Visited For Marital Problems
I do not recommend the doctor
Hoped for better: Treatment satisfactionValue for money
Dr Gaurav treated me over a year or so. I needed help with Anxiety, depression, marital issues as well as sexual issues. Initially he claimed he was equipped to be a sexologist. The primary care & drugs provided did help with anxiety & insomnia.
I also have issues with dishonesty and knowing this also Dr Gaurav lied to me & overcharged me when it was time to treat my sexual issues. He claimed to make an appointment with another counsellor which he hadn't l, and still charged me for the wasted visit. Most of all I'm appalled that he lied *** ** **** ******** ***** *** ********* I've switched doctors now.
Dr. Gaurav Kulkarni replied
thank you so much for the feedback.
iam glad that the treatment and the counselling process has helped you with you issues of anxiety, depression and paranoia.
I would have been happier if you had taken the medications and the follow up as suggested by me, it would have helped you way better in dealing your issues. Unfortunately in the entire year you were able to visit just three or four times in the peak of crisis where therapy/ marital/sexual issues are difficult to resolve instantaneously.
the sexual issues that you are talking about needed a female therapist as well because i was treating you and your husband individually. To bring in objectivity a therapist was needed as you have been suffering from severe trust issues. It would have been good had you continued the treatment/ come for regular follow up/ not waited for call from the doctors clinic to visit the doctor. We would have been able to help you holistically.
where charges are concerned, the consultation fees were known to you, for the doctor and the therapist, sessions with you have always been way far longer than with any patient. In the absence of the therapist, i conducted a session with you along with medical prescription given, there is no question of overcharging or loot, you paid professional fees.
i try my best to be available for patients in clinic and when possible outside clinic hours as well. Its unfortunate that you feel disregard for the same inspite being so much better emotionally and psychologically post the treatment.
