I hope Dr. Acharya can work as long as he wants - which is forever I believe. He loves his profession as it seems to be a calling for him. I think the day he stops delivering babies will be a sad day for him. I've seen him holding a baby he recently delivered, and he is so comfortable, and just beams. He's delivering the babies of the grandchildren of his first patients and maybe great-grandchildren. He is so competent, has seen just about anything over the years, and you'd think the man never ages! I hope I never have to change doctors unless I move out of the area - which is doubtful! Hooray for did the right thing to lurer his team to Edward-Elmhurst. ...

Dr Acharya is the best

Dr. ARCHARYA is helping me with my ferility and finding the answers as to why I am not pregnant yet. Last visit he suggested getting my partner checked before running any other tests on me. I was very happy with that suggestion my previous obgyn never asked to get my partner checked I was the on deemed with the problem. So him putting in that test order for him to get checked was refreshing and I was relieved because I felt more optimistic and hopeful about getting answers to mine and my partner's fertility.
