Manohar Shetty

Chennai

Fifty-three years old Manohar Shetty, from Chennai, was diagnosed with Coronary Artery Disease and needed immediate attention. His son, Mahir contacted Credihealth for getting a doctor’s recommendation in Chennai for heart treatment. 

The patient was in urgent need of a cardiologist in Chennai to treat his severe illness. Undoubtedly, the patient was suffering from this critical heart condition for quite some time.

Value Added (Making Care reach everyone) :  

  • The medical expert noted down Manohar’s entire medical history and recommended the name of Chennai’s best hospital as per the patient’s location. They also conversed about the cost estimates among themselves.
  • Then, the medical experts managed to arrange for a senior cardiologist to diagnose the patient. This was arranged very quickly to help out the patient in distress.
  • After the entire treatment procedure, Mr. Shetty’s family became concerned about the payment for the treatment. The medical expert coordinated with the hospital’s manager along with Credihealth’s internal team and succeeded in receiving a good amount of discount for the full treatment procedure. 

Mr. Manohar has started receiving multi-dimensional heart care facilities with the hospital. Even, he is assured of having a complete recovery. His son is much thankful to Credihealth's team for the exceptional services and guidance provided in such a problematic moment at such a problematic phase to make heart treatment happen successfully.

Santosh Iyer

Chennai

Santosh Iyer is a resident of Chennai and is 54 years old. On Valentine's day next month, he thought of visiting Switzerland with the whole family. But his health did not allow him to do so. He developed a second thought to have Switzerland visit next year, hopefully, if he survives. The family became consoled about his health and change in behavior. They started thinking that he was counting his last days. But, his daughter (without having any second thought) appears to meet the best Cardiologist in Chennai through the medium of Credihealth.

How did Santosh Iyer receive help?

  • Santosh Iyer was given online consultation with the best Cardiologist in Chennai. He soon became comfortable with the doctor and the doctor advised him to visit the hospital for a complete checkup.

  • Santosh Iyer went through a blood test, urine checkup, stool check-up, ECG, MRI, and CT scan. 

  • The most astonishing thing that came in front of the doctors was that Santosh Iyer was making himself comfortable with the health issues and used to bear the pain of his bad health every passing day.

  • With the help of the test reports, the doctors came to know that Santosh was going through risk to his heart. He developed the chance of having a stent in his heart.

The doctors suggested Santosh receive angioplasty and produce a stent in his heart. It was astonishing for the doctors as Santosh never complained of any heart-related symptoms before. He said that he once suffered huge pain in his left body part but soon went to sleep and woke up the next afternoon when he was hungry. So it went normal for him to wake up in the afternoon and it also did not create any chance of questions for the family. Later, Santosh received angioplasty, had two stents placed in his heart artery, and is now all set to go to Switzerland for his anniversary celebration next month.

Peripheral

Chennai

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is the kind of disease that often leads to blocked arteries in other body parts and creates the symptoms of a heart attack in severe conditions. Inderpal is around 55 years old and thinks that his growing age is causing him extreme leg pain. But, once he saw a commercial saying things about bad health and bad symptoms, he became alert about the calf muscle pain in his leg. He went to the nearby local doctor who directly referred him to a cardiologist.

How did Inderpal receive help?

  • The cardiologist identified the symptoms related to Peripheral artery disease (PAD). He let Inderpal go through angioplasty which is generally or commonly done for heart arteries and the blocked arteries going to the heart.

  • However, a similar condition arose with the case of Inderpal. He developed blocked arteries in his legs which were creating heart-attack-like symptoms including chest pain, night sweating, dizziness, and extreme fatigue.

  • The Best Cardiologist in Chennai had the procedure of angioplasty done with the arteries of his leg. He inflated a balloon in the artery, pushed the fat deposits with the help of a balloon, and let the artery expand. Once the artery is expanded, the balloon is deflated. It is a small procedure that takes only a few hours to perform with the skin.

  • After the surgery, Inderpal could feel the relief in his calf muscles. He could now think of fulfilling his daily activities like watering the grass of his house garden and jumping or playing with his grandchildren.
