Tell Us About Yourself
I am Suhad Hasan from Iraq. I am 46 years old.
What brought you to India?
I was diagnosed with lung cancer since 2018. Also, 3 months before I contacted Vaidam, I underwent a lung biopsy, which revealed that I also have pleural effusion in the lungs. I was having a continuous repeated cough and difficulty in breathing for a long time. I was also prescribed Tarveca but did not get any relief. I wanted to get the right treatment for my condition.
How did you choose the hospital for your checkup?
While I was looking for some of the best oncology hospitals in India, somebody told me about Vaidam Health. I posted a query on their website and received a call back from one of their case managers. She helped me with the list of topmost doctors and their profiles. She also got me a few hospital opinions and associated quotes.
How was your visit to India arranged?
After I decided to visit the Dharamshila Narayana Super Specialty Hospital, New Delhi. the case manager helped me to get the Visa Invitation Letter from the hospital. The visa application process was also done by the Vaidam team. I only had to give my information. Other than this, the accommodation was also arranged by the team as per my preferences. My pickup and drop off from the airport was also arranged by team members. They facilitated my trip very smoothly.
What was your experience at the hospital?
After I arrived in India on 5th February 2019, I was picked up from the airport and my appointment was scheduled with Dr. Deni Gupta. He took a detailed medical history and heard me patiently. He conducted the physical examination advised further investigations. After the reports came back, the doctor told me that I need chemotherapy. A session of chemotherapy was conducted as scheduled and I was admitted in the hospital for some days.
