    Dr. Gupta,
    I saw your piece on Medical tourism this evening but have not found the piece online. I especially enjoyed the story since I was forced to have knee surgery in India 2 years ago because I could not get a doctor to see me without insurance here. I was at Max Hospital in New Dehli. I traveled alone. For the most part I had excellent care at the hospital. The staff was much more attentive to my care than any care my relatives have received in the states. Not all the equipment was up to date but the operating room seemed to be. I blogged about my experience here: http://www.midlifeonwheelsblog.com/2008/09/passage-to-india-for-healthcare.html . It would have been nice if I could have received care in the country that I live in but I think my care was better in India.

    Thanks again for your story.
