Testimonial for Low Cost Hip Surgery India- Albert Skiles
Albert Skiles, Fayetteville, AR
I would recommend World Med Assist to anyone. From the time I submitted my medical records to my return after low cost hip surgery in India, WMA did everything they promised and more. First of all, hip surgery is serious business, and getting it done halfway around the world make most patients extremely apprehensive. My WMA contact, Janet Kwan, was most helpful in explaining the entire process in a simple, matter-of-fact way that set me at ease. She sent me the resumes of four renowned doctors who perform hip re-surfacing and the proscribed costs and treatment schedule of each one. From much research, I choose Dr. Vijay Bose, Apollo Hospital in Chennai, India. I am now seven weeks out of surgery, crutch-free, and looking forward to returning for same procedure on my left hip. Dr. Bose is truly a miracle worker who lived up to his reputation in every way.
Let me assure my American friends: getting a WMA arranged escort from the Chennai airport to a great hotel in the middle of the night is indeed much appreciated. As well as the escort to the hospital the next day, the transfer to the hotel after a few days in the hospital, and then the escort to the airport for departure. I met folks there who regretted making all their travel, transfer and hospital arrangements themselves – they were constantly faced with breakdowns in communications, scheduling and unnecessary fees.
My travel person at WMA, Anna Hall, was also invaluable for her expertise in offering options with the flight and hotel schedules. Her efforts were made more difficult because we wanted to use our Advantage miles with American airlines for part of the trip, and we had a relatively short time for planning departure. Please take her advise and, if at all possible, get business class on the way back! Moreover, WMA for us was an excellent planning service for overseas medical care than if you tried to book everything yourself. As soon as my right hip heals, I look forward to doing it all over again with WMA.
