Dr Patrick Justin Lawrence, takes his carrier-a family doctor not only to treat individuals but also a responsibility providing health care to the community. He and his support team had started outreach medical programs since the 90’s, giving free medical screening and treatment to both rural and urban area around the Klang Valley. More than 10,000 under privileged had benefit from these medical services. It was by a chance that Dr Patrick had a meeting with the world renowned cardiac specialist and founder of Narayana Health in Bangalore, India. They share the same idea.
"No one should be deprived from getting medical attention due to financial constraint"
Dr Devi Shetty was interested in offering free medical surgery to patients whom are in need. Dr Patrick and Dr Shetty then came up with the idea of creating a health screening centre for the masses with a smart partnership involving telemedicine with Narayana Health.
The initiative to set up MediAssist4U was started in September 2005. A local administrator was also enlisted to handle all the necessary paperwork to commence the organization. By December 2005, the clinic was established. On 12th March 2006, MediAssist4U proudly spread its wings to the public and later in 2007 relocated to Ampang. Ampang seemed ideal as it is convenient and easy accessible to the public. The location seems perfect to cater for a diverse community in which MediAssist4U wished to serve.
