About Us

Medical tourism is one of the fastest-growing industries today. Rapidly increasing costs of medical procedures and decreasing insurance coverage and private health care options for many people has prompted millions to travel abroad to receive medical care. Not only are patients drawn to medical tourism because of more affordable treatment costs, but also at times because of the availability of cutting-edge treatments that are not yet approved or widely available in one's home country. Furthermore, the quality of service at many world-class hospitals and clinics abroad is simply better than what many of us can find at home -- particularly with respect to the "customer service" orientation of medical facilities catering to foreigners.
