How was your experience with Ayyagari Ramchandra at Ayyagari Ramchandra MD?
Doctor was a caring person & explained all the treatment & what his plans where to help you conceive. Doctor however is a cookie cutter type - he is set in his ways & methods and ONLY wants to do what he know. Which might not work for ALL of his patients. He helped me ovulate & get achieve pregnancy, unfortunately he failed to hear my concerns on progesterone & the pregnancy was lost at 6 weeks. I've spoke to other patients - he always finds something wrong with your cervix & does a cauterization procedure, he recommends ovary drilling, and procedures that don't correlate to ones situations. It may help some & other has no way of helping.

Describe the protocols Ayyagari Ramchandra used in your cycles at Ayyagari Ramchandra MD and their degree of success.
Doctor will start out with oral medication, & checking your cervix - he then states something is wrong with cervix does a biopsy & recommends cauterization. ( I've spoken to quite a bit of his patients & this is confirmed his method of starting) He then recommends an HSG ( which I for sure feel was a great way to rule out blocked tubes & uterus position). Then after 3 rounds not conceiving on your own he recommends IUI & ovary drilling. We went ahead with IUI but politely declined Ovary drilling because i ovulate on both sides of ovary.

They would not answer calls very often, I would have to check in with them during my cycles to schedule our IUI & ultrasound checks.
