The clinic is pretty far from the city but it's easy to find. Parking is not an issue because they have free valet parking. Traffic is usually pretty good at any time of the day. Everything seemed clean, modern, very tidy. The staff was kind and friendly.

NMC Royal Butcher Hospital
I visited on night of 2nd January with my friend in ER. There was a male doctor who had so much attitude that he didn’t even let my friend to tell his problem or check him, instead he said that he will give some pain medication and will do some investigation and then he will see. He was in such a hurry that no whatsoever explanation was given by him. Nurse started the medications after 45 min till then my friend was in pain. The nurses were chatting so loud that it felt, we were in fish market. After the test result the doctor said he cannot tell what exactly my friend had but advised to be admitted in hospital. When I asked the reason to be admitted he asked me whether I m the doctor or he is? Then he called the nurse and told the nurse if we were willing for admission then fine otherwise empty the bed. I told him let us think then he said better sit outside and think.
My friend was in pain and made us sit outside and then we left the hospital. We went to another hospital where the doctor diagnosed without any test and within few hours my friend was much better while in NMC butcher hospital only the doctor wanted to admit him without any reason and without knowing what is going on with the patient. Hopefully will never visit this hospital ever again
Thanks to Dr Bhushan for the successful surgery. It was so amazing that I found a very good and professional doctor who is an expert in his own field. All my families and friends were so thankful that you had given me hope to live. I was so scared at first knowing that I had a tumor, but with what you have done you had given me hope. Thank you so much also to all the nursing staff and everyone who took care of me during my stay in the hospital. All were so helpful and caring. Thank you for the support as it is so hard to be away from family with my condition. But, everyone was just amazing with the service and care given to me.
