Would like to share my experience - I have been visiting Dr Vandana Khanijo for last 2 years, recently we have been blessed with a baby girl.
Visited yesterday. Long wait of more than one hour as appointment taken through Practo was not confirmed by Apollo. Second time this has happened. *** *** ****** ** ****, made me feel comfortable and worked through with me and my issues. Definitely recommended.
We had many questions since its our first baby but couldn't ask even one cos she had this unpleasant rude unapproachable personality. My hubby was excited so he asked a question about having veg or nonveg which she already mentioned however he wanted to give some instances when I had felt as if i am not able to digest nonveg but he couldn't complete his query as she said "Dint you hear when I said it in the first place?". I expect my doc to be approachable someone with whom I am comfortable, her face made me uneasy and her behaviour left me terrified. I felt she was in a hurry and just wanted to finish it asap.
I visited her few months ago regarding an intermittent bleeding I had. She checked me in a rush and me to explain the problem quickly. She was not ready to even hear me properly. She gave me a medicine to stop bleeding and asked me to get a test done, however I had to go out of town so the test got procrastinated and the medicine helped stop the bleeding. As the bleeding restarted again after few months i visited her asking her to write the test again and told her what happened last time. She was so impolite and disrespectful, the moment I got in she asked for the papers and I told her that I misplaced her prescription. Over that she humiliated me telling how can I just enter without any previous paper and that I am wasting her time. When I tried to explain she interrupted saying she is not interested in hearing my story. She pointed at my top taunting if I ever misplaced my garments that I misplaced her prescription. She would rather just say that she doesn't want to treat me, there was absolutely no reason for her to point me personally. She is highly inapproachable a doctor I have ever experienced.
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?
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.
