** ******** ** *** ** *** ****** ************* ** ******** She has handled the delivery of my wife through LSCS (C section surgery). Throughout the pregnancy period, she had been very helpful and caring. Please note, there have been cases in Lifeaid Medical Center where Dr Avantika had ensured normal delivery too. In our case it was a second pregnancy and first being a C section this was also done via C section. ** ******** ** ************* *** doesn't run after money at all.Lifeaid Medical Center is small but has most of the facilities which are necessary for a nursing home.Though it lacks a baby nursery.
She was very experienced and she explained my problems, very nicely I was very happy. I would like to recommend the doctor. I was planning for having a baby so I wanted to consult the doctor actually treatment didn't go with the result but the doctor and the procedure was done was all good. I wanted to suggest few things the ultrasound which I was going through was only scheduled evening so if in case my office hours are from 12 to 9 pm if I case I want to go in the morning there was no ultrasound specialist in that hospital. So, I wanted to recommend at least have one section in the morning and other in the evening this is it, the doctor is very experienced she understands our medical history completely as a couple also she understand the situation.
This was my first visit doctor to after the diagnosis was all fine. So, I didn't need to visit her again. The doctor listen to my problems, it was a great experience, it was really helpful I was worried about the problem I was facing but it was all clear all sorted in one day test, the doctor is really nice and very experienced. I would like to recommend the doctor to my family and friends, I think the treatment cost pretty much but everything is good from the doctors part, *** ** * **** **** ******* very experienced, very polite, very patiently she heard the problems, so it was all good.
Dr. Avantika has been a great guide for me through out my pregnancy. This was my first pregnancy and i did have several issues and complications during the 9 months .... however i felt assured and safe at all times. My concerns were always heard and the doctor would talk to me till all my questions were answered.
