“In a vast, sandy desert, in the middle of a searing hot summer, I became the country’s first outdoor salesman,” says Dr Shetty. Going from clinic to clinic selling drugs to doctors, loading cartons, hoisting 5-gallon barrels on his shoulder up staircases was his first idea of working in the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi. He soon noticed the deficiency for basic clinics in the region and with his strong business acumen and consumer insight, he set up New Medical Centre – a small pharmacy diagnostic clinic. After that, there was no looking back. He was blessed with tremendous success and soon hospitals began sprouting over Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Al Ain.
Today, Dr Shetty is the proud visionary behind 55 healthcare facilities which cater to more than five million patients annually. All his healthcare facilities boast of multi-cultural doctors with impressive accreditations to their name and a quality standard in healthcare that promises affordable excellence. With this in focus Dr. Shetty has major projects lined up in Egypt and India.
