Women's Health My Priority!

One year back, our angel was born. Respectful Dr. Shiva was the guardian & strong support just like family throughout my pregnancy journey. Her understanding, expertise and dedication at every step made me confident to enjoy my maternity phase, especially during the unforeseen time of Covid-19 & lock down. We will always cherish those moments and the appointment visits to excitedly hear and see the baby growing inside.
Thank you for everything, you have given us the best gift in our lives 🙂

Karishma Bhalla

Thank you Dr Shiva for handling my pregnancy journey and in fact guiding and helping at every step just like family. I never felt scared to ask you anything, you always had the right expert level advise for me. My most trusted gynae in all of UAE. Can’t thank you enough.

Gurpreet Dhillon

I was fortunate to have found a good gynaecologist in Dr. Shiva. She doesn’t rush through appointments, takes time to understand your history and ailments and doesn’t prescribe medications unless necessary. She is extremely patient and professional. I cannot recommend her enough! Her pleasant nature makes it easier for me to bond with her as a patient and explain my concerns. Thank you for all your care. I feel valued as a patient and person in your hospital.

Neha Rafeek

‘After searching for and consulting a couple of Gynaecologist for my multiple fibroids I met Dr Shiva who put all my apprehensions to rest. Considering my pre existing and a bit difficult condition I was apprehensive and kept postponing my surgery since years. But after meeting with Dr Shiva she put me at peace and patiently explained to me and my husband the surgery and the associated risks and really comforted us since mine was a high risk surgery. I am extremely happy to write that the surgery was a success and I am relieved of the very heavy monrhly bleeding and the accompanying pains and on way to full recovery after a major surgery.
I thank Dr Shiva and her team of doctors, support staff and post operative nurses for their good care and support.
I came across Dr shiva as a professional with a very pleasant, calm and a friendly demeanour and a humble human being and I am ever thankful to her. May God bless her.’


Thank you, Dr.Shiva for everything you have done to save my life. You are my Angel!! Good doctors like you understand responsibility better than privilege and practice accountability better than business. Before saying that you are an extraordinary doctor I want to tell you that you are an extraordinary human being.

Ms. Meenakshi Ahmed

I had a biopsy scanning and I had strange cells in my Uterus and Dr.Shiva called them funny cells and on her advice, I had surgery or rather a procedure, which lasted about 15-20 minutes and I was full of life and energy. I truly believe she is an angel and she has saved my life. She is always there when I call her and when I really need her. I thank her very much.

Ms. Salwa

I would like to say I am eternally grateful to you and doctors, nurses and support staff during this wonderful journey. I had an amazing experience and up until last year we did not know it was possible for us to have a baby. I will forever remember you in all our prayers and we thank you very much. A very difficult journey for a lot of people but you made it so very easy with your calm nature and thanks to you I have a little angel in my life.

Ms. Kavitha Ramkumar

I met Dr.Shiva for the first time when I was 20 weeks pregnant with my first child. I was extremely nervous when I went to meet her for the first time. But the moment I entered her room, there was a strange aura that gave me a very settling feeling because I saw so many pictures of kids she has delivered on her board and I was at peace. A lot of thank you notes from parents and that gave me the confidence and positivity and from then on it was a soothing experience, I and my husband had so many silly questions but Dr. Shiva very patiently answered all those questions and ensured that we were at ease. Mainly because of my experience of my first delivery, I made sure to visit her for my second baby as well. I strongly recommend her to everyone to deliver their babies to visit Dr.Shiva

Ms. Vandana Nair

After months of struggling with abdominal pain I got connected with Dr. Shiva in the very first consultation I knew I was in safe hands. To this day I haven’t found any doctor who is as professional and affectionate as Dr. Shiva. She showed great care and support during my surgery and post-operative care. More than a year for the surgery and I have had no issues and I am leading a normal healthy life.
