Online Doctor Consultation Now

This is an important service and we are focused on using our resources to serve the patients in need

We are ready to handle requests for free online doctor consultation, from across India. Your requests are screened and segregated by a doctor for triaging (to prioritise patients needing attention) & then the case is referred to a specialist for consult.

Why is this important? (Read Instructions Carefully)

While hospitals are preparing to support the COVID19 patients, we are thinking about non-COVID patients who can't leave their homes during this crisis. Our team of doctors through technology are now connecting with these patients online providing free consultation and much needed medical advice.

Our experience in the past few days:

Patients are welcoming our work with greater appreciation during these testing times. Our doctors are putting in triple the effort to make sure no patient suffers during this period. Please understand that they do this service free of cost & with utmost sincerity & dedication in-spite of attending frontline service during the night & sometimes during the day. 

We request you to use this free consultation service only for necessary medical support and not for general inquiries. Due to high patient traffic, we are prioritizing patients based on the support requested. 

Some examples of requests that we are NOT supporting in this service : (Avoid this) ✕

1. Hi, Cough give medicines.

2. Hi, Can i go out for a walk?

3. Pain what to do?

(These types of requests will be turned down in view of the current situation i.e, increase in no of patients)

Some examples of requests that we are supporting: (Do this ) ✓ 

Name: Abcd

Age/Sex: 25/Male

(This format will reduce our operational burden by 75% & give us more time to attend other patients in need) 

Kindly note: We are getting large number of patients per day

Lockdown clinic's website is created, manned & run by doctors and the patient queue is not automated. Hence, please don't call the phone number. Please wait your turn as we are handling unexpected patient traffic. Your wait time might be hours in some cases.

Answer: Because of the increase in number of patients, the expected wait time is 10 minutes to 3 hours. We anticipate more delay in the future due to increase in patient traffic.

4. Will I get priority appointment if it is an emergency?

Answer: No, Lockdownclinic services cannot be used for emergencies. If the patient is breathless,  has very high temperature, is unconscious, having seizures, chest pain, feeling numb or giddy, has drowned, sustained burns, has cut injuries or fractures, please take him/her to a nearby hospital. We cant help them online.

5. Can I ask doubts regarding corona virus or general health conditions?

Answer: No, while we would love to provide medical advice to all callers, we are having to prioritize care based on the medical support needed.

6. Can I be denied  or cancelled Consultation?

Answer: Yes. If your query is not in proper format (Refer Q no:2), consultation will be denied. If your number is not reachable or we face bad video/audio quality through which doctor's cannot get necessary medical information, the consultation will be cancelled. In such cases it is the doctor's per-view to wait for better connectivity or cancel the call. If the patient or care-givers misbehave with doctors during consultation, it will be cancelled and regulatory actions will be pursued.

Answer: No.

8. Will I be prescribed medicines?

Answer: Yes, for minor ailments if you have mentioned no drug allergies. Change of tablets for chronic diseases will not be done. Scheduled drugs will not be prescribed.

9. Do you also consult on alternative therapies?

Answer: No. Our doctors are registered allopathic practitioners.

10. What are languages used for consultation?

Answer: We have doctors speaking all major languages in India. However, most of them cannot read in these languages. So, kindly send your requests in English.

11. Do you have a separate follow up appointment?

Answer: No. Due to the volume of patients we wont be able to do follow ups. You will need to send us a new request for follow ups. However, we don't guarantee consultation with the same doctor.

12. Can I get online consultation for my child?

Answer: This is a delicate issue. Given the situation, if you are afraid to take your child out for a consult we would prefer a video consult with one of our pediatricians. The care giver or the parent should understand what we provide is only a suggestion in this case and cannot be definitive treatment given the restrictive access to health information of your child like vitals, weight etc. We would suggest direct consultation but in this extra-ordinary situation we cannot abandon you and are here to help.

13. I'm a patient with multiple health problem. Can I opt for online consultation?

Answer: This is often the case with the elderly who has co-existing diseases. If you are one of these patients, you will be given great care by the physician attending you. However, please understand that we cannot replace direct consultation. We cannot provide replacements for prescriptions and if we find any severe limitation of information, we will need to discontinue online consult & refer you to a hospital.

14. How much are the doctors paid?

Answer: Our team does this as a service to the nation at the time of this crisis. We do our service absolutely free.

15. What are the limitations of online consultation?

Answer: There are many limitations such as inadequate history/health information from the patient due to the consulting medium used, language spoken, insufficient clarity of information due to technical problems like poor audio/video quality and unavailability of vital signs information like pulse rate, BP, weight etc. We cannot check your blood pressure & sugar levels online and are reliant on the reports you provide which might lack uniform standardization among other things.

16. What can I do if doctor says he or she cannot help me online?

Answer: You (if you are the patient) or your patient need to check with a local hospital or clinic following all safety precautions during travel like social distancing and hand-wash guidelines. Our government has taken several steps to keep the hospitals and clinics open, hence if required for your medical need, please schedule an in person consultation nearby.

17. How can I be a responsible patient?

Answer: Understand the time that we live in right now and act. On an average, as of 31st March 2020 we get 1-3 patient requests per minute. All these requests are screened by a single responsible & knowledgable doctor who segregates it according to need and doctor availability and refers patients to the appropriate specialist. Kindly note that it is a painstaking, sensitive and a manual process as we work to provide the right care to the patients.

Hence please avoid these types of requests.

1.Hair loss & cosmetic problems

2.Second opinion

3.Asking us to deliver medicines

4.Sexual health related problems

5.Asking doubts regarding COVID19

18. I haven't received a call even after registering my requests?

Answer: We carefully triage patients requests based on the problems sent to us, you haven't received the call for any of the following reasons.

1. Network issues on your mobile. (This is the most common problem we face)

Our doctors try calling you thrice to attend to your problem, if the network cannot be connected, we shelve your request after that. You have to raise a new request from a different number.

2. You haven't answered the call.

3. Your request is not in a proper format or you haven't given your consent for the tele-medicine consult.

19. What is our policy after relaxations of lockdown?

Answer: Most of our doctors have resumed active duty after lockdown 2.0. Government has relaxed movements for treatment in green, orange & red zones.

So we suggest you to observe necessary precautions and get to a hospital nearby for necessary treatment. Minor ailments in containment zones can be consulted online via during lockdown 3.0
