Know an awesome pediatrician?

Practicing in Bangalore? If you know a good pediatrician and can recommend him/her highly, please share the info here in the comments section.

I have been quite disappointed with the ones we have been to. Especially when we went for our son's 2nd year physical check up. He is going to be 2.5 yrs soon. He is due for another physical now and how I miss our earlier pediatrician at Sunnyvale. I have said it before, and I cannot help but say it again. Dr. Kaye would spend as much time as was needed with us. We would go over milestones, height and weight gained, things to watch out for, what activities can we start doing with him to enable his development etc. Anyway, with our boy's 2 year physical, we had none of those. There was no accurate measuring of the height. We didn't go over his milestones. We definitely were not encouraged to ask questions. The pediatrician may be bored with all the intricacies, but this is our boy and no, we don't find anything boring! Anyway, this was the doc that came with a lot of recommendation! So, here I am asking my readers from Bangalore for recommendations. For a physical, I don't mind going anywhere in town to see a good doc. The interaction with the doc during physicals matters to me, a lot! For fevers and other small things, I don't mind going to the guys in the neighborhood.

What I would have liked is for one office to keep tab on the kids. But, I don't know if any doc's office does that. Like for example with Dr. Kaye, once he took us in, everything was taken care of from the day the child was born! Emergencies were attended to. Nurses were on call 24/7. If you had a child, and had good insurance plan, you were taken care of. Period. And at times, when he was not in town, we could meet anybody else from the Camino Medical group. I have not heard of offices here taking you in, as in keeping your child's medical records, tracking his/her progress, maintaining a vaccination record, etc. Do any docs here do that? This pediatrician here didn't even tell us that the next physical was at 2.5 yrs. We know this only because we have an older child!

I have been told how every doc has way too many patients here, be it a pediatrician, cardiologist, oncologist, dentist, anybody. Nobody has too much time for one patient. They have that many patients coming to them every single day! So, I guess individual attention is going to be pretty limited. Please share your pediatric visit experiences in Bangalore and your observations. It will be beneficial to us and some of the readers here too. Thanks in advance.

Chitra, I took my kids to Dr. D.G. Benakappa (his son, Naveen, practises as well) for their general check-ups. He sees kids at home. We found him to be an excellent doctor, not prone to prescribing anti-biotics, very low key and down to earth. We were very comfortable with him. He is aware of the names of the medications in the US so it was that much easier to converse with him.

He practices at Bangalore Hospital and if you are interested, you can get his number from them.

Dr Vasudev Dhananjay in Basavanagudi

dr Srinivas Kashi in South end circle Jayanagar.

Two of them i have heard great reviews.

hey, while I was visting India with my baby, I consulted two doctors (one for general physical checkup and the other for vaccination)dr H R Gopalakrishna from Indira Clinic in Malleshwaram 9th cross and Dr Arvind Shenoy at Perinatal Clinic , Sadashivnagar. I do not have their phone numbers handy...but I'm sure u can call Just Dial (23333333) and get the clinic details...

both doctors do a good job of keeping records..albeit not on computer systems ala CMG

hope that helps,
smitha

Poppins said...

Oh I will be watching this comment space closely. I like the Dr we go to but I miss Camino Medical Group myself :)

nags said...

Not sure about this one, not in this situation myself, but I would try Manipal Hospital on Airport road. I believe they have good doctors (pediatricians) practising there. I have interacted with some of the doctors (not pediatricians) there and the records are maintained in the doctor's office and they are ready to give a copy of the records, if/when requested.

my 2 cents (paise).

Dr Subash in Mahalakshmi Layout, very close to the main bus stand (near the swimming pool) seems to be good. Took my nephew when he was in India.

SpeakingMyMind said...

Weren't you born and brought up in India and then didn't you go to US? I have serious doubts if you have India-amnesia! Let me remind you that this is the way the medical system is in India. Just trust me and take my word; you seem to have forgotten completely.

Ganapathy said...

Oh!! I'm so tired of hearing such stuff as ".. weren't you born in India or didn't you grow up in India".

Dude- just because you were used to going about things in one way, doesn't mean that one should not wish for better.

Agreed, that that's how Indian system *used* to work. Doesn't mean that it should not (or would not) change.

I know of so many good doctors who are not the crappy kinds that you used to get 15 years back - where you had to accept everything they say and should not question. There are quite a few sensible ones who encourage you to ask questions, read up and take charge of your health. Unfortunately - none of them or pediatricians.

Bottomline - grow up Speakingmymind!!

vidya said...

Dr.Nalini shenoy. She visits Malathi Hospital in Jayanagar 9th block and has her own practice in Jayanagar 3rd/4th/5th block (I forget which one) near telephone exchange. She is quite used to NRI kids I guess. In fact when I first mentioned to her that I am relocating, she asked me to bring the yellow immunization record so she can update the vaccines and give the extra ones that are required in India. She knows about the equivalent Us medicines and can prescribe either. My daughter is asthmatic so I end up at the doctor's office a lot. She is quite strict with you (a la your mom) and doesn't shy away from chiding you if you mess up. At the same time she takes the time to explain what is happening and why she's doing what she's doing. She is quite popular so the wait line seems more like an assembly line (the next kid gets undressed, weight checked etc by the nurse while you are still talking to her) but the doctor herself doesn't hurry you and is patient in answering questions. Her treatment is extremely effective as well and is not overdosed with antibiotics or otherwise

Chitra said...

Sujatha, Smitha1, Smitha2, Nags, Nalini, Vidya, thanks for all your inputs. I will probably get the contacts of all the suggested docs and put it up in a post. It may help the others. :)

Poppins, I hope one of these docs will work out for you. :)

SpeakingMyMind, welcome to my blog. Hey, thanks for the free 'diagnosis'!

Ganapathy, welcome back. Haven't seen you in a while around here.

keep up the good work, its very helpful to folks like me who will (hopefully) turn up in bangalore soon :)

Swati said...

Dr Arvind Shenoy is most famous ped in Bangalore, has a clinic in Indra nagar and sits in Manipal too.But he is very very busy ..so I dont wish to try him.

We visit Dr Bhaskar Shenoy , visiting consultant in manipal hospital. He has a clinic in Basavnagar. Issue is he comes to manipal , only twice a week and on working days and Basavnagar is tooo far for me..so there is a problem in case of an emergency.

See if this helps you

Navin Viegas said...

Dropped in (blog) here couple of days back but did not have much to comment as me too was googling out for a good pediatrician for my 14 days young non-NRI baby girl.

My search seems to have ended with Dr. Sachin who visits GreenView Hospital (http://www.gvhconline.com/contactus.html) in HSR layout. (Wish they used my service for their website development) He has his own clinic somewhere near Forum Mall.

I did find some 'good renowned pediatricians' earlier, but then they (or their staff) are not easily available during emergencies off-visiting hours.

Anonymous said...

Hi

Try Dr. Rajeev. He practices at Indiranagar and also at St.Philomena's. We went through exactly the same problem with our son till we found Dr. Rajeev. With him, I find that he spends about half an hour with us for a regular check up, more of there is a health issue. Very patient and warm. The only problem is that you can see him in his clinic only in the evenings and that too on prior appointments. Otherwise, I strongly recommend Dr.Rajeev. Dr.Sachin is also very good.

Anil said...

This is what is meant by brain drain -all the best doctors leave India. Not blaming them- the salaries in India vis a vis other jobs are very low, while the cost of medical education is very high compared to other colleges.
The govt. must:
1)Ban doctors from leaving for at least five years after graduation. If the really want to leave, they must refudn the cost of medical education
2)Pay doctors a living wage at least i govt hospitals. The cost of this is far less than the revenue loss of due to tax sops to businessmen

Hi...

We too returned from the bay area a couple of years ago, and had a tough time getting a good pedia.., i know ur frustration.
Our Pediatrician is Dr. Anuradha H.S, she visits a number of places in Jayanagar/Banashankari area. (Garden City Hospital 26646202). She is so sweet, our kids hug her everytime they meet her. ihope this helps, Gowri

thats India for you said...

Chitra, I think you have forgotten the days of your childhood in India. Certain things in India haven't changed much at all, in all these years. You and me might be returned NRIs and expect the level of facilities and care as we've seen abroad, but trust me, in India, one goes to see a doc only when sick. The kind of stuff you are talking about simply does not exist. Period.
I think, it might come up somewhere in the far future, if enough Indian doctors return to India and choose to practice like they did in the US or elsewhere.
At this point in time, your best bet is going online and googling the stuff you want to know about your kid's growth.

First, let me congratulate you for the excellent blog, it is really commendable that you can take the time to share your experiences with us.

I think a very simple solution to the medical record problem in India would be to scan all your medical records in an electronic format (such as PDF) and then take notes in India and add to the records every time you see something significant. You can always get copies of medical tests etc, and scan them in. When you go for the annual physical, you can just carry a laptop or a smaller device that lets you read the pdf. The doctor can look at any records he/she needs to. And, you can add to it at your convenience.

Frankly, the medical record keeping system in the US bothers me a lot, with all their privacy laws, sometimes, I have a hard time finding out my own test results, only the doctor gets them directly!

Good Luck, I hope you find a good pediatrician soon!

Chitra said...

Thats India for you, welcome to my blog. Unfortunately, I do not think I agree with you. I think there are good doctors just that I have to ask around enough to find them. Like here for example, we have about 15 ped recommendations. If I had not asked, would I have got them? Also, I am sure these recos are going to help a lot of Bangalore parents who are looking up for good peds.

Anon, thanks for your kind words. Welcome to my blog. Thanks for your suggestion. I will incorporate it in a future post where I plan to provide the contact details of all the recommended pediatricians. It is always wonderful to get valuable suggestions from the readers, especially innovative ways of handling situations on hand. Thanks again.

Vijay said...

Dr. Benakappa has been around for a long time and yes as Sujatha mentions takes time and a lot of interest...

Fortunately didn't have the problem with Nikhil once we came back because the FIL is a doctor (a retired old school physician)..

Thats India for you said...

Chitra,
You might have got a ton on reco's here, but I can guarantee you that not one of them will be like the US ones providing you with milestones and keeping track of progress, etc.

All the best to you anyways, and do let us know if you find such a doctor!

Chitra said...

thats inida for you, I am not sure if you read the comments, but some of the parents here mentioned how their docs spend time with them at appointments and are good with 'physicals'. Some of these parents have returned from the US too.

I can see where you are coming from, but I believe in doing what it takes. And if at the end, I get a good doc that I like and if he doesn't keep records, then I will do what the last 'Anon' suggested - to maintain soft copies of the records myself.

PS: Thanks for coming back and responding. :)

Chitra said...

Namvor, thanks! :)

Swati, thanks for the suggestion.

Navin Viegas, thanks!

Anon, Dr. Rajeev sounds really good. Thanks for the suggestion.

Gowri, thanks! Your ped sounds great.

Vijay, thanks! Dr. Benakappa sounds really good.


Thanks again people for taking the time to jot the names of your preferred peds. Much appreciated.

we go to dr arvind shenoi - he has a clinic in indiranagar and one in vyalikaval. i have a 4 year old and a 2 year old. and have been going to him throughout.

he is supposed to be one of the best paed's in blore. and i think he is excellent.

here are the pros and cons:
1. yes, he is very very busy and it is extremely difficult to get an appointment (we dont have that problem coz we have been regulars for the past 4 years)
2. he is nice and friendly - but may not encourage a lot of questions - of course he will answer whatever you have to ask.

the way to overcome point no 1 is that whenever there is an emergency we can go to the paeadiatric emergency at manipal. there are very friendly and nice docs and nurses there, 24 hours, and i just have to say arvind shenoi's patient - they will call him up and check with him what to do etc.

his office does maintain records on the computer, and they do fill a chart for us especially about the next vaccines due etc., but they will not proactively call / send reminders or any such thing.

i go to him because while all the other things are 'nice to have', he has the one thing that i REALLY 'need to have' in a paediatrician - if he makes a diagnosis i can trust it one thousand per cent. from that point of view he is the best doctor ever.

he also never medicates unless absolutely necessary and that suits me too.

hope this helps.

by the way the other popular ones in indiranagar / koramangala are jagdish chinnappa and karthik nagesh.

d, welcome to my blog and thanks for the detailed comment. Much appreciated. Thank you!

Poppins said...

Looks like Dr. Arvind Shenoy is highly recommended..! Regarding Dr. Nalini Shenoy, I did not have a great experience with her "aseembly line" policy. Once my daughter "almost" got a vaccination meant for another person's kid (Ouch) She is efficient and good at diagnosis, but you want more than that from your paed.

Just thought I'd add my two bits

Anna said...

Hi Chitra-

Dr. Srinivas Kasi in Bangalore South is the No.1 Doctor. I Highly recommended Doctor. Many instances I visited him for my daughter and I was very happy. The + point is never gives antibiotics until and unless the medicines do not work and the dosage is minimal.

I am yet to hear back from you Maharishi ashrams programmes for tiny tots :) Never Mind I can wait as summer comes again next year

Hi Chitra, I am a young parent of 20 days old kid and was hunting for a good ped. in and around indira nagar area of bangalore. That is when I bumped into your Blog and found alot of good info here. Will it be possible for you to share the doctor you finally visited. Right now i am consulting Dr. karthik Nagesh and am pretty satisfied. But the only concern is most of the days he is not available in the evenings. So was planning to change the doctor. Do you have any recomendations? Also did you make any document or something to track the vaccination/ examinations of the kids? if yes can you please share that as well?

Congarts Chitra! Excellent Blog....
You shoudl once organize a meet - so a whole lot of your blog loyalists can meet up once...will be nice to put some faces behind the names...
Talkign abotu doctors....I used to visit Sanjay Rao in Indira Nagar - wouldnt recommend him - shifted to Aravind Shenoy a year back - HE IS EXCELLENT!!! Yeh - there is a wait - but he is worth the wait - he is very good with kids and patiently waits till you are done with all your questions. Even in the US, there was always a wait for the good peds.....so i dont find it annoying....so anyone around the airport rd/indira ngr area...i highly recommend Dr.Aravind Shenoy...

Thanks a lot folks for this exellent blog.

Can someone post or email me contact details for Dr. Aravind Shenoy & Dr. Rajeev in Indiranagar area..

I have recently moved to HRBR, kalyan nagar from Jayanagar.. Looks like there
are not good doctors over there.. Here is my experience:-

Dr Chitra in Aruna clinic(who left the clinic in the middle of talking to us as fan in the clinic did not work). So after
waiting for here about an hour, i took my kid to Mothers and child care center(Dr Charles). There are so many people there who are waiting for his consultation. But my experience with him is not really satisfactory. For my kids cold(for almost an month), he is recommending us to not give him apple/orange for the cure :-). Anybody good around this area..

Anonymous said...

Guess we are all pretty naive heree. You are supposed to be American returned and looks like you guys think that healthcare in the US is WOW...let me first start with dispelling the misconception about antibiotics..almost all of you think that prescribing antibiotics is demonic and it seems to be the only (rather sad for a educated crowd) yardstick to measure how good or bad the doctor is..for once have you wondered why prescribing antibiotics in India/Asia is prevalent and may be a good thing even?

See, in Asia/India we live in a dusty and rather unhygenic surroundings, so when a child is sick with say the common flu, and let's assume it is because of a virus infection and not a bacerial one, what the antibioitcs does is that it helps prevent secondary bacterial infection and thus protects your child who already has a weakned immune system from contracting a bacterial infection..

next, you ABCDs, or shall i Say confused desi's who can't let go of the past, (looks like most of your hubbies got fired from their jobs or got sutck with no promotions and you wifes have nothing much to do since you have no skill as such, ok i will stop pouring scorn and get to the point) judge a doctor based on how much he 'talks' to you rather than how good he is with his diagnosis.

so, keep blogging, i would suggest watch out for your 401ks there, they are worth nothing now and your hubbies jobs here coz they may be gone too and then you will go back to your villages and crib what a lousy medical care system your village has and how great this doctor in bangalore was...

Anurdha Srinivasan.....
I am a resident of the United Kingdom now,and Well, having read all of your views about good paediatricians, I thought my experience would be of help to you.I am born and brought up in Bangalore, and I am from the Malleshwaram area. Here, I must recommend Dr.Mahesh Rao, from the 'Lakshmi Maternity Home, Margosa Road, Malleshwaram', to you all. He is the best in Bangalore, and I can confidently say so as we have been consulting him for the past two and a half years. He is a MD,and Foreign returned(USA), and is familiar with the medicines from the USA and the UK. A very brilliant, knowledgeable Doctor, he is down-to-earth and caters to people from all economic backgrounds. My daughter has been in his care for a long time since she was born, and, I can just say, that he has been a God-send to us. Exceptionally sharp, mercurial, thoroughly confident, he prescribes the best medicines that suit the child. A totally busy Doctor, but always approachable for any emergency that may have developed, he consults at his clinic in the mornings between 10 and 1.30p.m. and 6.30 and 8p.m. in the evenings. It is indeed very rare to find honest, dedicated, superb Doctors of his calibre.It is a great pleasure to recommend him as the ideal paediatrician for all those of you who are on the look-out for the best in Bangalore. This time, while we were on a visit to India, my daughter had dveloped diarrhoea, flu, and what not!and, his medicines worked like magic, and she still kept up her weight,with God's blessings.In fact, both my kids, are very fond of him, and my son, I must say, thinks that Dr. Mahesh Rao, the best paediarician must be cloned, so we could conlsult him here in the UK, any time.Indeed, we also feel the same way.

KP said...

I am not sure how to rank him, because primarily graduated out of PGI chandigarh one would except him to be good. We were carried away by his education background but our experience turned out to be really bad.

I have not heard him say "Your child is fine" when ever we had gone with our child.. even for the simple cold he would say "State of your child seem to be worrisome" and would prescribe starting from x-ray to MRI. Primary he exploits the worrisome state of the parents to make money. Infact his diagnosis in several cases has turned to be bad for our child. As famous for making money through referral and laboratory services he stands a testimony to his work at Manipal. For instance, children having blood in stool is not being unusual, he kept referring to other doctors and I am really surprised that a pediatrician of his caliber cannot even guess a list of thing that can lead to bloody stools. Infact he told it was due to some allergy but finally it turned out it was a simple infection which we got to diagnose through a another pead. In my opinion I strong discourage people going to him.

I too have a very experience with Dr Karthik Nagesh. He is very short tempered. He gets irritated when we ask him lot of questions. We switched to another doctor immediately after the first consultation.

Anonymous said...

Me too had a very very bad experience with Dr.Karthik Nagesh.Long short put short.My new-born was admitted to the NICU for no particular reason.Everybody knows that the first feed that a new-born should get is the mother's milk but my baby's first feed was ANTIBIOTICS. And we had to fight to get permission to feed him and also to shift him to the the ward.He wanted to prolong his stay and put him on Formula feed.Once shifted the Doc was too busy with his so called "emergency" cases.If it really was a NICU case,then i believe he should have had the time to visit my baby in the ward too{i dont know if he ever visited him in the NICU coz after we were discharged ,he was not available in the NICU for the follow-up at the appointment time}.
My advice to one 'n' all :NEVER EVER GO TO HIM.

Personally i find that Dr Karthik Nagesh is one of the best paediatricians in Bangalore. My baby was born 8 weeks premature and developed jaundice. Dr Karthik spent a lot of time with her and she was discharged within a week. My daughter is alive now because of his efforts. He is the BEST DIAGNOSTICIAN in Bangalore.

I have a 11 yr old son with fever and leg pain. I went to several doctors and all recommended operation. Dr. Karthik told it was only mild fever and arthritis and gave medicine. He is now fine.

I think that Dr.Karthik Nagesh is one of the best doctors in Bangalore!
He has done a LOT for all three kids of mine!
My second child would not be alive if it weren't for him.
We had gone to so many other doctors in indiranagar itself who could not find a suitable diagnosis for him but Dr.Karthik treated him so well and he was absolutely fine in a week's time!
I advice everyone to go to him. I think he's one of the best paediatricians!

Exceptionally great experience dealing with Dr Karthik. Care beyond expectation was being done for my little one since his birth. Though am from Chandigarh, must second that my decesion to get my baby delivered at bangalore was the Right decesion. From the baby's birth till he was discharged from NICU it was a very well taken care off.

Happy mom.
I take my kid to Dr Basavana Gowda at Apollo clinic Electronic city bangalore and i am always confident that he brings back the smile on my kids face. Children love going to him. He provides you lot of comfort and support to cope up with critical illness of child apart from the right diagnosis and medicines.

Hi,

I also have been visiting Dr Basavana gowda at apollo electronic city and i am very happy with his diagnosis, treatment and approach. Now we feel he is a as family friend. My daughter loves her doctor.

Hi bloggers, Paediatricians are not salesmen/saleswomen to rate them as the best/worst depending on the time they spend with you/number of medicines they prescribe.Just be happy you people have an access to paediatricans at any point of the time in a day, which millions of Indian children do not have. Stop blogging about healthcare in India.

Devi Maniaiyer said...

Hi! I just happened to see this blog as I was surfing...I am with Dr. Karthik Nagesh. My daughter was born in the 27th week and was in the NICU for quite a bit. I'd say Dr.Nagesh is really good. He works to get the illness down at the earliest and at times, that does involve stronger medication. We've had great support from him despite the fact that India does have challenges in certain areas like genetic work ups etc. I've found that while he is perhaps more expensive and is certainly busier than some of the others, we've had our child cured, which I guess is what finally matters.

Hi Dr. Shenoy is now in Cloudnine. Both my boys go to him. He is definitely woth the wait. We have been regulars for 7 years with my elder son having many health complications. He is patient, answers all questions and does not medicate unnecessarily. Meeting him has become easier after moving to Cloud nine.
