Ratings and Reviews
If you post a free question no doctor will answer them only some related answers are displayed and once u say you are not satisfied with the answer it’s gone no answers . And after 24 hours u get a mail saying your question is irrelevant or some thing or this thing. So if you go to the paid section after not getting satisfied with the free answers primarily they ask a hefty amount of consultation fees and after with the doctors ask a few questions ( early if you are lucky if not then the wait time goes up to 1 or 2 hours ) then obviously he is not in a situation to give a proper diagnosis without looking at your condition so he says . Meet a specialist or if he is a specialist then he might as well ask you to meet in person to make the correct diagnosis . So you pay a hefty consultation charge then physicaly go to a doctor and pay his consultation fees and ultimately you are diagnosed only when you are personally visiting a doctor . This app is good for hypochondriacs . But honestly this app is not at all useful for health issues it’s good to locate doctors and book appointments but forget about consultation online .

Avoid this app
The app is total useless. When you are already in sick this app makes you further sick.
1. I use iPhone 6 Plus with iOS 11. This is app is very slow to load or refresh any page. Especially when you navigate between to see your appointments, order medicines, online consultation.
2. App crashes at least once in 2 minutes if you are chatting continuously. Crash frequency is more if you try to navigate back forth when you are chatting, access camera to upload photo.
3. There is no mechanism to auto add the medicinal records when you get prescriptions through online appointment.
4. The killer feature is notification. I get chat notifications nearly one hour after the chat is completed. The notifications keeps coming with delay in the range of 25 to 60 minutes. Hats off to the Dev and test team.
5. The medicine prices are way too high compared to the pharmacies in our area. Not sure if this is the case in all areas.
6. If you are consulting with doctor in online, it assigns doctors from anywhere in india. It is not optional to chose from your locality or city if you want. It is very difficult to continue and carry the history when you had to visit the doctor in person in later time.
I felt all these when I use the app for 1.5 hours and while availing one online consultation.
You can try your best and share your experience as well. Good day!

False Blood Test Reports
Never book any services from Practo. I booked a full body test from Practo. The report which they sent was false. I have a 1 year old baby and in my pregnancy i had high Thyroid. After my delivery the thyroid level was normal and i am checking it every 2 months after my delivery. In march when i got full body check up from practo suddenly my Thyroid levels increased. I was panicked and consulted a couple of doctors. They asked me get a re-test done from another lab. After 25 days i got my re-test and my thyroid level was in range. They also claim that it’s possible that within 25 days the thyroid levels change so much. Like suddenly it went so high that i might had to start a 62.5 or 75mcg tablet and then suddenly after 25 days it was in normal range without medicine? What if i had started any medication on the basis of Practo’s reports? I am a breastfeeding mother and it would have affected my baby. They are not even ready to give refund of the test. Pathetic customer service.
