Many IVF doctors take pride in the large number of patients
they treat , and they boast about the fact that they do a huge number of cycles
every month .
While this may be great for their bragging rights - and their bank balance - this is often not in the patient's best
interest , because these clinics are often like assembly line factories , where
everyone is treated with exactly the same rigid protocol.
There is very little personalization , and no hands on care ,
because the doctor is so busy doing one procedure after another , that he
really doesn't have the time or the energy to focus on you.
This is extremely unfair on patients , who end up feeling
cheated , especially when the cycle fails.
To add insult to injury, the doctor comes up with all kinds
of flimsy excuses and reasons as to why the cycle failed â and to make matters
worse, often ends up blaming the patientâs eggs ( and/or sperm and/or uterus)
for the failure. He then suggests an even more expensive alternative treatment ,
such as using donor eggs or donor sperm or surrogacy , so he can make even more
He ends up singing a completely different tune after the
cycle has failed , and rather than taking responsibility for this , or trying
to explain to the patient what could have gone wrong , he washes his hands off,
and tries to pin the blame on to the patient .
This is why patients are so unhappy and dissatisfied with the
quality of IVF treatment they get in India .
Unfortunately , this is still an unregulated industry , which
means patients need to be careful about whom they select for their test tube
baby treatment â let the patient beware !
If you want hands on personalized care, you need to spend
time and energy on selecting the right clinic ! Just because the clinic is very
crowded doesn't necessarily mean it's the right clinic for you â please use
your discretion when making such an important decision !
