Geget2nasir on May 13, 2011
I am basically from Bangalore and was in pune when I got meeting confirmed to travel to Kenya exactly after 11 days, I got to know about Yellow Fewer Vaccination which is mandatory to take 10 days before travel so I did some research and spot this Dr. details from Just Dial. I had been to Shradha Hospital near Spicer College Road, Pune on 6th May, 2011 for a Yellow Fever Vaccination as I had to travel to Kenya exactly after 10 day. First when I called one day before Dr. said the vaccination would cost INR 2,500/- + INR 500/- consultation fee. I felt the charges are little high but still trusting the word of a Doctor I believed and accepted to take Yellow Fever Vaccination from him. I knew that in Bangalore I can get a same Yellow Fever Vaccination in just Rs. 260 by Government of India but still looking at my urgency I had to undergo this in Pune link for more details
The moment I said about my urgency to get this vaccination he started cheating me, when I came he said the cost is INR 3500 + some medical examination charges I assumed, whatever it could be that can’t go above INR 500-1000, he examined my Blood Pressure, BP, HIV Test, Physical examination which was also fine but when finally he swiped my credit card without even telling me the total amount it was for the total amount of INR 9705/- which was a big shock. I couldn’t understand what made him to jump your charges from 3,500 to 9,700 when asked he gave the below break-up
1. Consultation Fee – 500
2. HIV Test – 450
3. Blood Pressure Check – 100
4. Yellow Fever Vaccination – 3,500 (STAMARIL vaccination where there is no MRP)
5. Some Tablets – 255
6. AloeVera Juice – 290
7. Consultation – 2,500 for some odd reasons
8. Some Ointment– 1,200
9. Table Pilen – 720
Total – INR 9705/-
To get a Yellow Fever vaccination in Bangalore it wouldn’t cost more than Rs. 260 and he have looted Rs 9705/- which I am unable to accept. I would like to further investigate on the above charges and call price validation from STAMARIL authorities, I would like to ask this question to Union of Doctors and request for justification.
