She conducts continuous medical education (CME) programs, and workshops regularly for the dissemination of the latest medical knowledge and skills. She is frequently invited as a guest speaker at various prestigious forums. She is innovative and deeply spiritual.

Dr. Modi is well adept at using the most advanced medical methods and techniques for diagnosis and treatment and her approach, as well as success rate, is well appreciated by patients, referring doctors and peers unequivocally. She simplifies the most complicated diagnoses for a clear and transparent understanding of patients.
Dr. Modi’s IVF success rate is higher than average as she makes use of sophisticated techniques like IMSI, blastocyst culture, gamete & embryo vitrification if indicated.
Above all, she believes in basics first and a stepwise graduated approach towards more sophisticated and demanding techniques. According to her, as opposed to recommending complex IVF processes straightaway, most infertility incidences can be corrected by simpler interventions like proper reproductive counseling, adopting a corrective lifestyle (with or without medication), getting the endocrine balance right, ovarian stimulation with the right timing the fertilization and a structured approach to intrauterine insemination (IUI). She has a history of successfully treating many repeat IVF failure cases through the above simpler interventions in keeping with her guiding philosophies of trust, transparency, ethical practice, empathy, and consideration for the psycho-social well-being of the patient.
She believes that reproductive endocrinology (the science of reproductive hormones) and fertility interventions are far more interlinked than commonly believed and understanding exact underlying endocrine factors is very important for proper diagnosis, increasing the success rate of simpler interventions and alleviating the need for more demanding interventions. She has considerable experience in the management of complex reproductive endocrine disorders and their implications for fertility.
