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! В клинику приехали второй раз. Обследовали мужа с упором на ЖКТ. Быстро, качественно. На обследовании были выявлены полипы, которые удалили в этот же день. Девочки переводчицы очень любезные, все объясняют, провожают. Рекомендую!

Rude staff. And the trip turned out to be in vain. So much time, effort and money was spent. Documents were preliminarily sent, and extracts available at that time, treatment passed, etc. They invited me to the examination and obtain a preliminary treatment plan, although it was clear to the provided procurers that treatment was impossible. They did the same thing that they had sent earlier, shrugged their hands and said Excuse me, we can’t help ... Грубый персонал. Да и поездка как оказалось прошла зря. Столько времени, сил и денег было потрачено. Предварительно были отправлены документы, и имеющиеся на тот момент выписки, пройденное лечение и тд. Пригласили на обследование и получение предварительного плана лечения, хотя по предоставленным документам понятно было что лечение невозможно. Сделали все тоже самое что отправили ранее, развели руками и сказали Простите ничем не можем помочь...

Good evening! In the Severance clinic itself, I liked everything. Everything is very organized. Polite clinic staff. There was one caveat. Nobody told me that preparations for a colonoscopy will be delivered to the hotel. If I hadn’t come to Severance hospital the day before, I’ve found a girl who speaks Russian. She phoned the clinic and explained that the package should wait at the hotel. A. So I would not be prepared on the appointed day. The rest I liked everything. I plan to come to you in a year. Thanks for all !! Добрый вечер! В самой клинике Северанс мне все понравилось. Очень все организовано. Вежливый персонал клиники . Был один нюанс. Мне никто не сообщил что будут доставлены препараты для колоноскопия в отель. Если бы я днём раньше не пришла в госпиталь Северанс где нашла девушку говорящую на русском языке. Она созвонилась с клиникой и объяснила что должна ждать в отеле посылочка. А. Так бы я пришла в назначенный день не подготовленная. Остальное мне все понравилось. Планирую через год к вам. Спасибо за все !!

It went well, I liked everything. The examination is quite informative, it became clear where to move in the treatment. I especially want to note the translator who contacted and accompanied the clinic on time during the consultation. Хорошо прошел, все понравилось. Обследование достаточно информативно, стало понятно куда двигаться в лечении. Особенно хочу отметить переводчика, которая вовремя связалась и сопровождала по клинике во время консультации.

The patient was treated of basalioma

Good day! I would like to share my impressions of being in the clinic. Thanks to the coordinators, the staff of the international clinic center, all wishes were taken into account. Special thanks to the attending physician, the procedure was perfect, the staff is very attentive, courteous. They are located in a 5-bed room, but at the same time there is no discomfort, food can be chosen taking into account personal taste preferences (Korean, European cuisine) and at the same time satisfying and varied. I can say one thing, there is no limit to my gratitude, my recommendations to friends, acquaintances only this Clinic! The prices are reasonable. Доброго времени суток! Хочется поделится впечатлениями о пребывании в клинике. Благодаря координаторам, сотрудникам международного центра клиники были учтены все пожелания. Отдельная огромная благодарность лечащему врачу, процедура проведена идеально, персонал очень внимательный, учтивый. Расположили в 5-тиместной палате, но при этом никакого дискомфорта, питание можно выбирать с учетом личных вкусовых предпочтений (корейская, европейская кухня) и при этом сытно и разнообразно. Могу сказать одно, благодарности моей нет предела, мои рекомендации друзьям, знакомым только эта Клиника! Цены приемлемы.

The patient was treated of melanoma

The staff is nice, but everything is on stream, as it does not take my problem seriously, as much as I would like! After my husband insistently said that it would be necessary to do so, so this, then after that we were heard. Персонал хороший , но все поставленно на поток, как то относятся к моей проблеме не очень серьезно, как бы мне этого хотелось! После того как мой супруг настойчиво сказал, что надо бы сделать так то, так то, то после этого нас услышали.

I chose to have the surgery because of result that I saw with the advertisement. My experience was pleasant and I’ve seen gradual result. I love my new chin. Some friends did not notice and some said I looked a little different. Personnel, surgeons, nurses are amazing and very professional, they all made me feel very comfortable.

Mom could not make an accurate diagnosis, and we decided to be examined in Korea. I left a request in bookimed. And what surprised immediately rang. I told you how, all the tests that were done, and I was advised by the Ehwa clinic. We immediately agreed and signed up with a mammologist. Everything is clean in the clinic, all doctors, all medical staff are qualified, and very friendly. The translator was with my mother all the time, and he explained everything very clearly. They quickly took the tests, and immediately established a diagnosis, they said it was necessary to do the operation. The operation lasted 5 hours (general preparation, etc.) after the operations in the clinic 10 days. They did everything neatly, everything had almost healed. I am satisfied with the clinic and the medical coordinators of Bookimed. Thank you all very much! Маме не могли поставить точный диагноз, и мы решили обследоваться в Корее. Оставила заявку в букимед. И то что удивило сразу же позвонили. Я рассказала что как, все анализы которые проводились, и мне посоветовали клинику Ихва. Мы сразу же все соглосовали, и записались к маммологу. В клинике все чисто, все врачи, весь мед персонал квалифицированные, и очень доброжелательные. Все время с мамой был переводчик, и очень понятно все объяснял. Быстро взяли анализы, и сразу же установили диагноз, сказали надо делать операцию. Операция длилась 5 часов (общ подготовка и тд.) после операций в клинике пролежала 10 дней. Все сделали аккуратно, уже все почти зажило. Я удовлетворена клиникой и мед координаторами Букимед. Всем большое спасибо!
