Metro Male Clinic is the first of its kind in India to offer phone consults to patients both in India and abroad. Dr.Karthik typically does a 10min free phone consult for patients who are attending the clinic at a future date. For patients seeking extensive advice on the phone, a half hour phone consult is done which is charged. The phone consult for the person who is yet to come, prepares him regarding the course in the clinic and the tests involved so that there are no surprises. Also the course in the clinic is smooth with minimal or no time spent waiting. Many patients are unable to travel to the clinic to get expert advice from Dr.Karthik as they are in a different geographical location. For these patients, the half hour phone consult is extremely beneficial.
