35 years old Nitish Nowjee from Sierra Leone had been having a hard time suffering from sigmoid colon diverticulitis along with colovesical fistula since 2015. Generally, he would be symptom-free. However, there were frequent flare-ups of diverticulitis. He would frequently experience Fecaluria and Pneumaturia. Hence, he was looking for a final and permanent treatment to his problem.
How did he finalize the hospital?
When Nitish started exploring the best places for his treatment, he came to know about Vaidam. He started by posting a query regarding his problem and received a call by one of the case managers. The case manager asked for his reports and shared them with some of the best gastroenterologists in India. She also helped in getting the hospital opinion and quotes. After going through all of it, Nitish decided to visit Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, New Delhi.
Vaidam assistance in getting the medical visa
Nitish was entirely assisted in all the paperwork needed to be done before coming to India. The case manager helped in getting the Visa Invitation Letter from the hospital. Another team member helped her in the application of the visa form. After a period of 72 hours, the medical eVisa to India was received by the patient on his email id.
The appointment with the doctor
After arriving in India, he was picked up from the airport to his hotel. Soon, his appointment was booked with Dr. Deepak Govil, a senior surgical gastroenterologist in the hospital. The doctor listened to his case history with patience and ordered detailed investigations to reach an accurate diagnosis. After the reports came back, Dr. Deepak told him that no surgery is needed.
“ I was entirely assisted by Vaidam Health from visa application to fixing an appointment with the doctor and settling the bill. My journey to India was smooth due to them. "
