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...

The level and quality of medicine is quite high. The doctor is fully competent. I liked the work of the coordinator and the manager, directly in the clinic. It was not possible to be in the wards. Уровень и качество медицины достаточно высоки. Врач в полне компетентен. Понравилась работа координатора и менеджера, непосредственно в клинике. В палатах быть не довелось.

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.

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 !!

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 breast cancer
star star star star star

I have breast cancer and I went through chemotherapy in Moscow. Six sessions have passed. It was very difficult to tolerate these procedures. A doctor in Kazakhstan said that this is enough, it is necessary to switch to tableted chemistry. And Moscow offered to continue doing chemotherapy. Opinions are divided. It was necessary to find a third party. I accidentally found your site on the Internet. Ekaterina Koliko wrote very quickly. The benevolence of Katyusha was immediately arranged towards her. She asked me what I would like to go to. I said that I want to go to the Severance clinic in Korea. Katyusha approved my choice. I sent all the necessary documents and Katyusha quickly redirected everything to the clinic. They began to wait for the invitation. For some reason (and for what I already knew in the clinic), there was no invitation. I am very grateful to Katyusha that she was in touch all the time, supported me, gave me hope. We arrived in Seoul in the morning, we were met by a transfer, brought to the hotel. After lunch, they were already in the clinic, I began to take tests. Constantly with me was one of the translators. Girls translators are great fellows, these are Lida, Olesya, Sofia, Tatyana, Alena. Any question could be addressed, they always prompted. They are professionals. Always with a smile, polite, with enormous patience, and most importantly, they understand that they work with a special audience, with people who did not come to rest. Someone to find out the diagnosis, and someone to do the operation. Thank you so much to the girls. The clinic was impressive. Doctors are professionals. The equipment is super. I got the opinion of a third party, it coincided with the opinion of a doctor from Kazakhstan. I was prescribed a prescription, I bought medicines at the pharmacy and started drinking on arrival home. I also want to write about Darina, who was engaged in transfer (the transfer to the clinic was very convenient and met and carried out), the selection of the hotel was also always in touch, and if I had any questions, she quickly answered them. I want to say that I am very happy for getting to know BOOKIMED, professionals really work there, and most importantly, they are not indifferent people. I am grateful to the Almighty and all who were near me. And the words of the doctor gave me inspiration and inspired great hope, for the sake of these words it was worth a long way to go. Once again, many thanks to all. У меня рак груди и я проходила химию терапию в Москве. Прошла шесть сеансов. Было очень сложно переносить эти процедуры. Врач в Казахстане сказал, что этого достаточно, надо переходить на таблетированную химию. А Москва предлагала продолжить делать химию терапию. Мнения разделились. Надо было, найти третью сторону. Я совершенно случайно в интернете нашла Ваш сайт. Написала, очень быстро откликнулась Екатерина Колико. Доброжелательность Катюши сразу расположили к ней. Она спросила мои пожелания, куда бы я хотела поехать. Я сказала, что хочу в Корею, в клинику Северанс. Катюша одобрила мой выбор. Я отправила все необходимые документы и Катюша очень быстро все перенаправила в клинику. Стали ждать приглашения. По каким то причинам( а по каким я узнала уже в клинике), приглашения не было. Я очень благодарна Катюше, что все время она была на связи, поддерживала меня, вселяла надежду. Приехали в Сеул утром, нас встретил трансфер, привезли в отель. После обеда были уже в клинике, я стала сдавать анализы. Постоянно со мной был кто то из переводчиков. Девочки переводчики большие молодцы, это Лида, Олеся, София, Татьяна, Алена. С любым вопросом можно было обратиться, они всегда подсказывали. Они профессионалы своего дела. Всегда с улыбкой, вежливые, имеющие огромное терпение, а самое главное понимающие, что работают с особой аудиторией, с людьми, которые приехали не на отдых. Кто то, чтобы узнать диагноз, а кто то чтобы сделать операцию. Огромное девочкам спасибо. Клиника впечатлила. Врачи профессионалы. Оборудование супер. Я получила мнение третьей стороны, оно совпало с мнением врача с Казахстана. Мне выписали рецепт, я там же, в аптеке приобрела лекарства и по приезду домой начало пить. Еще хочу написать о Дарине, которая занималась трансфером (трансфер при клинике, очень удобно и встретили и проводили) , подборкой отеля, тоже всегда была на связи, и если у меня возникали какие либо вопросы, она быстро на них отвечала. Я хочу сказать , что очень рада, за знакомство с BOOKIMED, там действительно работают профессионалы, а самое главное не равнодушные люди. Я благодарна Всевышнему и всем кто был со мной рядом. А слова доктора окрылили меня и вселили огромную надежду, ради этих слов стоило проделать такой большой путь. Еще раз огромное всем СПАСИБО.

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!

The patient was treated of liver cancer
star star_border star_border star_border star_border

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

Fate had to visit the Quims clinic, which we learned about from the coordinator Catherine (Kiev). She kindly provided information and consulted in good faith during her stay in Korea. We were met at the airport, brought to the clinic. Polite translators worked with us. Quickly diagnosed. We took into account the wishes for acceleration in time of treatment. The conditions in the ward are acceptable. We were surrounded by the constant attention of medical staff. Communication with the Son and Khan processors, the whole atmosphere of the clinic gave us hope for a speedy recovery and a positive outlook on life. Thank. Rahmet from Gulnara and Zamira. Волею судьбы пришлось посетить клинику Квимс, о которой мы узнали от координатора Екатерины (г. Киев) Она любезно предоставила информацию и добросовестно консультировала во время пребывания в Корее. Нас встретили в аэропорту, привезли в клинику. С нами работали вежливые переводчики. Оперативно провели диагностику. Учли пожелания по ускорению во времени лечения. Условия в палате - приемлемые. Мы были окружены постоянным вниманием медицинского персонала. Общение с процессорами Сон и Хан, вся атмосфера клиники вселила в нас надежду на скорейшее выздоровление и позитивный взгляд на жизнь. Спасибо. Рахмет от Гульнары и Замиры.

Good afternoon! Stay in the clinic was excellent. clean, comfortable, understandable. check-in about 2 hours. I didn’t go there with the aim of being treated - therefore I am not writing about the result. a doctor’s appointment is quite expensive, paid separately, lasts 5-10 minutes gives recommendations and that’s all - be healthy) the clinic does not have any plastic surgery or everything related to the unproven treatment methods for unrecognized diseases (osteochondrosis, dystonia) Добрый день! пребывание в клинике прошло отлично. чисто, комфортно, понятно. чек-ап около 2 часов. не ездил туда с целью лечится - поэтому про результат не пишу. прием врача - достаточно дорого, платится отдельно, длится минут 5-10 дает рекомендации и все - будь здоров) клиника не делает никакой пластики или все что связано с недоказанными методами лечения не признанных болезней (остеохондроз, дистония)

After my husband insistently said that it would be necessary to do so, so this, then after that we were heard.

Were examined in a Samsung clinic with a diagnosis of vitiligo, which our local doctors set for us. The treatment was not required because the doctors of the Samsung clinic did not find any vitiligo in the child. The clinic provided us with a free translator who accompanied us everywhere. The staff is very polite and attentive. Many thanks to the staff of Bookimed! Special thanks to our honey coordinator Maxim Voloshin who helped us when choosing a clinic and always stayed in touch. Проходили обследование в клинике Самсунг с диагнозом витилиго который нам поставили наши местные врачи. Лечение не потребовалось так как, никакого витилиго у ребенка врачи клиники самсунг не обнаружили. Клиника нам предоставила бесплатного переводчика, который везде нас сопровождал. Персонал очень вежливый и внимательный. Большое спасибо сотрудникам Букимед ! Отдельное спасибо нашему мед координатору Максиму Волошину который помог нам при выборе клиники и всегда оставался на связи.

Everything is good and even healthy, only expensive. Everything is on the level, staff, doctors, service, and so on. Of the proposed chambers was 500 bucks a day. Procedures are also not cheap, but everything is qualitative and operational, people know what to do and how. Всё хорошо и даже здорово, только дорого. Всё на уровне, персонал, доктора, сервис, итд. Из предлагаемых палат была за 500 баксов сутки. Процедуры тоже не дешевые, но всё качественно и оперативно, люди знают что и как делать.

Questions and answers

What is ophthalmology?

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of eye diseases, partial and complete vision loss.

Pediatric ophthalmology is a subdivision of ophthalmology that studies the characteristics of children's vision. The child’s vision, unlike that of an adult, is constantly changing. Pediatric eye doctors study the features of a child’s vision changes and related pathologies.

What does an eye doctor treat?

Ophthalmologists in Republic of Korea correct not only vision impairments but diseases of the eyeball, eyelids, lacrimal organs, conjunctiva, and eyepit as well. 

The most common eye disorders an ophthalmologist can help you to cope with are:

  • nearsightedness (myopia) is a visual impairment when the image is focused in front of the retina and the person cannot clearly see distant objects
  • farsightedness (hyperopia) is a visual impairment when the image focuses behind the retina of the eye and a person cannot clearly see close objects
  • conjunctivitis — inflammation of the mucous membrane of the eye (conjunctiva)
  • cataract — a clouding of the lens of the eye
  • glaucoma — increased eye pressure causing visual impairment
  • astigmatism — a violation of the shape of the lens or cornea.

How is the eye disease diagnosis carried out?

At the initial appointment, the ophthalmologist in Republic of Korea conducts an examination and computer vision diagnostics. To determine various visual impairments, the following eye tests are carried out:

  • autorefractometry (a measurement of the refractive power of the eye)
  • keratometry (assessment of the curvature of the cornea anterior surface)
  • non-contact measurement of intraocular pressure
  • corneal topography or photokeratoscopy (scanning the surface of the cornea)
  • ultrasound of the eye (necessary to assess the condition of the membranes of the eyeball, allows diagnosing changes in the retina and vitreous body, determination of intraocular neoplasms)
  • ultrasound biometry (determination of the length of the eye, the thickness of the lens, the depth of the anterior chamber)
  • pachymetry (measuring the thickness of the cornea using ultrasound)
  • direct and reverse ophthalmoscopy (assessment of the state of the retina, choroid, optic disc, macular zone based on examination of the fundus)
  • biomicroscopy (a method that allows examining the anterior and posterior parts of the eyeball with different lighting and image sizes). The study is carried out using a special slit lamp device.
  • gonioscopy (examination and assessment of the anterior chamber angle).

  • PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) — myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism correction using an excimer ophthalmic laser
  • lens replacement surgery
  • cataract extraction with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation
