Consulted Dr. Meghana Giri (Gynecologist) for Urinary Tract Infection (Uti)
I do not recommend the doctor
Hoped for better: Wait timeTreatment satisfaction
So this is a long story, and one of the most horrific experiences I've had till date.
Disclaimer- The feedback is not specific to Dr. Meghana Giri, given I only interacted with her for 5 mins, but a larger feedback for the nurses and Junior doctors at Rising Medicare Kharadi.
I was suffering from urinary tract itching and mild infection for about 4-5 days and booked an appointment for the doctor on Friday for 7pm. I reached on time and was asked to wait for the doctor; 1 hour passed by and I had some other commitments so I had to leave and rescheduled my appointment to Saturday 11am.
On Saturday, at 11 am, I was asked to first visit a pre-OPD room where they noted my vitals. Then after 25 mins of wait, I was asked to meet a Junior doctor who asked me about the history and symptoms. After 10 minutes of pre-diagnosis, I was asked to wait for another 15 mins, post which Dr. Meghana came.
I met the Dr and discussed my symptoms with her, to which she was quite patient and examined me well. I had to repeat alot of things I mentioned during my pre-diagnosis, but I was happy with the overall experience. She asked me to take a urine and a blood test post which she would prescribe me treatment. The tests took about 15-20 mins and I was asked to collect reports and visit the doctor the next day, ~12pm.
On Sunday, is when the disturbing experiences started to unfold. I reached the hospital at 1215 pm, and the doctor was unavailable. After 30 mins of waiting, another doctor, Junior Doctor No.2, visits me and asks about my symptoms. I had a very frustrating reaction, given I had not been prescribed any treatment for the last 3 days and my symptoms were only getting degraded. To which, Junior Doctor No.2, calls Dr. Meghana and asks for prescribed medicine. I told her that my symptoms were a bit more than yesterday and she asked me if she could examine me. I said yea sure and then she+ 2 other nurses escort me to an OT room.
I was asked to lie down for examination. The OT room was very very disturbing, it had a bed sheet that still had blood stains on it, a beige coloured plastic bed-mat on top of it that still had marks of someone who had just been operated and cotton swabs around the bed that were soaked with blood and betadine. There were 3 people in the room to examine me and I felt so horrific that I left the room in tears refusing to let them do the examination. I quickly took my reports and left the hospital.
This was one of the most traumatising experiences of visiting a Gynae and I want to write this feedback to highlight the degraded conditions and behaviour of the staff at Rising Medicare Kharadi hospital. I hope someone takes notice and this gets escalated to the authorities.
