    Being pregnant and delivering a baby for the first time is a stressful and difficult. But Dr. Azhar made this journey the best in our life as a family and as a new mom, she was my angel... I was truly blessed to have her as my doctor... she is now a family friend and my daughter Arya is lucky to see the world with Dr. Azhar help ... thank to the best OB in the entire world 🌹🌷🙏😇😍

    choosing prime was the wisest decision i have made for my second delivery . Since my husband and my toddler daughter were my only bystanders, delivery care gave me too much of stress. when i shared this with the floor in charge Ms Julie, she said to my husband, ""u just hand over her to us, and come back only to take them home". I thought she was being too nice. but it was literally very true. my husband didn't need to worry about anything. the care i got was more than anything i would have ever expected. the staff was so friendly and kind that they never let me miss my mom or siblings. they all felt like a family for me. thank u so much to all the staff members and especially Ms. Julie for all the love and care i received. I really wonder how could they recruit such a service oriented team.

    Doctor Usha Kiran was my doctor and she shared her whats app number in the first consultation itself. she is a very talented doctor with a very human heart. she was there with me till the very end of my pregnancy, answering all my doubts and fears and gave me the courage to try for a normal delivery even when my first one was a C-Section. I cant thank enough for the support and strength she has given me through out my pregnancy.

    I am sharing my experience with an intention to help other women just like me, to allow themselves to receive the best care and support during their most wonderful days of womanhood. especially when their loved ones are not there with them. .

    We had baby delivery here. Overall experience is very nice.. Nurses are very cooperative and friendly in nature, Docters are very professional, hospital is very nicely maintained and clean. Only issue is lift waiting time is too much.. Highly recommended..

  • Natalie Quime, January 2019


    First of all, we came to this hospital because it was recommended by a lot of my colleagues that they have the best facilities, the doctors, staff and nurses will take care of you. I beg to differ. I won’t even talk about the waiting time. I’ll let that pass but I’m not sure if it’s alright for a doctor to tell a parent that it’s fine if her child is shooting 40 degrees fever and he’ll send us home with 3 different fever medicines whilst i have to come back the next day for a new checkup.

    Apparently his explaination is that, we are in the emergency part of the hospital and they can’t do anything else rather than admitting, taking tests and giving medicines. I asked him to run the tests that are needed but he seemed unfazed and told us to come back the next day. Thanks but no thanks, we’re never coming back to this hospital again.

  • Debsena Chakraborty, October 2018


    Very nice hospital with good facilities. I recently had a surgery there and I can highlight the following
    1. Admission can take a little time. My suggestion is go early
    2. The nurses are very good. They are professional and caring
    3. Hospital stay is very expensive so get insurance approval
    4. The food served is nice and health
    5. It takes 3 hrs or more to checkout if the hospital. They charge you in 24 hrs basis and any extra hours is charged prorate.
