Medical Tourism is not limited to patients visiting doctor but doctor visiting to patient is medical tourism too.
In Rural India, still the Mantric (Mantra Expert that offers herbs too) visits the patient bit by the snake. In Mahabharata too , there is description of Snake Bite Doctor (Mantric) visiting the patient bit by snake. (Adiparva , 50, 18-25
The story is that a sage son cursed King Parikshit for dying by Takshak Snake . Parikshit arranged many protective methods for snake bite. Parikshit declared money for doctors who could save him from poisonous Takshak Snake . A Snake Bite Expert sage Kashyap started visiting Parikshit palace in hope of huge wealth . On the way, Sage Kashyap met Snake Takshak. After asking question, Kashyap told to Kashyap that he (sage) was an expert. Takshak bit a green tree and burnt it by poison and Kashyap made the ead tree alive by his Mantra . Takshak lured Kashyap by offering Kashyap more money and Kashyap returned back without visiting King Parikshit.
स दष्ट मात्रो नागेन भस्मी भूतो अ भवन्नग:
काश्यपश्च ततो राजन्नजीवयत तं नगम ( Adiparva 50, 23)
स एवमुक्तो नागेन काश्यपो द्विपदां वर :
लब्ध्वा वितं निववृते तक्ष्काद यावदीप्सितम ( Adiparva 50, 25)
The above story clearly is an example of medical tourism where doctor visiting the patient for money .
