Maina Daniel from Kenya experienced occasional palpitations. He didn't know that those palpitations would turn out to be a major cardiac problem. But, now after his successful treatment in India, Daniel is sure that he will not be suffering from his congenital heart condition anymore.
What cardiac problem were you suffering from?
I did not know of my medical condition until two weeks prior to my trip to India. There were occasional palpitations but I didn't know the situation was so severe. There were no other major symptoms through which I could know. Doctors in Kenya told me that I suffered from atrial septal defect (ASD), a hole in the heart. The atria didn’t use to function properly because of which I had irregular heartbeats, palpitations sometimes. When I came to know about it I got really scared.
Where did you have your treatment in India?
How was your treatment at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute?
The treatment went really well. Dr. Iyer suggested that I should undergo an ASD closure surgery to which I complied. Now, after the surgery I am completely fine. I recovered fast. Dr. Iyer was helpful and cooperative. He is an excellent surgeon. The patient care facility in the hospital was very good. I loved it.
When did you come across Vaidam Health?
I came to know about Vaidam Health through the internet. I went through their website and saw the various profiles of the doctors and the hospitals. It was informative. I found Vaidam to be reliable and had sent a query.
How did Vaidam Health help you?
Vaidam recommended a list of the best cardiologists and cardiac hospitals in India. I didn't even have to wait for long as they were prompt in getting back to me. Dr. Tamanna had helped me to choose the right hospital for my treatment. After me and my sister arrived in India, Vaidam Health has been there with us throughout. Their patient manager accompanied us to the hospital during our treatments, introduced us to the doctors and got the reports of the tests that were to be done. They also took us to a few hotels and provided us with an accommodation. The patient manager even took my sister to a few shopping destinations in the city. Because of Vaidam Health I had a very pleasant medical trip to India.
