    Very little waiting time before i was ushered in to see the specialist. Very friendly and accommodating staff in the hospital. The Specialist that attended to me was great. Despite his tight and busy schedule, he still took his time educating me on every detail about my ailment including the pros and cons of all options available for the surgical intervention for it. I recommend this hospital for other clients.

The clinic was visited by a Medigo team member

The clinic was difficult to reach as it is located around 30km outside of Abu Dhabi. You can get there by personal car, taxi or by bus, however it was difficult to get information about the bus schedule or timing. There is parking in front and at the back of the hospital. All of the equipment is new and modern, the feel is like in a European hospital. In the UAE, there is only one MRI room with mood changing light and Ahalia Hospital Mussafah have it. The staff members are very friendly and very nice.
