Consulted Dr. Santosh Patil (Orthopedist) for Lower Back Pain
Note: This doctor is no longer practicing at
I recommend the doctor
Doctor was good, he did listen the problem with great patience and explained the possible reasons for the same.
Let me write my experience with consultation..
When I planned to consult (Saturday) him I booked appointment at 5PM, I was on time and waiting for doctor. After 10min staff informed me that doctor will be late by 1hour as he was in mid of surgery.
I understood the situation and came back by 6PM.
He suggested to me take MRI scan and asked me to come on Monday.
Being a working professional I had to adjust my day and reached hospital on time with my reports on Monday 5.30pm. After waited for 30mins staff informed me that doctor cannot make it today and asked me to come next day 9am.
I really felt bad this time, I would have been more happier if they would have informed me this before my appointment time.I had to drive all the way from office with pain but of no use. And should bare this pain for 1more day.
I would suggest to avoid this kind of situations in future which helps the patients to be more comfortable with treatment.

Thanks for feedback, look forward to fix the issues.
Consultation was at corporate hospital, hospital staff was asked to inform the nonavailability but it was not conveyed( hospital administration will be informed).
I gave options to discuss MRI on what's app,to use technology in difficult time but it was refused.
