Consulted Dr. Sourav Das (Psychiatrist) for Abnormal, Unusual, Strange Behavior
I do not recommend the doctor
Hoped for better: Doctor friendlinessExplanation of the health issue
My experience with Dr. Sourav Das was very bad. He was impatient and did not give me the opportunity to explain my points - and also evaded some of my important questions. He just pushed towards getting the meeting over quickly.
More than any other specialty psychiatrists need to hear out patients - this was very much missing. I am highly disappointed seeing such utter lack of commitment and unprofessional behaviour of Dr. Sourav Das.
It was a loss of time and Rs 700 for me, and would recommend everybody not to consult Dr. Sourav Das.

Thank you Ma'am for your valuable feedback. We'll definitely convey this across and it will help us to further improve our services in the future. However, from our records, it seems like this was your first visit with us. Please note, in some complicated cases, 20-25 mins is not enough to understand every nuances of the patient's history, hence the doctor sometimes guides the direction of the discussion towards the points more relevant for the diagnosis and management plan, which may give the erroneous impression that the meeting was 'rushed.' In these cases, it usually takes 3-6 sittings at-least to fully understand the nature of problem, interconnected personal issues etc. The timings are kept at 20-25 mins to ensure lower treatment costs and making it more affordable for the common man, as majority of the cases can be diagnosed in 1-2 sittings itself. Thank you once again for your feedback and we're sad that your meeting with us was unsatisfactory.
