45-years-old Mr. Robert traveled all the way to India from Kenya for hair transplant at the best hair transplant clinic in India.
Tell us about yourself?
I am 45 years old. I have an automobile business in Nairobi, Kenya
What treatment did you undergo?
I went to India for hair transplant.
How did you select the hospital and the doctor?
I submitted my request for the best hair transplant surgeon in India. Patient relationship manager from Vaidam contacted me. I shared a picture of the portion where the hair was thin and needed transplant. Vaidam shared a comprehensive treatment plan with quotes and assessment from multiple doctors and hospitals. I chose to go with BLK Hospital in New Delhi.
How was your experience in getting the Visa?
I received the invite for Visa through Vaidam. Getting a visa from the Indian high commission wasn't difficult
How did you decide the place of stay?
I was presented with options to stay. I could also check the places on the internet to be sure about the facilities. There were many good options within walking distance from the hospital.
What about Airport pickup?
There was some miscommunication because of which I missed the person from Vaidam who had come to pick me. I took a cab to reach to the hotel. I advise you to share the flight details and your picture with your host before flying.
Tell us about your experience with the doctor and hospital.
The hospital was very professional. Proper tests were conducted, I was briefed about the treatment and its impact. Since it was hair transplant my total stay in the hospital was for one day.
How many days did you stay in the hospital?
What did you do after the stay?
I had a week before my return flight to Kenya. In that period I had to see the doctor a couple of times. Otherwise, I was free. The team at Vaidam kept in touch during the entire duration. I was advised an itenerary for New Delhi sightseeing, one day trip to the beautiful Taj Mahal and shopping trip. I benefitted from Vaidam guys local expertise in choosing the mode or time of travel. Saved money. I also got dental treatment done at a fraction of what it would cost me in Nairobi.
Any suggestion to people traveling to India for treatment?
- Having a friendly host makes your treatment experience was wonderful
