Testimonial for Radiofrequency Ablation India – Rand Loftness
Rand Loftness, Shelton, WA
I was born with a heart condition called Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which basically is an electrical malfunction between the two chambers of my heart.
As I got older, the episodes became more frequent, and the symptoms got in the way of everything I wanted to do.
I went to a cardiologist last year, who put me on beta blockers.
The side effects- mostly depression- were worse than the symptoms, so I stopped taking them.
Then the symptoms got way worse.
I couldn’t even ride my bike the quarter mile to my mailbox without getting short of breath, dizzy and light headed.
I was out of options trying to live with the syndrome.
My capacity was so reduced, I couldn’t live life.
I had to do something.
I learned that I needed Cardio Radio Frequency Ablation, a procedure that interrupts the abnormal electrical pathway.
I went to the University of Washington and learned the ablation would cost $70,000.
As a self-employed contractor, I’d made the choice a long time ago not to pay for health insurance, and just self-fund my medical expenses.
I could afford the $70,000, but it seemed ridiculous.
I got on the internet, checked out several sites, and filled out some on-line inquiries.
I found I could get the procedure done in Thailand for $12,000 to $18,000.
While I was thinking seriously about going there, WorldMed Assist responded to my e-mail, and suggested I hold tight for a few days while they researched other options.
They got back to me, as promised,
with quotes from two hospitals in India.
I chose Apollo Hospital in Delhi, for $4500.
Now we’re talking!
In the end, it actually only cost $3300.
My only hesitation was sitting that long on an airplane, but for that kind of savings, I was ready to pack my bags.
I wasn’t at all concerned about being treated in India.
I had a friend, Bill, who wanted to go there on vacation, so I said, “Let’s go!”
WorldMed Assist made everything so easy; all I had to do was get to the airport.
The staff was very clear, encouraging and enthusiastic.
I was completely at ease with my decision.
I was met at the Delhi airport and driven to the hospital.
Everything was smooth and simple.
I was released three days later and then Bill and I started touring around.
I worked around two follow-up appointments: one at 2 days, another at two weeks.
In the meantime, we went all around Northern India, and participated in a protest against the atrocities in Nepal at the Dalai Lama’s home.
We went to the Taj Majal, which was overwhelming.
The weather was great.
I couldn’t have done any of these things prior to my heart treatment.
This was an entirely positive experience.
I’ve had no problems since the procedure, and now I can get back to climbing, skiing, regular exercise, and living my life.
