Our Story: Inspired by Real-Life Experiences

At the heart of Watchdoq lies a narrative inspired by real-life events, woven together by a team of dedicated professionals with diverse backgrounds. Our collective expertise stems from IT professionals, consultants, doctors, and medical professionals, hailing from esteemed institutions such as IIT, Jadavpur University, Ignou, Midpapore, and Calcutta Medical College. Our journey has been shaped by experiences gained at renowned organizations, including Morgan Stanley, Genpact, Technip, Woods, and more.

What Ignited the Watchdoq Initiative: A Few Pivotal Moments

1st Case: A Heartbreaking Wake-Up Call
In 2017, a friend's father experienced a sudden medical emergency while playing ludo with family. A major cerebral attack left him paralyzed, and the family, bewildered, faced exorbitant costs in a renowned hospital. With a leap of faith, we transferred him to a smaller nursing home, witnessing both a reduction in costs and a successful recovery under the care of a respected neurosurgeon.

2nd Case: Overstaying and Overpayment
Another incident involved a friend's father undergoing bypass surgery at a reputed Kolkata hospital. While the surgery was successful, the hospital extended the stay unnecessarily, leading to overpayment and extra charges beyond the mediclaim.

3rd Case: Chaos in Government Hospitals
A visit to one of Kolkata's largest government hospitals exposed us to the overwhelming pressure faced by patients. The lack of proper care, long queues, and inappropriate behavior in a high-pressure environment highlighted the challenges patients endure.

4th Case: The Importance of Second Opinions
A friend's wife faced recurring boils, and despite visits to various doctors, it took a local doctor's simple advice – avoiding surgery and using hot water and antiseptic lotion – to provide effective relief within days.

Observations and Decisions: A Patient-Centric Approach

These incidents, among many others, underscored the challenges patients regularly face – from finding the right doctor within budget constraints to navigating critical medical decisions. Recognizing these obstacles, we envisioned a platform to connect individuals with similar experiences, offering genuine feedback, suggesting doctors, hospitals, and services based on budgets, and facilitating informed decision-making.
