Launching INDIA HEALTH LINE in Kochi, Dr Pravin Togadia, a renowned Cancer Surgeon who has successfully done over 12,000 Cancer Surgeries & also is VHP International Working President said, “There are untreated diseases only because patients after primary examination by the doctor do not approach specialist doctors as advised. It is mainly due to poverty, fear of increased medical expenses if some serious disease is detected & sometimes even ignorance. The disease does not stop; it grows further affecting efficiency of the patient, impacting human working hours & when delayed the serious disease treatment costs much higher. Entire family gets affected by this. The poor, lower middle class & middle class families suffer more due to this. To avoid this, INDIA HEALTH LINE aims at connecting Medical Fraternity with the needy & poor patients. Doctors are a part of this great nation & the society. They always want to help. Now INDIA HEALTH LINE has given them avenue to help. So far nationally thousands of specialist doctors like Cancer Surgeons, Cardiologists, Gynecologists, Nephrologists, Urologists & many other specialist doctors have got associated with IHL. They will see the patients per appointment arranged by IHL & advice further.
