Due Date Club November 2009:Bangalore -Apollo Hospitals/ Dr. Chitra Ramamurthy
Name: Kabeer

Me and my wife are Pune, and she is 25 weeks pregnant. We are coming back to Bangalore in the 1st week September and she has put me in charge of shortlisting her doctor/hospital. I need some help from you guys on this.... Please share your experiences...
From all the reviews I have read I felt that Dr. Chitra Ramamurthy is pretty good, really impressed with her. One advantage for us, if we chose Dr. Chitra Ramamurthy is that Apollo Hopitals is just around 300 metres from my home.

I have heard a bit of cradle (both good & bad), but my wife doesnt support their attitude...

Anyway... Guys I will really appreciate your thoughts/experience with Dr Chitra Ramamurthy and Apollo Hospitals.

Any suggetions are most welcome.

Thanks in Advance

Subject:  Hi Kabeer
I m in my 26th week & seeing Dr . Chitra. Even i had concern abt she being not there for delivery but i have spoken to her and she said that she only will come for the delivery but in case she is not there due to any emergency, an equally competent doc with same amt of exp will be there to handle. Did you speak to her? Have you heard any reviews abt delivery in apollo hospital?

Hey Sandy! How are you..? Sorry for the delay was loaded with work... Suddenly the work load has built up with just 1 month left for the big day...
Yes, I talked to Dr Chitra whether she will be available for deliver. She said that she will be available in November for sure...! I hope she will be available...

Reviews on Apollo Hopitals has been ok... nothing bad has been reported about them and they are not supposed to be as good as cradle...
We chose Apollo Hospital to cradle because of the convenience to get to the hospital.

I am 25 wks pregnant and I go to Dr. Chitra. I am happy with the doctor though she is a little busy and might not be around the time of delivery. But the waiting time to have your scan done and to take certain other tests at Apollo takes way too much time. They make you wait indefinitely for scans especially. If you dont mind that, then it is fine.

You can also check about Dr. Hema Diwakaren at Diwakar Hospitals which is in 9th cross, J.P nagar.

Hope this helps.
