There is a misunderstanding. My professional fee varies between 300 to 500 depending upon first/ follow up visits.( clearly mentioned on practo site -move your cursor on the" i " next to fees
In reality I should have charged you Rs 555+other charges ( syringe, needle,glove, spirit swab, maintenance of cold chain ie. fridge that works on invertor, Biomedical waste disposal charges of PMC ,printing/writing and issuing certificate) you have conveniently forgotten to account for these . But I rounded it off to 500. No one had committed to you that my consultation fees are Rs 200.
Doctors/ Paediatricians are required to attend emergency calls at hospital. I'm surprised to find that a grown adult like you who resceduled his appointment twice finds it objectionable to have waited for 25 to 30 minutes. By the way your appointment was at 6.30 pm & not 6.15 pm ( details can be cross - checked you checked in at 6.28 pm ) I would have preferred it if you would have requested me for a concession explaining your financial situation rather than writing up a misguiding feedback.
