Tell Us About Yourself
I am Haruna from Nigeria. I am 68 years old.
What brought you to India?
I had been battling with prostate cancer for several years. Since I wanted to root out my problem once and for all, I decided to visit India as there are limited resources of treatment in Nigeria. I also wanted to consult a spine surgeon for my back related issues.
How did you choose the hospital and the doctor?
While searching on the internet for the best oncologists in India, we found out about Vaidam Health, which would assist us in everything related to the treatment. I posted a query and received a call shortly after that. I was asked to share my reports to get the hospital opinion. my case manager also suggested me the same, I decided to get the surgery done by him at Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon.
How did you get the visa?
This process was also made easier by the Vaidam team. They helped me getting the Visa Invitation Letter from the hospital. After getting it, I applied for the visa and received it within a week.
Tell us about your experience after reaching India.
After my arrival in India, a person from Vaidam team was waiting outside the airport to pick me up and drop at my hotel. After getting some rest and freshen up, I had my appointment fixed with Dr. Subodh Chandra Pande. During the appointment, the doctor patiently heard my entire story from the beginning and saw my reports. He then ordered some routine investigations and cardiology tests. After getting the reports, he confirmed and explained to me the treatment. I was admitted to the hospital for nearly 7 days.
How did you arrange your stay at the hotel?
My hotel stay was also arranged by Vaidam. It was booked on the basis of my closest proximity to the hotel, ease of commuting and also on my other preferences.
