About the author

Who am I - and how can I help? First of all, let me tell you who I'm not. I am not a doctor or agent for a 'third-world' hospital or care facility. No matter where you choose to be treated, I do not make a commission off it or benefit in any other way. Let me make this crystal-clear. I don't have a business association or affiliation with any doctor, hospital or care facility. My revenue is from the sale of this book. I owe my loyalties to you, my reader. I don't have a motive other than to provide useful information for my readers, who deserve to get better medical care at an affordable price. My name is Jay Siva, whose parents emigrated from Asia, so I have seen the best of both worlds. I not only have personal experience of the quality of healthcare and patient expectations in the developed countries…But thanks to my Asian network of professionals, friends, and family, I have also seen how these standards are being met (or exceeded) by hospitals in the 'third world'. There are hospitals in New Delhi and Bangkok that not only attract the cream of Asian medical talent but also meet the toughest standards specified by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the Joint Commission International (JCI) It's a pity that healthcare in developed countries is priced out of the reach of ordinary people. While we have some of the best doctors, hospitals and the most sophisticated medical technologies…We also have millions of sick patients who cannot afford any of it! On the other hand, most 'poor' countries have produced some of our greatest doctors, engineers and scientists. Someone just needed to build a world-class hospital and put them in it! The growth in medical tourism has already spurred a huge increase in demand for low cost, high-quality healthcare. It only took some smart venture capitalists to see the massive potential there. Flush with private funding, Asian hospitals are vying with each other to offer high-quality and first-class patient care at extremely competitive prices. Why I wrote this book? Most publishers these days are too concerned about sales and profits. They look for hype and sensationalism. As a self-published author, I seek to write about subjects that will fill real needs, not just bookshelves. In my latest book "The Complete Guide to Medical Tourism" I have shunned the hype and focused on practical, objective and useful information for patients and their families. Through my writings, I want to touch people, open their eyes to new possibilities and make their lives better. Although the benefits are many, I'm not here to advocate Medical Tourism. It is purely your decision. I am here to help you make an informed decision. YOU are in charge of your treatment and your health. Don't let anybody tell you otherwise!
