Tips: Those who have the time and patience should get treated at the CMCH. While medical treatment at the CMCH is world-renowned, due to the high number of patients, it may take some time to get an appointment with a doctor. One will have to wait in line here and spend some time in the waiting room. Those who have less time or patience but have money are suggested to get treated through the Chennai Apollo app. And for those who have less time, patience, and money, it is advised to seek treatment at Shri Ramchandra or Narayani Hospital. Although Shri Ramchandra Hospital is somewhat behind the two in terms of facilities.
