Clinical Facilities

When you arrive

Our endocrinology OPD is at Room 111, Ist floor of the out patient building. Please ensure that you are present at least half an hour prior to your appointment time. On arriving at the OPD, please register with the MRO who will confirm your appointment and book you into the clinic.


Before consultation please confirm to bring with you

  • All previous medical records and documents
  • Your investigations and scans done previously
  • List of all the drugs that you are taking
  • This will help us arrive at a diagnosis earlier and may avoid the repetition of some expensive tests.

You will be called into the consultation room by the doctor. At the time of consultation please discuss in detail with your doctor the problems you have. If you do not know any other language besides your native language, try to get a translator along with you as this would help us in clearly understanding the medical problem. At your first visit the doctor might give you some investigations, dietary consultation or physiotherapy (appointments for which can be sought at outpatient counters on payment) and ask you to come for a review at a later date. Your treatment plan will be decided only based upon these reports.

Subsequent Visits

At revisits the physician will explain to you to the problem and the management options. If need arises you may need an inpatient admission which the doctor will advice you on.
