I am very Disappointed by Dr. Goutam Khastgir. I am going through treatment since 2.5 yrs. with no result. We have gone through IUI as well as IVF. We already spend 5lakhs. But unfortunately non of the single case is handled by him. most of the time my cases are handled by Indira Roy, Anusuya Chatterjeee, anamika chakraborty and Jayita sen, none of them are doctor I believe. in this 2.5 yrs Dr. Khastgir spend only 10 min hardly. I haven't got him like a good doctor but I think he is a good administrator.

Worst experience in my life. No existence of punctuality. Staffs do not know how to behave with patients. All of them including Dr Khastagir only know how to run after money. They criticized the doctor who sent us to them and repeated all the tests which I have done from outside. And when in emergency, they did not pick up the phone. It's not treatment, but just a BUSINESS.

I have never seen such great sales man like Dr. Khastagir. He and his team actually mislead patients. He has excellent convincing power and with help of that he makes people fool. He can do anything for money. Dr.Khastagirand his BIRTH clinic is just playing with people’s sentiment. My suggestion is never consult him to treat infertility. I have seen people have lost almost everything for the kind treatment Dr. Khastgir provides. It is so expensive as well as misleading. He plays dangerous games with hormones which is life threatening too. His full team is into money making business. Here I want to name a child doctor under his team Dr. Sougata Acharya. He is also a very insensitive and crude doctor. He even doesn’t spare a newborn baby. To increase the hospital bill amount for nothing he kept new born babies into NICU. He never bothered about our sentiment. So beware of TEAM KHASTGIR.

In one word it is a trap.Dr Khastagir & his team thinks to be a god but he is having a worthless doctors team, who all are snobbish & mislead patients very often.The "counselors "with very limited knowledge thinks themselves to be a doctors.Dr Khastagir claims himself to best in everything but his behavior is beyond anyone's tolerance.His lust & greed for money will take him to deep down very soon as this kind of fraud , manipulated business can never continue for long .Also must appreciate the kind of convincing skill he has, simply like voodoo.His mean spirited , inconsiderate minds only instigates him to cheat and grab money from his patient. This is totally disgusting to think that being a doctor and that to at this age he forgot his basic oath to do some welfare for his patients, rather keeps robbing them. Nothing but a money extracting machine.. No humanity at all.Overall very Filthy experience .Never go to him..

Staff does not have any courtesy at all. They treat people like animals. They don't even recognize their own junior doctors. Specially the lady at the reception who takes calls need to be slapped as she lacks basic courtesy. If the case is complicated, you can wait for Dr GK, else never go to the filth named BIRTH.

Biography

Dr Gautam Khastgir graduated from Calcutta Medical College, with honours marks, several prizes and gold medals in the MBBS course. After graduation he worked at the Eden Hospital, Kolkata, with Professor B C Lahiri to complete his post-graduate training in Obstetrics & Gynaecology leading to DGO, DNB & MD from the Calcutta University and the National Academy of Medical Sciences, New Delhi. After that he went to the UK for further training in Gynaecology, with special emphasis on Reproductive Medicine and Surgery. During the first year of his visit to the UK, he received both the Fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (FRCS) and the Membership from the Royal College of Obstetrician and Gynaecologists (MRCOG). He was subsequently awarded the Fellowship (FRCOG) by the College for his outstanding contribution in his specialty. Dr Khastgir was awarded a prestigious Research Fellowship from the charitable trust, WellBeing, supported by late Princess Diana, to evaluate the efficacy of hormone therapy on bones in young women with premature ovarian failure. The research was conducted at the Imperial College in London under the supervision of Professor John Studd, a renowned Gynaecological Endocrinologist. This pioneering work led to several original research publications in peer-review scientific journals as well as chapters in different medical books. He was subsequently appointed as a Subspecialty Senior Registrar in Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, London, to work with Professor Christopher Sutton – a pioneer and world expert on laparoscopic laser surgery. He received the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) Traveling Fellowships and USA/UK Exchange Fellowship for further training in Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgery in the USA and Europe. He also worked extensively in different fields of Assisted Conception under the guidance of Dr Sam Abdalla - an infertility expert of international repute. His subspecialty training in Reproductive Medicine and Surgery has been accredited by the Royal College of Obstetrician and Gynaecologists, London. Dr Khastgir has lectured and published widely in the field of Infertility, HRT and Endoscopic surgery, both nationally and internationally. He has also written several books, of which one on Hysterectomy and HRT has been one of the best-sellers in the UK. His other books on Women’s Health and Pregnancy Planning are written in regional Indian languages for educating general public. He has participated in many public awareness programmes organised by NGOs and charities to make modern gynaecological treatment popular in the Eastern India. This has made him one of the most commonly seen faces in both electronic and print media propagating reproductive health awareness for women of all levels. Since returning to Kolkata in the year 2000, he has worked as a Consultant Gynaecologist in almost all leading private hospital of Kolkata. With his endeavor, Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgery has become very popular in West Bengal. He has removed the myth that such surgeries are only for the rich and celebrities. This was achieved, largely by working at charity hospitals and offering such services at a very reasonable cost. In the last 12 years, he has performed more than 10,000 Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgeries, an unique feat that has been achieved by very few doctors in the world. He is regularly conducting hands-on training programmes and live-workshops on endoscopic surgeries and assisted conception in this own institution as well as in other states and countries. His institution has been selected by Karl Storz, a renowned German company, as one of the six training centers in India. He has already trained more than 150 doctors, so that these advanced treatments are available to common people everywhere. Currently, he is the Medical Director of BIRTH (an appropriate acronym for Bengal Infertility and Reproductive Therapy Hospital) which is his brain-child, started in the year 2007. In this center, the full range of investigations and treatments for both male and female infertility are being offered at a reasonable cost under one roof. The standard of service is of international repute with the presence of doctors who trained abroad and the availability of the state-of-the-art medical equipments. The use of contemporary and innovative technology has made infertility treatment so effective. Dr Khastgir has the credit of successfully operating on 12 mothers to deliver 15 babies (including 3 sets of twins) within a day which happened on 10. 10. 10. Such an achievement occurred mainly on the request of patients, who wished to remember this remarkable date possibly with profound Astrological significance! Recently, the institution had the honour of celebrating the birth of 1,000 gorgeous babies, all following successful infertility treatment, within a short period of 5 years. More than 250 babies with their parents attended the programme in the historic Town Hall of Kolkata. Under his leadership, BIRTH offers cost effective packages for middle class people. He is really proud to serve even those from very low socio-economic strata like fishermen, auto-drivers, and hawkers who had successful assisted conception treatment in this center. These patients did not receive free treatment but arranged for loans as they had the confidence of good outcome of such modern treatment. There is a saying that nobody leaves the institute empty handed. This word of mouth publicity has drawn patients from all neighbouring states and countries. Being the busiest center of Reproductive Medicine and Surgery in the Eastern India, it is planning to expand shortly with a new hospital building to become the leading institute in India.
