“Good day, I was attendant to your patient Master Enofe, I just want to give a little feedback on the care we received.I must say we have been overwhelmed by the level of care for details from your hospital!
The moment we stepped out of the airport terminal, the hospital pickup car and protocol officer was waiting for us. We were checked in almost immediately when we got to the hospital seeing as we were weary from the long-haul travel to get to India. You guys had everything on tap! I was able to be right there with the patient through it all comfortably. Plus the cafes and eateries downstairs…brilliant touch! We also had hospital recommended and organised, discounted hotel accommodation upon discharge.
We thank God his treatment went very well. The team work between specialists to make sure everything before they would go on with scheduled treatment. All in all IndiaCarez by my standards tops…and i would recommend it in a heartbeat! “
