Dr Deepthi is a well-qualified obstetrician and gynaecologist capable of handling high-risk pregnancies and gynaecological issues, she has been academically brilliant from her graduation and post-graduation days, she keeps herself updated with latest techniques by attending workshops, conferences. Her dedication towards patient care and health has been appreciated by her patients, she has worked as a chief consultant in various prestigious hospitals across South India. Her area of expertise is high-risk pregnancy and infertility.
The level of service provided by Dr Deepthi and her team is beyond words. The decision to consult her regarding early pregnancy symptoms was made by my wife and I in January 2022. Like most expectant parents, we were clueless and hadn't have that parental instinct then. When multiple fibroids and early bleeding were discovered in her initial scan, panic arose. Despite of our fears, she kept her cool and gave us confidence. With each visit to her clinic, our happiness and sense of confidence grew. She is constantly available and very friendly. Even in the middle of the night, the doctor was on the other end of the phone to allay our fears.
During the fifth month of the pregnancy my wife had to relocate to a rural part of Karnataka since her job demanded it. Dr Deepthi motivated us to take the opportunity and even in the far-off village, her online consultation service gave us the confidence to carry on.
Finally, on October 14, 2022, our baby was born into the hands of Dr. Deepthi at Apollo Cradle and I witnessed it along side of my wife and we felt ineffable joy at the sight of our daughter's first cry.
Thanks doctor for the great service and my family highly recommends Dr Deepthi and her team to all expectant parents.
We found doc Deepti by chance in practo when pregnancy test became positive. When we met her first, she told us all the required information like what stage pregnancy is in, precautions to be taken and foods to eat n avoid to carry it further and avoid miscarriage in first trimester.
From then there is no looking back. We decided to continue with her as we felt the trust and faith in her.
Throughout the pregnancy, she guided us and took right decission at right time, such as making sure to get hemoglobin shots when it was low and keep guiding about weight gain and tips to have normal delivery.
She never prescribed unnecessary medications and nrver forced us about any unnecessary tests if something can be achieved through diet changes.
During my delivery, she gave me confidence to try for vaginal delivery even guided duty doctors through phone constantly to go for less riskier and medicated route since i was induced. I opted for c sec after 15hrs of labour when it dint progress and was in hospital for 7 days due to baby having jaundice, she was constantly in touch with me and duty nurses and doc and visited me everyday.
She was just a call away. Even after delivery when I use to ping her in WhatsApp for some queries she has helped without thinking i am not her client or patient anymore.
Choosing her is the best decission we made.
First care clinic is also handled nicely. Have to mention Nivedita who promptly handles all appointments, we never waited more than 15 min for 9 months. Even the radiologist does the scan with utmost patience, checks thoroughly and answers all our queries during scan.
Overall first care clinic and Dr.Deepti made us feel at home and confidant throughout the pregnancy which i am truly grateful to. I have referred them to my friends and families and i am definitely going for second pregnancy to her.

Dr.Deepthi R K Shasidhar is the one who gave correct suggestion and medication right from the time I decided to get pregnant. She helped me to come over my PCOD and have successful pregnancy for both my kids. She will even educate us with life-cycle. In my second pregnancy , 3/4th of my pregnancy I have consulted her remote as I was not in town. She monitored my high pressure during 36 weeks and made me overcome it to have normal delivery.
I would like to begin with expressing our gratitude towards Dr. Deepthi for all the care, guidance and help during my journey of pregnancy.
As this was our first baby, we were very cautious and were looking for doctor whom we can trust completely through this phase.
We decided to consult Dr. Deepthi based on online reviews and started with video consulting. We had so many doubts and questions. She answered those so well, provided guidance on how we should approach henceforth. Based on that experience, we decided to consult Dr. Deepthi through this entire journey, though her clinic was very far from our home.
Dr. Deepthi is very kind, approachable and listens to our problems carefully. Being first pregnancy, we were bit anxious. However, during every visit she helped us understand that everything is normal and there is nothing to worry.
We never had to wait at the clinic, doctor was always available at the time of apppoitment. She also gave her personal number and provided guidance on phone whenever we required. She never prescribed unnecessary medicines, tests or scans. She advised to focus on diet and exercises.
Her clinic, First Care Clinic also is very well maintained, very clean, ventilated and we always felt at home, thanks to courteous staff, special mention of Nivedita. She helped us with appointments and any support required during visit. During COVID they took all the necessary precautions, so we were never worried about health safety.
Luckily for us, Dr. Deepthi started pregnancy scan facility in the clinic and it was truly great experience, we did all our scans post that in First Care Clinic itself. Doctor explained the scan results in details.
Dr. Deepthi always emphasized on importance of natural delivery. Her assesment of the expected delivery time was so accurate.
After getting admitted in the hospital, she regularly visited to check my condition. There as well, she didn't go for unnecessary medication and kept giving confidence for normal delivery.
Finally, we were blessed with healthy baby girl through natural delivery. Heartiest thanks to Dr. Deepthi for all her special efforts.
To find a doctor who cares for you, whom you can trust and for whom your health is paramount is very difficult these days. Dr. Deepthi is one such doctor, so highly recommend her for this special phase in our lives.
For last 9 months or so our life revolved around consultations with Dr. Deepthi, we always looked forward to next visit to the clinic. And I'm sure, we will continue to visit Dr. Deepthi in future for medical guidance and otherwise too.
Thank you very much Dr. Deepthi...!
The doctor was amazing. My 3rd visit here. She’s extremely friendly, amenable, and good at what she does. The radiologist here is really knowledgeable as well. Would definitely go back.
Visited for Pregnancy and Delivery
We consulted Dr.Deepthi for Pregnancy checkup and Delivery.She has been caring and supportive from initial days of our pregnancy journey. She responds our queries even in later night during last month.We really thankfull to Dr.Deepthi in bringing joy to our family.
I had very high PCOD due to which I was not able to conceive. We initially consulted few other doctors as well but they created a panic situation for us. Then we visited to Dr. Deepthi which was altogether different experience. She is very calm and handles every situation in a composed manner. She explains everything in detail. She prescribed few medicines initially and asked us to try naturally. We tried for few months but when I did not conceived, we went for ovulation induction. She gave us option to either try naturally or opt for IUI, in addition to ovulation induction. Good thing about Dr. Deepthi is that she does not imposes anything. She explains all the options in detail and suggests the better option but does not impose anything. We wanted to conceive as soon as possible, so we went for IUI, although doctor gave us option to try naturally with ovulation induction. With ovulation induction and IUI we conceived on very first month. As it was our first pregnancy we had hundreds of questions which doctor answered everytime with utmost patience and details. At the end of third month we went through a scary situation when I started bleeding. It was most difficult time of our life. There was risk of losing the pregnancy but the way doctor handled the whole situation we can never forget that. Coming to present I delivered a healthy baby that also through normal delivery, thanks to the doctor. She tries for normal delivery till the very end unless there are complications. Doctor had given her personal number and is very approachable. The most we liked about the doctor is her friendly nature, her calmness in difficult situations and the details in which she explains things.

Very humble & sweet
Down to earth
Explain everything in details.
Just amazed by meeting her
Almost a year back, me and my wife started the process of planning a child to start our family (after 5 years of our marriage ,that is). We consulted couple of doctors only to become the victims of rudeness,unsolicited discussions and especially "the so called very senior doctors" unable to understand or listen to the new age problems related to work, stress.
We are happy to share now ,that , we are proud parents of a little baby girl , who is our angel ,changing our worlds with positivism and being an inspiration for our family.
It would not have been possible without the doctor's utmost dedication ,due diligence and professional attitude in the complete process, given our circumstances and situation. During the initial consultation after visiting other doctors, we got the same / similar answers, but, the way Dr.Deepthi Shashidhar interacted and presented the options to us.It couldn't have been any better ,which helped in building the trust and faith to continue future consultations.
This doctor has the best combination of giving options where it doesn't need emphasis, And, taking leadership where it matters. (Ex: For routine blood tests/reports , we went ahead with a pathology lab near to our house - she was supportive as compared to other doctors, with whom, we have had experiences of their own lab recommendation.
And, When it was a specific/complex test involved, she insisted on a clinic which was non-negotiable and the best. Even, the date of delivery had to be pre-poned due to tachycardia of mother and the baby - both of them are doing fine now due to the timely decision) . The entire pregnancy process was very clear and transperant, we had the right amount of information at all phases.
We are in the process of post pregnancy follow-ups and we share our gratitude in the counselling / support given by the doctor to my wife during the entire pregnancy cycle and are absolutely appreciative on the degree the professionalism in responding to our queries.
