I got back from Anand about two weeks ago and I'd like to just leave a few tips here for everyone.
Hotel: We stayed at Rama and could not have asked for anything better. It's not high end or luxurious but the staff is super nice, you get free breakfast, and the best part about it is that it's literally a 3 minute walk to Dr. Patel's office. I went and visited Laksh, Casa, and Madhuban. Laksh and Casa are almost the same as Rama. But Madhuban is another league - it's a beautiful hotel. If you can afford it, stay there, if not, Rama is your best bet! Just a small tip, I purchased and packed lots of stuff (water kettle, dish soap, laundry detergent, antibacterial wipes, etc.) which I had a lot left over. Rama let me store a box of my stuff there so that if and when I'm able to return, I dont' need to bring them again - so you should ask your hotel if you can do that. Also, Rama has free wifi, which is a neccessity.
Clinic: The front desk ladies are so sweet. Mary and Yogita, it was really nice to see their smiling faces every day. Dr. Patel is super busy so I never really got to speak to her for more than 2 minutes at a time. The scans are quick and she's very efficient. The guy that draws blood keeps a bottle of hand sanitizer spray by this desk, so make sure you ask him to spray his band before he draws your blood.
Food: Rama's food is pretty good, we ordered from there a lot. We also ate at Mirch Masala, 24/7 at Madhuban (buffet for 600 rupees/person), Dawat (really good dosas), Hungry (amazing non-veg), and Noon to Night.
Shopping: We got stuff made at Calison (down the street) from Rama. The owner's name is Hatish, he'll take really good care of you, he's super professional and his work is quality.
Medical Records/Contract: Make sure you request that you want your medical records at least a few days before you leave to come home becuase it takes a few days for them to enter all of Dr. Patel's notes into the system and create a file for you. Also our contract had tons of errors in it so you want to make sure there is enough time for them to make changes.
Day trip to Vadodara: We hired a driver to take us to Vadodara for a day. It was a good break from the usual. I would highly recommend going to Mainland China (it's inside a mall and your driver should know where it is). Eating Indian food everyday can get a little boring, so this was a good change. The shopping in Vadorara is also really nice. When my husband arrived, we also went to Vadorada to golf for the day. THe golf course is beautiful and is on the same land as the Royal Family with beautiful palaces. If your husband golfs, this is also a fun activity. It was 1150 rupees for a round of golf, 100 rupees for a caddie, and another 500 to rent clubs - not bad - just remember to wear slacks and a hat.
I'll try to write more as I remember. But overall, I have to say that going to the clinic is probably going to be your highlight of the day, Anand is a very small town and there isn't much to do.
