Ultrasound in Gurgaon

Feb 08

Till a few years ago, there were not too many options in Gurgaon when one needed to get an Ultrasound done. Today, that has changed; in fact there are too many options available now. So, here’s a quick guide to some of the ultrasound centers that we (me and my wife) have visited personally, and our impression of it.

All of the major hospitals and clinics in Gurgaon now have an ultrasound facility. Here are the ones that we have been to:

Apollo Clinic – there is usually a very long wait at the Apollo Clinic. First of all, you need to have an appointment, but despite the appointment, you may have to wait for a couple of hours. This is a result of mismanagement and also the fact that they have only one machine, so sometimes it needs to be used in emergency cases ahead of the appointment holders.

The waiting area is also quite cramped and small.

Max Hospital – we have used this one a couple of times. Once again, like all hospitals, this also gives preference to emergency cases. My wife had to go in once with an emergency, and she was able to get it done immediately.

Another time when she called for an appointment, she was told that there was no slot available for 3 days. The overall feel of the place is however better than Apollo.

Artemis Hospital – this is of course a super speciality center with state of the art facilities. The best thing about Artemis is that they have two independent Ultrasound rooms, and so there is always plenty of availability and you usually get an appointment without too much wait.

The one thing bad about Artemis is that, they are not sensitive to providing same gender doctor by default. My wife has visited the place multiple times, and once she was assigned a male doctor for a pregnancy ultrasound. We didn’t have a big problem with that, but I imagine a lot of people may have. The biggest thing is that, when we took the appointment, a lady doctor was mentioned on the actual appointment, but a male doctor was assigned instead.

All these big hospitals have one flaw however – they have a staff of doctors who operate the facility. So, there is no guarantee of getting the same doctors every time you go there.

Our Best Experience has been at a different facility altogether. We highly recommend a clinic called the Ultrasound Clinic (not very original, I know), which is run by one Dr. Girish Pandit. He is one of the most highly recommended doctors and we were referred to him from multiple gynecologists. He specializes in pregnancy related ultrasounds. The best thing about this place is that the Doctor himself is a very nice person, and has the quality which puts you at ease.

The clinic is located in Qutab Enclave market in DLF Phase I. You can only get in by appointment, but the good thing is that the appointments times are usually met, so you don’t have to wait too long.

If you have had any experiences with Ultrasounds in Gurgaon, please leave a comment.

  1. Hi
    Dr Girish Pandit as a Doctor maybe he is very good but as a person he does not have high Moral values.
    He never leaves a chance to touch in inappropriate way, getting over friendly, asking personal questions.
    A patient and Doctor relationship is all about trust, he cannot maintain that coz of his flirting behavior. Holding hand while doing Ultrasound is very usual.
    I visited him multiple times but was always accompanied by my mom and on 1st instance when I had to visit him alone, he touched my legs and back multiple times. His acts made me so upset that would never visit or recommend him again to anyone.

  2. I have been to Dr.Girish Pandit twice for USG. He is good for sure but he never misses a chance to misbehave. I have undergone ultrasounds in London, at various big hospitals in Delhi, no sonographer has touched my legs even inadvertently as the probe is long enough for the doc to keep his hands at a distant. But not the same with Mr. Pandit, he has to misbehave by touching not just one but 4-5 times. I am taking time out to type it because I hate what he does.

    • That is strange. My wife always goes there and we haven’t received any such experience. Girish Pundit is the most recommended Ultra Sound specialist in Gurgaon. I don’t think he will be risking his reputation for some cheap thrills.

  3. Can someone please recommend a good orthopedic doctor in sector – 21, 22, palam vihar area in gurgaon???

  4. Hi friends, I have bitter experience of ultra sound at LAL’S PATH LAB at old DLF Gurgaon. The doctor who does the ultrasound does not bother to take the detail and depth scanning of object and pretends as over confident.
    I wasted my money at LAL’s Lab as I had to do it again at some other diagnostic center to get the detail and actual report.

    I found Dr.Pandit professionaly extremely efficient, with pleasing personality, manners, humility and cares for the patient. The charges are also very reasonable.He posseses all the three qualities of a good doctor; efficiency, humility and reasonable charges which is rarely found these days amongst the medical professionals.I strongly recommend his clinics.

    I got my follicular study done from Max Gurgaon yesterday for the first time. The report i received seemed to be very casual. It was not on max letterhead. It had no stamp/seal of Max hospital- very casual piece of paper. The radiologist did not write any notes on uterus size/ovary size or lesions. She did not even record LMP, Chlomiphene use. Only unreadable signatures of the radiologist. My previous two follicle studies were done at Medanta and each report was very formally and nicely written. I found that report very strange

  7. Hello,

    I agree with the comments about Dr. Girish Pandit. Excellent doctor and an amazing person. He is one of those doctors who really cares for their patients and treat them as humans. 10/10…for Dr. Girish Pandit.

    Dr Girish Pandit is excellent, wouldn’t change places or doctors for pregnancy ultrasounds for anything. I had an ectopic pregnancy scare and went to several doctors but he is the only one who diagnosed it properly and now I am 3 months pregnant. Best in Gurgaon!

  9. I went to Dr Girish Pandit for my first ultrasound too and liked his facility as well as his way of talking and explaining things. Also during my research for an ultrasound place, i found this website very helpful, so thanks for maintaining such a great resource.

  10. I would also recommend Dr. Girish Pandit. I have been getting my Ultrasounds with him and have had a great experience. He has a pleasing personality and takes time to explain. Although we had to wait for an 1 hr even with an appointment it was worth it :)

    I am a big fan of Dr. Mahajan. I have been to a couple of doctors but his ultrasounds and explanations are the most satisfying.

    I second Vaibhav’s and many others’ positive opinion about Dr.Pandit. In fact we have visited only one time for a second opinion, and he was too good in his work and the patience he shown in explaining the facts.

    I have another Ultrasound doctor to recommend as well. Dr. Mahajan who have his facility in Galleria. We have visited him several times and always have a satisfying scanning done, he explains every details and patiently answers all questions. Above all, he gives the report within 10 minutes which is quite good.

    • I totally agree. If not for Dr. Pandit, even I would recommend Dr. Mahajan in Galleria. Incidentally, he happens to be the husband of one of the most popular pediatricians in Gurgaon – Dr. Shaguna Mahajan

  13. i wanna take my wife for ultra sound. a doc has recomended dr. girish.

    i thk reading above opinions i must go.

  14. Hi Sushma, I am not sure what you mean. This post is about Dr. Pandit, and he doesn’t own this blog (I doubt he even knows about it’s existence).

    • pls send me the email address and cell phone number of dr girish pandit. i was an old patient of him. i am from bangladesh.long time i dont have any contact with him. pls try to send dr girish pandit’s cell number and email id. my email address is asma71bd@yahoo.com

  15. reading all these comments, I think someone tries to promote himself…

  16. Exactly Shweta, he is a well-known doctor and almost all doctors are well connected to him and do call him up to get his opinions. The same had happened with our doctor.

  17. Hi Guys .. My experiance to visit Dr. Pandit was very nice. He gave enough time for checking and answering all my questions. He is not only a good doctor also have a pleasing personality. I could not collect my report after ultrasound and visited to my gyne without report. during meeting the gyne we called up Dr Pandit , he was kind enough to attend the call and read our reports . what else you expect from a doctor in such monetary world.

  18. Hi guys,

    I am sorry but I had a complete different experience at the Ultrasound Clinic of Dr. Pandit: 2 hours waiting and a rather hasty ultrasound done. Dr. Jaideep gives much better service to pregnant ladies and other patients! I have three kids…

  19. Hi Manika, you are absolutely right. Dr. Pandit is very calming to be with. I like such doctors (no hustle bustle of trying to get you out of there as soon as possible). Noted about Dr. Jaideep.

  20. Hey Vaibhav! I totally second your recommendation for Dr. Girish Pandit. I used to go to Sitaram earlier, but a friend recommended him and I went to him recently. Totally loved the doc! He’s so pleasant and has such a great manner. He took a lot of time to show us our little one and describe what we were seeing on the screen and answer all our questions. Another great doc in the same market complex (DLF Phase 1) is Dr. Jaideep. He’s also very pleasant – I haven’t been to him for a pregnancy u/s but my husband had to visit him for something and we were both very impressed with his detail, his manner, and his care for the patients.
