Dr Sumbul is a rude doctor who misbehaves with patients and treat them as subjects. She is more worried about money than patient care and has no manners. I am surprised she is a diplomat of American Board. I feel like reporting her to the American board about her unethical and inhumane behaviour

Very Poor. This guy is after money. We went to Ziauddin hospital to see another doctor for liver, however, due to a slightly higher value of creatinine, they advised us to admit my father for Kidney treatment for which we agreed. Without even looking at the patient he advised my father to go through dialysis for which we resisted and thank God we did. Because later it turned out that my father did not require one. Next day he came and sat with us to explain the issues with my father. At this point, we found his very polite and concerned about the patient. He made a very good sales pitch and asked my father to admit for 4 to 5 days in the hospital. Later, our liver doctor visited and said that there is no emergency and he can see no reason for us to stay. However, because we were admitted by Dr. Ali Moshin we needed his permission to be discharged. By then we could also see that my father Creatinine reading coming back almost to the normal with his routine drugs. So when we asked him for discharge he asked us to stay more week. Imagine how hard it could be for a family to stay in the hospital. Specially for myself, as I travelled all the way from Dubai to help my father during hospitalisation. Cutting long story short, when he discharged us it has already cost us Rs500,000. When we consulted another kidney specialist, the doctor was surprised that we spend 15 days in hospital without any serious kidney situation. Ali Moshin also prescribed my father around 15 medicines, 90% of those medicines were of vitamins and energy. Some of them were also not available in Pakistan so I had to send my father medicine from Dubai. The monthly cost of these medicines was easily around Rs50,000. When the other doctors saw the medicine list, they were surprised that only one of them was directly related to the disease. This is just the shorter version of our story. The purpose is to warn other innocent patients who can be fooled by this person and ended up paying hefty money without any benefit. Please feel free to contact me if you need more details about this person. I am based in Dubai. My contact number is 00971565999147.
