It was through Health Manager Saba over 2 years back, that I first came to know about Portea. Saba has been extremely courteous & helpful to me & my wife .
Through her we both have availed Portea services like physiotherapy, Doctor visits, ECG at our home. She has been our one-window approach to Portea ever since.
I think Portea is fortunate in having Saba as one of their Health Managers. I hope she will continue to help us by arranging for a good General Physician, in our area, to visit us in emergencies. We both are too old to go to Doctors’ Dispensaries. We are willing to pay for their visits. Thank you
I would like to convey my appreciation for the commitment and dedication that Health Manager Hema has towards my family. I am glad to say that I feel quite relaxed when it comes to my father’s Health as she serves as a single point of contact for any of our requirements.
I would also like to Thank Portea for giving such a good experience by providing timely services through Health Manager Hema.
