Had a great experience here. Staff spoke good english. Organized and clean.
One of the sh*ttiest hospital ever. If you are foreigner, even International Healthcare center can’t help you. Take Korean person with you or else they make you run from one place to another and anyway at the end you will end with zero effort. I just waste my time and money in that hospital. They really don’t care about your health situation. They only can make you run.
The front desk needs more trainingVery rude. Hang up the phone before I finished it. I would not recommend to anyone.
Not a fan of this place. I've been here 5 times, and every time has been a terrible experience.
Advisable hospital very professional
because I love any place in korea
Everyone spoke English and I was helped through the whole system by a volunteer who spoke English and Korean. I would have been lost otherwise. It is a bit expensive though.
