Chairman's Message

Dr. K.K. Gopinathan


Dear Friend,

CIMAR is a sincere attempt to find an effective solution to the growing infertility.

I am extremely glad that our sincerity had been greatly appreciated, the proof being the incredible growth CIMAR met with in the past 18 years. Committed to quality and technological excellence, CIMAR has steadfastly striven to serve our patients with utmost care and dedication. In our effort to uphold values and services to provide quality patient care and safety, we have recently been conferred with the coveted NABH accreditation and became the 2nd NABH accredited IVF centre in India.

We promise that we will hold fast to our commitment and mission. At this juncture, I express my ineffable gratitude to everyone who keeps CIMAR close to his/her heart.
