Traveling to an alien country for medical help is a worrying prospect. There are too many unknowns. One might ask, “Am I getting the right treatment by the right specialists at the right price?” Getting the right kind of information while sitting so far away is difficult.
Most medical tourism services are run by people who have little to do with medicine. These are essentially individuals who claim to represent certain markets or groups and who in turn negotiate individually with either doctors or hospitals. This leads to non-standardization in terms of response, pricing as well as quality of treatment.
Promise of Cure is the first-of-its-kind initiative to provide a one-on-one connect between the travelling patient and the treating doctor. Our hand-picked team of senior consultants are some of the best names in the country and they interact directly with the patients through our platform. The patient gets holistic attention as our panel of specialists are connected to each other and together take part in discussions regarding the patient’s case.
Our focal point is the interaction between the patient and the doctor and we have crafted all our services around it. We therefore offer a complete gamut of services ranging from fixing doctor appointments, making travel arrangements, local travel support, local accommodation and assistance with language interpreters, foreign exchange services to local sightseeing tours.
Mr. Abdulah from Oman wanted to travel to India for a spine surgery. He had many questions regarding the medical treatment, travelling with his medical condition, pre and post-surgical services and most importantly, about the doctors who would treat him. We organized a direct video conference with our Specialist and all his questions were answered with satisfaction. The rest is history as he is now completely cured and is also in the process of getting his family members treated with us.
Ms. Pauline from Kenya asked for a quote for the treatment of her mother. Promise of Cure approached both the hospital and the doctor and got 2 different quotes. The hospital was charging 3 times more than the doctor. We got the quote corrected, signed up for only the absolutely required medical care needed for Pauline’s mother and hence, saved 2/3rd of what Pauline would have otherwise spent.
Mr. Albattashi from Oman contacted a doctor in India and was recommended to undergo angioplasty. He came with a grant from his company which would sponsor his Angioplasty. Promise of Cure took him to a specialist for a second opinion who told him that he doesn’t need angioplasty and advised him the cure without involving any surgery. Now he is healthy and happy.
Jemimah came to India for 8 months for her mother’s treatment and had a nightmarish experience. She didn’t know her way around the city so she took up an accommodation far away from the hospital. She was also unaware of quality medical doctors and relied on people's recommendations. As a result, she ended up spending huge amounts of money without any results to show for it. When it was time for her to return for a follow-up, she contacted Promise of Cure. We helped her with all her requirements and resultantly, not only did she save a considerable amount of money, she also felt more relieved and at ease.
Lyndah from Kenya was travelling to India for treatment. We organized everything for her – right from helping her with hospital paperwork to taking care of other needs during her treatment and post discharge period. We made Lyndah feel comfortable and cared for – nothing short of home. Lyndah went back happy and satisfied and she has already sent three of her relatives to us for treatment.
