i am satisfied with treatment of Dr.Mahesh Goenka

Amit Sarkar
Dr.Mahesh Goenka is reputed Gastroenterologist. He is very knowledgeable and provided good treatment. He is very particular in arriving at the proper diagnosis.
My sister had alump in the abdomen. I had rushed to m any doctors, but no one could find out the cause. When I heard about Dr. Goenka and visited him, he was the first person to diagnose that the lump is due to tuberculosis. My sister was prescribed 9 months antituberculat drug. She gained weight and her health status improved. Now she is doing fine.

Negligence of Dr. Mahesh Goenka

Dr. Mahesh Goenka is said to be a decorated Gastroenterologist, but actually the guy is a butcher. He doesn't understand the fact that he is a Gastroenterologist & not an Oncologist.
He refuses to release patients admitted under him & place them under the supervision of an oncologist, when it's a clear case of stomach cancer & in spite of requests from the patient's family.
The guy gets overconfident & at times portrays the fact that he has got attitude problems. He doesn't know how to talk to a cancer patient's fmily members.
His negligence & overconfident led to theearly demise of my uncle, who passed away within 3 weeks of the detection of his cancer, which had spread very rapidly.
It is due to doctors like Dr. Goenka, that the names of esteemed medical Institutions like Apollo is getting tarnished.
I'd urge people to re-think before consulting Dr Goenka....

Dr Mahesh Goenka is a butcher

Dr mahesh goenka is not a doctor, he is a businessman, a butcher. He never bother you or your disease, he simply allow you one minute in his chember, take money from you and kick you out from his room. Not to listen a single word from you.

Good Experiance With Dr MK Goenka

I have god experience with Dr MK Goenka, Few month back Dr Goenka had treated my Uncle and Dr Goenka had done the ERCP on that time. Excellent job he had done. Now my uncle is absolutely fine and he is being doing a normal life.

On the contrary, i had an excellent experience with Dr. Goenka who treated my mother in law with ERCP. She had severe infection in gall bladder which he efficiently controlled by surgery. I used to visit my MIL during her stay in the hospital and was very impressed by his behaviour and skills. Inspite of his busy schedule he used to explain everyday the details of illness. He even gave me a good discount on my bill . I interacted many other patient relatives and found them all - praise for Dr. Goenka. Surprised at the above comments. I think it is from some frustrated , uneducated fellow who doesnt understand ABC of Medical science. We should be proud of Doctors like him instead of bad mouthing them irrationally.

Dr. Mahesh Goenka's ignorance and negligence- Avoid going to him

My mother undergone an ERCP before a laprocsopy. Dr. Mahesh Goenka did the ERCP. I regret to say that he forgot to insert a stent in the bile duct. My mother has been in acute stomach pain and doctors were unable to say the real cause of her pain. Recently they found from the blood test that he bilurubin count has increased and the reason was that a stent was not placed. Ho can a doctor who is supposed to be a specialist in this field forgets what he needs to do or is it that he intentionally forgets to place the stent. So that he can hold the patients, patient comes back again and he can earn some extra money? Yo are cheating yourself by doing such crime.
After reading so many negative reviews about him before my post and now I am suffering because of my mother's pain. My question to the Apollo or the Doctor's board is why are n't we taking away his license to practice as a surgeon or why is n't there any legal actions taken against him. I know he will continue to be negligent and will play with patient's health if no actions are taken against him. Just a thought- Never go for any ERCP to Dr. Mahesh Goenka...

Negligence or Dr Mahesh Goenka

I had severe Jaundice in April, 2003 as Hepatitis A+E as per the viral profile test from Ranboxy Laboratory, Kolkata. I was admitted in Krishnanagar Zilla Hospital then as I was then posted there in Krishnanagar. My Bilirubin level shoot up to 21, and SGPT & SGOT also shoot up to 2500+. I have still the pathology reports with me. There in the Govt. Hospital the then Dr. Bipul Bagchi treated me well though it took near about 45 days to get released form the hospital. There I was treated with Ampicilin 500 inj. twice a day alongwith Vitamin K analog once a day which continued for 15 days. After I get released for several months I was bed rested and suffering with post Hepatic syndromes like Vestibular Neuronitis, Erosive Gastritis, Somatoform Disorder etc. In that midst after 1/2 months of released from Hospital I went to that callas doctor M.G. for I was feeling frequent pain in my right upper abdomen, and loose stool and he detected me as suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome and prescribed medicine like Mebespa, Neogardine Tonic etc. Thereafter from 2/3 days of treatment my symptoms got more complicated and I went under Dr. A. Konar in CMRI where I got admitted and was done with LFT and other tests and treated with Pan 40, Udiliv, Sucralfate etc. and got well and released form there very soon. Now do you know the tonic Neogardine Dr. M. G. prescribed contains 11 to 15% (approx) Alcohol. After severe Hepatitis he gives me a tonic which contains Alcohol. Just imagine.

Negligence of Dr Mahesh Goenka

I'm ahamed how people dont even think twice before trying to malign the names of such doctors who we are so proud of. Dr Goenka, or anyone for that matter doesnt need to explain his efficiency, skills or proffesionalism to people who are uneducated enough to not even understand the very nature of the accusations they are making. Dr Goenka will continue to save lives everyday like he has been doing for years...I just hope the pathetic jobless people making these remarks too find a way to contribute to the society in some way!

Negligence or Dr Mahesh Goenka

My wife had complains of Gall Bladder stone, we consulted Dr. M.K.Goenka. He did ERCP & removed a part of the stone by endoscopy. He then placed a plastic stent on the Gall Bladder duct. 1 month later, we had the Gall bladder operated & removed & also the plastic stent removed. Unfortunately my wife got infected with serious infection in the Gall bladder vacant place & a lot of pus had to be drained out. I am surprised, how such a big Hospital & good surgeon can cause this type of infection.
I appreciate that Dr. Mahesh K Goenka is a good doctor but his behaviour & time given to patients is very very less which leads to a dilema in the patient parties mind & having a growing grudge against him.

Negligence or Dr Mahesh Goenka

This Dr. Mahesh Goenka and another Dr. Purnendu Roy, both from Apollo Gleneagles Hospital on EM Bypass, Kolkata has directly/indirectly caused death to a middlee aged patient who was sufferring from stone in the gall bladder. Patient complained of pain within seven days of operation and once again operated but unfortunately did not survive the operation. And would you believe how much was the bill charged for a Gall Bladder stone re-operation and other procedures of saving her life ?? It was little over 13 lacks ( thirteen lacks indian rupees ) . Isn't this ridiculous ?? The husband of the patient had to practically sell off all the gold, their house and emply a life long saving just to ensure that the dead body of his wife was not held-up due to non payment of full hospital expense. Funny isn't it ? At least I will never take my wife or myself to the Apollo Hospital ever in my life nor will suggest any of my family member.

The detailed investigation is ongoing since the West Bengal govt intervened looking at the seriousness of the case. Also this was featured in detail at the Channel 10 News in Kolkata.
