I took psychiatric consultation from Dr Achal Bhagat. Had a miserable experience. He asked me to visit his Clinic in Safdurjung for counselling. He put me on to a trainee who was pathetic and would just sit there humiliating me. When I shared my concern with him, he abused me and said that I need 40 more therapy sessions. He put me onto anti depressant when I didn't even need it and this medicine completely messed up my system. It's really sad that a hospital like Appolo has such doctors. We would never visit this hospital.

Treatment in India

Despite the fact that India continues to be considered as the developing country, it is more and more popular for rehabilitation and treatment. As the cradle of the ancient medical science, India offers the most modern treatment methods and the highest level of the medical care nowadays. The number of patients wishing to treat at Indian medical centers grows rapidly every year. Both the people from Asia and Africa, and from the countries with developed healthcare system are among them, i.e. Western Europe and USA. The level of the medical services quality in India is under the permanent control of the public authorities, i.e. Ministry of Healthcare, Medical Tourism Council and Federation for Healthcare. Plenty of Indian medical centers are accredited by international organizations, such as JCI and ISO.

Indian medical centers

In India only:

  • Ayurveda medical methods
  • Treatment quality state control
  • High level of Transplantology development
 
Efficiency of the cardiologic surgeries are over 90%.
 
Transplantation of organs is 80% cheaper than in other countries.

Peculiarities of Indian medicine

Indian medicine has several features highlighting it among the medicine of the other countries:

High level of professionals. India is a country with the high population density and employment is one of the main problems. Such a situation created the severe competitiveness among the medical staff. The contest for the vacancy position of the doctor is up to 50 persons per a job place in some regions of the country. The most talented experts work as the doctors in India respectively, possessing the qualitative education at European or US medical universities as a rule.

Comprehensive approach to the treatment. The medicine of modern India assembled the most progressive treatment methods of the western medicine; nevertheless, it continues to use the ancient Ayurveda practices respected by World Healthcare Organization as the independent type of medicine.

State control. Healthcare is one of priority fields in India by the permanent support of the country. Indian legislation envisages the strict punishment for the medical mistakes made during the treatment process.

These peculiarities of Indian medicine make it attractive and competitive at the world market of the medical services.

How does the foreign patient get the treatment in India?

You should ask the adviser of Bookimed company for assistance in organizing the treatment in India. All the anamneses and tests results if available should be provided to the adviser. The company experts will contact the leading Indian medical centers and transfer the required data on the patient’s condition. Indian doctors will accept the most appropriate treatment options at the conference, which results are to be stated in the treatment programs, including the prices for the services of the medical centers. Bookimed advisers provide the received treatment programs to the patient for selection. The visa is required to enter India, which is opened for 6 months. This is a usual tourist visa. Medical visa is required, when the treatment is held at some Ayurveda medical centers. It requires some medical documents to be submitted to the embassy.

Russian speaking consultants assist the patients during the treatment in India from the airport pick-up up to the treatment finalization.

Mainstreams of the treatment in India

Indian medical centers provide the medical services in all the medical fields. However, the following services are the most popular among the foreign patients:

  • Cardiology
  • Cardiologic surgery
  • Plastic surgery
  • Esthetic medicine
  • Urology
  • Andrology
  • Dentistry
  • Maxillofacial surgery
  • Gynecology
  • Reproductive medicine
  • Ayurveda medicine
  • Transplantology

Visa issues and accommodation during the treatment in India

The following documents are to be submitted to the Embassy of India in order to issue the 6-months tourist visa:

  • Visa application (samples are available at the official website of the embassy)
  • Copies of two first pages of the internal passport
  • Passport for international trips
  • One passport size photo

The fee of about 40 USD is to be paid while submitting the documents. As a rule, the visa is issued on the next day (it may be issued on the same day if required).

The following additional documents should be submitted if the medical visa is required:

  • Extract from anamneses (English interlinear translation)
  • Invitation from Indian medical center (in English)

People of India have a good command of English; hence, there are no problems in the conversation for the people with English skills.

Prices for hotels in India are one of the lowest in the world. The room at 2-star hotel can be available for 10 USD per night, 3-star hotel – 70 USD, 5-star hotel – 200 USD. The cheaper accommodation options, such as rooms and hostels, are available at Indian railway station.

We advise to select the room with air conditioning to be able to close the windows tightly against the insects, as they might transfer malaria in some regions of India. It is also important to note that India has the power outages very often despite the luxurious hotels.

The lunch at the usual café will cost 4 USD per person. The lunch of three courses at mid-class restaurant will cost about 16 USD per two persons. Local dishes as a rule are significantly cheaper than European, albeit both them are presented in Indian restaurants.

Advantages of treatment in India

Disadvantages of treatment in India

  • High professional level of the doctors
  • Low costs for treatment
  • Comprehensive approach to treatment
  • Wide range of transplantation opportunities
  • Some of the medical centers are not accredited
  • Low infrastructure level
  • Significant cultural differences

Cost for treatment in India

The people of India and the foreign patients can address both private and public medical centers, while the public medical centers provide the medical care free-of-charge. However, their level of the medical care is very low and it is not recommended to treat there. The prices for medical services at the private medical centers of India are one of the lowest in the world. The prices for certain surgeries are sometimes 70-90% lower than the similar surgeries in USA or Western Europe.

Bookimed Company watches the service quality and prices range for the medical care for its patients precisely. Our experts will revise the bill free-of-charge and will check the price justification for all the medical procedures stated, having received the treatment programs from the Indian medical centers.

Indian medical centers

The following famous medical centers should be highlighted among various hospitals of India:

Manipal Hospital is one of the leading multidisciplinary medical centers, providing the medical care for the foreign patients. It operates in six states of India, as well as abroad. It consists of 15 hospitals and 3 outpatient hospitals.

Medanta is the largest amalgamation of the medical universities and academies in India, located in the city of Gurgaon, Haryana, India. It provides the R&D activity in addition to all kinds of the medical services.

Apollo Hospital is the largest medical chain of Southern Asia. It includes over 50 medical centers, 7 of which are accredited by JCI. It operates in 9 countries of the world.

Feedback

"I have recently noticed my husband holding his arm near the heart and having the pant while going upstairs. Then I have insisted on visiting the doctor. However, no one told anything informative. Then my husband and I decided to have a vacation in India. We decided to carry out the diagnostics at one of Indian medical centers. It came out my husband had almost complete blockage of the main coronary vessel. The urgent surgery was appointed and held by robotic surgical system. My husband was discharged in five days with satisfactory indicators of health condition. I am grateful for the doctors of India, who saved my husband’s life."

The patient was treated of

I was diagnosed with hemophthalmos and urgently needed an operation vitrectomy. I could not find doctor who could make this operation. I turned to the internet for help and found Bookimed. They answered me quickly, my doctor was coordinator Ivan Koval. After very short time I received all necessary information and program of treatment. I was very lucky with coordinator, he is a professional, friendly, diligent and responsible doctor. I came on tourist visa to Fortis clinic which is located in India, New Delhi. The Fortis clinic I immediately did not like. Interpreters are not serious, medical personnel seemed to me not very responsible, laws changed, the coordination of the clinic was awful. After examination I was refused to do surgery on a tourist visa, it was necessary to get medical visa which needed additional 15 days and a lot of money as Fortis doctors told me, so I was very nervous. All the time my doctor was the coordinator for communication with clinic, he called me every 10 min to ask how are you, how are you feeling, talking to the medical staff the clinic, he was very worried too. At the same day Ivan Koval found another clinic in Bangalore and Dr. Priya who brought me from Delhi to Bangalore that night. And then I had two good responsible doctors, Dr. Priya and Dr. Koval, who found the best surgeons for me. Thanks a lot for that!!! In Bangalore I was very warmly welcomed by the staff of the hospital and taken to Manipal where I waited for good, responsive, cute and beautiful hospital personnel . They carefully examined me and my eyes, appointed the time of surgeryi. At day of operation I had no doubt that my operation will be great. Otherwise could not be. My surgical doctors were the most experienced, responsible, sensitive and highly qualified doctors in the world. Operation went very easily and well, I did not feel much pain after surgery. I was happy when the next day doctors removed the blindfold, my eyes began to see as before)) This was my second birth. even tears of joy rolled down my face. My doctors were Dr. Ajanta Chakravarty and Dr. Nitin S. Shetty. I express my heartfelt gratitude to my favorite doctors and the entire staff of Manipal for perfect and noble work that is so important to people. I was very pleased to feel a lot of attention, sympathy and understanding! A low bow to you for the tremendous, competent force in saving our lives!

The patient was treated of viral hepatitis c

After a blood transfusion in Kherson I was diagnosed with hepatitis C. Analysis showed a viral load of 88,000, there was a heaviness in the liver. When the doctor in infectious diseases hospital explained perspectives - I was horrified. Effective antiviral drugs are not registered, and the order in Europe need a long time to come and is expensive for hepatitis. Familiar doctor advised treatment in India, where these drugs are much cheaper, as well as comprehensive tests. I came to the Manipal clinic and paid less than $ 2,000 for all, bought there Hepcinat (Indian version of sofosbuvir). The liver does not hurt, now I wait for test results.

The patient underwent artificial insemination ivf

Me and my husband wanted to have a second child. We went through IVF in Russia, but there was no good results. Then we started to look for a profitable option abroad and decided to go to India, at the time of vacation. The Manipal doctors did their work for ridiculous money and a short time. Already a year has passed after my return from India, so I share impressions while the baby is sleeping. I was afraid of the terrible service and living conditions, but staying at Manipal proved to be like real Europe.

India is staring at a major epidemic of cardiovascular diseases. The brain drain of trained medical doctors to USA, UK and Australia points to a steep spike in the morbidities and mortalities in near future. In the glimmer, Dr. Naresh Trehan/his team members presents a rare example of dedication to patient care over personal career.

After a successful career and clinical practice at the prestigious New York University Medical Center(NYUMC) Manhattan USA for two decades, he headed home to serve the men and women of his motherland leaving behind all the glitterati and comforts of the New York City and the USA. Dr. Trehan has since saved thousands of lives and families. After his highly successful establishment of cardiovascular institute at another Hospital in the middle of New Delhi, he has recently established a landmark multi-specialty hospital Medanta under the auspices of an integrated health care facility named MediCity in Gurgaon, India. MediCity spreading across 43 acres of land has been designed after world renowned Mayo Medical School and Johns Hopkins Hospital in the USA.

Being a naturalized citizen, seven days-soccer dad and a demanding research professor job and Scientist job in the USA, I had my nerves wrecking when I heard that my father needed a very urgent cardiovascular care at an extremely short notice. I do not know how I chose to write Dr. Trehan’s office in India immediately in extreme desperation. As Mr. Jugal Sharma, a very important team member a personal manager to Dr. Trehan replied me immediately, all I remember that I was barely stammering sitting 8000 miles away in another continent with opposite orientation to the sun. Within 24 hrs. I was able to take my dad directly to the living legend Dr. Trehan who I knew will save my father and we will live together again for many more springs.

In the following days, I landed in New Delhi and my father who presented numerous layers of cardiovascular problems each deadlier than others,few days back has had surgeries and treatments in the awe inspiring Medanta hospital under the personal supervision of Dr. Trehan/team members. Now I believe very soon my father will speak with the same life and confidence that has been a hallmark of him and I am back at my work desk in the USA. I was still awestruck recollecting how the past week unfolded while driving to my work when the radio jockey played the “Pilgrims” by Enya over the radio. I could not be blessed more. Dr. Trehan, you did it again. Dr. Trehan, you always win but how great of you that you let you patients win so much more! It is important to mention here that Mr. Jugal Sharma was very soft spoken, cordial approachable, ready to help at any circumstances. I am also very much indebted to Mr. Sharma.

Medanta, what an impressive modern architecture and outstanding clinical facility and what an immaculate and a humane place for human healing you are!. No one should fall sick but when that indeed has to happen, let us pray that the patient has one blessing- Dr. Trehan or his clones! Dr. Trehan, Thank you again!
