The Healthcare at Mangaluru is indeed overrated especially for Western allopathy medicine. Some doctors here are excellent, some are absolutely terrible and most are in between. It is quite common for doctors at KMC, Father Mullers and SCS hospitals to perform unwanted medical tests, unnecessary surgeries, unwanted Caesarian surgeries and complications just for the sake of money. A few other doctors simply check 1 or 2 patients in an entire day.

I still remember a patient that had traveled early morning from Kottigehara to a Mangaluru hospital with appointment getting ignored by the doctor. This patient had waited all day at Mangaluru to meet him, and the doctor did not bother to attend her illness and problem. The poor patient told me (fellow patient) her problem and she went back in the evening dejected.

However, some doctors at Mangaluru are excellent and they show humanity and concern.

Healthcare is a business throughout the world including Mangalore. Hospitals and doctors have money as their top priority.
Even a single Covid test costs several thousands of rupees.
In fact, Healthcare is the most profitable business today and will be, in the months to follow.

Since hospitals are good in Mangalore. I always took patients from karwar to Mangalore. Father Mullers, Yenepoya hospital Derelkatte A.J. Hospital. Good care has been taken.

Ms. Leen,
Mangalore hospitals do not believe in Global Marketing strategies, that are done by Apollo, Fortis, Aster, Columbia Asia, Narayana, etc.
People in this city do not want to wait in a long queue and fill formalities just to get a patient admitted.
Trust me, the healthcare quality in Mangalore's private hospitals is very good. That's the reason why several people from Dakshina Kannada, Udupi, Chikmagalur, Shimoga, Hassan, Coorg, Uttara Kannada districts plus Kerala districts like Kasargod, Kannur, Wayanad and Kozhikode travel daily to Mangalore for better healthcare.
The city has also opened up for medical tourism because of several foreign cruise ships docking at the Mangalore Port.

Why has Mangalore such a high health care Index? Which one are the best Clinics/Hospitals or Orthopedic Hospitals?
