Story Behind the Centre
Dr. Nagori’s institute for infertility and IVF, is a one stop fertility centre with a very high repute for ethical and scientific practice.

This institute also has a very high repute as a training institute for obstetricians and gynaecologists to achieve a special competence in infertility management.

Every single fitting, tile, furniture and art piece are all selected by them personally and arranged with a specific purpose. It is their dream come alive for the realization of patients’ dreams of having a child.
The Waiting lounge
Yes, it is a lounge and not a waiting room. That is how it feels. It is huge with sofas arranged in small circles, to look like a lounge of a hotel. It is decorated with paintings, plants and show pieces to look more live and pleasant. More over light Indian music which is being played throughout the working hours makes the atmosphere even lighter. This area has been divided into two parts.
There are two consulting rooms. One for Dr. Chaitanya Nagori and another one for Dr. Sonal. Entering these rooms gives a feel of a corporate office rather than a hospital. The décor of the rooms does not make them feel like a hospital at all. The stress of the patients may thus be partially relieved.
