  • post operative care for tonsillectomy, Tonsillectomy  My father had a hip bone surgery in January. I have been using Care24 services ever since. The attendants that cane were good in the beginning. However their services have become good to bad to worse to worst in the last 15 days. They changed the night attendant without informing me personally just 6 hours before the time. My father had just settled down with the last attendant and now they were sending a replacement tonight. To add to my frustration the guy didn’t turn up and did not answer the calls. When I called their call centre - they said they can’t help me at this hour. Well- I can’t help but call them CARELESS CARE24.

  • post operative care for tonsillectomy, Tonsillectomy  If there was an option of negative stars then I would have choosen it. They offered me a package of₹ 5950/- for 10 days and after 2 days updated me on new package of ₹5700/- for 7 days without my consent. Even deposited my earlier cheque and then I had to follow up for the balance for about 10 days explaining my issue everyday to the new person on their helpline. They don't acknowledge emails too. Worst experience and definitely not recommended
