Myself along with my wife and my son wanted to visit India for medical treatment. Through our embassy in India, we came in contact with Mr Sandeep from Sahyogita. He booked all our appointments with leading doctors in a very good hospitals in India. He also booked a very good guest house for us just in front of the hospital. Mr Sandeep was there all the time with us during our stay in India. He helped us for all the help required in hospital and locally. We also went to many scenic places in and around New Delhi with him. Our entire family thank Mr Sandeep for arranging all this. We would certainly recommend taking services of Sahyogita for treatment in India.
