Natalya Feb 4, 2020

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 !!

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!

The patient was treated of melanoma in Samsung Medical Center

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.

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!

Ardak Jan 3, 2020

The stay was as usual with the expectation, I can not say anything about trust, because we just had a survey. I can’t write anything about the ward since we were in the clinic where they were conducting the examination. All medicine is put on stream. But in any case, I am sure that medicine is at a high level. I went through the basic package, I was satisfied with whether or not I can not even say. Пребывание прошло как обычно с ожиданием , о доверии не могу ничего сказать так как у нас было просто обследование . О палате ничего не могу писать так как мы были в клинике где проводят обследование. Вся медицина поставлена на поток . Но в любом случае я уверена что медицина поставлена на высокой уровень. Я проходила базовый пакет довольна осталась или нет не могу даже сказать .

The patient was treated of liver cancer in Kyung Hee University Hospital at Gangdong (KUIMS)

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. Клиника совсем с низким уровнем обслуживания. Приехали в 12 дня и их продержали до 16.30 в зале ожидания. Это при том что знали, что приехал пациент с 4 стадией рака, метастазы в позвоночнике. старому человеку с таким диагнозом очень тяжело сидеть. Папе моему 75лет, маме 71. Здоровому, молодому тяжело сидеть на одном месте почти 5 часов. Родители выбрали место в 6 местной палате. Одноместная Вип ничем не отличается от неё. В небольшой палате душно и тесно. Сопровождающему предоставляется место. Это выкатной матрас из под кровати, обтянутый кожей или кожзамом. Постельного, покрывала нет. Нам дали покрывало, когда попросили. И Папа вешал его на рядомстоящую кровать, что бы из под неё не дуло. Так и спал 5 дней в одежде на матрасе.
В день когда должны были делать мрт позвоночника сестра несколько раз подходила на ресепшн с просьбой маму принять пораньше. В итоге мрт сделали в 14-30. Все это время Мама не пила не ела с вечера. Страшно обессилела. Мрт делали долго, мама говорит, наверное, минут 40 и все это время она лежала на холодной поверхности, сильно замёрзла и в итоге маму мучили сильные боли в позвоночнике.
Когда мы отправляли маму в Корею, мы думали, что там маму хорошо обезболят, что в Корее лучшие препараты. Когда папа сказал, что маме стало хуже там, что мучают боли, от которых она постоянно плакала я попросила написать название обезболивающего. Сестра сразу направила название обезболивания нашему врачу. Оказалось ей давали парацетамол (зачем непонятно) и таблетку трамадола, тогда как тут у нас Мама получала обезболивающее три раза в день с морфием. Про что в российской выписке все было указано.
В итоге мы дома уже 5 дней выписку до сих пор не получили.
Не рекомендую эту клинику

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...
