Assistance with finding a doctor

Not sure which doctor to consult, or even what kind of doctor? Not to worry. Once you share your reports and your medical condition with us, our team of doctors will analyse the same and share their expert opinion on the treatment to be followed.

Remote Consultations

You will, of course, have to travel for actual treatment, but we can streamline that by giving you advice and information regardless of your current physical location.

Just give us your medical details, outlining your problem and attaching reports (x-rays, CT/MRI scan, USG, pathological reports etc) or a summary of observations based on them.

We will
  • Answer your "who", "what", where", "how" and "why" queries
  • Guide you for the consultant doctor
  • Share an all inclusive cost estimate for the recommended treatment
  • Share details about the recuperation- the time period, precautions to be taken, any special requirements pertaining to diet/physiotherapy etc.

Our International Patient Services team will help you with scheduling appointments with your doctors. You can also use the Book an appointment link to do it yourself.
