Tell Us About Yourself
I am Tah Asongwed from Canada. I am 70 years old.
What brought you to India?
I have been having urinary issues since 2009. My PSA levels are also rising consistently for the last 5 years. My PSA levels, 3 months ago were 14.55. I have undergone 14 biopsies, out of which 4 revealed positive results for Adenocarcinoma in my Prostate.
Currently, I have to wake up at night 2 - 3 times to urinate and I do feel that the bladder gets empty. Also, there is reduced libido.
How did you choose the hospital for your checkup?
When I was searching for the best oncologists in India, I found out about Vaidam on Internet. 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. The case manager also got me hospital opinions and associated quotes.
How was your visit to India arranged?
Finally, I decided to visit BLK Hospital, New Delhi. The Visa Invitation Letter was arranged by the team 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. Our 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, I was picked up from the airport and my appointment was scheduled with Dr. Amit Agarwal. He took a detailed medical history and heard me patiently. He also conducted the physical examination and advised further investigations. After the reports came back, the doctor started treatment for my Prostate cancer.
Other than this I also received cardiac valve replacement in India, which went successful.
Tell us about your overall experience of the visit.
My entire visit was great. Everything was arranged by Vaidam and went on systematically. It was hassle-free. Moreover, the treatment in the hospital went well and successful. The entire staff was co-operative and sensitive to all my requirements. Thanks to the team and the hospital for the support.
