Dr Nivedita (Nitu) Bajekal
14th March 2023
I had a rather unpleasant experience with this doctor. I went to see her in a desperate state, struggling with severe long covid, gynae problems including a very large fibroid & hormonal issues (peri). What a waste of a lot of money. She was running very late and once I finally went into my appointment, felt very rushed, despite me bursting into tears she showed very little empathy, wrote a few fast and furious scribbled notes of a piece of paper, which I could barely read once home. The appointment was so rushed which was not at all what I had expected, considering I paid privately for the appointment. It was so unhelpful especially as at the time I was struggling with severe fatigue, brain fog and memory problems. I was in such a fragile state I didn’t feel able to speak up at the time. I sobbed when I got home at how pointless the whole thing felt. I honestly felt like I had wasted her time, she told me I didn’t really need to be there as such and should be seen on the NHS, but I had reached out to her to due to the horrendous NHS waiting times. Such a disappointment and sadly would definitely not recommend this doctor. The funny thing is I had be warned by my acupuncturist actually, but wanted to form my own opinion. I wish I had listened.
