Hospital reviewed: Apollo Hospital, Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad

A couple of points from this experience – Our Opinion:

  •  At Apollo Hospital, Rs. 80,000+ ($2000) was quoted for a minor operation while at Vivekananda Hospital, it ended up costing just Rs. 15,000
  •  The 2 year child was NOT taken care of. Instead of offering the first aid, the doctor was more concerned about changing for the Operation.

Review/Story from Hyderabad – AS IS


Once I went to the apollo hospital located at jubilee hills,hyderabad when my 2 year old daughter got her hand fractured. It was in the night time at around 9:00 p.m. I was told by the staff to take the child to the emergency wing. when i went there, i was told that an x ray was required urgently and the x ray was done and ready.  A junior doctor tried to treat the child and to my surprise, he did not know how to look at the x ray and he was asking another doctor to help him. finally they gave a pain killer to the child and were waiting for the professional orthopaedician. finally when he arrived, he swaw the child and the x ray and asked me to come aside. he started telling me that there is a need of an operation and it will cost me rs. 80,000/-. I was not having that huge amount with me at that time as i came urgently with a crying child. The doctor started telling me that the amount of 80,000/- will be for one hour operation and if it takes more time in the theatre, i will be charged extra. I asked him to do the first aid by tying a cement bandage for that night and i will decide for the operation and come to the hospital the next day. Then suddenly the doctor turned out like a broker and he was asking me to select the room and tell him whether i wanted a a/c room or a normal room. Then i told him seriously that the baby was not able to bear the pain and told him to put the bandage immediately. Then he started putting the bandage and after completing he told me to to come as soon as possible the next day. I clearly understood that something fishy was going on there and settled the bill and came back home with the child. We spent that night with the baby crying with pain and in the morning i went to vivekananda hospital located at somajiguda, hyderabad and i was told by the doctor there that a minor operation was required and i agreed. Then finally the operation was successful and along with the room charges and i was charged only rs. 15,000/- and the operation was the same as i was suggested in the apollo hospital. If i accepted for the operation that night, then i would have paid nearly rs 1,00,000/-  there whih is equal to the ost of 7 such operations. so, i suggest the people not to go to such hospitals and come into their words. Apollo hospitals is drinking the blood of the poor people literally by using such tricks and creatin a fers in the patients.
