Sravani
I recommend the doctor

We met Dr. Pramod Krishnappa in NU Hospital Rajaji nagar Bangalore for azoospermia issue. He went through our reports and suggested us to go with Pesa. We were not very confident that it would be successful based on the reports however Dr. Pramod Sir gave us the confidence to try our lucky once and also made my husband feel positive and gave him confidence. He performed Pesa and to our surprise we could find few sperms which would be used for my ivf cycle. He gave us the lost hope. We are very happy and would recommend Dr. Pramod Krishnappa as he is expert in Andrology field and a very down to earth person.
