Verified review. The patient was treated of keratoconus in Memorial Şişli Hospital

The clinic has a welcoming atmosphere, but the wait for each appointment and an interpreter is sooo long. Doctor A. Ozkaya proved himself to be a professional, answered all our questions, the corneal transplant operation for my one-year-old child was rather quick and effective at the moment. We came across a very polite and excellent Bookimed coordinator Jan, he helped on any even minor issue, contacted the clinic, helped absolutely with everything! You have wonderful employees, prosperity and all the best! В клинике располагающая атмосфера, но ожидание каждого приема и переводчика - ооочень долго. Врач А.Озкая проявил себя, как профессионал, отвечал на все наши вопросы, операция по пересадке роговицы моему годовалому ребенку прошла довольно быстро и на данный момент эффективно.

Нам попался очень вежливый и отличный координатор Bookimed Ян, он по любому даже незначительному вопросу помогал, связывался с клиникой, помогал абсолютно со всем! У вас прекрасные сотрудники, процветания вам и всего наилучшего!

Verified review. The patient was treated of cataract in Confraternitaet Private Hospital

Everything was fine. Bookimed was very kind to find me an appointment pretty short notice in Vienna. The surgent was very professional. The only thing I would have preferred was to pay with a credit card. I had to go to an ATM and pay cash.

Verified review. The patient was treated of strabismus in Noviy Zir Hospitals Group

There was a slight misunderstanding in the treatment process; after a month, there was no apparatus for assessing visual acuity. At the consultation, we managed to ask all the questions we were interested in, but the consultation went very quickly, and in general we are satisfied. В процессе лечения было небольшое недоразумение, не оказалось, спустя месяц, аппарата для оценки остроты зрения. На консультации мы успели задать все интересующие вопросы, но консультация прошла очень быстро, а в целом мы довольны.

Verified review. The patient was treated of eye injury in Noviy Zir Hospitals Group

We applied to the clinic for the purpose of examining the eye for the subsequent sending of documents to a German clinic to determine a treatment plan. We are not satisfied with the quality of the examination in the clinic. Although it was agreed that the survey will need eyes after a thermochemical burn and several operations. Honey. the staff did not know how to examine such an eye. For 900 UAH we were given visual acuity and eye pressure of a healthy eye. True, we refused to drip and look at the fundus in the healthy eye. The diseased eye was left without examination, they said that they had encountered this for the first time. В клинику мы обратились с целью обследования глаза для последующего отправления документов в немецкую клинику для определения плана лечения. Мы не довольны качеством обследования в клинике. Хотя было оговорено, что обследование понадобится глаза после термо- химического ожога и нескольких операций. Мед. персонал не знали, как обследовать такой глаз. За 900 грн нам сделали замер остроты зрения и глазное давление здорового глаза. Правда, капать и смотреть глазное дно в здоровом глазу мы отказались. Больной глаз остался без обследования,они сказали, что первый раз с таким сталкиваются.

Verified review. The patient was treated of retinal detachment in Asklepios Hospital Barmbek

I have retina detachments issues therefore I applied this group of individuals. When we agreed there was one professor the one week prior to my arrival we retired and I was offered Dr. Shaudig whom i eventually never met. On meeting in the reception I was advised that said professor was ill today. So I was routinely and e consumer,inglese inspected by a couple of young 1doctors who told me nothing new in the end. The story cost me min 1000 Euros. For just nothing. It could look funny that such cases still occur in the 21 sr century in Western Europe. I was promised a report on my case from the Professor but I’m still looking forward to enjoy it. This circus took places in a Hamburg 28.11.17. Think twice everyone. Not all the gold that glitters
