In addition, visitors availed free ECG, X-ray, one free physiotherapy session, 40% discount on radiology investigation, 25% discount across various services like laboratory analysis, and medical, surgical and dental procedures too.
“Initiatives like community medical camps are often well received because they allow doctors to catch undiagnosed cases of common non-communicable diseases like diabetes and hypertension. In one such instance, a 54-year-old female was screened with extremely high levels blood sugar and blood pressure, and cross consultation were done including an eye-check that detected early signs of diabetic retinopathy. Based on these investigations, internal medicine doctors could help her in starting off her treatment early with proper medication and prevent further deterioration of her health and vision. Neglected chronic conditions like diabetes can silently have a long-lasting impact on the overall health,” said Dr. Faisal Parvez, Chief Operating Officer, Thumbay Hospital Ajman.
