‘’I believe that procreation is not at the hand of human being. It is God who decided the fate of any couple regarding child birth. But couples when fail to get child within a reasonable period must seek help of physician. Physicians are only path finder and are able to remove the obstacles of path of child birth. We always realize the emotion of couples and try our best to do for them with a very sympathetic attitude. We always do with our sincere effort by acquiring appropriate knowledge of infertility management. I love to see a gestational sac with embryo in womens’ womb and I see it most frequently’’
