General Health Services
We treat both acute and chronic medical conditions, including allergies, cold, flu, conjunctivitis, diarrhea, headache, stomach ache, gastric pain, urinary tract infection, etc.
We believe in taking care of all aspects of our patients’ health.
When patients require more care and attention in their general health, we can intensify care and treatment at the clinic through our Intermediate Care Services with our specialist partners in Cardiology, Endoscopy, Ophthalmology, and Physiotherapy. We facilitate investigations with our specialist partners closely to ensure patients get the necessary treatments as soon as possible.
