I have long story to describe. I am a patient of PCOS. Initially I did not take it seriously, but when we tried to conceive, we faced difficulty. We consulted many doctors and were really confused as we could not decide what to do. Then we visited Dr Dasgupta. At the very first visit, he did not tell anything about the decision plan, just asked us to try regularly and described us the facts of our problems with some pictures. Then we followed his advice. At times we felt very much frustrated and disappointed and felt that we can never become parents. At that point, when I or my husband contacted him, he remained cool and advised us in supportive manner. He never forced any decision on us, he rather asked our opinion every time. Incidentally, my tubes were found to be blocked in HSG. He again gave us long time to describe plan of treatment. I was undecided whether to go for IVF directly or trying laparoscopy. My husband wanted IVF but I preferred laparoscopy. Again on this issue we visited him several times and he talked to us in very relaxed and supportive manner. He repeatedly stress us that “its your decision, I can only help you”. I never found a doctor, showing such respect to his patients. After his treatment, my periods became regular and I thought PCOS was cured, but he gave no false reassurance and said “PCOS cannot be cured, just be controlled”. We finally decided for laparoscopy and did all necessary tests. But on the day before hospital admission, he asked me to check for pregnancy, as this was a normal protocol before laparoscopy. To our utter surprise and by the blessings of God, it was positive. Throughout my journey, I was very much scared. I used to think everything regularly, but whenever we talked to him, he boosted us in positive manner, although he never gave any false guarantee. He remained alert to my situation and whenever I contacted him by phone or Whatsapp, he responded quickly. I heard from many of my friends, how did they feel hopeless during pregnancy as they could not reach their doctors. But fortunately, I never felt that. I opted for C-section. But at 35 weeks, suddenly I felt no movement of my baby. When called him, he took it seriously and arranged for CTG test and decided for urgent delivery. He visited me regularly in the hospital, when I was admitted and discharged me 3 days after my operation. I will never forget what he has done for me, how he transformed my life and how did he walk extra miles to take care of me. It’s simply beyond any formal doctor-patient relationship. I know I cannot have any words to thank him, so I am not saying anything like “Thank You”.
