This was my second experience with the doctor. First time it was for my mother and this time my visit was pertaining to my aunt's hip injury.
Staff were good. They made me to rest once I reached.
so I had an appointment with this Doc. yesterday at 6:15 and I reached his location at the exact time and when reported at the reception counter and they said Doctor will see you in few minutes before that we'll complete the formalities of entering the basic details of the patient and whilst we were on that, receptionist gets a call from the Doctor and the Doctor knows there will be a patient coming at 6:15 so that's why he calls the receptionist and cancels the appointment says he's not coming, I didn't know what to do since I trusted this app and it's prime features or it was the Doctors fault for not calling beforehand and let me know he won't be there at the hospital, because I had to ride the bike myself in Hyderabad traffic with shoulder pain for 8kms, give or take. nothing was worth it. went home with regrets. smh
Booked an appointment for 10am. I got a call from clinic to come between 11-1130am as the doctor will not be available at 10 am. I reached there at 1115. The staff was not ready to tell when the doctor will be available for checkup. I waited for a little more than half an hour and when the doctor still did not come for checkup, I left the clinic.
Q: Who is an Orthopaedist?
A: An orthopaedist is a medical doctor who specializes in diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to the skeletal system. An orthopaedic doctor attends to any disorder or condition or injury pertaining to the bones, muscles, joints, and ligaments associated with the skeletal system. These medical professionals treat conditions like arthritis, back pain, sports injuries, and leg and foot pain
Q: What is the difference between an Orthopaedist and an Orthopaedic surgeon?
A: Orthopaedists are sometimes mistakenly referred to as orthopaedic surgeons. An orthopaedist deals with conditions related to the musculoskeletal system. He provides pre-surgical consultation and post-surgical follow up. An orthopaedic surgeon provides same care as orthopaedist, but performs surgery as well. He performs surgery to cure back pain, ruptured discs, bone tumours, carpal tunnel, arthritis and other injuries.
Q: Does an Orthopaedist treat foot and ankle related problems?
A: Yes, an orthopaedist deals with musculoskeletal problems within the body. Problems related to foot and ankle fall under this category. Common foot problems like bunions, ankle sprains, arthritis, and sports injury are treated by an orthopaedist. Diagnosis of foot and ankle related problems are done through imaging tests. The mode of treatment depends on the severity of the problem.
Q: Does one need a doctor referral to see an Orthopaedist?
A: One can consult an orthopaedist by booking an appointment. Consultation with the orthopaedist is conducted in his/her clinic or at a healthcare centre. In some cases, patients go to a general physician for any condition or disorder related to the musculoskeletal system. Once preliminary investigation is done, the general physician may refer the patient to an orthopaedist for further examination.
Q: Does an Orthopaedist treat sport injuries?
A: Sport injuries are mostly related to the musculoskeletal system. Injuries like ligament tear, sprains, fractures, muscle pull, or bruises are commonly encountered in sports. An orthopaedist is the right medical doctor to consult for sport injuries. After physical examination, the orthopaedist may ask for imaging tests for confirming the extent of damage and then treat accordingly.
