She is truly a godsend for us, and I am confident that I am in safe hands.
Dr. Aruna is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever come across. She is very strict with her profession and humble with patients. You can get a sense of her knowledge in just one visit. She speaks very politely and we can ask our doubts without hesitation. She made us understand my medical condition & what precautions need to be taken. Under her supervision, we had a successful delivery of the baby although there were medical complications with unexpected labour. Post delivery, she made sure that I am keeping well and if my overall health is all good. I cannot thank her enough & I will be forever grateful. Highly recommend her. You are in safe hands if with her. Last but not the least, Nine Months - The journey of a lifetime by Dr. Aruna is so insightful & a must read for all adults. 😊
She is a great Doctor. Very calm and explains well. Very friendly. Treats well. Doctors prescription helped me. Improvements are there. I really appreciate her and thank her.
Dr Aruna is very friendly and had the right approach to the problem. Will definitely recommend her...
Dr. Aruna is a highly qualified, evidence-driven and an experienced doctor. She would always welcome us with a smile in every visit which is very comforting to start with. Post observation, she mentions her current assessment and then explains to us the reason behind a certain test or a scan or a treatment that she may recommend on the need basis. She guided me very well at each stage of pregnancy and was very caring throughout the journey.
Further, very importantly, she gives enough space for us to clarify any of our queries. Even if we, sometimes, ask more doubts or queries, she would address each of them without any iota of showing frustration, hurriedness, or impatience - this is becoming a rare quality for the doctors, especially among the gynaecologists/obstetricians these days and we really appreciate the doctor for that. Post consultation, we always felt that we are well-informed, and that clarity has given us a lot of confidence and comfort. We really appreciate the doctor for this. For us, this was one of the key factors of choosing a gynaecologist apart from the doctor’s expertise.
During our regular visits, she got a slight doubt on an aspect during my 33rd week of pregnancy and she proactively took steps in suggesting us to get a scan done, the findings of which corroborated her doubt with a small issue. So, she closely monitored me regularly and guided us accordingly until delivery. I delivered a healthy baby boy via normal delivery mode (using forceps instrument). The delivery process had become slightly complicated due to baby’s facing/position and that is when we are glad to have the situation dealt by an expert and experienced doctor who was ably supported by her team of junior doctor and nurses. Labor pains are very painful and stressful for anyone and an extended labor duration in my case was even more painful and stressful - but I got excellent support and motivation from the doctor and her team - they were very caring. Immediately after the delivery as well, I was stressed and very tired (partly also due to slightly more blood loss during the delivery) - Doctor addressed this situation deftly.
In conclusion, we are glad that, in Dr. Aruna, we found best of both worlds - an expert who is very caring - which enabled us to feel confident, comfortable and that we are in safe hands. We are grateful to the doctor and would like to express our gratitude towards her for taking care of each stage of my pregnancy and a complicated delivery process so well. We are very happy for welcoming a baby boy to our family!
