The itching has stopped and her grandchildren no longer mind playing around her.
Shanti Bai is a 55 year old female hailing from Jhadol village in Udaipur district in Rajasthan. Shanti Bai visited the e-Doctor Clinic for her skin problems. She experienced itching all over her body and developed some spots on her hands and legs. The bigger concern was that people around her didn’t want to touch her and stayed away from her. She has been facing a skin problem since the last 25 years and it recently got aggravated.
She had consulted at multiple places but didn’t find sustained relief for her problems. It is after consulting the doctor at e-Doctor clinic that her pruritus found relief. She is undergoing an ongoing treatment for her problem which has resulted in a complete turn-around of her earlier situation.
“My name is Uma Gadi. A year ago, I had my first miscarriage. After this, I went to a private hospital instead. My miscarriage continued there too, haunting my family and me. First, I sought help from the medical services in the village of Kattroli where the private doctor mishandled my case and his medicines only made me worse. I was tired and desperately wanted a solution for the sake of my family. Not being able to carry a child affected me personally too.
Finally, I heard about Karma from a friend and headed to Railmagra village to a Karma clinic. In just a month, I was able to carry another baby and had no miscarriage! My family couldn’t believe it and Karma didn’t make us run around like the other clinics. Doctor Shweta from Jaipur took great care of me but I could never even think of affording an actual trip to Jaipur. So, Karma brought her to us!
When I used to go to the clinic in Kattroli, I would have to pay rent and the whole expense was about 7000 to 8000 rupees with an added 2000 for travel. Because of the expense, my family couldn’t even come with me. Here, Karma only charges me 150 rupees for the treatment and my whole family can come with me because of how inexpensive it is. So I have the added support too. Karma’s services have made me a mother, and a really healthy and happy one too, I’m very thankful for their help.”

Navlaram is a 65 years old male and lives with his children and grandchildren in Bedas, a small village in the Udaipur District in Rajasthan. He is an asthma patient who started observing hints of blood while coughing. He lost his appetite, started losing weight, and became very weak. So much so that he could not go to his field regularly. Combination of ignorance, fear and lack of proper facilities made him delay the treatment until last year.
Following the advice of neighbors, he then visited the government hospital in Salumbar about 25 km away from his village; a private hospital in Sangwada about 60 km away, and also to a local quack. The correct diagnosis wasn’t made at any of these places and the medicines suggested gave him no relief. He then visited Udaipur, the nearest big city with advanced medical care facilities. He went to Udaipur twice but due to his weakness, traveling to a large distance was becoming difficult for him.
In April 2015, Navlaram learnt about e-Doctor clinic located in Karawali, just 8 km away from his residence. Here, he consulted an M.B.B.S. doctor for his complaints. e-Doctor Clinic’s nurse explained to him the method of taking medicines, whether the medicines have any side effects, and how to tackle them. Navlaram also understood the importance of not missing doses and completing the full course of medicines. Navalram has made a family health card with e-Doctor clinic and has made 15 visits to e-Doctor clinic so far to show either himself or someone or the other in his family. Here’s what Navlaram had to say:
He is very satisfied with the treatment provided and highly values the time saved in visiting a doctor in the city. He now has peace of mind knowing that there exists a reliable healthcare facility in the vicinity and recommends the same to others.
