Tell us about yourself.
I am Sharesse and I am from the United States.
What brought you to India?
I wanted to have a baby. I was advised to receive an IVF treatment for the same. Since the treatment is expensive in the US, I decided to come to India.
How did the decided the place of the treatment and chose the hospital?
While I was browsing the internet to look out for the best IVF specialists in India, the cost involved and other aspects; I came across the website of Vaidam Health and came to know that they facilitate international patients for treatment in India. I posted my query on their website and received a call back shortly by one of their case managers. The case manager took my reports and shared it with some of the topmost IVF hospitals in India to get the best opinions and associated quotes. She also provided me some doctor profiles to help me select one of them for my treatment. She also discussed with me several other details like cost, place of accommodation, airport pickup, etc.
How was your process of visa application?
I decided to come to the Southend Infertility Hospital, Gurgaon by considering all the aspects of my treatment. After reading the profile of Dr. Sonia Malik, I wanted to have my treatment by her. The entire process was assisted by the Vaidam team. Everything from getting the Visa Invitation Letter from the hospital and the visa application was done by the team. I provided them the required information and the documents and received the visa within 2-3 days on my email. The entire process was very smooth.
Describe your experience at the hospital.
My appointment was scheduled with Dr. Sonia Malik after I reached India on 30th January. During the appointment, the doctor listened to me very patiently while I explained my story to him from the beginning. She conducted a physical examination and also ordered a few more investigations. After the reports came back, the doctor confirmed that I would need an IVF treatment. Soon an IVF session was done. Before my discharge, the team at the hospital made sure that I was recovering well.

My experience was entirely smooth and well-coordinated. I was picked up from the airport and dropped back. My accommodation was arranged by the Vaidam team. Other than that, everything that I needed and all my queries were well answered. I am absolutely satisfied with my visit to India
