Pushpa Kant from Fiji visited her daughter in New Zealand to spend a nice vacation. But due to her prevalent cardiac condition, her health was affected for which she desperately required a treatment. Accompanied by her daughter, she therefore, travelled to India for her heart bypass surgery.
When did you think to travel to India for your treatment?
Back in Fiji I had to undergo an angiogram because of my cardiac problem in which I found that I had multiple blockades and the doctors had even advised me for a CABG surgery. But then I went to New Zealand to spend a few days with my daughter. And there, again my health deteriorated. I started looking for treatment options but, in News Zealand I did not have insurance and the cost of the treatment was also high. Then, one of my friends told me that there is a company in India, Vaidam Health, who helps patients to seek medical treatments in the country at affordable prices. Since, I got the information from a very reliable source I did not wait any longer.
Where did you have your treatment here?
How was your treatment at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute?
It was really good. I had to undergo a repeat angiogram here and Dr. Mehrotra told me that I would require a CABG surgery because there were multiple blockades in my heart. The surgery went well. I am really happy with the patient care facility of the hospital. Dr. Mehrotra always kept a close watch over me. Because I am diabetic the stitches took time to heal so he suggested that I stay for a few more days. Everyone in the hospital was very caring and cordial.
How did Vaidam help you during your medical trip in India?
My medical trip to India has been very smooth and pleasant. I and my daughter did not feel left out or helpless for even once. Vaidam was always there. They provided us with pickup and accommodation facilities. There was no rush and I did not have to wait. Their response was really quick after I had enquired. Pankaj helped us a lot to decide which hospital or which doctor will be better for my treatment. He shared their profiles and the cost. That has helped us a lot to take the decision and finally come here.
