Urogynecological problems – Your First Consult
Urogynecological problems unlike others are not life threatening. However, they greatly affect the quality of life in women. Women typically take five years to see a doctor after they are affected by these issues. This is because of the sensitive nature of the topic and they feel greatly embarrassed to open up in front of others.

At GAURI, we make sure that we understand the patient and strive to connect with them at an emotional level. It is very important for the patient and the physician to be on the same page. For this, Quality of life questionnnaire’s are employed. These questionnaire’s can be either filled up when the patient arrives at the clinic or be downloaded from the website and brought along.

A detailed and thorough history of the problem is sought. A physical examination is often times necessary and a simple urine dip may be required at the first visit.

The problem is identified and a detailed plan is worked out. Investigations necessary to confirm the preliminary diagnosis are suggested and if possible may be carried out at the same time.

Also a suggestion for the necessary treatment is made with a guided tour of the facilities available.
