Where to go for the best Ultrasound in Gurgaon

Update (Feb 10, 2015):

This article is really old of course (originally written on Feb 8, 2009), and since then there are now many more hospitals in Gurgaon each of which offers Ultrasound and many other diagnostic facilities. However, one thing has remained. My recommendation for the Best Ultrasound in Gurgaon remains the same: Dr. Girish Pandit. He is still the best in Gurgaon for this. Countless friends have visited him and have come back satisfied. My wife has been to him multiple times as well and have always come back satisfied.

By satisfied I mean that you don’t feel hurried; you feel that your questions are answered; you feel that you are in a professional environment and feel at ease; and you feel that the doctor is very competent.

Outside of his skill and professionalism, his clinic’s facilities are excellent too. His upgraded clinic has a very comfortable waiting environment. His staff is friendly. And the rooms where the ultrasounds take place are well done (compared to most hospitals where none of this exists). He has state of the art equipment.

So while the original article doesn’t hold much value anymore, the advice from it to visit Dr. Girish Pandit is still very much valid:

Dr. Girish Pandit is still the best bet for Ultrasound in Gurgaon.

Negligent and irresponsible staff at Max hospital Gurgaon

On Saturday, I had a mishap where my one year old daughter accidentally hit me in my eye. This resulted in what is called as “corneal abrasion” – basically, she ended up leaving a couple of scratches on the cornea of one of my eyes. And this was absolutely unbearable – I was in so much pain that we had to immediately rush to the hospital.

As usual, we went straight to Max (we like Max hospital). And at the OPD registration desk, we asked for an appointment with whoever was available in the ophthalmology department. I was in a lot of pain, and the person behind the desk could see that. I was holding a cloth on my eye. He asked me to wait a bit, and then within a few minutes told me that no doctor is available in this department.

I was shocked. For a multi-specialty hospital to not have an eye specialist available during normal working hours was something I couldn’t imagine. It was around 11 am when we visited Max. But this is not even the beginning of what was wrong with this picture.

Artemis hospital cares more for its money than it cares for you

I always had the idea that Artemis is a little more professionally run than some of the other healthcare facilities in Gurgaon. I have even written some good things about it in the past. The past week has however taught me that such is not the case. At the bottom of it all, they are just trying to make a sale and will do anything to get a customer, even though it may not be in the best interest of a customer.

Two incidents happened which has almost ensured that I am never going back to Artemis.
