the reports I had carried with me with patience and kept making notes of important data. He asked me about my dietary patterns, activity levels, glucometer results, whatsapp or email access and put me on a single shot insulin and one very cheap anti diabetic drug. I am in a perfect control of Diabetes. The total pill count per day has come down from 9 to 5 tabs per day. Each drug has its effects and adverse effectes mentioned in the prescription. I contact him over whatsapp for titration of Insulin and I am fine for last 8 months without any issues.
In west diabetic patients are connected with the treating doctor by an automated software, but Dr. Bose have utilised the modern technology to its maximum benefit for the good of the patients.
Although the primary area of practice is Rheumatology, I am planning to pay a visit to him for a Frozen shoulder issue soon.
Doctors like Dr. Bose is rare and we need more and more doctors like him in our country.
Hello everyone, like Naina my problem was exactly the same. I was suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis for the last 3 years and i had visited quite a few doctors of repute in Kolkata and I was put on Methotrexates, Saazo 1000 mg, Defza and Folic tablets. But there was no solution. Also i have taken biologics (Simponi) but that also didn't worked. 4 months back my knee joint got swollen and it was painful like anything. Can't even walk for single second, it was too painful.. I was so depressed and don’t know what to do. Seriously, i tell you some doctors are horrible and money minded, they only treat for money. I got to know this doctor from Practo and book an appointment . After I visited him he examined my knee which was swollen and painful. There was a swelling just behind the knee joint too. He immediately did an Ultrasound of the knee in his clinic at NH Rabindra Nath Speciality Centre, Hiland Park and a big cyst was found probably baker's cyst. He showed the picture to my husband too and compared the picture of both the knees. My left knee was totally different from right one. I was like astonished. After spending so much of money for last 3 years, net result was zero.
After the examination, he drew some fluid from the cyst. After the fluid was removed approximately 7ml I got a significant relief of pain and swelling. He stopped Methotrexates and steroids and asked us to get the fluid examined. Only if the fluid showed that there is no infection he will again draw the rest of fluid and inject steroid in the joint. We are waiting for the reports.
Iam extremely thankful to Dr. Bose, that he listened to me very carefully and he spent a complete one hour with me until the entire process of consultation and USG was completed. Till Date, iam fully statisfied with his consultation. The major point which I want to highlight i.e he always listen to patient’s problem carefully and then diagnosis according to that. For me, he did an exceptional job being a doctor. Iam surprised to see that before his treatment, none of the doctors been able to find out the reason of swelling in the knee.
I would always recommend him for Rheumatology issues.

I was suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis and we had visited quite a few doctors of repute in Kolkata and I was put on Mithotrexates, HCQX, Saazo and Folvic . But there was no good relief of her pain. 3 months back my knee joint got swollen and was painful. But over last 3 months after consulting 3 doctors I was every time put on Steroid medicine and the same group of tablets by each doctor. I was almost feeling hopeless seeing my suffering.
I got to know this doctor from Practo and sought an appointment which was easy. After I visited him he examined my knee which was swollen and painful. There was a swelling just behind the knee joint too. He immediately did an Ultrasound of the knee in his clinic at Hiland Park and a big cyst was found probably baker's cyst. He showed the picture to my husband too and compared the picture of both the knees.
He drew some fluid from the cyst which was absolutely painless. After the fluid was removed approximately 7ml I got a significant relief of pain and swelling. He stopped Methotrexates and steroids and asked us to get the fluid examined. Only if the fluid showed that there is no infection he will again draw the rest of fluid and inject steroid in the joint. We are waiting for the reports.
What I want to highlight that in spite of such an advancement of the medical technology , there are reputed doctors who are yet to adapt the development. Other wise I would have been well diagnosed quite ahead of time.
Needless to say that we are extremely thankful to Dr. Bose. We came to him with lots of hope and he simply outscored other doctors by his excellent clinical approach. In fact none of the other doctors have ever found time to see my affected knee. He spent a complete one hour with us until the entire process of consultation and USG was completed.
I would always recommend him for Rheumatology issues.
I was suffering from generalised bodyache with severe pain over back of neck and hands. Whenever, I touched those parts I had severe pain. The life was totally doomed and since I was a frequent traveller, I needed a quick relief for this problem. I had consulted many physicians and orthopaediacians and every body prescribed pain killers with Calcium and Vitamin D. But, there was no permanent relief from this problem. Neither did anyone provide me with any diagnosis.
I travelled from Howrah to Hiland Park to meet this doctor and the consultation was readily available as it was prebboked. He suggested that I was suffering from a disorder called FIBROMYALGIA. It is a state of heightened pain sensitivity and per se it is not a disease at all. I was prescribed with Fluoxetine and Pregabalin along with high dose Paracetamol.
Now there are some points which really impressed me.
1. The prescription was printed and digital. The doctor had a copy of my prescription and he asked me to call anytime I want and he can trace my prescription out from his laptop.
2. The possibel side effects of the drugs were prescribed in the prescription too so that I can identify the culprit drug and communicate with the doctor accordingly
3. The behavior was extremely polite and he advocated internet research on the disease.
These features are lacking amongst most of the doctors in the city. I am sure that soon the medical tourism will change its direction from south wards to east ward.
I would strongly recommend Dr. Bose for all rheumatological and internal Medicines issues.
First of all I would like to tell that , if you go through the review, you will realise that why people from Bangladesh are coming to India to get better treatment as because we never ever got so much of time, attention and briefing from any doctor in Bangladesh which we got with this doctor.
I was refered to this doctor by two of my friends who discovered that they are suffering from a disorder called Fibromyalgia which I had never heard of. My problem was intense headache that developed on exposure to sun, deprived sleep, noise, odour etc. Apart from these, I was suffering from a sense of low mental state, energy and immense lethargy. There was continuous back and body pain which never responded to calcium and vitamin D suppliments which was repeatedly prescribed by Orthopaedicians and other physicians. The life seemed to be doomed and I realised that depression was seting in.
This was the time when I met Dr. Bose under strong recommendations from two of my friends and as per Dr. Bose , I was suffering from a Heightened Pain Sensitivity Syndrome other wise called Fibromyalgia. Even Migraine is a one pattern of pain sensitivity problem and I thought at last there was a diagnosis to the problems I am suffering from.
I was put on Fluoxetine and Flunarizine along with Propranolol and was asked to review after 6 weeks. In fact such a long follow up surprised me. I just realised that these medicines are slow acting and show their peak action after 3 weeks minimum.
I think I am reborn. I am pain free and headache free. I just can't believe that this is me.
I am immensely thankful to Dr. Bose for his service and will always vouch for him in any medical issues.
Actually I got in contact with Dr Bose only after going through other reviews in PRACTO only. And this review is on behalf on my mother. I paid a visit to me without my mother as she was bed ridden for last 5 months due to extremely painful Rheumatoid Arthritis . I would like to admit that we did a lot of research and were misdirected quite a few times and visited Ayurveds, Homoeopaths, Accupunctures also. Even we found Zilaxo extremely poor in handling rheumatoid arthritis.
When I visited his clinic, obviously he wanted to see the patient. Now I understand that it is very difficult to prescribe for a disease without seeing a patient. Somehow, he got convinced with my plea and went through all the reports. He also insisted me to communicate over whatsapp and send imgaes of my mother. He planned a follow up after 3 months [That actually surprised me]. We started his medicines as per his directions.
My mother made a slow recovery but it was miraculous at the end of 2 months of treatment when I found her completely back into life with no limitation of activity and movement. It was astonishing to find a 5 month long bed ridden lady jumping back to life with only medicines.
She indeed has got some aches and pains in her joints but that is negligible to the amount of recovery she has done.
I will always be extremely thankful to Dr. Bose for he has almost given a new life to my mother. She walks, breaks stairs, goes to market, does aerobics etc and formost she is out of any form of mental depression.
I consulted Dr. Bose only after I got his information in PRACTO. And I must say that I am very satisfied with his management skill. As I can see in other reviews that everybody has discussed in detail about there disease, I will also take some time to compose this review as my daughter is suffering from one of these rare diseases called SOJIA [ Systemic Onset Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis ] .. I had to do quite a bit of internet research for this term :P.
Actually it all started when my daughter was 11 years old and suffered bouts of fever and joint pain and her condition was so severe that she needed hospitalisation everytime she had such attacks. She developed red swollen joints of lower limbs and would run high fever for days without any improvement inspite of antibiotics and other medicines.
We consulted quite a lot of paediatrics and even thought that she might be suffering some kind of cancer as was suggested by some orthopaedicians. However, after a toil of 3 years and internet research I came to know that it is a rheumatological condition and we should consult a rheumatologist rather than ortho or paediatricians.
This SOJIA was first diagnosed by Dr. Bose and that too in the first visit. She responded to his treatment dramatically and he told me that he was giving steroids as this disease responds well to steroids.
MY daughter is back to school and academics and is much playful now. She is on a once a week injections with a few tablets and relatively free from steroids for last 6 months and doing well.
So far as Rheumatology and Internal Medicine is concerned, I would always recommend Dr. Bose for his excellent clinical acumen.
I was hospitalised four times back-to-back since 25.09.15 due to various disease such as Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Tubercular Pleural Effusion, Hypoglycemia, Comorbidities, Idiopathic Parkinsonism, Medullary Nephrocalcinosis & SIADH.I'am 69 years old retired high school teacher in Physics.
I was under consultation of Dr.Tanoy Bose since 11.10.15 and have got substantial better result regarding my improvement.I am based out of Ranaghat in Nadia and have followed up periodically with the doctor regarding my timely check-up and giving him report over the mail.Dr. Tanoy Bose has helped me a lot in suggesting medicines promptly by referring my mail as I couldn't travel to Kolkata frequently.
Duringblast couple of months I am able to walk for a hour or so, can have my food alone and can do other other usual stuffs for me alone (earlier I was totally bed-ridden).I would definitely refer others to Dr.Tanoy Bose as I have seen favourable improvements regarding my health issues after consulting him.
This is the very first time I am writing a review for someone and this is because of the excellent treatment approach of Dr Tanoy Bose.He won't advise you unnecessary tests which is the main problem with most of the doctors around thus saving you extra bucks.More often than not we forget to ask some or the other points from the doctor during our visit and then regret or either have to visit again.This problem gets automatically resolved due to his availability on call and willingness to help.You can always contact him on his whatsapp no or even call him directly and he would be more than happy to help you.Now speaking about his expertise in Rheumatology and internal medicine, he has a good knowledge in these areas and can help you out really well.He is a very calm individual and patiently listens to the problems. I had contacted him for swelling in my left foot and am on his prescribed medicines for around two months. Although I have not recovered completely but there is very significant improvement in my condition. I would highly recommend him and would also suggest other users to start ahead and share their experiences that would help many other practo users just like it helped me.
Hi this is Rosemary and this review is for our only daughter aged 8 years who was suffering from multiple episodes of joint pains with fever and rash. We had consulted many pediatricians and orthopedics but she was prescribed Inj. PENDURE LA every month and there was no stopping of the disease. One of our family friends recommended about Dr. Bose and we did not mind travelling from SHILLONG to KOLKATA to meet this doctor.
Sasha [our daughter] was diagnosed with a disorder called JUVENILE IDIOPATHIC ARTHRITIS and we realised that we were completely misguided by the pendicure LA treatment whioch has got no relation with thsi disorder. Not only my daughter was relieved with his treatment protocol but it is worth mentioning a few points regarding Dr. Bose.
1. Extremely polite and generous. We spent a whopping 40 mins in his clinic.
2. He speaks until you have no more questions to ask.
3. Extremely knowledgeable
4. He caters Digital Prescriptions with detail of medicines printed in it.
5. Excellent knowledge in treating with BIOLOGICs injection.
1. Too many phone calls from his patients during the consultation hours. In fact this point is a good point as he answers all the phones coming from his patients.
Strongly recommended for pediatruc rheumatology.
Thank you Dr. Bose and Merry Christmas.
