With the healthcare system in Patna overwhelmed by the tsunami of Covid-19 cases, Dr. Good Deed is set to launch Covid teleconsultation on the World Telecommunication Day. Amidst the various lock-down restrictions, Dr. Good Deed with its continued efforts fighting the virus comes up with a team of expert doctors from Delhi to serve the people in Patna, capital of Bihar.
Since the launch of the clinic at Boring Canal Road, qualified doctors from America and Delhi have joined hands to provide the best medical facility and consultation among the citizens. Through these online consultations, people at home isolation or symptomatic patients can connect with these doctors through calls and video calls. Dr. Good Deed aims to connect with those who are in need of proper medical guidance.
“Right now, there is panic among people. Everyone is rushing to heavy doses themselves due to fear of visiting hospitals. Misinformation is dangerous. Realizing the emergency situation, we are coming up with this facility of online consultation with experts.”, said Dr. Chandril Chugh, US Trained Neurologist at Dr. Good Deed said,
Along with this, the clinic will cater to patients in areas of Neurology, Gastroenterology, cardiology, urology, orthopedics, pulmonology & Sleep medicine, medical oncology, internal medicine, and endocrinology, among others.
“This is the time when most of the patients need extra care, but at the same time, it is difficult for them to travel a long distance and reach other cities for treatment. GOOD DEED clinic will help them to connect with qualified doctors and get the ease of the treatment without wasting too much time and exposing them to COVID 19 issues which they might connect once they get into a bigger hospital or travel to a different city. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness, added Chugh.
He says “our team came forward to provide best in class medical facility to the people in the city and nearby vicinity. During this tough time, it is very important for everyone to keep them and their families safe and at the same time follow a proper consultation even for smallest of the health issues”.
Commenting on the initiative Dr. Nivedita Pandey, Gastroenterologist & hepatologist, who’s one of the senior members of the team, said “Dr. Good Deed is not a medical or a social work website.
