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).

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.
