Consultants Visits
Your consulting doctor will make a visit soon after admission. Subsequently, he / she will visit you during his / her visiting hours or in case of an emergency.

Patients are usually admitted under a single consultant though another consultant may be called in if required. Also in an Emergency / OPD admission, you will be placed under the care of the on-call / OPD consultant. This does not limit your choice of consultant and you can change the consultant, if desired, after informing the Medical Director.

In case you would like to see your consultant for an unscheduled visit, you may make a special request to the Nurses’ Station. Sometimes, the resident doctor or the ward sister may ask for a special visit of the consultant, depending on your clinical condition.
