Consulted Dr. Vandana Hegde (Gynecologist) for Irregular Menstruation
I do not recommend the doctor
Hoped for better: Wait time
Even my appointment was booked from beforehand, I had to wait for a very long time. I spent almost 2h30/3h in the clinic, including test and waiting time. First it was waiting just to meet another doc, for a general basic check and info, then test, then again waiting(this one was understandable), got test result then again waiting to finally meet the doctor with whom my appointment was booked on practo. I was again asked to do some other test, which I refused due to the time that it will take me again. Except for that the doctors were very friendly.

Thank you for your review. Infertility case history taking is for a couple hence takes longer and some patients have a huge volume of diagnostic reports and treatment records which all needs to be recorded. This consultation is also done by a post fellowship doctor specialised in infertility. Then there is counseling required regarding evaluation and treatment plans. All of this takes a minimum of 1-1.5 hrs. The decision of this is taken post a scan. Actually you book a consultation slot and come and when you need a scan you will need a new slot as we have continuos scan appointments already but we adjust your slot in between them. Now after scan you need to show that report to me and this is actually another consultation slot being given to you on the same day. Post this the couple will be advised certain investigations and will come back later for report review which is again free within 10days. So all this is not compulsory to be done same day and you can book your appointment for scan at a convenient date and time and again book a slot for review later again. But with Hyderabad traffic your travel time three times will be much more than the time you spent in your first visit. So we have actually given you three appointments with one booking for the day. We are doing all this for your convenience but you can always decide what works best for you.
