Ratings for Dr. Vijaya Chetty
It is a rare find to come across a GP that is outstanding. But that is what we found with Dr Chetty Been seeing her for several years now, and the whole family enjoy seeing her (as much as you can enjoy anything when you're unwell), and time and again she has gone out of her way for us. Myself personally with mobility issues, it is always a breeze to go in and be seen promptly but never rushed. More than once Dr Chetty has gone out of her way to see me outside normal times. Same for my husband when he had quite severe foot issues Dr Chetty is a real gem.
Dr Chetty is a great physician. Had bounced around a few GPs on Gold Coast before chancing upon her, and have now been a regular patient for a while. Very knowledgeable on diabetes, takes a genuine interest in lifestyle issues such as diet, exercise etc, rather than just writing a script. Amazingly for this day and age she rang me to follow up and see how I was going following a recent procedure. Genuinely caring and thorough doctor. Your health is in good hands
I saw Dr Chetty at the Medical Centre on Palm Beach Ave on a weekend, due to a mild eye injury. Her level of care was excellent, and she explained everything well, fixed the problem and put my mind at ease. Will now be looking to make her my regular GP
The level of care I received from this doctor was alarming. She kept making me do tests and was never willing to diagnose anything. I had concerning symptoms and she made me do a bunch of tests that all came back with concerning results and then told me I should do nothing and come back in 3 months to see if it would go away on its own. I had to insist that she refer me to another doctor who immediately recconized my symptoms and diagnosed me with a disease that can be life threatening when left undiagnosed. I returned to her later for less serious problems and she still made me do tests. I told her that I would be away for two weeks and she said I could come in for my results when I got home. Her office called me on my trip to let me know I had very concerning results but would not tell me the test results over the phone even though I was out of town. She had told me that she was testing for cancer, pregnancy and STDs. It ruined my trip and ended up being low iron. She is the most incompetent doctor I've ever been to and I don't think she knows what she's doing at all.
I have been going to Doctor Chetty for over 7 years. She has always been very helpful with all of my concerns. I found that when she worked at HQ building her time with you was much better than it is now at the Medical Precint. Whilst I still use Dr. Chetty as my GP For some basic medical issues (flu, vaccinations), I needed to find another female doctor who wanted to take that extra time and listen the way Dr Chetty used too. Unfortunately this is the way bulk billing Doctors are.... Busy....and rushed to put the next patient through... She is still a great doctor- who just needs to go back to the way she started.
I have found that ongoing recurring problems for me were treated with topical medications and I was never given the advice or education of how to resolve the root of the problem. Did some research of my b own to rid myself of a 2 year long problem and now I am so much happier and healthier. This doctor should have pointed me this way especially since I had been to her over a dozen times for the same recurring health issue.
