We arrived at the clinic a second time. Her husband was examined with a focus on the digestive tract. Quickly, efficiently. The examination revealed polyps that were removed on the same day. The translator girls are very kind, they explain everything, and see them off. I recommend!

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

The clinic is completely low level of service. We arrived at 12 noon and were held until 16.30 in the waiting room. This despite the fact that they knew that a patient arrived with stage 4 cancer, metastases in the spine. it’s very difficult for an old person with such a diagnosis to sit. My dad is 75 years old, my mother is 71. It is hard for a healthy, young one to sit in one place for almost 5 hours. Parents chose a place in 6 local wards. Single VIP is no different from her. The small room is stuffy and cramped. The attendant is provided with a seat. This is a roll-out mattress from under the bed, covered in leather or leatherette. There is no bedspread. We were given a blanket when asked. And Dad hung him on a nearby bed, so that from under it would not blow. He slept for 5 days in clothes on a mattress. On the day when they were supposed to do an MRI of the spine, my sister came to the reception several times asking her to take her mom early. As a result, the MRI was done at 14-30. All this time, Mom did not drink, did not eat in the evening. Terribly exhausted. They did an MRI for a long time, mom says probably 40 minutes and all this time she lay on a cold surface, froze very much and as a result, her mother was tormented by severe pain in the spine. When we sent mom to Korea, we thought that there mom would be well anesthetized, that Korea had the best drugs. When dad said that mom got worse there, that they are tormented by pains, from which she constantly cried, I asked to write the name of the pain medication. My sister immediately sent the name of pain relief to our doctor. It turned out she was given paracetamol (for some reason) and a tramadol tablet, while here Mom got pain medication three times a day with morphine. About what everything was indicated in the extract.

Fate had to visit the Quims clinic, which we learned about from the coordinator Catherine (Kiev). She kindly provided information and consulted in good faith during her stay in Korea. We were met at the airport, brought to the clinic. Polite translators worked with us. Quickly diagnosed. We took into account the wishes for acceleration in time of treatment. The conditions in the ward are acceptable. We were surrounded by the constant attention of medical staff. Communication with the Son and Khan processors, the whole atmosphere of the clinic gave us hope for a speedy recovery and a positive outlook on life. Thank. Rahmet from Gulnara and Zamira.

Good afternoon! Stay in the clinic was excellent. clean, comfortable, understandable. check-in about 2 hours. I didn’t go there with the aim of being treated - therefore I am not writing about the result. a doctor’s appointment is quite expensive, paid separately, lasts 5-10 minutes gives recommendations and that’s all - be healthy) the clinic does not have any plastic surgery or everything related to the unproven treatment methods for unrecognized diseases (osteochondrosis, dystonia)
