Mr Jaman Lal
New Delhi, India
Mr Jaman Lal (name changed), aged 80 years, was suffering from severe knee joint issues. His doctor advised him to get a knee replacement surgery done. SInce Mr Lal wasn’t residing in India but wanted to get his treatment done here, his son contacted Credihealth to help with his father’s medical journey.
How we Helped:
The family had some queries regarding postoperative complications from knee replacement surgery which were resolved by the medical expert.
The family also had some TPA and insurance related queries. The medical expert solved the queries nd also helped with the processes at the hospital. The expert coordinated with Mr Lal’s son and the hospital staff to get all the necessary documentation and TPA approvals done before Mr Lal came for his treatment.
The medical expert provided confirmation of appointments and information on pre and post operative investigations to Mr Lal and his family.
To reduce their waiting time in the hospital, the medical expert submitted the consultation fees before Mr Lal arrived for his admission and surgery.
Mr Lal underwent his surgery and is doing better now. The family was very happy with the timely services they received from Credihealth. They continue to stay in touch with Credihealth for their medical requirements in India
