Traveling to a foreign country for an advanced treatment or surgery is a major decision. And to make an informed decision, patients need need answers to several questions like,
- Is my diagnosis right ? Do I really need surgery ?
- Are there any other treatment options ?
- Who are the specialists to consult ? How to choose the right one?
- Which hospital should I go to ? How can I reach them ?
- Do I have to wait for a long time? Who will look after my appointments?
- What about the follow-up care once I return back home?
- What does the cost of surgery or treatment truly include or exclude?
Not finding the right answers to such questions is one of the major challenges of such patients.
