I had gone there for treatment of retinopathy for my diabetic father-in-law. Patient id – 546303. The retina specialist Dr. Neeraj Sanduja referred us to Dr. Atul Luthra for control of diabetes at first. I had already told them that my father in law is here for a short period and I want the eyes to be treated. They assured me that everything will be fine. While Dr Luthra bought the diabetes under control, we went back to Dr. Neeraj Sanduja for further treatment of eyes. He again asked me for two tests which costed 8000 Rs. Just after the testing he told us, that this cannot be treated now, the diabetes needs to be controlled for continuously for next 3 months and then only laser can be done. I was just shocked.
If this was the case that a diabetic patient cannot be treated without a 3 months control of sugar, why did they even do the test ? It was very apparent from the first blood tests that the patient is under very poor diabetic control for the past 3 months (hba1c test resulted 10.7), then any ordinary man can say that laser treatment cannot be done now. They just did the test to take 8000 Rs. and then took their hands off.
But I admire the thought and presence of mind these doctors show to take money off common people. With this kind of brains you can make money anywhere, why dishonor a noble (not so noble any more except a few) profession. Nobody objects to your 5 min – 750 to 1200 Rs visit, why cheat people then ?
