Consulted Dr. Jayesh Baviskar (Joint Replacement Surgeon) for Foot Pain
I do not recommend the doctor
The doctor told us to take a crabe bandage from hospital and use it on foot but we told that we already have it. So he starts telling us how to tie the bandage so we listened to that. after consultation first of all he charged Rs 1500 instead of Rs 1200 as written on practo. Secondly, he charged Rs 500 just for telling us how to use bandage.
Also the hospital is unethical. Before Xray we asked the cost for the xray, to which they said 1200 Rs but after the xray is done they said it is Rs 1500.
Despite desperate need to see a doctor, I will suggest not to visit this hospital or doctor as it seemed that they are charging you money for the amount of time you sit in that place.

i apologize for the confusion in my fees, it was not updated on my profile on Practo which has been done now. If you get the bill to the hospital, they would show you the break up of charges and refund you extra amount, if any, charged to you. You had a crepe Bandage and had been using it improperly, I spent time and demonstrated to you how it has to be applied in a correct and scientific fashion to maximize its utilization, be of therapeutic use and help you get better. I explained risks associated with improper application and demonstrated various ways it can be applied improperly so that you do not repeat the same mistake again. My extra charges are for the same effort and demonstration. I wish you the best of health.
