Takeaway

1. Qualification and certifications of the obstetrician

The credentials and qualifications of your potential obstetrician-gynaecologist should be readily available on their website or elsewhere online. You must determine when they go to medical school, whether a postgraduate degree is done or not, number of years of practice, affiliations to medical and governing bodies, whether they have had any disciplinary actions, malpractice suits, or complaints against them etc.

These days, there are many doctors delivering babies and you consider everyone as obstetrician due to lack of knowledge - they may be homeopaths, general physicians or just MBBS doctors. You should reaffirm that your doctor has done postgraduate specialisation in gynaecology (done from a government medical college ) if you want to be in safe hands.

2. Experience of the obstetrician

Your doctor should have sufficient years of experience after completion of their studies and have a rich experience in handling high-risk and complicated pregnancies, especially if you have a medical condition.

You should feel relaxed discussing your complications with the doctor and not be tense because of the inexperience of the doctor.

At Kalosa Clinic, you will get the best advice and care from a highly experienced obstetrician-gynaecologist.

3. Comfort and Rapport with the Doctor

The obstetrician-gynaecologist will be asking you very personal and specific questions about your reproductive health and sexual habits besides performing the gynaecological exam. Therefore, it is imperative that you feel comfortable with them so you can discuss everything. Understandably, this may turn out to be a subjective process, but it is critical to identify and consult someone with whom you can be comfortable. You should be able to clear any of your doubts unhesitantly with your doctor and not be fearful. Reaching out to your doctor should make you feel relaxed rather than giving you palpitations.

Gone are the days when females were unaware of anything outside their house. Managing pregnancy is now a two way affair, and as a patient you are also very much part of this journey and partner in decision making.Moreover, your doctor should facilitate open communication and not someone only who wants to tell you what to do. The OB-GYN must listen to and respect your decisions but of course, what is best for your health should be followed.

If you are looking for the best obstetrician in Gurgaon and gynaecologists in Gurgaon, it is time for you to contact us now.

4. Location of the Clinic

Your obstetrician-gynecologist will be an essential member of your healthcare journey. Since the OB-GYN will examine you for regular medical exams and manage your healthcare, you'll want someone who is reputed, experienced, and of course, accessible.

There is no point choosing a doctor who is many miles away from you and cannot be reached out regularly. In that case, you will be missing out many important windows in your journey to a successful outcome.

5. Availability/Schedule of the obstetrician

  • How easy is it to get an appointment with the obstetrician-gynaecologist?
  • What would be the estimated waiting period for a consultation?
  • Will I get sufficient time with the doctor during consultation to clear even my silliest doubts or made to opt for a quick visit due to shortage of time?
  • What are the success rate and schedules of pregnancies handled by the obstetrician-gynaecologist?
  • Will the obstetrician-gynaecologist deal with an emergency herself or would you be directed to the nursing staff or junior doctor for the same?
  • Does your doctor attend each and every childbirth herself or just manages the OPDs?
  • Will the doctor be available directly on phone or answer back any text messages, in case of any small queries I get at home?

It would be best if you find answers to these and many more questions to have complete peace of mind. These are the most important points which are often ignored, as patients get carried away by big names and end up getting disappointed when it is too late.

Remember, pregnancy is not only about a single event of delivery, it is actually a 9 month journey which sees many ups and downs in terms of your health.

Call us now to find out more about the best gynaecologists in Gurgaon.

6. Delivery Hospital reputation

You should know in which hospital your doctor is going to perform the delivery.

One of the most significant factors when it comes to selecting a hospital for pregnancy is the reputation of the hospital, its team of doctors and the support staff. It is best to choose a hospital that is multi disciplinary because then you can cross consult a doctor of other speciality in case of any medical complication with ease.

The hospital should be well equipped with the latest technology, facilities, a well-equipped lab for diagnostics and similar medical procedures as well as a blood bank.

Furthermore, the hospital should have adequate resources available at all times to handle emergency hospitalisations.

7. Attached NICU Facility

Choosing the best doctor for delivery without being sure where the delivery would occur and what would be the level of nursery care for your infant , is an extreme blunder which many of us often make.

Nobody can entirely predict if you will deliver on your expected delivery date in the beginning as certain complications may arise late in the pregnancy, along with several unfortunate incidents of preterm labour pains.

Moreover, at times the infants may have some breathing issues after birth. So your nursery and NICU should be well equipped to deal with such emergencies, be open 24 hrs with availability of NICU specialists and staff.

8. Insurance Coverage

You must understand what your insurance can or cannot cover. For this, it is essential to carefully and comprehensively review your benefits; and ask questions from your insurance provider and the hospital to find out what costs you would be responsible for. Identify which providers and hospitals are considered “in-network,” which will help you discover the best gynaecologist in Gurgaon.

It is worthwhile to note that consultation and other charges may differ from one hospital to another. Moreover, you must get an estimated idea of how much will be the approximate total cost of the delivery. Thereafter, it is important to check with your insurance provider about the upper limit of hospitalisation and then finalise the best hospital depending on your budget.

9. Safety in COVID Situations

During today's challenging times, when the COVID-19 pandemic severely impacts the entire world, the hospital or medical facility selected by you must follow the highest standards of hygiene, surface cleaning, surface disinfection, sanitisation, and clean water availability.

Moreover, the hospital must enforce strict rules and regulations related to the use of masks, gloves and do the patient screening to ensure safety and protection during these challenging times.

At Kalosa Clinic, we offer sanitised and hygienic conditions so that you always stay safe.

10. Patients Review

And last but not the least, you should reach out to your friends, family, or colleagues to check if they have a recommendation. The point is to find out why they like an obstetrician-gynaecologist, why would or would not recommend them. Getting recommendations and reading previous patients reviews can surely help you find the best obstetrician in Gurgaon.

Once you have a few names, it is time for some online research. This will help you get invaluable insights about the obstetrician-gynecologist's reputation, success rate, professionalism, ease of appointment scheduling, trustworthiness, and average wait times. You can also access the feedback, testimonials, and reviews of the obstetrician-gynaecologist.

Takeaway

Pregnancy is truly a life-changing event, and it is important that you have a high sense of care and diligence while selecting the right obstetrician-gynaecologist. You need to explore reviews, feedback, and testimonials online and have a word with your friends, family, and colleagues.
