I hope my experience with this doctor will help other patients choose wisely as there is no dearth of good gynaecologist .
Today ,I went for a Pap Smear . My appointment was scheduled for 9.30 am & I was taken in after an hour wait .
Once inside ,she asked me to remove my clothes . After another 15 mins,she comes back & starts to do the needful .
As you all are aware that gynaecological examinations are not the most comfortable thing to get through . So ,when she inserted the Speculum ,I was feeling the pain & discomfort which I think is normal . She told me to relax . I was trying to be at my best . Then in a rude tone she tells me DO YOU WANT ME TO SEND YOU BACK TO YOUR DOCTOR ????????
Who is Male . DO YOU??????
Almost as if she was threatening me .
Is this Professionalism ???
She might have a head full of knowledge but she lacks Compassion & Empathy ,which is the hallmark of a good doctor .
I would never ever go to this doctor again .
Dr Ravichander quickly diagnosed a problem i had that three doctors before were stumped on. She has seen me through two pregnancies, is kind and knowledgable and doesn't push anything on a person. Her office is nice and well staffed. She performed a c-section on me and I left the hospital a full day earlier than usual due to a very speedy recovery. Some people on here have complained she is cold, she is in fact very pleasant. I would much rather have a knowledgeable doctor who tells me what exactly is happening then someone who is "nice" and doesn't actually help me.
This is my second pregnancy seeing Dr. Ravichander, and I would recommend anyone to her. I never have to wait long, and staff are so friendly. At first I wasn't sure because she isn't real chatty, but is very professional. She is very thorough and when I was in hospital I was extremely grateful to her and confident in her knowledge and ability. I felt like she has my baby and my best interests in heart and trust her completely.
I should have listened to the reviews about this Dr. when I read negative things about her. First time I went in to see her, she was as nice as could be. The wait was terrible and her schedule obviously does not fit with a working individual. I had to come back for a checkup, the wait to see her was 2 hours long.. So I had to constantly reschedule because she "fell behind" and was "busy". I don't care if your "busy" if you have patients to tend to that have appointments and have been waiting to see you. Be professional and don't keep them waiting, after all they are the reason why she has a job. I finally got in to see her after countless rescheduled appointments. Through this whole time she refused to talk about my blood test results with me or give me any information. I actually had to ask them to send them to my family doctor before she would start talking about it. Not only did she make me wait 5 weeks for the results, but her office & staff didn't even notify me that they had come in at all. Which I found very unprofessional. Every time I would ask her a question inquiring about an IUD all she would do is give me a pamphlet and tell me to read it. Which doesn't help me at all, every time I asked a question she made it seem like I was wasting her time & would hand me a pamphlet and tell me to read it. Needless to say I will definitely be finding another Dr that has "time" for their patients.
I seen Dr. Ravichander with my last pregnancy. She was always quick but showed that she cared. She took good care of me. Her staff are awesome. I know before 2012 her staff were rude and ridiculous but from 2012-present her staff are new and awesome. I know she is an extremely busy specialist, working in two hospitals, her clinic and also a once a month clinic in a rural community so she is a bit slower with her busy clinics and I also know that she has resident dr.'s observing some of her clinics which also slows her down but honestly she is probably one if the only woman specialists in Saskatoon where you can get in within a week or two of your referral and get better treatment than other doctors. People who complain about her are ignorant and obviously impatient, selfish and uneducated in the medical profession! I will go back to her. FYI if you have or had a problem with her or any other Dr. why wouldn't you say something to their face instead of blaming then for your own stupidity! Just saying :)
I had Dr. Ravichander as my prenatal doctor and also went to her afterwards after my family doctor referred me for a problem with pain post partum. Her beside manner is atrocious. She treats you like a idiotic nuisance who is wasting her time. Prenatal - she was simply brusque and visits were very short. She was uninterested in me as a patient. When she examined me post partum she actually told me that I didn't know how to have sex and that if I just did it right, then it wouldn't hurt. She showed me the 'wrong' way (hurting my scar and shocking me) and then the 'right' way. It was very embarrassing the way she spoke and treated me and I left her office in tears. Her staff also books in 5-6 people at a time. If you want to actually be seen during your appointment time, show up 20-30 minutes early, because 5 other people have the same appointment time as you. If we have another baby, I will be going with the midwives or any other doctor but her.
I read the reviews before I went to see Dr. Ravichander and I wish I would have listened to everyone who had advised how horrible this woman's bedside manner is before deciding to keep my appointment. I went to have a proceedure done and ended up spending my time in the stirrups crying because of how she treated me. I don't expect to be given flowers or welcomed with a hug but you don't treat your patients as though they are stupid or insinuate that they don't care about themselves because they had to reschedule their appointment. Life doesn't always work out as planned - that doesn't give anyone a right to LOSE IT on me because I waited before rescheduling. I'd rather get sick due to not seeing a doctor then have to see this repulsive woman EVER again.
