Doctor is friendly and environment is good. All staffs are very cooperative and very helpful.must visit for cardiac issues.
Dr. Nitin Patki carefully investigated my health issues and studied the problems in depth. He made perfect diagnosis after ECG, 2- D Echo and angiography. At the end, he suggested excellent medical prescription based on all the tests and gave an honest advice.
We waited for ONE HOUR at Shashwat hospital for this doctor to show up. They called and wanted us to be there at 8:45am. It's almost an hour and this guy has not shown up. Unacceptable behavior and highly unprofessional. Doctors like him have gotten carried away by their credentials and think they can behave in any manner they want with their patients. I have a business to run and don't have all day to wait. I will highly discourage anyone from dealing with Dr. Patki.
Found this doctor more indiscipline . When asked about queries he replied in harsh way. ** ***** ** ***** *** ** respect relatives of patient as they are already stressed and in tension. His reply are very short and non informative.
