Consulted Dr. Bhavesh Gohil (Ophthalmologist/ Eye Surgeon) for Eye Checkup - Comprehensive
I do not recommend the doctor
Hoped for better: Doctor friendlinessExplanation of the health issueWait timeTreatment satisfaction
So he made us wait for more than 35 mins without any information sitting in his cabin, when we went in my mom started explaining her problem but he seemed to be made his mind of what the problem is. He said some issue now and when my mom added more info then suddenly the issue is more grave and it might need to be operated. Sounded very arrogant, when my mom tried to add some info while he was explaining he got angry and asked to shut up till he is done with his explanation. Suddenly he feels it can be thyroid or arthritis or any other issue, so I need MRI, CBC Free T3 T4, and many other tests. And I should also consult a rheumatologist and some other specialists (which I told him that we already are but he no use)
Without informing he tried to clean the eye with needle and when my mom reacted in shock(which I believe anyone will if you don't inform that you will be using needle near their eye) then he got angry and said something like "In my 13 years of experience no body have reacted like that".
All in all please save yourself from a bad experience and don't go to him.
Dr. Bhavesh Gohil replied
we regret u felt bad and it was concern rather than arrogance on our part
1) examination of eyes requires dilatation to check retina so waiting is required 35 mins is the least time in any hospital for complete eye examination
2) your mother had left eye proptosis and swelling also arthristis history she gave so we suggested thyroid and rheumatology opine
3) it was a blunt canula and not a needle and the test is called sac syringing
As she suggested similar test done earlier which she said that the earlier doctor she went to had suggested dcr surgery which she was reluctant to do as she had failed surgeries in the family .so surgery was not suggested by us .we just made it clear that dcr surgeries are succesful.
we cannot advice surgery as she dint allow to the test which is a very simple canula test
her extreme jerk made us tell in a brisk of time not to react like a child just in case it should not harm her any ways
we do have the cctv footage if u require to see again about what history ur mother gave us and why we suggested u for sac syringing examination which to mention was not done as u said ull do next time.
ANY WAYS ITS DIFFICULT TO PLEASE ANY ONE IN A MEDICAL FIELD AND ANY EDUCATED PERSON NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THAT DISCUSSION RATHER THAN CONCLUSIONS CAN HELP IN BETTER TREATMENT .
