payal k, December 2019
My father was admitted in Jan 19 for a brain bleed
he was kept under observation for a few days and then the surgery was performed
When he was under observation in ICU he was feeling cold but the staff said we cant increase the temperature but you can buy a hot blanket we have for Rs 3000
So I was forced to buy 1
When I reviewed the bill we were charged for a doctors visit Rs 7500 every day but I never saw the surgeon to ask questions or get an update
When I questioned this I was told he was consulted over phone
Then my father wanted to gets his eyes checked
so we requested and a doctor came but I never got a report
The problem is you are not informed when these doctors check the patient even if you sitting right outside the ICU
When I asked the attending doctor to tell what was reported in the eye reports
the attending doctor told me to ask the eye doctor (who wasnt there) for a proper diagnosis
So I dont understand the job of an attenting doctor then if you cant even read and interpret medical reports
I was charged for this too but never got an advise
dipika khona, December 2019
