  • The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
