Our pricing policy is transparent and price estimation is provided for procedures. Care is customized, therefore, the cost of treatment will vary among patients. The estimated price represents a possible range of costs only and should not be interpreted as the actual costs of treatment.

For self-pay patients, we discuss the costs of procedures and any high cost treatment with our patients before the care begins. Full deposit is required for all procedures including CT/MRI/PET Scan.Initial deposit as estimated is also required for General Medicine Admissions. Once the procedure is done and if there is excess deposit, the money will be refunded to patient. We will also refund in full if the procedure is cancelled unless specified otherwise.

If payment is by cash/debit card, the refund will be by cash or money transfer.
