Some of the reasons for removing the doctor badges on are:

  • Badges were indicative rather than informative and hence didn’t really help you with decision making
  • With the launch of Practo Direct, it is not possible for us to track the number of appointments that are booked for doctors as we directly connect you with the doctors via phone and hence the badges will become inaccurate over time
  • The new patient story system that is in works, is much more reliable and comprehensive; and has thus made badges obsolete
