Very rushed and dismissive. She did not have the time to adequately discuss things with me, and questions I had felt like an inconvenience. The little advice I did receive appeared to contradict what I have been told by other doctors. Not the standard of care you would expect from a family doctor, I will always opt to see an alternative doctor in future.
I went to see Dr Ramesh last week, the first impression of her was very nice and friendly. She firstly greeted me and introduced herself which made me feel familiar with her and eased my nerve of seeing a doctor. She explained my problems clearly and answered my concerns patiently, what she did is more than what I usually expect from a doctor. A highly recommended doctor.
A very rushed appointment, the doctor was typing out a prescription as I was talking - I did not need another prescription ! The doctor was very dismissive.
I have seen this Doctor twice and both times I felt rushed. I don't feel that she listens and when I said one time that I couldn't stop crying she didn't even address it - this does not make you feel like you matter or that the Doctor even cares. The last time I went I said that I thought I may have an infection in my pelvic region and she didn't even examine me or take swabs - just prescribed antibiotics. I was told to lose weight, which I already know, however I have a condition which makes that incredibly hard and I didn't feel that she was very tactful in her delivery. She is pleasant enough - not rude but just seems to be rushing patients oput the door ;- I notice when I am waiting that her patients all seem to whizz in and out, whereas other doctors spend the necessary time with their patients.
My recent experience with this doctor left me feeling extremely disappointed. I was not listened to with much empathy and very few questions were asked about the issues I had wished to discuss. I wasn't given any advice or support on the issues I raised and the appointment lasted about 3 minutes. Whilst her manner was generally pleasent, I didn't feel properly listened to.
