Putting our patients first: Delivering reliable pathology reports
It gives me immense satisfaction to pen down this message as the Chairman of Metropolis Healthcare Ltd.

I started out with a single minded focus on putting our patients’ first and a relentless pursuit in delivering accurate results and quality reports.

Our promise to the patient is very simple; reliable pathology reports and for that we walk the extra mile for recheck and reflex at no additional cost to our patients.

Working in tandem with doctors because pathology matters
More than 70% of medical decisions today are based on diagnostic reports. My team of doctors is constantly in touch with clinicians, work in tandem and help them diagnose and make treatment decisions for their patients. Be it a simple blood sugar test or a complicated molecular genetic test, we have built in all the capabilities to deliver the absolute best.
