A dedicated centre

Orchid Fertility Clinic, which is a Joint Commission International (JCI) and College of American Pathologist (CAP) accredited fertility clinic, opened its doors for the first time in 2016 at Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC). The dedicated team has been carefully selected and has extensive and unparalleled knowledge in the field of reproductive medicine. They cater to all the needs of the patients in a compassionate and holistic manner. Along with catering to patients locally, the clinic also provides dedicated consultations for all international clients. The online consultations can be arranged along with the treatment plan before the patients arrive in Dubai.

At Orchid Fertility Clinic, the motive is not just treatment, but also to support the patients in all possible ways. The highly qualified and multi-disciplinary team at Orchid Fertility Clinic looks into the contributing factors along with educating each couple trying to conceive on the consequences of lifestyle disorders and diseases. Dr Arpan, CEO at Waha Health, said: “Our doctors are passionate about their profession of helping people grow their family. Our vision is to provide couples seeking fertility with assistance, a fresh approach with improvement in their quality of life and a better chance of having healthy babies born into healthy families. We are preferred by patients not only in the UAE, but also from many other countries as we provide them with multiple treatment options that are tailor-made to suit their conditions.”

"We received our NIPT test result and were beyond happy with the outcome. I am so happy and satisfied with every step we took and decision we made as advised by the clinic. We will forever be grateful to you. We wish Orchid Fertility Clinic more success and good luck." — A patient

Dr Partha Sarathi Das, deputy medical director, consultant reproductive endocrinology and fertility, Orchid Fertility Clinic, said: “The definition of a successful fertility clinic is not measured by financial gains, but from the satisfaction we get when our patients are happy. That is what success means to us at Orchid. We make our patients feel we are with them at every stage of decision making — from educating to encouraging them throughout the treatment. They feel comfortable sharing their problems, anxieties and dreams with us, and I strongly believe it is because of the care and dedication we share with our patients.” Coping with infertility is not easy and Orchid Fertility Clinic understands that emotion. The accredited facility has been awarded for providing the best patient experience during the fertility treatment. Individual requirement-based therapies and support groups at the clinic also provide couples the confidence and support they require throughout the journey. In addition to this, Orchid Fertility Clinic has also introduced the concept of ‘Fertility Journey and Wellness’, wherein it encourages couples to come in for an informal discussion with one of their fertility specialists for any concerns about reproductive health, or to discuss any potential options. Even if the couple is not ready to embark on the fertility treatment, being aware of their choices can be reassuring. So, if you are planning to start a family, a fertility check can help you make an informed decision about the timing and the choices you may need to turn the dream into a reality.
