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.

Very quick and clear consultation of Bookimed coordinators. For several hours, they helped organize a consultation at the clinic and lure the flight. A transfer from the airport to the city was also organized. In the clinic, with the help of coordinators, a consultation with explanations was successfully held, diagnostics were carried out, and the treatment process started. Very good attitude of doctors.

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.

Appealed to Bukimed after her husband refused a doctor in Israel. He has a relapse of the brain tumor. Very quickly and clearly the staff picked up another doctor, a clinic in Germany. Proposed options to choose from. Everything is very clear and professional very quickly. I want to say a big thank you to Ekaterina Kochergan and Maria and Alexandra from the international office of the Solingen clinic. After different experience of treatment in Israel, communication and work with these people gave pleasure. Thank you for being and continue in the same spirit !.

A huge thanks to the staff of the gastroenterological clinic and especially prof. Pfaffenbach for the highest professionalism in the treatment of my father (pancreatic tumor). Diagnosis and therapy (chemotherapy) were organized as soon as possible (December 2015). I hope that the visible results will be long-term.
Many thanks for the prompt coordination and solution of all issues in the treatment process!

I wish you good luck and prosperity.

We first used the services of medicine in Germany. The Nordwest Clinic, like its doctors, has left an exceptionally positive impression. Before the trip, a plan was made for visits to doctors, tests and time of surgery, which was strictly adhered to. The quality of services provided was provided at a high level. We have no comments or complaints. The host in the form of Russian-speaking translators constantly accompanied us at all stages of treatment. Special thanks to Alyona (Bookimed), who promptly and extensively answered any of our questions, which prompted us to decide to use the services of Bookimed.

Hello. I went to a clinic in Germany, Bookimed helped me a lot. Alexander and Kiril were very attentive to my problem. Thank them so much.

I cannot say anything for the treatment so far as the protocol has just been appointed and there is no result yet. If you want to find a good clinic, I advise everyone to use the services of Bookimed.

I liked the clinic, real professionals work, the equipment is modern, the kitchen for the patients was not always satisfied with practically no first courses, there were few hot various dishes.

The remark is not significant, so it is certainly possible to recommend sending patients of the appropriate profile to the diagnosis and treatment at this clinic, the more I can give a more reliable assessment, since I myself chose this one from the proposed clinics.

The patient was treated of sarcoma
star star star star star_border

My son was treated in this clinic for osteosarcoma of the left knee. The doctors we liked, attentive, responsive. True, there was no definite attending physician, as if all the doctors were in the know, and sometimes they had to tell everyone again. I would especially like to mention Christina Chef, a very pleasant and sensible doctor, and of course Gabriela Strauss, deputy head of department. Nurses know their business, sympathize with sick children, try to help, encourage. In the department of a homely atmosphere, lying is not boring. Either clowns will come, then a musician plays instruments with children, then volunteers make crafts with children, they treat with cocktails, they spend relaxation sessions. In general, the treatment is not painful, we liked it. About the cons, I will say that the previously announced amount of treatment does not correspond to the actual one. In reality, it turns out to be 30% more expensive, it must be taken into account by anyone who wants to know in advance how much the treatment will cost.

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 am very grateful to Olga for her help. It promptly and autumn responded to all questions regarding receiving a foreign consultation - sending documents, choosing which clinic and doctor to choose, sharing personal experience, controlling and agreeing on time for consultation and being interested in its results, in general showed full cooperation and interest. 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.

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.

I want to evaluate the work of Bookimed as a whole on the results of organizing the treatment of a father well. After examining the results of the surveys, we were presented with options for treatment. Despite the fact that initially we practically had a clinic for treatment selected (on our own), we revised and made a decision to undergo treatment at a clinic in Germany, which Bookimed offered. For all organizational issues, both Bookimed and the logistics company from the clinic offered support. We did everything on our own, but still it is nice when they want to help you. There were minor inconsistencies in organizational issues. But with the mines that provide support, always in touch and help them solve. But as for the treatment process at Helios Krefeld, everything is on the level. The result is satisfied. Of the minuses - the discharge process is not fully organized, the time for receipt of documents is not specific and rather long. A translator is needed. After we returned from treatment, we are awaiting the receipt of documents (conclusions) from the clinic, we have not left us on this issue either. Bookimed is a company of a good modern level, in any case do not think not to trust. The main thing is to keep the level and only raise it.

    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.

Surgery

Specialists working in German cancer clinics focus on low-traumatic operation for tumor removal. They can be performed in such ways:

  • Endoscopic — removal of a tumor with a special tube and camera at its end inserted through the natural openings. This technique is often used to remove non-metastatic cancer located in the gastrointestinal tract or urinary system.
  • Laparoscopic — removal of a tumor or affected organ through several small incisions (up 2 cm). The flexible tube is inserted in the incision, a doctor controls the process on the monitor and carefully removes a tumor.
  • Robotic — a surgical intervention on Da Vinci performed through small incisions up to 2 cm. A robot carefully operates under control of a doctor sitting at a special panel. A computer processes doctor's movements and makes them smoother excluding trembling or errors.
  • Open — removal of a tumor and metastases through the big incisions. Usually, German doctors apply such type of surgery in rare cases, when other operations can be ineffective.

Radiotherapy

This is the destruction of cells with radiation. It can be prescribed before or after surgery. Depending on tumor localization, German doctors carry out:

  • Remote radiotherapy is irradiation of neoplasm with a special device which directs a radioactive beam with the high accuracy. German cancer centers are equipped with the most innovative radiotherapy devices that allows irradiate only a tumor without affecting healthy tissues.
  • Brachytherapy is internal irradiation. A doctor places tiny radioactive seeds directly into the affected organs. These seeds irradiate a tumor, destroy it, and are removed from the body in a natural way. This option does not affect healthy tissues, allows preserve an affected organ, and a patient can lead a usual lifestyle just after the procedure.

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is the destruction of cancer cells with chemo drugs. They are administered intravenously or taken as pills.

To destroy metastases in the abdomen, German oncologists apply HIPEC (hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy). After surgical removal of visible malignant tumors, doctors administer heated chemo substance. Due to the high temperature, the agent penetrates deeply and destroys more metastases than traditional chemo. In 90 minutes, specialists remove the drug and put the stitches.

Hormone therapy

Treatment with hormones is applied in case of breast and thyroid cancer, some oncological disease of male and female sex organs. Hormonal therapy can stop tumor growth and can be applied with other treatment options.

Targeted therapy

Targeted therapy is applied in the best oncology hospitals in Germany. This is drug therapy influencing specific tumor genes or proteins. Targeted therapy is chosen according to a tumor type after medical tests. German doctors have vast experience in the application of this treatment option and select the most effective one in your case. Targeted therapy shows great results and is not harmful to healthy tissues.

Immunotherapy

This treatment option activates the patient's immune system to detect cancer and kill malignant cells. Only a doctor can decide whether immunotherapy will be effective in your case. It is usually applied when other therapies are ineffective.

German clinics apply the latest option for cancer treatment. The doctors may choose 1 primary method or combine it with other therapies. Only after establishing an accurate diagnosis, a German oncologist will develop an individual treatment plan in your case.

The patient underwent vaccination
star star star star star

The level of the clinic is high, qualified doctors. Of the minuses, this is a transfer: 1. Drivers do not speak English, cars are dirty, there is no child car seat. 2. When driving from the clinic to the hotel, the driver watched a movie on the phone, a phone in his hand, looked at the road, there was no traffic jam, made a remark, the driver began to watch a little less often. 3. The car does not arrive at the agreed time, 2 cases: - from the clinic to the hotel: asked to wait from 14:10 to 14:30, we agreed, as a result every 10 minutes we were told the car would be in 5 minutes, waited until 15:10 ... such a service with a child is very inconvenient, if they were oriented correctly in time, they would take a taxi right away - from the hotel to the airport: the car was 45 minutes late! Every 5 minutes we were told a car would be here. We called a taxi, but the car arrived. Due to the fact that we did not have to check in our luggage, we managed to get on a plane.
