This is a long pending feedback. Dr Poornima justifies the profession she is in and really knows what she is doing. What initially seemed like a high risk pregnancy (I was on bed rest for first 3 months due to bleeding) turned out to be a wonderful experience for me with a normal delivery. The reason I decided to consult her is because of her reputation in normal deliveries.
I wouldn’t say I started feeling comfortable from day 1. On the day of our first appointment she had to attend to an emergency delivery in Koramangala clinic and she had to rush. She couldn’t spend too much time. I started thinking how can a patient develop comfort with her doc with just one meeting a month which lasts for not more than 10 or 15 minutes. But in the subsequent appointments I realized that she does give time to patient to ask questions, clarify any kind of doubts even if they are silly. She sticks to basics - healthy food and exercise and active life, doesn’t prescribe unnecessary tests or medicines. She suggested me to continue with my work life as it was before my pregnancy without scaring me anytime due to my bleeding in early pregnancy. During my appointment in the 8th month she said “Very high chances of normal delivery” and we were really excited and little nervous also.. On the D day, we went to the hospital and I delivered under her supervision after almost 20+ hours of labour, which today is one of the most cherished and memorable experiences of my life.
If you are cooperative and realistic in your expectations you can expect the same from her. For e.g. – She runs around 2 clinics and sometimes she could be delayed due to delayed delivery or some complications and she is a human. You cannot expect her to reach your clinic on your appointment time..
PS – This is a feedback for Dr Poornima and not Apollo Cradle, Jayanagar, where I delivered.
