Doctor with a capital letter After a long rush about doctors, I finally found Professor Schels - not just a world specialist, but also a sympathetic person who attentively and thoughtfully listened to my whole story, looked at the extracts and appointed additional examinations. All diagnostics took place extremely quickly and clearly. The prescribed treatment of Professor Scheels is working, this is the most important thing. Special thanks to the accompanying Vladimir for the clear translation and help in resolving all issues.

He underwent a replacement of the t / b joint. The clinic is good, the rooms are comfortable and spacious. I was with my wife, both were satisfied with the accommodation. Professor Kraft operated, it was at the highest level, he was very pleased, there were no complications, they put him on his feet that evening, on the third day he was already walking along the corridor, on the 5th day he was sent for rehabilitation. healed quickly, the pain from the suture didn’t really bother, after 3 weeks everything went away. Professor Kraft is very attentive, he came in person, answered questions, told the nuances. The junior staff did not speak English well, which caused problems. Rehabilitation is very intense and sensible. Gymnastics, fitness equipment, massages, walks, procedures - everything was selected individually and contributed to a quick recovery. Thank you Bookimed, everything is organized well, quickly and on time. I was very pleased.

Craniotomy Patient Experience Reviews

Verified review.
I underwent an online consultation on the choice of the most optimal treatment option. Since two well-known Moscow clinics gave completely different recommendations for the treatment of my disease (spleen lymphoma): surgical removal of the spleen, or chemotherapy, I decided to ask the opinion of a German professor. Of course, it is very expensive to be treated in Germany, but getting a competent opinion on your specific case, sending all the necessary tests, diagnostics and receiving answers and a treatment regimen, is quite possible: my online consultation cost 650 euros + a written summary with translation into Russian. The whole process, from collecting documents / analyzes, to receiving the final summary, was accompanied by the coordinating doctor Alexey from Bookimed, to whom I am very grateful. He is very responsive, always in touch, answers all questions, but at the same time he is tactful and unobtrusive - a real professional and a very kind person. So, I received answers to my questions, chose the tactics of treatment, and all this for a very reasonable fee. The only drawback is the excess of the stated deadlines, which is not typical, as I think, for the Germans (the consultation was promised within 7 days, in fact it took place 15 days after payment, and the final summary was delayed for a couple of days), it would be better to immediately position the maximum period , then there would be no painful days of waiting. In general, I am satisfied with the result. I think in my case, this is just a very convenient form of counseling that does not require huge material and organizational costs associated with physical travel abroad. I bow to the coordinator Alexei for his patience, tact and professionalism!
