Consulted Dr. Gauri Agarwal (Gynecologist)
Note: This doctor is no longer practicing at
I do not recommend the doctor
Visit to “Seeds of Innocence” run by Dr Gauri Agarwal in Yashoda Hospital, Nehru Nagar, Ghaziabad was a terrible experience. We had already taken 2 cycles of IUI under Dr Sashi Arora with failure. Still we approached Dr Gauri with a positive hope. Being prepared for IVF we both just wanted a good package. On inquiry I was offered of IVF package of 1,40,000 with assurance of more than 60% success in my case. When inquired of LIVE BIRTH RATE & SUCCESS RATES the DOCTOR was not able to quote me anything and twisted saying there are so many cases we handle...each case is different.
When asked for possible options for IVF ..she quoted me packagae of 1,40,000 with 8 monthly EMI options and 33% payment before the entire IVF procedure commence. Nothing was specified what will be included and what will be excluded. (NO WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION JUST VERBAL) Also handed with list of tests for both of us...which they quoted to be around 3000 but it accounted for 8000....(not part of package), FSH, LH test which costed me around 2100 was included inthe package that too as if they have done a BIG RELAXATION FOR ME. Again when asked for the option of IVF package without medication (which as such just included injections, all oral medicine cost we had to bear...that was not part of the package) they firstly denied to do so and then tried convincing us that all our medicines are tested...and few of the imported injections we use (I MYSELF RETURED ONE INJECTION WHICH WAS LOADED EMPTY.......WHY THIS HAPPENED IF ALL ARE TESTED?) Simply liars.
Further all investigations, monitoring was supposed to be done by the Dr Gauri Agarwal but only once she investigated me. First time her assistant, second time local radiologist, third time Dr Sashi and then finally herself when the trigger shot was due.(During consultation DR GAURI AGARWAL tried to convince us that I never depend on others investigation....its always I do it personally) again a lie. Day 2 I was adviced intralipid ....costed me around 700 Rs....with day care charges separate.
Day before pick up they changed the venue...I was called up in Delhi....on my refusal to go there they managed to get it done at the centre we opted. BEFORE PICK UP ANAESTHESIA CHECK UP COST YOU SEPERATE 300 ( again not included in package). BEFORE PICK UP YOU ARE ASKED TO PURCHASE FEW INJECTIONS (AGAIN NOT INCLUDED IN PACKAGE).
2 days later is the time for ET. After ET again ur spouse will be handed over list of medicines....which are almost common to all of the patients (NOT INCLUDED IN PACKAGE). you will be handed over injections for 15 days with a NOTICE TO TAKE REST AND AVOID UR DAILY ROUTINE.
But after 15 days ur Beta HCG test reveals low counts and Dr GAURI AGARWAL gives a reason----implantation is not done. (IF EMBRYOS WERE PROPERLY MONITORED AND SELECTED HOW IMPLANTATION IS NOT SUCCESSFUL IS OUT OF MY KNOWLEDGE.) And on the other hand you are told of ANEUPLOIDY. THE INTERSTING FACT IS THAT THE DOCTOR IS AWARE OF THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY OF PSG WHEREIN U CAN STUDY THE EMBRYO AND OVERCOME THE BARRIER OF ANEUPLOIDY....but that u reveal to the patient when they fail in first attempt. And then they expect u to go for second cycle of IVF with PSG which cost you more 80000 apart of the IVF cost.
You simply have to pay them money...which no assurance or efforts on their side to give a good,positive result. No humanity.
What we observed is, most the couples they agree and take quick decisions of IVF with DR GAURI AGARWAL just because of her PACKAGE WITH EMI OPTION...but they are all unaware of the hidden cost behind the same. Hence our humble request to all of you, avoid such doctors.
