[Resolved] Apollo Hospital — Telemedicine Department's Negligence
I am a patient of Dr.J Raja Mahesh, from Chennai Apollo First Med.For the last 5years I am under his supervision.This year I planned to do a telemedicine with Him from Kolkata.As I am having serious disease and due to some mishap happened to my family I couldn't go to Chennai this time to meet my Dr physically. On 29th June I called Mr.SURYA from Apollo telemedicine department to get an appointment.He immediately told me it is not possible due to some issues (issue was.not clearly stated).Though he took my appointment. and confirmed me he will let me know within a week.This week on Monday (6th July)again I called and got to know he did not get doctor 's confirmation yet.As the meeting with the Dr is too much urgent for me I called again on 9th July.this time his reply was a surprise for me, he informed there is an issue going on from Chennai Telemed Depth and he was more than reluctant this time. My husband called up chennai directly and they informed there is no problem going on and telemedicine is working. Not sure how a person can be so reluctant in his job while he is dealing with a patient.And how dare he give a wrong information. I want it to be escalated to higher authority to take proper action on this.
