Visited For Ear Pain
Hello folks!! We booked an appointment with Dr. Amitav after my wife was experiencing severe pain in her ear and jaw for 2-3 weeks.

We booked an appointment with Dr. Amitav after my wife was experiencing severe pain in her ear and jaw for 2-3 weeks. Visiting dental clinics didn't help as they gave muscle relaxants which didn't help with pain in any way. After booking an appointment and other formalities (which set us back by 1500/-) we saw esteemed Dr Amitav. His chamber was quite interesting- Few interns (mostly female) were assisting the doctor and the chemistry reminded me of my college days when during ragging sessions it was compulsory for juniors to laugh at every stupid joke and nod affirmatively to every suggestion by senior.

Coming back to our experience with him, After making the initial diagnosis (with a torch) he pronounced my wife to be suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia (a neuropathic disorder) . We were taken aback with the diagnosis; thankfully the second recommendation followed soon as jaw misalignment. Hence 2 minutes into the clinic we were listening how the brain need to be cut open and operated OR or the jaw needs to aligned with an operation (at this point of time his sense of humor was at its peak when he was informing us with a grin how we are caught between devil and deep sea; and the like law abiding citizens, interns had to appreciate the sense of humor by laughing along). As a followup, we were given contact number of another doctor. Dr. Amitav was kind enough to propose to set up an appointment but we refused (clearly a blasphemy to disagree with him in that room).

Finally better sense prevailed and we visited our family doctor (in hometown). He diagnosed the root-cause to be wisdom tooth and recommended gargles with hot water. 3 days of gargle were sufficient to cure my wife (no pain for last 6 months).

I don't want to pass any judgement on the learned doctor and let the reader draw their own inference.

Pls don't visit this guy unless you want to be mentally agitated and left feeling miserable. You are made to wait endlessly, he consults for less than 5 mins, doesn't allow the patient to talk. Comment Pls don't visit this guy unless you want to be mentally agitated and left feeling miserable. You are made to wait endlessly, he consults for less than 5 mins, doesn't allow the patient to talk. Comments unwantedly. He cracks silly jokes (and he has these assistants who just sit taking notes) looks at them and their protocol is to nod and laugh. Scares you by saying you need a surgery even without a scan. Charges exorbitant amount for a 5 min visit. Pathetic. more..

My father went for a routine checkup. Dr. Shukla has a very narcissistic personality, horrible manners and very rude.

Dr. Shukla has a very narcissistic personality, horrible manners and very rude. Recommends to use his own medication, own hospital scan claiming that the ones done outside are 'poor quality'.

When told him about a previous appointments, ridiculous other doctors including his peers and colleagues.

Definitely won't recommend him to anyone at all.
