Thank you for the kind words. I am sure your husband will do well.
I am aware of the waiting period & am working on it. It is the number of patients with acute/ severe pain that have to be adjusted daily without an appointment is what increases the waiting period. However, no excuses from our side; we are looking at different ways to cut down on the waiting period.

Faily disappointed with his advise. My mom is suffering from arthritis from last 8 years but doctor is saying she is not suffering from arthritis. She is also suffering from rhematoid fever but as per Faily disappointed with his advise. My mom is suffering from arthritis from last 8 years but doctor is saying she is not suffering from arthritis. She is also suffering from rhematoid fever but as per doctor the fever from which she suffering is normal viral fever. It waste of our money of Rs.7000 at your clinic.
Also please advice Mr. Akerkar to improve his attitude and communication with patients.

Dear Ms. Kunda,

There are many causes of joint pain/ bodyache that look like arthritis but are not arthritis. For eg. Stress/ tension can also 'arthritis-like' joint pain & bodyache. Fever (feverish feeling) that is not recordable as fever on a thermometer cannot be called true fever.

Approaching a specialist with a fixed diagnosis in mind may not be a very prudent idea. In such a scenario, a consultant usually finds it difficult to change the mindset of the patient and accompanying person, thereby maybe perceived as being attitudinal or lacking communication skills at that point of time.The unusually high amount spent at the clinic must have been the cost of additional special investigations to confirm the diagnosis.

All said & done, I do not have any ill feelings about this post & would be happy to review your mother as well as clear your doubts about the diagnosis without any consultation fees. Do drop in a mail at mumbaiarthritisclinic@gmail.com regarding the appointment.
