she did life saving surgery I had ectopic pregnancy. after few years I delivered baby boy it was normal pregnancy and normal delivery. 100% I recommend her.
Inspite of long wait time, experience was good...
There was some junior doctor who met us on behalf of doctor Madhu. Nobody told us that she was not available .Only after enquiring the name she told me that doctor is not available.While billing also I was not informed about the unavailability of the doctor.Also,I was visiting her for a severe treatment on a cyst and everything was taken so lightly.
Everything went smoothly until the day came of my wife's due date. She was extremely casual when my wife was in terrible pain & scolded my mother in law for wife's behavior simply because my wife was crying in pain for 24 hours & asking for support. She could have been more supportive instead of being so critical. I highly advise people to find a more supportive gynecologist.
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?

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?
A: In general, females are advised to visit their Gynaecologist/Obstetrician at least once a year. 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.
