2 clinics for General Consultation
Ya am satisfied with doctor visit for my pregnancy checkup and also explained everything in a neat way.
If you dont think about money and want get things to be done quickly go here.. first day itself they did all sorts of tests for me and my husband, results came out the same day..it costs around 18k.. they suggested to go for laproscopy.. next week surgery scheduled.
Had a fairly normal pregnancy and was consulting with another doctor in a clinic at Alwarpet. Switched to Dr.Geetha from week 32 and went in for a scan. Baby had a cord around the neck (single loop). I was asked to go for c section immediately by Dr Geetha without proper explanation. I was worried that it was just 32 weeks but the doctor insisted that I get a couple of Betnesol shots and was admitted at the hospital for continuous CTG monitoring. Neither the side effects of the injection nor any other options apart from C-section were provided. The expert advice provided was that this was a life threatening situation and we had to go ahead with the surgery without further delay.
I am thankful for the treatment that I received as an inpatient in the hospital. however the sutures of my cervical cerclage was left behind and never removed. it was found after 2 years when I went for a check up in USA. also I was told it was infected. When I had come for my postpartum check up I had specifically asked whether this was removed and I was told that it was which was not true. **** ** **** ******** **** *** ****** ** ******** ******** *** *** ******* ** ***********
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.
Q: What are the common procedures performed by a Gynaecologist/Obstetrician?
A: Gynaecologist: 1. Dilation and Curettage (D&C) – The uterine lining is removed either by suction or with a curette. 2. Hysteroscopy– A hysteroscopy treats minor conditions inside the uterus in a non-invasive manner. Obstetrician: 1. Normal delivery - An Obstetrician helps in childbirth. 2. C-section – In case of any complications, the Obstetrician operates on the patient to ensure safe childbirth.
Q: Does a Gynaecologist/Obstetrician treat infertility in women?
A: Yes, a Gynaecologist/Obstetrician is trained to deal with infertility and related health issues in women. Consulting a Gynaecologist can be a great way to understand and evaluate the reason for infertility and explore the various avenues of treatment available. In case of infertility in women, you should consult with your Gynaecologist/Obstetrician, who will then refer to a specialist if required.
Q: How often should females visit a Gynaecologist/Obstetrician?

Annual exams include a number of preventive health screening procedures that can help you keep a tab on your reproductive health and are also advantageous in identifying serious health problems in initial stages. Pregnant women should consult their Gynaecologist/Obstetrician at least three times during pregnancy.
