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...

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.

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

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.

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 !!

I needed to have a spinal mri in Italy, and couldn’t find any clinic that could do it. It was either a 4 month wait, clinic never called me back, or they hung up because my Italian wasn’t very good. I contacted Bookimed and within hours they responded and put me in touch with a lovely woman in Milan who got me an appointment at a private clinic in Milan in 2 days. She accompanied me throughout the appointment and translated when necessary. Something I dreaded ended up being a smooth and easy process. Thank you.

Thanksfull to bookimed for help me for my surgery in my brain they support me by one of best doctor in that section and he advised me many choices of surgery and hospital offers . I hope see them in top always they deserve 5 Stars. 😊

После предварительного собеседования. Предоставиди выбор из несскольких клиник. Связали с представителем выбранной клиники. Дали контакты. Все дальнейшее общении и информацию получал напрямую от представителя клиники. Никаки предоплат не требовалось. Все договоренности были выполнены по заранее договоренным датам, без каких либо накладок. Договор на мед обслуживани заключался в клинике непосредственно перед госпитализацией. Спасибо сайту за грамотную оценку необходимых услуг и быстрый выход на необходимую клинику.

I had to book 3 appointments in a hospital at Istanbul for my brother and his wife, both with serious health problems. I have contacted Bookimed who had reacted immediately and put me in touch with Dr Emad Hussein. After listening to the description of the sicknesses of my relatives, Dr Hussein explained very clearly what are the medical documents to have for the day of appointment as well as all administrative steps to follow. Then he put in touch with Mrs Farah from Liv Hospital for the appointments and she has been very efficient and helpful. I do not know how to thank Dr Hussein and bookimed for the excellent service provided. Nadia

Очень и очень довольна взаимодействием с Букимед. Прошла лечение от рака молочной железы. В ноябре 2018 года летала на обследование в Стамбул, клиники Медиполь и Анадолу. Помогли с билетами, организацией поездки, всегда оставались на связи. Координатор от Букимеда имеет медицинское образование, может качественно проконсультировать по поводу клиник, врачей. Лично для меня это большой плюс. До этого я лечилась в Израиле, организовывала все своими силами и потратила несравнимо больше времени, сил и нервов. Буду работать с Букимед в будущем и рекомендовать знакомым.

My experience with bookimad was great; the thing that I appreciate is the high sense of humanity of the staff, especially Dr Farruk Ahmed. He answer all my questions in time, he read my poor English and make me feel comfortable, such thing is so important for someone that suffer. I know they do their best to help. Thank you Dr.

BGN Eye Clinic

I had SMILE performed. Absolutely no down time, was out and about 20mins after procedure with 20/20 vision albeit a bit hazy. Haziness decreased over the next weeks. The procedure was painless and I found it quite interesting. Surgeon talks you through the procedure and was quite calming. It took approx 5mins per eye. The organization is very professional, I believe they have the latest equipment. Staff are excellent and helpful.

Severance Hospital

I am writing honestly and frankly to warn many from rash acts to visit this clinic and many others in Seoul. Do not fall for colorful stories of those who tell you that Korea has good medicine. Everything here is set up to pump money from foreigners, that’s absolutely it. Repeated receptions of specialists are delayed, heaps of unnecessary examinations are assigned. Like if you have a sore leg, then until we check your stomach, we can’t make a diagnosis. A person pays initially about 2 thousand dollars, but this later turns out to be not enough, you have to pay more and more, for the measured pressure, for measuring your growth, it is not clear why you should pay pressure if the same apparatus is in front of the office for everyone. In general, I came here with pain in the right hypochondrium, and have already paid 4 thousand dollars and I have not yet passed any really necessary examinations. I've been here for 10 days. Ultrasound and CT were done and they say that the results will be ready in two weeks. A person understands that he has already spent a lot of money and has not received any information, in the hope of spending everything that he has left. But it’s advantageous for them not to examine you in-depth, but only superficially to give you repeated and repeated appointments of doctors who just talk with you, you complain of pain, they listen to you nod your head and that's it ... Continuing to pump money out of you, while you will not have them. For that, they say that they are very sorry, and they say that you should go home for more money and then go to them to continue the examination .. People, believe me, I didn’t write it out of anger, it’s reality ... act like me ....

What is the level of medicine in South Korea?

Healthcare is the key development sector of the Korean government. The Korean authorities are convinced that care for the citizens' health should be an absolute priority of state policy and spend about 1 billion a year for medical tourists attraction.

According to Mark Britnell, hospitals dominate the health system. 94% of hospitals are privately owned.

Why is South Korea trendy for medical tourism?

South Korea is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from Russia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and US prefer treatment inSouth Korea to other places.

Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. About 1 mln international patients travel to Korea annually. So South Korea is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.

South Korea is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 40% on services in South Korea compared to European countries or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.

What hotel services are provided here?

In South Korea, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults.
