Must confess we visited Dr.Nikhil Datar to take a second opinion and we are very glad that we did!
The doctor we were consulting earlier was regarded as competent, but we were not satisfied with the way she engaged with us: not taking time to answer our queries or put us at ease during our first/twin pregnancy. In fact after every appointment we would leave more worried than before.
We visited Dr.Nikhil Datar to take a second opinion. Zeroed in on him basis the great reviews on various sites. We had to travel around 90 minutes to reach his clinic in malad from our home in bhandup; and we were not really sure if that would work out on an ongoing basis. Given the bad experience with the earlier doctor we were rethinking if the doctor would be worth the time and effort to travel all the way. We decided to give it a shot anyways.
And we are grateful to God that we did. After meeting Dr. Datar for the first time we left feeling positive, upbeat and stress free.
Here was a Doctor extremely competent but also more importantly genuine, warm and approachable. He had a long line of patients but still took time to answer all our concerns and assuage all our fears.
And from thereon every appointment was a positive and uplifting experience. We had our share of pregnancy issues, minor emergencies but through it all we were assured and relaxed because we, through God’s grace, had Dr. Nikhil Datar on our side to handhold and lead us onward week by week, day by day. He would take all the tension and worry away and keep us upbeat. Must also thank his fantastic team at Cloud Nine hospital Malad. Dr. Datar’s associates Dr. Meghana Shedge and Dr. Urva, our Sonologist Dr. Smita Pawar - everyone was brilliant! They always paid attention to every detail and scans were done with utmost care and patience and would take time and tell us all the details of both babies and their growth rates.
Finally on the day of delivery we had our lovely twins- Doctor ensured that the babies came out only after 36 weeks and that the babies left with mother, no NICU or any other complications. Recovery from surgery was extremely smooth.
From thinking at the start to whether this Doctor was worth time and effort to travel 90 minutes to his clinic……to thinking we will visit only this Doctor even if we are to move cities …..and finally after delivery the one thought we had was : What good deeds have we done to be worthy of a Doctor like him. Its only through God’s grace that we found this Doctor at the right time. Thank you for all the guidance, reassurance and handholding Doctor!
