Here are a few TESTIMONIALS we’ve recently received:

A few months ago, my daughter Kelly, complained of pain in her stomach, so we took her off to see our Doctor, who informed us that her appendix would need to be removed immediately and she needed to get to the hospital within the hour. We phoned Multimed from the Doctors, to get authorization for the operation and for blood tests to be carried out.  By the time we arrived at both places, the Multimed team had already pre-paid the required amounts and it was a hassle free situation. On top of which we received a visit while in Hospital to ensure that all had gone well and that there were no problems with payments.

I have been a member of a couple of other International Medical Aid Scheme’s and I have never received the care, attention or efficiency that I got from Multimed… ever!!!  They are a great crowd and live up to their reputation for efficiency and service. Thank you. Pastor Dave Edden – Harare

“I have recently returned from surgery in South Africa which indeed came as a shock to all my family. However, I just want to thank you for all that was done and your outstanding service. I will recommend Multimed to all I know. The morning I was admitted there was not one single problem, it was such a comfort to have everything so organised.”  Sadie King – Bulawayo

—————————————

“I want to say a big thank you to Multimed for their outstanding service in March when I had an unexpected but short visit to the clinic.  All pre-payments were met and I experienced no problems before or after my op. Thank you Multimed for putting my mind at ease.  I will recommend you to anyone who is looking for an outstanding medical aid.” Kathi Jordan – Harare

—————————————

I elected to have surgery in South Africa early this year. Multimed arranged trouble free admission and full payment for the entire procedure.  We were pleasantly surprised at this outstanding service and highly recommend Multimed for cost effective and reliable cover. Vera Dardagan – Harare

At a B & B in Louis Trichardt, my 6 year old son ran through a glass door. On our way to the hospital I phoned Multimed to confirm what we needed to do forgetting that as I was outside Zimbabwe, I should have phoned MSO. Nonetheless, Multimed immediately contact MSO who contacted us and took care of all the bills – we didn’t have to pay anything upfront. Basically, we made one call and everything was sorted out for us. When you are in a crisis you need someone to step in and sort out things for you. Multimed did that for us. Furthermore, Multimed made a follow up call to us later that evening to make sure my son was alright. That kind of service is hard to come by these days. Thank you Multimed. Wendi Brooking – Harare

—————————————

In March this year I was diagnosed with gallstones which required me to have my gallbladder removed as soon a possible. I was referred to a specialist who then booked a hospital bed and an anaesthetist for the operation. I had the operation and two days later I was back home. Multimed took care of all the bills without me having to pay for anything. To my wife and I this was a huge load off our shoulders as we were dreading to find the cash to have this operation.  I have no hesitation to recommend Multimed to anyone as they are efficient and pleasant to work with. Fintan Kelly – Harare
