Mrs Radhika SIngh
New Delhi, India
Mrs Radhika SIngh (name changed) ’s 79 years old father was recently diagnosed with Blood Cancer and had a very low platelet count. He was admitted at a hospital in Delhi, but wasn’t happy with the services. He moved to a different hospital soon but the cost of the treatment was not budget friendly. An extremely distressed Mrs Singh got in touch with Credihealth to get her father admitted on immediate basis at an affordable superspeciality hospital.
How we Helped:
The medical expert pacified and provided emphatical support to Mrs Singh during this difficult time and listened to all her concerns. They were unable to find any hospital with a bed available under their insurance panel.
The availability of a bed at short notice was very scarce. The medical expert contacted a hospital in Gurgaon, spoke with the administration and arranged for a bed in the emergency ward for the initial primary care.
The expert also booked an appointment with a medical oncology specialist to take care of the medical needs of Mrs Singh’s father. The expert also provided their personal number for 24x7 assistance.
Mrs Singh’s father was soon shifted to a ward and started with his treatment. Mrs Singh was thankful to Credihealth for its proactiveness and dedication to assist wonderfully during such stressful times.
