What People Say About Us- Patient Experience


“My problem was a hernia on my abdomen which rally started to bother me for last three years and was getting worse each day. I saw a TV program in the US that dealt with medical tourism, and Indian hospitals were highly spoken of in that segment. I thought that probably some day I might need to go to one. I had never bought medical insurance because it’s extremely expensive in the US. But I hardly knew anything about India. In Houston where I live, there are large numbers of Indian doctors. I contacted some of them and asked them about Indian hospitals, and everyone said that the level of medical practice in India was as good as in the United States. I wrote to a few hospitals, but did not get a response,

I had so many questions to ask Then I searched online and found SafeMedTrip.com “I have had an excellent time here. Everybody has been extremely helpful. As far as food is concerned, it’s different from the US, but SafeMedTrip spoke to hospital staff who went out of their way to try to get things I like to eat. I find the doctors here to be highly professional. And the nurses, what can I say? They have done a great job! Everyone from the food service personnel to the housekeeping staff are always ready to serve. The facilities are excellent. I had a decent room for myself, and my wife was able to stay with me quite comfortably.

I sincerely appreciate your efforts, and let me say that SafeMeTrip.com will be my first choice if I ever again need surgical or any other sophisticated medical care outside the United States or if any of my friends needed a similar service. All the best

Warm Regards –
