Our Story

Medindia has been a pioneer in many ways and was one of the earliest health websites to be launched from India. Medindia was founded by Dr. Sunil Shroff, Arun Shroff and Sanjay Shroff – three brothers and passionate entrepreneurs who combined their diverse skills and experience in medicine, technology and business. Medindia was conceived originally with the social mission of educating consumers about health and providing physicians and professionals with the tools to leverage technology and the internet to improve healthcare. In order to further this mission, Medindia.net was launched as a website in 2001, and incorporated as a business in 2004, and has grown steadily ever since its inception.

In addition to the founders, Medindia is supported by a team of a highly qualified and experienced team of doctors, healthcare professionals, content researchers, writers, editors, designers, developers and analysts. Medindia is privately owned and operated by Medindia4u.com Pvt. Ltd. – with headquarters in Chennai, India and offices in USA and UK.
