Dear, Dr. Shivani,
We are very thankful to you and your team. It almost more than five year after marriage we had no result. Once we left all hopes but SCI IVF showed us a light of hope and now we have an angel (Baby).
Give your blessings to Tanishka
We were married in 2002. We were really blessed in our business but we cant have children. So, we went to different places like Rangoon, Mumbai, Bangkok and Guwahati doing IVF. But all fails after 1 or 2 months. We feel really down.
Our friends told us that it is possible to have children through surrogate. So, we came to SCI International Hospital Delhi. After 16 years of marriage, we were blessed with a beautiful daughter of our own through Dr Shivani. Words cant explain the height of our happiness.
May God blessed Dr Shivani and all the staff of SCI International hospital.
Dear Dr Shivani Sachdev Gour & Dr Pooja Gupta
Words not enough to thank you for all that you did for us. You made us feel comfortable during a time that was pretty scary for us. You are a great doctor and we are so glad that you were the one to help us achieve our goal of adding to our family.
We would like to thank you from the bottom of our heart for the IVF treatment which was successful in first attempt only. We truly admire the way you handled both of us right from day one upto the day the final confirmatory test done.
This is biggest decision to us was to decide which doctor to select. We meet a couple of doctors in Delhi. But the day we meet you and the way you filled us with confidence and your diagnosis and inference, it was clear to both of us that it is you with whom we are going to move ahead and today not only we both, but whole family is very happy to hear the news that my wife is pregnant.
This is really great time for us and our family and I can say with full confidence that you are not only the best IVF doctor in India, but also best motivators, supporter with a dashing personality.
The stay is amazing. You all made us feel comfortable and important. “We will never forget what you were able to do us.”
We wish you and your entire team along with special thanks to sister for their journey and we pray that every patient gets the baby they along for.
“Thank you, Dr Shivani Sachdev Gour and Dr Pooja, for your kindness and attention throughout my wife treatment. I appreciated your gentle manner and recommendations. Your patients are lucky to have you!”
