Visited For Joint and Muscle ProblemsKnee Pain Treatment
I do not recommend the doctor
Hoped for better: Doctor friendlinessTreatment satisfactionValue for moneyWait time
I have already visited another doctor in same hospital 4 months ago for my Mother's knee injury. However there was no relief to the issue. This time I decided to visit Dr. Akhil Dadi (who is famous for joint injuries) since heard lot about him.
No one at reception told me that you can't visit another doctor. They took 600/- since that was fee for Dr. Akhil. I waited for almost 1 hour even after booking prior appointment through Practo, and when our number came Dr. Akhil simply denied to see the patient (my Mom) stating that the case of another doctor in same hospital. Then I requested to make it new registration even then he denied.
Later we have to wait for another 1 hour to see the same doctor which we previously visited. The overall experience displayed by Doctors and Staff was completely miserable and non-professional. The incidence completely vanished my all respect I had for Dr. Akhil. I completely agree that he might be right at his place and don't want to take case of his colleagues, however he doesn't have any right to deny to see any patient who visit him.
1. Why it was not clarified at the time of registration?
2. What is the problem if some patient want to consult another doctor?
3. Why to wait for 1 hour if you have pre-booked appointment at a slot?
The behavior displayed by Dr. Akhil and staff was highly unprofessional and was nowhere near the Declaration of Geneva recommendation for healthcare professional.
