Tired of waiting for your turn to see a doctor in an OPD or even the never ending search for the right doctor? MediAngels.com, an e-super specialty medical consultation platform will now bring the super specialist to the patient's living room.
Literally so, as the world's top 350 super specialists from 20 countries and 90 super specialised medical disciplines come together on the MediAngels' e-healthcare platform for a fee ranging from Rs 250 to Rs 5,000.
Started by two super-specialists themselves, Dr Arbinder Singal and Dr DebrajShome, MediAngels provides comprehensive super-specialty services such as consultations, blood tests and electronic medical records to patients from the comfort of their homes and at a time convenient to them.
MediAngels started as an outcome of Dr DebrajShome and Dr Arbinder Singal's personal experiences in complicated health situations. While Dr Shome and Dr Singal had the contacts in the medical community and the know-how to take a second opinion to save their family members, a common man may not have this facility and that triggered the concept of MediAngels.
"Many a times when patients are faced with difficult health situations or surgeries, they want to know if there is some other option available. Having worked in the US and UK and the best hospitals in India, we realised how technology can save lives and we aim to make the right doctor and right advice available through technology," says Dr Arbinder Singal.
MediAngels super specialist panel boasts of doctors from top healthcare institutions around the world. This includes Stanford University, Harvard University Hospital, John Hopkins (USA), Fortis and Apollo Hospitals (India), National University Hospital (Singapore) and Bumrungrad Hospital (Bangkok).
