Jumeirah Terrace Speciality (JTS) Medical Centre was established in 2012 as a passionate venture of four medical practitioners, namely Dr. Suresh Puri, Dr. Abhay Dandawate, Dr. Marlon O. Pereira, and Dr. Mathews J. Alapatt. They had embarked on a mission to establish a speciality centre to meet the scope of healthcare needs in a specialty clinic setting. Built upon the foundation of quality, trust and expertise, JTS Medical Centre has gained a loyal multinational patient base and is now set to celebrate six years of excellence. The founding doctors are highly qualified in their own respective fields, bringing years of extensive experience, knowledge and practice both internationally and regionally to the JTS brand.

Dr. Marlon O. Pereira, who is the Managing Director and Specialist Clinical Pathologist, noted: "The Centre has grown after careful analysis of patients' requirements based on the experience gathered over the years. We have added specialities to augment and complement each other to best meet and exceed the service requirements."

"Currently our brand is one that symbolises the synergies of the core specialities. We serve a diverse range of clientele and ensure that most of, if not all, their requirements are catered to at all times. Keeping this in mind, we have recently embarked on an in-house expansion, a state-of-the-art setup in Ophthalmology with a team lead by Dr. Chidamber B. Srinivas and Dr. K. R. Sathish, who are both highly experienced ophthalmologists and ophthalmology surgeons," he added.

"When one thinks about specialist healthcare, it is natural to imagine a big hospital. However, we wanted to implement a multi-speciality clinic environment where patients could enjoy flexibility when interacting with our doctors, get appointments at ease, and even simply walk in to the facility for medical assistance," said Dr. Suresh Puri, Consultant Internal Medicine and Pulmonologist.

"Our reputation is built around the fact that we focus on a patient-centric model that keeps global best medical practices and evidence based medicine in an ethical-minded delivery process. We pride ourselves on our dedication to treating each person as an individual with unique healthcare needs," said Dr. Abhay Dandawate, Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon. Dr. Mathews J. Alapatt, Specialist Internal Medicine, added that adherence to medical care delivery with a very personalised touch is of paramount importance at JTS Medical Centre. The friendly and professional approach of staff across the board is the key to the service delivery. "As far as future plans go, we aim to expand stepwise identifying the niche segments to add value to the to the JTS brand," he added.

Its in-house facilities offer a medical laboratory services that is accredited by the ISO 15189:2012 to perform analysis in the fields of haematology, bio-chemistry, endocrinology, microbiology, immunology as well as serology. Dr. Pereira added that the laboratory offers a comprehensive solution for all acute, chronic and elective patient requirements. Other facilities include a medical imaging department, physiotherapy clinic, optometry department and vaccination clinic.
