Andheri East

Dr Atish Laddad is an excellent paediatrician and his wife too available during morning hours is very approachable and patiently replies to all the queries. The clinic is full most of times which means there is too much demand, appointments have to be taken, walk ins too. are accommodated on time. I like their timely detection of an illness. They do a thorough check up with respect to weight and height and recommend diet if needed. I would recommend this doctor.

Even I've had a good experience with Dr.Atish Laddad but as you have mentioned something about his wife, here is my fresh experience. Dr. Chaitali Laddad is a famous paediatrician in Mumbai, operating from Marol, Andheri area. But She is the worstest ever doctor I've seen, infact a worst human being. You say she patiently replies to queries....I think she doesn't even know the meaning of word patiently....Here is an example...... We took our 2 week old baby girl to her, citing yellowish eyes and skin. She observed the baby and asked us to get a blood test done and check the total bilirubin level, which was observed to be 14. She suggested one week exposure to sunlight and again get a blood test done. After one week's exposure to sunlight, my wife thought there is some change and herself thought of extending the procedure. After all, she is the mother of the baby and any mother would always be afraid and against getting a blood test of a 2 week old baby. So she herself extended this procedure and observed drastic change in the eye colour. After 2 weeks she went back to dr. Chaitali Laddad to get her views and do the further required. Upon knowing that we had ourselves taken decision to expose the baby to sunlight and as we said we have seen some improvement, she got irritated, closed the file and asked the patient to leave. Again note the patient is a 2 week old baby. What kind of doctor is she..? We are not doctors, we might fail to implement a few instructions out of some other emotions. A doctor should explain the pros and cons of not following the instructions. Closing the file, asking the patient to leave without even having a courtesy look at the baby is the worst ever behaviour by a pediatrician. She doesn't deserve to be a doctor. Infact she doesn't even deserve to be a human being. Shame on her. Such doctors should be thrown back to their schools and taught the basic behaviour lessons before coming to such services. I'd never recommend such doctors.
