Aspire Fertility Clinic, HSR Layout
The main doctor at the Aspire Fertility Clinic is Dr. Ashwini G.B. and when Dr.Ashwini is not present, Dr.Narmatha will take over for consultations. They also have a team of doctors who will coordinate for the IVF procedure. The staff said that the average cost of IVF treatment will be between Rs.2,00,000 to Rs. 2,50,000 and that they have a good success rate.
Dr. Ashwini seems to be approachable and one can take an appointment and meet the doctor on the same day itself. The staff I spoke with was professional and courteous. The clinic has all necessary facilities for fertility treatments including embryo freezing facilities. Overall, I would rate it as an average experience.
Wellspring Mother & Child Hospital, Bellary Road
The staff at the Wellspring Fertility Hospital, they were courteous but weren’t able to provide me with many details. There are two doctors for fertility consultation, Dr.Aasha Latha and Dr.Barathi but since there was no website, I could not find any references to the doctors.
She was not able to tell me the average cost of an IVF cycle. When asked about the success rate, she said that many women have attained success, but was not able to provide me with a number. As far as the facilities are concerned, they have all the necessary facilities for in-patients and have embryo freezing facility which will cost approximately Rs. 30,000 separately.
Overall, it was not much of a convincing experience.
Dr. Vidyamani Lingegowda, Lalbagh Nursing Home and Infertility Centre, Jaya Nagar
Lalbagh Infertility Centre is one of the popular IVF clinics in Bangalore mainly because of Dr. Vidyamani who started it 27 years ago especially to provide IVF treatment for women. Now it has all the facilities needed for IVF and their specialty is Blastocyst transfer which means that the embryo is developed in the laboratory for five or six days after insemination, while in the usual IVF, the embryos are transferred to the womb two to three days after insemination. They have testing facilities for PGD and PGS.
The average cost of one cycle of IVF here is Rs. 2,00,000 and one can get an appointment the same day to directly see Dr. Vidyamani. Overall, it was a satisfying conversation.
Smile Baby IVF Hospital, Lingarajapuram
Dr. Managala Devi is the practicing doctor at Smile Baby IVF Hospital who is an Obstetrician, Gynaecologist and Fertility specialist. They have an extensive facility available with all the necessary facilities needed for infertility treatments including embryo freezing and donation facilities, blastocyst facilities and many more. The staff was polite and friendly. She patiently heard me out without cutting in and never once gave the standard answer as “You can come and see the doctor. She will answer these questions”.
She made me comfortable to speak with her and politely answered all questions. Regarding total cost of IVF, she said that it will be Rs. 75,000 per cycle and other charges for simulation and extra procedures for embryo or semen treatments will be added to it.
Overall, it was a very pleasant and informational conversation.
Dr. Vijayalakshmi Paramesh, Bangalore Medical Centre, Kalyan Nagar
Dr. Vijayalakshmi Paramesh is an obstetrician, infertility specialist and gynecologist with 23 years of experience. She visits Bangalore Medical Centre regularly for consultations and treatments for fertility issues.
The staff at Bangalore Medical Centre didn’t have enough details about the fertility centre or about Dr. Vijayalakshmi. Embryo freezing facilities is unavailable.
When asked about the success rate of the doctor, the two staffs I spoke with did not know what it meant at all, and said that only doctor can answer such questions and that I can decide after consultation to see if I want to choose Dr. Vijayalakshmi. When I persisted again, I was rudely and sarcastically told ‘100%’. That, in my opinion, was not the way a patient should be spoken to and I was not able to gather any more information about the doctor from them.
GarbhaGudi IVF Centre, Jaya Nagar
My first impression with the GarbhaGudi IVF Centre was ‘honest’. Without any diplomacy or any questions from their side, all my questions were answered with honesty. GarbhaGudi is one of the newly rising IVF clinics in Bangalore. When asked about the success rate,they said their success is between 50 to 60%. Apart from the main centre in Jaya Nagar, they have other branches in Electronic City, Kalyan Nagar and Hanumanth Nagar.
While Jaya Nagar has all the facilities needed from embryo freezing to blastocyst transfers, the other centres are currently coming up, so all facilities may not be available in all branches. Dr. Asha Vijay is the founder and a leading gynecologist. Each branch has its own set of doctors and specialized team.
Dr. Poornima Ramesh, Ashwini Clinic, Malleswaram
Dr. Poornima Ramesh is one of the most experienced doctors for infertility treatments in Bangalore. She has over 26 years of experience as an Obstetrician and Gynecologist. The staff at Ashwini Clinic said that she is available on a daily basis both on mornings and evenings.
Though they were not able to provide a success rate, they said that Dr. Poornima is very good in fertility treatments and asked me to visit the doctor. There would not be any preliminary tests and one can see the doctor directly. The staff had no clue about the cost of an IVF cycle and again repeatedly told me to visit the doctor to get more details. When asked about their website, the staff informed that they do not have any website to refer to.
As per my personal experience, I would visit this clinic mainly for the doctor, but not sure about the staff.
Dr. Shobha Venkat, Bhargavi Clinic, Indira Nagar
Dr. Shobha Venkat is a one of the leading Obstetrician and Gynecologist in Bangalore. She has over 20 years of experience and practices in Bhargavi Clinic.
I would say that my experience with the clinic was not good. The first time I called and started asking the questions, she cut the call after hearing my question. I waited for a few minutes and called again asking for an appointment to see Dr. Shobha Venkat. She answered the time when I can visit, but immediately cut the call when I asked about the average IVF cycle cost. That was a rude experience.
Dr. Shobha Venkat is also a consultant at Cloud Nine Hospitals and Manipal Hospital and pays a few days weekly visit.
Cherish Fertility Clinic, Koramangala
The doctor at Cherish Fertility Clinic is Dr. K. S. Sreekumar. The staff was friendly and gave me all the details. The clinic has all facilities for IVF, IUI and other scans and tests. The procedure will be done during the day and the clinic does not have facilities for patients to stay over. Cost of one cycle of IVF is Rs. 80,000, which excludes the cost of medicines, and other prior tests.
Overall, it was a good experience with the Cherish Fertility Clinic with all my queries answered straightaway without any diplomacy.
Dr. G. Kasturi, Bhoomi IVF Centre, Vijaya Nagar
Dr.G. Kasturi is the founder of Bhoomi IVF Centre. She is an Obstetrician, Gynaecologist & Infertility Specialist and has an experience of 15 years. When I spoke with the staff, I got the impression that they have a good opinion on her, though they were not able to tell me the exact success rate of the doctor. One can directly get an appointment easily and see Dr. Kasturi. The centre has all equipments needed for IVF treatments and also has in-patient facilities.
Overall, it was an average experience.
City Clinic and Infertility Center, Fraser Town
Dr. Rizwana Tasneem is the main doctor in City Infertility Center. With over 26 years of experience, she is an Infertility Specialist with MD in Obstetrics & Gynecology. The staff looked disinterested to answer any questions. I got confirmation that they have an inpatient facility and facilities for PGD and PGS testing available and that I have to make an appointment a day earlier to see the Dr. Rizwana.
Other than that, I was not given any information at all and was told that the doctor will answer any more questions. When asked about the success of the doctor, adding details that she seems to be one of the popular doctors recommended by many, the answer got was “You check it in Google, Ma’am”.
So this created a bad image of the clinic in my opinion.
Dr. Chitra Ramamurthy, Apollo CM Fertility Centre, JP Nagar
Dr. Chita Ramamurthy is one of the experienced doctors available for infertility treatments in Bangalore. She has done her MD in Obstetrics & Gynecology, and has over 33 years of experience. She is available daily in Apollo CM Fertility Centre which is one of the popular IVF clinics in Bangalore. One needs to get appointment two days prior to meet her. The staff provided with the basic details of the centre but was reluctant to give the cost of one cycle of IVF in their centre. They have all the necessary facilities for IVF treatment including PGD and PGS testing facilities.
Dr.Chitra Ramamurthy is also available in Bingi’s Heart care and Fertility Centre 3 to 4 days a week for a few hours.
Srujana Hospital, Electronic City
In Srujana Hospital, for fertility treatments, Dr. Deepmala is the main doctor to perform the procedures who has 12 years of experience. There are also others who will consult for infertility treatments, and Dr.Prathiba, an IVF Specialist also comes for consultations on Fridays. Though the staff was not able to provide the average cost of IVF cycle, she said that the consultation fee is Rs.500. They have all basic facilities needed for IVF treatments, but wasn’t able to find their official website.
With so many options available, are you confused about which doctor to choose? Read the practical guide to choose the right fertility doctor.
Dr. Archana Agarwal, Mannat Fertility Clinic, Marahathalli
With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Archana Agarwal is one of the leading infertility consultants in Bangalore. The staff at the hospital was pleasant and well-informed and said that the success rate was very high for Dr. Archana Agarwal and many come to specifically see her. Mannat Fertility Clinic itself has all the necessary facilities to perform IVF procedures including embryo freezing facility.
Caree Fertility Centre, Basaveshwar Nagar
The main consulting doctors in Caree Fertility Centre are Dr. Sangeetha Shivanand and Dr. P.K. Vijayakumar. The staff who spoke was professional. This centre has PGD and PGS facilities, embryo banks, embryo adoptions, and facilities. The average cost for embryo freezing is Rs. 30,000 for 3 months. The doctors seem reachable here.
