Visited For Pregnancy
This is my first pregnancy, 7 months, and my experience was very pathetic. Excluding my initial couple of visits, in all other visits she has either blammed me or she has rudely shut me and my husband This is my first pregnancy, 7 months, and my experience was very pathetic. Excluding my initial couple of visits, in all other visits she has either blammed me or she has rudely shut me and my husband down. One such incident i would like to share. When i was 16 weeks pregnant, i had my routine check up with her and out of curiosity i asked that has baby developed the hearing capability. On which she very rudely shut me down saying that patients like you can consume lot of our time and we do not have time to entertain such nonsense. If you really want to know all this then you should have joined prenatal classes. (Which she told us about in our 3rd visit but we chose not to join prenatal classes). I apologized to her that day for asking that ques and told her will not take her time by bombarding ques but just wanted to know that can my baby hear so that i can start talking. But then we let it go. Today when i asked her that how should i prefer to sleep coz when i sleep on sides baby kicks whole night and if i sleep stariaght then my back hurts and i am really concerned about my baby to which she asked me that am i really concerned about my child. There are other similar incidents through out my consultation. We understand that doctors can not sit and ans all the ques of all the patients but what kind of response is where you dont even ans the ques where it concerns the pregnant lady? Is it that if i do not join prenatal classes i have lost the right to know the basic things about pregnancy? more..

Thank you for your feedback.

Consulting rooms are meant for a quick diagnosis and an appropriate course of action. This puts several doctors, including me, under severe time constraints.
There are always more people sitting in the waiting room, looking forward to get their fears and doubts cleared as soon as possible. Questions, which are not so relevant to the said diagnosis and management, are avoided in order to make time for everybody. We maintain a certain degree of friendly relations with each and every one of our patients, but not at the cost of a professional etiquette. We simply waste time answering such questions at the cost of some other patients’ time, sitting anxiously in the waiting room.
This does not mean that I do not take an interest in answering my patients’ questions. We have certain antenatal classes for the same. I conduct these classes, along with my fellow colleagues, on four Sundays, to teach expecting mothers relevant exercises, yoga and meditation. We also answer each and every one of your questions individually there.
One of the primary reasons as to why we started this programme was to keep a separate time and place for questions that are not so important in nature, and can be answered in due time, so that they do not converge on our consulting hours, as that is strictly reserved reasons mentioned above.
Examples of a few other events that my colleagues and I have undertaken are

• The PCOD awareness seminar, conducted in the Hiranandani clubhouse.

• An Infertility awareness programme in Hiranandani hospital.

• A menopausal awareness programme in Hiranandani hospital.

• Extensive counseling sessions for patients trying for a healthy baby and prenatal counseling for expectant mothers In Currae hospital

All these initiatives have been conducted on Sundays for my patients whom I have personally invited. My team and I have worked to invite these patients and have conducted these events satisfactorily.

I would also like to make it clear that getting into disputes with hospital/clinic staff is not tolerated. All of us work hard everyday to try our best to satisfy each one of our patients. Any displeasure or grievances can be communicated without heated arguments in the reception area. Simply stating them to our receptionist in a calm and composed manner is sufficient for us to improve our services if required, and we will reach out to you as soon as possible.

I hope I have replied effectively to you, and that my points and conditions are clear to you.
I wish you all the best for all that is to come.
