My experience at Dr. Batra’s-1

A cousin forwarded me the number. I had to sms and my appointment would be arranged. I sms’d and was flooded by phone calls, apparently from a call center.  I was given the date and time.  The place was neat and tidy and had a number of people (patients) waiting. The payment counter and medicines counter are on either side of the waiting hall and in the middle were two receptionists.  The receptionist asked me to fill up a form that asked for contact address, phone number, profession and such other details.  I was on time but had to wait for two and half hours for my turn to come!

The doctor spoke well and cared to explain the problem with my hair, scalp rather.  The interesting part was when he focused a pointed torch and showed me the problem on the monitor.  There was some white  matter (fungus?!) surrounding the hair at its root ( i.e. the visible end of the hair on the scalp).  I was asked to collect the medicine from the counter. Before that i was to meet another doctor in a nearby room. This doctor asked me a number of questions trying to figure out my nature (constitution).  I was even asked if i had ever been angry! I felt compelled to ask her if she was psychologist. I knew that homoe-medicine depends a lot on the persons nature but i thought she had gone overboard.   This went on for ~15-20 min-she typed, in their software app.(?)  my answers to all her questions! I was then asked to go for laser treatment.  This facility was in an adjacent room. A person who appeared to be an operator (not a doctor) did the laser treatment.  He first applied some liquid that wet my hair. Then he moved a pointed torch kind of a thing over my scalp. This lasted about 5 minutes. Apparently, the treatment is supposed to increase the blood circulation to the scalp!

That was the end of the consultation and treatment. I collected the medicines, paid for a treatment for 6 months. I was also asked not to use strong shampoos.  Instead, they asked me to buy dr. batra’s shampoo and conditioner. Johnson’s baby shampoo would also be ok. I was asked to shampoo on alternate days.

After about 3 weeks or so i was asked to visit again.  I did not book an appointment. I walked into the clinic and asked how much time it would take.   Just ahead of me an aged patient was arguing about the doctors not being the same. Probably he was fed up of  explaining his problem and answering the same questions over and over.   I got to see the doctor in less than an hour. But the doctor was  not the one i had met the first time! However, to my relief he was already going through, i suppose, the notes left by the previous doctors in their software.  He had a look at my hair lead his fingers through it and said the fungus was still there. Hair was weak and improvement had yet to happen.  He recommended some more medicine (i hadn’t finished the first set yet) and a liquid. The person at the medicine counter explained that i was to mix the liquid with dr. batra’s hair oil and apply it (gently) to the scalp once a week. The liquid and oil are to be mixed in a 1:3 ratio.

Its now more than 4 weeks. I will wait and see if there is improvement. The treatment is supposed to stop hair fall. It wont stimulate new hair growth; i.e. dead follicles wont sprout again 😦

Will update this post until the end of 6 months.

  4. dinanath Says:

    Thanks for leaving a message. As i mentioned in my recent and last post on dr. batra’s i am dissapointed with this treatment. I do not have any remedy and i wonder if there is any ‘real’ treatment for hair loss.

  5. Vicky Says:

    avoid dr. batra’s hair fall treatment even if they give u medicines free of cost…unless of course if you wish to go more bald…good luck…

    Hey
    I am Mahesh. Age 24 yrs. Living in Pune (Maharashtra)
    From last 4 years I am suffering from huge hair loss.
    I have tried 4 doctors which are specialist in this field, but none of them give me any result. I am very disappointed from their treatment.
    I have tried Ayurveda, homeopathy, allopathy.
    can you suggest me any doctor on hair fall? from ur experience

    • dinanath Says:

      Dear Mahesh,
      Thanks for commenting on my blog. Regarding your question…I am sorry there seems to be no cure. They say that hair transplant, wherein they take hair from back of the head-near neck region and implant it, is the only option.
      My last hope was on homeopathy. Though, I am sure there must be some local (traditional) treatment. It is just not known yet.

  12. Anuj Kumar Says:

    My son is suffering from skin disease, name i don’t know. i have been undergoing treatment from 2 years. I came to know about Dr Batra’s only through internet. I called toll free no and the customer care executive gave me the date on Monday. even the sms came one day before. i live in Bokaro and the clinic is in Ranchi about 2 and half hour distance from my home. I went to the clinic with my family, spent about 500 rupees. Just beliving on customer care and sms I went on Monday but I when there I found the clinic was closed. Monday is their weekly holiday. My total effort went in vain. It was nothing there. I called customer care but she told me sorry, sorry,. tell me this the treatment. If Monday was closed then why it gave me massage to visit there. I am too angry with Dr. Batrs’s clinic.

    i’m thinking to take treatment at batras vizag
    i hope people who have already gone treatment there could help me plzzzzz
    how long it has been ___ months … ?
    do u see any improvement from previous condition?
    if no improvement at least has your hair loss problem stopped(i mean if u didnt get new hair is your old hair good in condition)
    has it prevented the further hair fall..?
    they told me around 13,200 rs for 1 year and told to come on weekends for discount. …

    The treatment from Dr.Batra is of no use. You will waste money and time. I wasted around 40000/- but got no relief in asthma and sneezing

  18. naresh negi Says:

    They just play prank in phone call that we charge 350rs, it just to pull customer in shop then they give false hope to customer and take huge money. like 12000, 8000 etc etc

  19. sreekant Says:

    Dr. Batra opened his clinic only to cheat people. He shows you before and after photos and cheat you. I have lost my 9000 rupees in treatment of hair fall. But nothing happens, my hair fall not controlled. On the contrary, I lost more hair. They told me that 50-100 hair fall daily is a natural phenomenon. Then why the f**k u opened the clinic?? I suggest u not to go to Batra and lose your money. Its better to be bald than to go there.
