Not good. The people that I had appointments with did not show up. I met with others who seemed to doubt my records and then claimed that my medical imaging showed no problems whatsoever. I returned home and now seem to have pneumonia in the top of my lungs around the vertebra that are known to have lesions (T1,T2,T3). I consider your service to be a fraud.

All our expectations were met. We needed a “second opinion” from real professionals - we got it. Many thanks to the support team of the site, thanks to Alexandra, who met us at the clinic. Very nice, cozy city. Once again, we were pleased with the trip and consultation with professors Bull and Sesterchen.

Immediately I will note not the intrusive and at the same time "essentially" made by Alena presentation of the clinic. And really everything turned out to be as they described to me: the doctor explained how he sees my situation, what kind of opinion of Moscow doctors he agrees with, and what does not and what he proposes to do. Everything is clear and reasonable.

Good afternoon everyone! The company bukimed very much helped in solving the terrible misfortune that happened in my family - this is cancer, namely the consultant Koval Ivan, gave hope for the recovery of my aunt. A couple of words about how the bukimed advised us with the hospital: we filed an application with a specific problem, and on the same day we received a call from the consultant Ivan, exactly one day we were offered three hospital options in Europe with a full description of the doctors and the cost of treatment. A week later we were already in Germany at a reception with Professor Dr. Hensch, the consultation was held at a very high level. Now my aunt is being treated and I'm sure that the treatment will be successful.)) I think the aunt will tell in more detail after full recovery. Personally from myself and from the weight of my family, I want to say HUGE thanks to the company Bukimed and Ivan for the quality work.

Jannat was lucky to get to him. May the Almighty protect all children and the sick. Health to all! 8938-8902684 Thanks you! I'm very happy. I haven't sighed like that right now for these 2 years.

The patient was treated of sarcoma
star star star star star

I think my story can support and inspire many people going through the rough period of uncertainty. So I was diagnosed with sarcoma in Dubai, the place where the level of medicine is extremely low. But even if you know you cannot trust the doctors, learning such news is very hard. My first idea was going to Germany for second opinion. After googling opportunities I sent a request to bookimed and got a call from medical coordinator Liza within 1 hour. Liza is an amazingly professional doctor but moreover she is a very compassionate and responsible person. She was with me through all my periods of doubts, questions and of course celebration. My visit to Berlin Buch was organized within 1 week’s time. And after 2 weeks I was in the hospital. Private Clinic in Berlin Buch is nice. But the most important is the doctors you meet there. My doctor – Juliane Bock is the best doctor I have ever met in my life. Attentive, professional, straight to the point and very understanding. Long story short. All the necessary tests and scans were made within 5 hours and I left the hospital for a 2 week waiting of my biopsy results. After 2 weeks I received a thorough reply from the hospital saying that the initial diagnosis was a mistake. And the tumor was benign. I am really grateful to Bookimed team and Berlin Buch team for helping me in every step of this hard period of my life, for support, professionalism and exceptional expertise.

I liked the clinic itself. The department has a very bad attitude towards Russians. The examination before the operation is very minimal, I would like to be more careful, considering that there is an oncological disease. At the same time Elena, who works in the international department, did everything possible. Many thanks to coordinator Alyona Soyak!

Thank you! The consultation itself went well - with the help of an interpreter, all the questions of interest were discussed with the professor from Germany, the main result - the exposure of the fact that the treatment is now proceeding in the right direction, also received from the professor some very important advice that did not appear in the consultations with Ukrainian doctors.

She underwent a course of radioiodine therapy in the Department of Nuclear Therapy. She was in the hospital for 4 days. The result, as I was told, will be determined only by repeated passage i.e. after 6 m. The ward is isolated, any contact with someone is limited, this is correct in view of the treatment I receive. The room has a bed, refrigerator, TV, internet, shower. Before I went to the hospital, I was received by a professor who gave a full consultation about my illness and my further actions. In general, the clinic staff are competent workers, responsive, good-natured.

    Уважаемый Грант, я- соотрудник международного отдела (Мария) и координировала Вас. Благодарю Вас за отзыв, и искренне сожалею, что мы не смогли решить Вашу проблему. Я хотела бы ниже привести факты и разьяснить Ваши вопросы: Вы обратились в нашу клинику с проблемой, которая была описана лично Вами на обычном листе бумаги. История Вашей болезни с Вашей стороны не была прикреплена никакими врачебными заключениями. Нашим упущением было то, что мы не потребовали ОРИГИНАЛЫ Ваших заключений заранее. В будушем мы будем более внимательно проверять документы при обработке запроса. Вам была назначена первичная консультация в отделении ЛОР. Зав. отделения проф. Зестерхенна в день консультации действительно не было в клинике. В таких случаях прием пациентов ведет заместитель профессора, врач высшей категории, Др. Циллис. Пациентов со сложными заболеваниями консультируют и обследуют только врачи высшей категории. Ваша консультация и обследование длились больше часа и было задействовано 2 врача. После того, как Вы рассказали свою историю болезни, у врача появились некоторые вопросы. Прошу отметить, что ни один из Вами озвученных диагнозов не был подтверждён ни одним врачебным заключением. Это вызвало у врачей некое недоумение и сомнение. Также клинический осмотр и просмотр дисков не выявили никакой патологии. Врачи убедительно просили предоставить хоть какие-то врачебные выписки, справки ( например оригинал гистологии, Вы предоставили только текст гистологии, без наименования клиники, врача, а также имя пациента ). Так как Вы не смогли предоставить запрошенные документы, то и врачи не смогли назначить лечение. Альтернативно врачи предложили начать обследование с начала, но Вы отказались. Ниже прикрепляю также ответ др. Цилиса на Вашу проблему. "Dear Mr Wiant! I respect your decision, although I cannot agree with the reasons for it mentioned by you. You must agree that finding a diagnosis means a complete examination in first place (also an ultrasound of the neck), rather than focusing on old results and findings whose source I can`t assess. The information provided by you was so extensive, that the time we spent on monday together to sort out the relevant protocols was not enough. Furthermore I can`t see a leck of respect; Dr. Schüller and I invested a lot of time and effort in trying to explain to you where the problems are and how to come over them. Concerning the refund I will inform Prof. Sesterhenn of your claim. I wish you good luck with your further treatment." Dr. med. Alf Cillis Leitender Oberarzt der Klinik für Hals-Nasen-Ohrenheilkunde, Kopf- & Halschirurgie, Plastische Gesichtschirurgie Städtisches Klinikum Solingen gemeinnützige GmbH Akademisches Lehrkrankenhaus der Universität zu Köln Gotenstraße 1 42653 Solingen

    Dear Grant, I am an employe of the international department (Maria) and coordinated you. Thank you for your Feedback. I sincerely regret that we could not solve your problem. I would like to give the facts below and explain your questions: You have contacted our clinic with a problem that you personally described on a plain sheet of paper. Your medical history was not attached by you without any medical reports. Our omission was that we did not require the ORIGINALS medical reports of your conclusions in advance. In the future, we will more carefully check the documents when processing the request. You have been assigned an initial consultation in the ENT department. Head Branch prof. Sesterhenn was really not at the clinic on the day of the consultation. In such cases, patients are admitted by a deputy professor, doctor of the highest category, Dr. Cillis. Patients with complex diseases are consulted and examined only by doctors of the highest category. Your consultation and examination lasted more than 1 hour and 2 doctors were involved. After you told your medical history, the doctor had some questions. Please note that not one of the diagnoses voiced by you has been confirmed by any official medical reports. This caused some bewilderment and doubt among the doctors. Also, clinical examination and viewing of CT and MRI scans did not reveal any pathology. Doctors convincingly asked to provide at least some medical extracts, certificates (for example, the original histology, you provided only the text of the histology, without the name of the clinic, doctor, and also the name of the patient). Since the doctors could not prescribe treatment. Alternatively, doctors suggested starting the examination from the beginning, but you refused. Below I also attach the answer of Dr. Cilis to your problem. "Dear Mr Wiant! I respect your decision, although I cannot agree with the reasons for it mentioned by you. You must agree that finding a diagnosis means a complete examination in first place (also an ultrasound of the neck), rather than focusing on old results and findings whose source I can`t assess.

The visit to Helios Hospital Krefeld was an utter disaster. I had tests that in Spain would cost around €300 and the overall cost was around €2700. The German hospital charging system for private patients was completely opaque. Bookimed fed us the wrong information throughout the process together with a company that we had never heard of called DMU. Thus we spent a fortnight of useless costs in Germany having be told that my treatment would be around 10 to 14 days. The stress of this together with Prostate Cancer has been immense and we must now return to Spain financially poorer and with very little extra information.

FAQ

Medical editor info

26.09.2016 · Updated 12.12.2019

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.

What are the main features of cancer treatment in Germany?

If you want to get treatment in Germany, you have to know some features of it:

  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. The doctor's CV will help to understand whether you can entrust to the physician. Doctors working in the hospitals listed on this page are all highly-qualified, so you can be sure of their professionalism — they have decades of experience, participate in international health organizations, and certified by cancer societies.
  • Patient reviews. The experience of other patients will help you to understand the level of medical service in a particular German center. You can find verified reviews on clinics on our website.

If you need a consultation regarding the choice of the medical center in Germany, submit a request on Bookimed. Our medical doctor will contact you to answer all the questions and choose the most effective option in your case.
