Before and After  Pictures
Bookimed is a company of a good modern level, in any case do not think not to trust
I want to evaluate the work of Bookimed as a whole on the results of organizing the treatment of a father well. After examining the results of the surveys, we were presented with options for treatment. Despite the fact that initially we practically had a clinic for treatment selected (on our own), we revised and made a decision to undergo treatment at a clinic in Germany, which Bookimed offered. For all organizational issues, both Bookimed and the logistics company from the clinic offered support. We did everything on our own, but still it is nice when they want to help you. There were minor inconsistencies in organizational issues. But with the mines that provide support, always in touch and help them solve. But as for the treatment process at Helios Krefeld, everything is on the level. The result is satisfied. Of the minuses - the discharge process is not fully organized, the time for receipt of documents is not specific and rather long. A translator is needed. After we returned from treatment, we are awaiting the receipt of documents (conclusions) from the clinic, we have not left us on this issue either. Bookimed is a company of a good modern level, in any case do not think not to trust. The main thing is to keep the level and only raise it.

FAQ about Oncology in Germany

Why do patients choose Germany for cancer treatment?

International patients pick German hospitals to cure cancer due to:

  • High effectiveness of treatment. Cancer centers in Germany show one of the highest indexes of patients recovery. For instance, the average 5-year survival rate for breast cancer is 81.6% (for initial stages it will be higher) according to the German Cancer Society and 91% for prostate cancer according to the German Ministry of Health.
  • Availability of the latest treatment options. Hospitals for oncology treatment in Germany apply the latest medical technologies. Some of them offer alternative options newly developed as a result of clinical trials.
  • Experienced doctors. German doctors who manage cancer treatment have decades of experience, permanently improve their skills to apply the latest technologies, conduct clinical trials to develop new therapies and implement them around the world.

Despite the above-mentioned benefits, treatment in Germany has some disadvantages. Among them — high treatment cost and slow therapy arrangement (it takes from 2 weeks) according to the Bookimed medical coordinators opinion. So, if you need some cheaper options and require treatment immediately, Bookimed medical doctor can recommend some other countries for treatment.

  1. The treatment of oncology in Germany is arranged within 2-3 weeks after your request on Bookimed website.
  2. Before the medical trip, you receive the bill from the clinic. You need to prepay the treatment to confirm your arrival.
  3. Then you will receive an invitation from the German hospital that will boost your applying for a visa.

How to choose the best cancer center in Germany?

To choose a top clinic for oncology treatment in Germany, pay attention to:

  • Clinic's specialization. While choosing the hospital for treatment, learn whether the medical center specializes in your cancer type. The statistics of the clinic or consultation with Bookimed manager will help you to make the right choice.
  • Doctor's experience. One of the key factors to successful treatment is the choice of the experienced doctor. It is important a doctor specializes in a particular cancer type.
