About Rotunda

We provide comprehensive IVF services , all under one roof, so patients don’t need to shuttle from clinic to lab to the scan center. Our practice is restricted to treating infertile patients exclusively, and, we offer our patients the very best medical care – at affordable prices. We are one of India’s first ISO 9001-2000 certified IVF clinic ( www.iwannagetpregnant.com).

If you have done IVF at another clinic, have you got upset that a different doctor attended your procedures each time? Are you forced to talk to a number of different nurses, with no real direction ? Are you having trouble getting the feedback or explanations you need ? At Rotunda-CHR, all the treatment ( including the consultation, all the ultrasound scans, egg collection and embryo transfers are done personally by either Dr Gautam Allahbadia or one of the members of our Clinical Team. The buck stops with us – and we don’t delegate any part of your delicate and critical IVF treatment to anyone else !

At Rotunda, we recognize the importance of the healthcare team functioning as a coordinated unit in the overall treatment plan. Each member of the Rotunda staff, from the physicians to the egg donor coordinator, plays a critical role in providing the high-level of reproductive healthcare that our patients have come to expect at Rotunda. We acknowledge the skills and contributions of each team member and support education, outreach and research to enhance our staff’s knowledge and further the field of reproductive healthcare.

One response to “About Rotunda

  1. Tan Wei Xin

    Dear Dr. Allahbadia,

    I’m a final-year communications student from Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University and my name is Tan Wei Xin. My team members and I are involved in a project revolving around the lives of surrogate mothers in India and this is a year-long project which we intend to publish into a illustrated book.

    We are coming down to India, most notably to Mumbai and Anand to do on-the-ground reporting and we wish to establish contacts before we head down some time in December in order to facilitate the progress of our project.

    As such, we wish to correspond with you, Sir, as we have noticed your name in many articles about surrogacy in India and you are definitely one of the expert voices we need whilst we gather information for our book.

    Hopefully you’ll be able to see this message and reply me via e-mail (tanweixin@gmail.com) and we can start corresponding from here.

    Basically, our project aims to highlight the lives of surrogate mothers while exploring other issues such as couples who seek surrogacy in India and the science of surrogacy etc.

    I look forward to your reply as soon as possible and thank you for taking time out to review my message.

    Warmest regards,
    Tan Wei Xin
    Nanyang Technological University
