The most unprofessional doctor I have ever met when my wife Chhanda's pregnancy was at the initial stage back in October 2016. We had travelled from Bangalore to Calcutta for the festival season just a day after we came to know about my wife's pregnancy. We had visited the doctor as suggested by one relative. Never knew what was in store for us. As soon as we informed the doctor that we would be travelling back to Bangalore at the end of the vacation she became furious and started shouting at us. She tried her best to frighten us that even air travel could be harmful during pregnancy, especially at the early stages. In that case I would say, is there any moment in life safe at all, Ms. Patra? Anyway, nothing could explain her misbehavior at us apart from the fact that she was going to lose one 'customer'. A big no for this doctor.
Dr. Sharmishtha Patra replied
As a doctor, I inform every patient that there is risk of Miscarriage i.e. loss of Pregnancy, in first 12 weeks of Pregnancy. If you tell the patient that it is safe to travel and if miscarriage occurs then also patient will blame the doctor, for not informing. It is most unfortunate that it is breaching the doctor-patient relationship and faith. Rest of your allegations that I informed the patient not to travel because of losing one customer is false and has been written to defame me. I have checked my records and found that I have not seen any patient named Chhanda Mondal in October 2016, so it is a false review to defame me.
