Orthopedic doctor in Gurgaon

Problem in your bones?

It is about time I did another review of a doctor that I have mentioned earlier in a different context, but have visited several times since then. The doctor that I am talking about is Dr. Rajesh Bawari, an orthopedic surgeon who consults out of the Max hospital in Gurgaon several times a week.

Dr. Bawari has become more of a family doctor to my family now – by this I mean several of my relatives have now taken consultation from him and come out very happy. So he is the doctor I recommend without a thought when someone asks for a good Orthopedic doctor.

My cousin had some problem in his foot which was being incorrectly diagnosed for a very long time, which left him in a lot of trouble. However, Dr. Bawari finally correctly diagnosed it as Bone TB and treated it successfully. My sister-in-law had problems with her wrists with some cysts, and she also went and saw Dr. Bawari and is much better now. My mom consults him as well.

I recently had problems with my ankle and went and saw Dr. Bawari and am undergoing treatment for it.

The best thing I like about Dr. Bawari (aside from his medical expertise of course) is that he is a calm-headed doctor who is not given to theatrics (as some doctors are). He comes across as intelligent and has never induced any fear or panic in me or people I know who have consulted him. I think part of the job of a doctor is to give the patient a “peace of mind” such that the patient should feel that he/she is in good hands and there is nothing to worry about. This is something that Dr. Bawari does very well.

I would recommend Dr. Bawari with no reservations. If you are looking for a good Orthopedic doctor or surgeon in Gurgaon, do visit him at Max hospital. And do come back here and leave comments on how your experience was (good or bad).

Pediatrician in Gurgaon – Dr. Siddhartha Gogia

One of the readers of this site (thanks Prabhakaran) wrote in almost a month ago to tell me about a pediatrician that he visits for their baby boy, his name being Dr. Siddhartha Gogia. It took me a while to put together this article based on his recommendation, but here it is finally.

Coincidentally, I have had the opportunity to interact with Dr. Gogia directly as well, so I am including my impression as well after Prabhakaran’s.

Always take a second opinion when visiting a doctor

If you look around this site, you will notice that I visit hospitals quite a bit (makes me look like someone who is really ill). For the past few months, I have been having a lot of pain in my wrist. It hurts when it is bent at an angle and I put any stress on it.

So, I visited an orthopedic expert who has a clinic in DLF Phase I (I do not want to name him here). This person is supposed to be a very experience doctor (he probably is, and I don’t doubt it). He examined my wrist, moved it around, pressed it a couple of times, and asked me when it hurt. He immediately gave me a suspect diagnosis and asked me get an MRI done.
