Doctor was caring and friendly she listened to the health problems patiently and gave her suggestions and prescribed medicines.
Doctor was caring & listening to our concerns and the suggestions and medicines are appealing. However, it would be better if there is a provision to contact the doctor over phone or email during the medication period. We are unable to reach the doctor through the landline number provided in the clinic.
I am very happy to meet her for my pregancy follow up..she listen to our prob very carefully. I am very comfortable with her treatment and i strongly recommend her for all pregancy related issues.
Wait time is not satisfied.. our consulting time is 6.45 pm but treatment started @7.45pm then what is the use of this booking system.
Q: Who is a Gynaecologist?
A: Gynaecology is the medical specialization that deals with the female reproductive system. Hence, a Gynaecologist is a doctor who specializes in the health and the problems of the female reproductive system that includes the vagina, ovaries, uterus and breasts. Additionally, gynaecologists are also trained in Obstetrics and hence can deal with pregnancy and child birth too.
Q: Is there a difference between Gynaecologist & Obstetrician?
A: Where a Gynaecologist deals with the health and wellbeing of the female reproductive system, an Obstetrician specializes in pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum care. A Gynaecologist is trained in Obstetrics too. Hence, when a woman is pregnant, she can either consult a Gynaecologist or an Obstetrician, but for issues related to the female reproductive system, she should consult with a Gynaecologist.
