Scared of Having Cancer, Vincent Kariuki from Kenya was Pacified to Know Otherwise.


37 years old Vincent Kariuki started having nasal congestion and headache 2 years ago. Little did he know that these symptoms may be due to cancerous growth. When these symptoms did not go away with regular medication regime. He was advised to get a radiological examination. The reports revealed that he had a muscle lump at the skull base and under the tongue. Also, the mediastinal nodes were swollen. Later, he had two biopsies which could not reveal much about these lumps. Vincent was worried and suspected of having cancer. This was when he decided to come to India and get rid of his problem once and for all.

Choice of doctor and getting the quote


The moment when Vincent Kariuki came you know about Vaidam Health, he posted a query on their website. Soon after, he received a phone call by one of the case managers, Heena Mehta. The case manager took his reports and shared them with some of the best oncologists in India.

After receiving a list of opinions and quotes, he decided to consult Dr. Chandragouda Dodagoudar at BLK hospital, New Delhi. This led to the initiation of his process to visit India.


Getting a medical eVisa to India


Vincent was thoroughly assisted by Vaidam in getting a medical visa to India. To begin with, he needed a Visa Invitation Letter from the hospital to apply for a visa, which was arranged by the case manager. The team also helped him in the application of visa and getting a “fit to fly” certificate. The accommodation was also arranged near the hospital as per his requirements for a comfortable stay. After the completion of all the paperwork, he finally arrived in India on 14th February.


Vincent’s experience in India


The patient was received by a team member from the airport and dropped to the hotel. His appointment was booked with the doctor. The doctor had a detailed conversation with the patient and took a medical history asking about any past medical illness or related family history. This was followed by a clinical examination after which he was sent for further investigations. To his surprise, the reports came negative for any cancerous lesion. This was good news. Some other tests suggested that he need rheumatological consultation. Therefore, he was referred to Dr. Vishal Kaura, a senior rheumatologist at BLK. After making a diagnosis, he prescribed the patient, medication regime.


The feedback


“I did not have any problem while coming to India and during my treatment here. An operation team executive was there with me most of the time. The case manager was also in touch. The doctors were keen and observant. They took care of the minute details before coming to any conclusion. I am absolutely satisfied.”
