But have you thought of which gynecologist of specialist to choose? We have curated a list with the top 5 Gynaecologists in Chennai just for you.

You should be able to gauge if your specialist has the time & patience to answer your questions.

Hence, it is pivotal to choose a good gynecologist who understands your needs & more importantly is available to attend to you in case of any emergency.

The fetal development right from conception to birth should be tracked meticulously & only a good & experienced doctor can detect the occurrence of an abnormality in the brain or physical development. The journey towards motherhood can be stressful at times, hence choose your obstetrician wisely. We have articulated the best gynecologists in town. The below list collated is in no particular order.

Dr. V.K Shantha is fraud, cruel, and one of the worst doctor, i ever seen. she was consulting my wife right from the beginning. But she didn't show her face during the time of delivery. But in detailed bill summary, SMF fraud used to mention " SVD with Episiotomy - Dr. V.K Shantha charge is - 15,000 ". Dr. Shantha not even showed her face, but they charge like this. Their tricks to attract people by having the term "Normal delivery". The quote is "Dr. V.K Shantha is famous for normal delivery". I don't understand one thing here, anyhow "she's not going to come to labour ward building, so whats the matter here whether she is famous for normal or cesarean" ?? Will you answer for this ? I thought, this happened only for me. But a week ago i met a guy standing outside of labour ward, he said "I am standing outside of labour ward from yesterday night, but Dr. Shantha din''t come here at all" later i understood, Dr. Shantha doing this fraud for everyone without mercy.

Deeply regret the inconvenience caused. Dr.shantha may not attend deliveries after 7pm or 8pm. This is the common feedback shared by many parents. All deliveries before that during the day are done by her.

Please remove fraud Dr. V.K Shantha from this blog. She's a coward. She was consulting for my wife. SMf (Sundaram Medical Foundation) just created a fake name like, Shantha is good doctor, she only will handle during pregnancy. But she won’t even come to the building where delivery happens(labour ward). At the end PG or trainee doctors delivered my baby. The same thing happend for many others as well. She never used to handle any pregnancy case during the time of delivery. I admitted my wife three times there, but she used to come there only during the time of discharge. Also few days ago, when I was just standing in the hospital corridor, a guy told me the same thing is that “Dr. Shantha is our consulting doctor, I m standing here from last night but she didn’t come here at all.” Request you all that not to go to SMF hospital for any treatment especially for Gynecology and pediatrics. They killed my baby because of their brainless pediatrics staffs. My baby admitted their, even if the baby is in emergency condition, they will ask their trainees nurse/doctor or PG practicing doctor to handle your baby to give them more practice by keeping your baby. This is what they did to me and killed my baby.
