Apollo Hospital doesn't have good doctors, and what is worse is that they try to cover it up. I posted this review on the Apollo Multispeciality Hospitals, Kolkata, Google Maps page, but they are maliciously removing genuine reviews written by real users. Such unethical conduct is in violation of Google's Terms of Service and should not be condoned by Google or any other platform. So, for peace of mind, I'm posting my review here.

It's important to note that there is no law against telling the truth. In fact, Google encourages truthful reviews. Removing truthful reviews only exacerbate customers' anger, and they may choose to post their review on more public platforms. People who DO NOT want honest reviews from the public perhaps SHOULD NOT sign up for public reviews.

My check-ups with Dr. Sibabrata Banerjee left me disappointed. When you visit his chamber, his assistant collects your test reports and asks you to wait outside. Once you're inside, your reports are returned. They digitally scan and store these reports, as the doctor and his students are able to access your current and previous test results without you having to provide the physical reports. All this is done without your knowledge or consent. This may seem harmless, but this doctor is a panel doctor of insurers who are notorious for claim denials.

Upon entering his chamber for the first time, I saw the doctor was surrounded by an entourage of medical students, who acted as his minions. The doctor orders tests, and these students are tasked with reading the test reports and spotting problems. I guess consulting with patients for 4 minutes at Rs. 1, 200 a pop isn't enough, so, for extra cash, this doctor tutors a bunch of wealthy medical school students in his chamber.

Every time I visited this doctor, his room was full of students, but he neither introduced them to me nor asked for my permission for them to be there. Medical ethics say that medical information is private and can only be shared with the consent of the patient. Ethics is not this doctor's strong point: I was paying him for his consultation, and he was using me as a guinea pig to train his students for personal gain—without my knowledge or consent. He showed a lack of interest and conveyed the impression that I am beneath his consideration. Perhaps this intimidates other patients and prevents them from asking anything, including, "Who are these young people lingering in your chamber?"

A doctor is supposed to ask the right questions; not take his patients for granted. However, in this case, the doctor fails to ask anything, and he makes it difficult for you to even ask your own questions. How are you going to discuss your problems in front of a group of strangers? Life is cheap in this part of the world, and this doctor treats his patients like gut flora.

Despite collecting Rs. 1, 200 for his consultation, he always relied on his students to assess my test results. The students were tasked with finding warning signs and anomalies in my tests, but they missed critical indicators because they really didn't care about me. They were more interested in playing on their pricey laptops that their wealthy parents had purchased for them to carry to private tuition. The doctor himself does not even bat an eye, even if your test results are way off. It's his student's job to find anomalies in your tests, and that is what they are paying the doctor for. People go to good hospitals to see doctors because there is no shortage of frauds in the part of the world, but this guy is abusing his power and milking his patients for everything he can get out of them. By my calculation, your life is worth what Dr. Sibabrata Banerjee's students are paying him for each real life patient that they get to mess with.

After a 4-minute consultation, during which the doctor may or may not speak, the doctor asks you to step outside his chamber while he prepares your prescription and a list of tests for your next appointment. I assume he briefs his students about your condition during this time. When I was waiting outside the doctor's door for the paperwork, I couldn't help but feel that I was being used a guinea pig without my consent. Finally, after a few minutes, his assistant comes out and hands over the prescription and test list to you. I do not know who writes the prescription because it is printed, but I have noticed numerous errors in the prescription. The test list always contains the same tests, a simple cut-and-paste job.

Tell me, does any other doctor ask you to wait outside his chamber while he prepares your prescription and test list?

Civilized people are taught since childhood to respect other people's privacy and always seek permission before sharing their sensitive information. This fundamental principle is called CONSENT, but consent is not a concept that this doctor is familiar with. Medical malpractice is not uncommon in India. This is what happens when children are not raised properly. I blame his parents for his greed and misbehavior.

Apollo Hospitals' social media squads are very busy. If you visit their Google Maps profile and sort the reviews by'Latest First, ' you can observe this pattern(refer to my image below). It seems there is a consistent influx of fake reviews being posted on Google by Apollo Hospitals daily. You can see 5-star reviews being posted every few minutes, one after the other. The timestamps on these fabricated purchased reviews provide evidence of their falsity. Apollo Hospitals is writing the fake reviews and congratulating themselves—it's quite pathetic!
