We were so happy when we knew that my wife was Pregnant, we were excited and scared at the same time as it was her first pregnancy.
As a couple we had a huge list of recommendations from friends and relatives about various doctors we could consult.
Our first and foremost requirement at the time was to find a warm and caring doctor that we were comfortable with.
One by one we visited 7 doctors (some with an Attitude, some with a prescription for various scans within 2min of meeting and also from a particular Lab and a Particular Technician, some wouldn’t allow the Husband in the consulting room, some speak only Medical jargons makes it so difficult to follow, some scare you that its going to be a caesarean on the first visit) and finally we met Dr Manjula Deepak.
After the first interaction with Dr Manjula my wife was so happy and so excited and was so confident in saying that she is going to be our doctor, though the Hospital was never on our list (it was on the higher end ₹ compared to other Hospitals), the whole day I just heard from my wife that the doctor was like this, like that, she told this, she said don’t worry, she was not in a hurry, she answered all my queries etc…
When you meet Dr Manjula, she is full of Energy, Positivity, Compassionate, Warm, speaks to you in the most humble and simplified manner, like speaking to a child. What one expects from a doctor apart for their expertise is that feel, that when u meet a doctor that everything is going to be fine, she will be there when you need her, she will comfort you when you are in pain, she will move any obstacles in your way, and all you have to do is rest your faith in her hands.
We have never felt that a scan was prescribed unnecessarily, that a Blood test was prescribed unnecessarily, that a medicine was prescribed unnecessarily. She has always ensured that only the required Treatment was provided.
She was available on the phone whenever you have a query (big or small), though she is almost always the busiest doctor in the Hospital 24x7 (Consult her once and you will know what i mean).
On the Final day we were at the Hospital at 10pm in the LDR, by then Dr Manjula had instructed the fellow doctors about the next steps, she visited us at 11 in the night (prior to this we only met her in the morning) and comforted us and mentioned we had time and that she will be back the next morning at 7am. We were waiting in the room that night, Dr Manjula comes in the room at 4am she happened to be there as another patient of hers delivered, she was there to check and left after sometime, only to return at 6 am to again check on us, this time we were worried, as my wife wasn’t responding to the Treatment, she politely told us to wait till 9 am. And then she returned and still my wife wasn’t responding to the Treatment, they tried inducing pain but it was all but clear that we have to prepare ourselves for a caesarean, we had time only till 1pm for a Normal delivery. So we waited and suddenly at 12 the doctors hurried to the room, called Dr Manjula, it was time, all the doctors encouraged, cajoled, reminded that it was all in my wife’s hands for a Normal delivery. Can still hear Dr Manjula shouting that “I don’t want to do a caesarean, you had come to me months ago asking for a Normal delivery, now you need to push, you are so close, please push”.
It’s a boy, he was delivered normally. It was an ordeal for us for almost 14 hours but all through, Dr Manjula was right there…
She was there every step of the way till the most crucial time, supporting, helping, guiding and by the Grace of God we have Dr Manjula as our Doctor. As a Husband a brother a friend and a fellow human being I would always recommend that you get a doctor as good as Doctor Manjula Deepak……
