Patient Testimonials

She was completely fine until a few months ago when she suddenly started to get breathless with constant stomach ache. We tried to treat it with the medicines the local doctor gave us but her condition started to worsen. Her diagnosis of a rare ailment of spleen enlargement, combined with monetary burden, resulted in doctors refusing to treat her or referring us to other hospitals. Then one day Allah Himself sent help to us. A woman who visited our neighborhood at a funeral told me to visit Shalamar Hospital. The doctor here not only scheduled a surgery for her immediately, but the hospital also subsidized the entire cost of surgery as we could not afford it. My daughter is now completely healthy and will start going to school again in a few weeks. I can never thank Allah and the entire team at Shalamar Hospital enough for removing our worries and treating our daughter.
