I visited the clinic 10/31/18. Very dissatisfied with the work of the coordinator Irada. The car that carries out the transfer to the clinic arrived almost an hour late and, accordingly, I was late for the first visit to the doctor. She made me an appointment with the doctor.

I turned to Bookimed in order to assist in the selection of a clinic for a general diagnosis of the whole family of 4 people. We responded very quickly, the coordinator Ostap Bondarenko immediately contacted us, who helped us in choosing the clinic. Ostap was very polite, attentive. We stopped at Medipol and do not regret at all. Then we were led by the coordinator of the clinic Irada, who organized a free transfer to us (hotel / clinic and back), stayed in a guest house, three meals a day ... Everything was clearly observed upon arrival at the clinic. Irada helped solve all the problems that arise ... We were very lucky with the translators Atajan and Ainura. The guys were very polite, helpful and patient. They helped us get our tests and the conclusions of doctors in Russian and English. THANKS TO ALL THE CLINIC WORKERS, BOOKIMED WORKERS ..!

The collaboration with dr. Eugene Nazarenko was spot on. He was very professional, reassuring, patient, and very well advising us and he had replied very quick so we could arrange a life changing operation for father in less than 2 weeks. My father has been treated already and he is on his way back home with his life saved, and he states that he received the best care ever. Amazing experience. Thank you Eugene !

star star star_border star_border star_border

I have retina detachments issues therefore I applied this group of individuals. When we agreed there was one professor the one week prior to my arrival we retired and I was offered Dr. Shaudig whom i eventually never met. On meeting in the reception I was advised that said professor was ill today. So I was routinely and e consumer,inglese inspected by a couple of young 1doctors who told me nothing new in the end. The story cost me min 1000 Euros. For just nothing. It could look funny that such cases still occur in the 21 sr century in Western Europe. I was promised a report on my case from the Professor but I’m still looking forward to enjoy it. This circus took places in a Hamburg 28.11.17. Think twice everyone. Not all the gold that glitters

I went to Liv hospital to do laser vision correction with the femto lasik method. However, I was not able to do this operation. The doctor who examined me found a small chance of 1 in 5,000 of the occurrence of a complication after the operation, and refused to do the operation. This is a brief description of my trip. Now I will tell in detail. I came to Istanbul for the second time to see a doctor to do a laser vision correction. The first time was in October 2018, but then I needed to strengthen the retina with an argon laser. Strengthening the retina was successful, and now my retina is in good condition. And the laser vision correction was postponed to December 2018. When I arrived in December (I am writing about this trip now), the doctor already knew that I want to do a laser vision correction. However, the operation was canceled. I do not understand why the doctor did not warn me about the cancellation of the operation earlier, in October? He could have examined me in October using his instruments. I specifically singled out a week in December for this operation, but the operation was not done. On the other hand, this doctor has a strong positive side - for a modest fee, he gave me quite a lot of time and attention. First, he examined me with his instruments, where he works. The devices showed that the situation with the right eyes is uncertain - it is unclear whether it is possible to perform an operation, or not. Then the doctor examined me several times with the same instruments, analyzed my images for a long time and discussed the problem with the nurses and the nurse. It took a few hours. Then the doctor said that my situation was not quite normal, and I contacted my colleague who works at American University Hastanesi, if I remember the name correctly. In this place recently appeared some new ophthalmologic apparatus, which is considered one of the newest. And the doctor arranged for me to do an additional examination there on this device free of charge in order to clarify my borderline situation. Then came the negative point: the doctor said that my situation is borderline, and if I have an operation, there is a small risk of complications on the sclera or on the cornea, I did not understand exactly. If there are complications, another operation will be needed. Therefore, I have one day to decide whether I agree to have surgery despite the risk. I thought until the morning, decided to have an operation and reported it. However, after that the doctor invited me to his place, talked about the fact that he would not take the risk, and as a result refused to do the operation. I do not understand, if the doctor in any case decided not to have an operation for me, why did he ask me to think one day and make a decision? In addition, if I can’t do the femto lasik correction, why haven’t I been offered an alternative - the smile method, the implantation of phakic lenses? Why didn’t the doctor say a word about these alternatives? I myself asked about phakic lenses, but the doctor and the staff were very busy at that time, in parallel with me the doctor was still taking other patients, and I did not receive an answer to the question. This is the description of my trip to Liv Hospital. Next, I will look for another doctor to do a laser vision correction.

I conducted an eye examination and an operation to strengthen the retina with an argon laser at Liv Hospital. My operation was successful, I feel fine. Therefore, I am pleased with the treatment at Liv Hospital. From the positive points about the hospital, I can say the following. I have a good impression of the doctor who examined and treated me and his colleague who also examined me. In my case, the hospital organized a free transfer from the airport to the airport. Of the shortcomings I can name a few. First, translator Laysan did not do her job well because she did not translate everything I said to the doctor. When I asked a specific question - "Why should I not remove redness from the eye?" or "How long the eyes will recover after surgery" - she did not transfer them to the doctor. Instead, she herself began to say something to me, sometimes in a not very polite manner. When I asked to find out if the doctor could recommend me suitable glasses, she again did not want to transfer the doctor. After each of these questions that I asked, I had to persuade Leysan to make her translate them into Turkish and. Sometimes it was possible to persuade in a minute, sometimes she argued with me for a long time. This manner of communication had a bad effect on the quality of medical care, because of her I did not have time to discuss with my doctor some details concerning my health. In fact, my communication with the doctor was difficult. For a fair review, I note that Lysan did not always do this. Once she spent her time on purpose and helped me find out what I did not have time to ask the doctor during the reception. But still, translation difficulties were significant.

The patient was treated of melanoma
star star star star star

Surface melanoma was detected in November 2016. A deep excision was carried out in the Kiev oncology center at Verkhovinaya Street. The thickness of melanoma in Breslow is 0.038 mm. In a year and a half, the histology was rechecked in Israel. After rechecking, applying with help to this resource, Constantine offered to undergo examination in the clinic of Turkey, in Istanbul. The clinic is called Liv Hospital. The glass and blocks were rechecked in Turkey. Almost everything coincided with Israeli data (0.68 mm thickness, 0.7 mm Israel) and 1 mitosis was detected. Translator Madina, who accompanied us all the time, just umnichka !!! In all delves into itself. You can all ask her again, she will ask the doctor if you do not understand something or have additional questions before the examination. Two doctor's consultations are included immediately in the cost when you pay only the first - one before the examinations and the second after. It was also possible to ask for other health problems and get advice. There are almost all doctors there. If you want to check on other issues - take with you all the available documents. I was also examined for gynecology, as in Ukraine they put dysplasia of the cervix. The diagnosis was not confirmed in the clinic of Turkey. At the moment, they said that the BSLU does not need to be done and every survey was painted for every 3 months in Ukraine. We thank Constantine and his colleague Julia for their assistance, as well as assistance in organizing a free transfer to Istanbul.

The patient was treated of retinal detachment in San Raffaele Hospital
star star star star star

I am writing my impressions of visiting the Italian clinic of San Rafaele. Everything was organized through bookimed. I did everything for the first time and there were concerns whether I got on a dubious site?!? But to our surprise, which was very pleasant, thanks to consultants with bookimed, we were admitted to the clinic at a convenient number for us, and we called more than once about the translator and our escort in the clinic. As a result, we met with a consultant translator near the clinic without any problems. At the reception was a clear translation of all our problems on the retina. Were at the Department of Ophthalmology. The doctor examined very carefully. I attracted two more doctors for the necessary computer research during the appointment. The attitude is very attentive and not superficial. We learned a lot of new and interesting information about a sore eye .... By the way, for the money, we paid only the cost of the consultation itself in the clinic. We want to express our deep gratitude to the bookimed employees and to all for the assistance and assistance rendered! you are all just great guys !!!

The operation is beneficial for them from the financial side in spite of this, they value their reputation, THANK YOU

Starting from the planning stage of the operation, Konstantin provided all the necessary information about the clinics, the choice was from three cities, he consulted promptly on all issues, was constantly in touch, thank you!

Israel

  • Foreign patients do not need a visa to get treatment in Israel.

Disadvantages

  • The prices are significantly higher than in other Asian countries. However, the cost in top eye hospitals in Israel is on the same level than in European ones.
  • Political situation. The conflict with Palestine and Arab countries (United Arab Emirates, Iran and Syria) is one of the reasons why many people do not request to Israeli clinics.

What should a patient pay attention to choosing top ophthalmology hospital?

  • Accreditation. An important criterion in choosing a medical institution is its compliance with international standards. Appropriate certificates guarantee high-quality treatment and patient care. It is necessary to find out if the medical center you are interested in, has a license to provide the medical services that you need.

Best eye hospitals in the world usually have 2 worldwide known accreditations of medical institutions:

  • JCI (Joint Commission International) accreditation;
  • International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
  • Specialists. The success and effectiveness of treatment depend mainly on the qualifications of the doctor.

When you choose a clinic, take notice if there are such specialists who can provide highly qualified help in the treatment of your disease.

  • Equipment. Best ophthalmology hospitals in the world are equipped with all necessary technologies for the highest accuracy of the treatment.

Where can you find the best eye treatment in the world?

The most common and the most effective type of ophthalmology treatments is laser surgery LASIK. Ophthalmologists of medical centers in Germany, Turkey, India and Israel perform this type of laser surgery with a success rate up to 95%.

Best eye treatment option. LASIK surgery for eye treatment.

What are the advantages of the LASIK vision correction?

The benefits of the vision correction with LASIK are:

  • The surgery is safe. Best ophthalmologists observe patients for a long time before and after the procedure. Observing helps doctors to prevent complications after the laser surgery.
  • Suitable for treatment of all types of visual impairment. If a patient has no contraindications, then laser correction can restore vision almost at all the most common degrees of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism,
  • Suitable for patients of any age. Patients aged 18 to 55 are the optimal candidates for this procedure.
  • The quickness of operating. The operating time of the laser surgery takes a few seconds - 1 minute. The rest of the time is spent on preoperative procedures and takes 10 minutes per eye.
  • The absence of pain at all stages of the operation. The ophthalmologists instill anesthetic drops in the eyes, which block pain sensitivity. A patient has only a feeling of pressure at some stages of the surgery.
  • The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Within an hour after the operation, a patient may come home.
  • Quick recovery of vision. 2 hours after the operation a patient can evaluate the first results of laser correction of vision. During 1 week, vision is stabilized.
  • Longevity of the operation results. After the laser correction of vision, the shape of the cornea persists for whole life. If a patient does not have progressive myopia, the result of the operation remains for many years.
