Trying since long:Infertility doctors/institutes in Mumbai
2009-08-04
Name: BD
Hi, I have been trying to search for good doctor in Mumbai but could not find it all the info in one place.
This is an attempt to help myself and others like me, so request you all to share your experiences preferebly in this format or any format which you may suggest.. Thanks in Advance.

Name - Dr. Malpani
Location - Colaba, Mumbai
Cost - Expensive, Approx 25k for IUI and 1.5L for IVF(Others may please share experience with other treatments)
Clinic - Clean and even plays nice music. The approach through basement and then small dingy lift is highly inconvenient though.
Staff - Attentive but dont seem very qualified. He seems to have hired either retired nurses or freshers.
Hygiene - All instruments seem to be clean however since staff is amatuerish, you never know.
Waiting time - On an average 2 hours inspite of taking appointment.
Doctor - Good in talking but not so good with results. I was not impressed.
Others - (1) Makes the woman go past all waiting patients wearing a gown during procedure which is highly embarassing. (2) The nurse at the main desk thinks no end of herself and is many times rude with the patients.
Rating out of 5 stars - 2.5

Will share more soon, thanks

BD

Hello BD,
You were not happy with that doctor then you need to stop consulting to that doctor.Because if the treatment is not so proper it is waste of trying to consult to that particular doctor.

IUI is very cheap else where, I dont know why people spend 25k. Beleive me Drs are getting very greedy, & they recommend IUI to any & everyone. IUI just reduces sperm travel by dropping it near to egg. So if u are not getting pregnant with average to good sperm count ur doctor must not actually prescribe it. Even I dont think IVF & ICSI should cost so high heard people paying 2to 3 lakhs, & it can all be managed in 50k with good profits to doctor.

Subject:  Question for all Doctors, Dr. Firuza, Dr. Malpani
(1) Why are the treatments so expensive where as the procedure in itself is so straight forward? Especially in IUI.

(2) How much is your commission in the injections and other medicines you provide from your clinic like Menogon.

(3) Why dont you give only that many appointments for a day, which you can keep and handle unlike the current scenario, where you are trying to maximise your profits by following the first come first serve and serve all system. The current appointment system is nothing but a sham and you make everyone wait for hours... is the patients time not important?

(4) Why do you become defensive and rude when patient asks some uncomfortable or silly question?
Do you have some thing to hide??
Dont you understand that this is an expensive and new treatment for the patient. They are bound to have a million questions... Didnt you ever do anything new in your life?... how many questions did you ask when you were learning to drive a car?? This is the life of one' s beloved and the beginnnings of a new life we are talking about here.

More questions to follow soon :-) Thank You,
BD

Hi All,

1st of all, im changing and giving improved ratings to Dr. Malpani and Dr. Firuza for responding. It shows they have some integrity and the guts to face the patient feedback.

Now todays Doctor is Dr. Pai of Lilavati Hospital.

Name - Dr. Pai
Location - Lilavati, Bandra, Mumbai
Cost - Approx 5k for IUI & 1.5L for IVF and here' s the catch, injections, meds and scans etc. are not included. His USP is that he refers you to local doctors for scans etc. Going rate is 30% for commission but to be fair i dont know what is his arrangement. He does insist though on going to this one particular doctor. In short, the total expenses are much much more then what he claims. Oh and by the way, 600-800 bucks for every visit/consultation!!!
Clinic - Nice, clean, big and Very clean, thanks to Lilavati.
Staff - Mostly junior doctors and some of them are very rude in absence of the doctor.
Hygiene - All instruments seem to be clean however since staff is mostly junior, you never know.
Waiting time - On an average 1 hour inspite of taking appointment.
Doctor - Big mouth, talks as if he is god and brags a lot. Seems to be very money minded. Has a hands off approach and the clinic is virtually run by his juniors. Did I mention his Page 3 partner doctor, Ms. Nandita Palshetkar. She was recently on page 3, bombay times having a great birthday bash. So now we know where all our money is going and why the treatments are so expensive.

I think this is a great idea. If patients provide feedback to doctors, then IVF clinics can improve their services !

Our building we being repaired, which is why the entrance to the clinic was temporarily through the basement.

One advantage is being a free-standing clinic is that patients don' t have to wait in line to make payments ( as they do in hospitals !)

SLK,

Did you get treatment at Jaslok? If so, did you get a positive outcome?

Thank you.

Subject:  IVF charges
Malpani charged 1.5 lakh for IVF treatment? I paid him almost 2.5 lakhs earlier this year. His treatment fee alone was USD 3,500 (almost 1.75 lakhs), and with medications added on top of that, it ended up crossing the 2.5 lakh mark.

I went to another clinic in Jaipur (though, not as well known), and paid 95,000 per IVF treatment, including medication.

None of this matters though, since I did not have success anywhere :-(

I am now researching Firuza Parikh (who has quoted me close to 3 lakhs) and Hinduja (who quoted me 1 lakh) for an IVF cycle. Would appreciate feedback from anybody who has had any experience with these docs? I am more concerned about a positive outcome ...

Subject:  Thanks, Please keep posting
Thanks SLK. Was your IVF with her a success?

Other folks please keep posting, the doctors out there are charging us alot of money and may or may not be giving us the best treatment and this is the only way we can help each other. So again... please post your experiences, good or bad, with any doctor.

Couple of more things on Firoza.
(1) She is fit for NRI and celebrities as she is painfully expensive.
(2) After procedure the patient is left on a strecher for a long time outside in the waiting area in full view of all patients.
(3) She suggests all types of expensive tests which may or may not be relevant and prescribes alot of surgical treatments.
(4) I would give her a 2 out of 5 rating.

Subject:  IVF under Dr. Firuza
I had given up all the hope of having baby after undergoing unsuccessful 2 rounds of IUI in some other clinic.(Though I still had age in my hands). I was diagnosed with endometriosis and came to Dr. Firuza for 2nd opinion. I am very impatient kind of person when it comes to waiting and I agree due to so many patients seeking treatment and opinion under Dr. Firuza, I became impatient to the extent in my 1st visit that I was about to leave without meeting her. Howwever once I met her, I was convince that I am undergoing IVF under her. She personally attends to each and every patient.I never saw her discriminating any patient. I would highly recommend for patients who have lost hope of having baby.She would never recommend unnecessary tests and medicines.
