After Her Cancer Treatment in Iraq, Shathaa Hamdan Received a Positive Medical Evaluation in India

Hailing from Iraq, Shathaa Hamdan had her breast cancer treatment in her home country. Though the treatment went well, just to be sure she wanted to go for a further medical evaluation and arrived in India.



“I underwent a surgery for breast cancer followed by chemotherapy sessions in Iraq. But still I wanted to go for an evaluation elsewhere so that I get to know whether I have any risks or side effects or if the cancer is recurrent or not”, said Hamdan.


Shathaa along with her husband searched for treatment options in the internet.  “I looked up in the internet about other hospitals and medical facilities and that’s how I got to know about Vaidam Health. After submitting my query I got a call from their patient manager. I was in touch with her for at least four months”, said she.


Accompanied by her husband, Hamdan arrived in India and was escorted to Dharamshila Cancer Hospital and Research Centre where she received her medical evaluation from Dr. Deni Gupta. “The process of evaluation was very organized and systematic. Dr. Gupta assisted me to understand my condition post cancer treatment, the precautions I should take and the guidelines I should follow to maintain my health. The hospital is excellent. It provides you with everything that you need for cancer treatment. After my visit to the hospital I felt assured and I am very happy that reports came out clean”, she smiled.


On commenting about the services provided by Vaidam, she said, “The assistance of Vaidam is commendable. I cannot imagine my medical trip to be so hassle free. My case manager has been really helpful in guiding me throughout. She even filled my visa application form. By the time I landed in the country, airport pickup and an accommodation was already arranged for me. Though in this case I must suggest that, you, as a patient should be vocal about your accommodation preferences. All in all, it has been a very good experience to receive a medical evaluation through Vaidam’s help. I wish the whole team good luck!”
