During the pandemic, and partial lockdown in the country, ophthalmology services were suspended. And most countries were under lockdown too. I came across while browsing. At first i was not convinced enough, thought it was a scam. But i was desperate as my brother was completely blind, i travelled all the way to Istanbul. The drivers were very nice, good service, well on time. The hospital staff were very welcoming, and the translator was great. Very much appreciated with the support from, otherwise i won't be to make it to Istanbul. Special Thanks to doctor Mesci, very great job. Definitely i'm going back next year for another surgery. Thanks again

Review on epilepsy treatment. The patient from Kazakhstan had the medical trip in 2018.

I am 63 years old and I was diagnosed with epilepsy in Kazakhstan. I had attacks every 20 days. There is no epileptologist at home. Then, thanks to Bookimed and Alina Chestneyshaya, we contacted Dr. Antonio Russi at Teknon. All the time she has been accompaning us with consultations, contacting the hospital in Spain and the doctor. I came to Teknon (Spain) in October 2017, Dr. Antonio Russi just returned from the conference, and immediately took us. We discussed my case and agreed to start the diagnostic tests in the morning. I had MRI, EEG, HIE, PET (FDG), etc. Dr. Russi always answered all my questions. During the HIE I took the pills, I tried 9 different drugs, and only 2 of them were appropriate. Now, I'm taking these pills at home. In general, my hospital stay was at the highest level. Even after diagnostic tests, Dr. Russi contacted me via Skype, asked some questions, gave advice, and answered my questions. I appreciate Dr. Antonio Russi, he is a God-given doctor, a true professional! A master! I wish him and his family to be healthy and happy. His approach and correctly chosen drugs help me to live with almost no epilepsy attacks. I advise him everyone. Мне 63 года, на Родине, в Казахстане мне поставили диагноз "эпилепсия". Каждые 20 дней у меня были приступы. У нас на Родине нет специалиста – эпилептолога.Затем, с помощью Bookimed, благодаря Алине Честнейшой, которая посоветовала именно доктора Антонио Русси и клинику Текнон. Всё время она нас сопровождала с консультациями, связались с клиникой в Испании, в частности с доктором Антонио Русси. Я была в клинике Текнон (Испания) в октябре 2017 года, доктор Антонио Русси только прилетел с конференции, и сразу же, практически с самолета, навестил нас. Мы поговорили об о всём и договорились начать диагностику утром. Утром он объяснил всю процедуру. Мы прошли МРТ, ЭЭГ, ПЭП, ПЭТ (FDG) и т.д. Всегда отвечал на все поставленные вопросы чётко и граммотно. Во время ПЭП нам подобрали таблетки, мы пробовали 9 разных препаратов, из которых нам подошло 2. Сейчас дома я принимаю эти таблетки. В целом, во время нахождения в клинике всё было на высшем уровне: сервис, и тд. Даже после диагностики он со мной контактирует по скайпу, задает вопросы, даёт советы, отвечает на вопросы. Огромное благодарность выражаю Доктору Антонио Русси, он врач от Бога, настоящий профессионал! Корифей своего дела!!! Здоровья ему и его семье, счастья, успехов. С помощью его методики и подбора правильных препаратов приступов практически нет. Всем советую обращаться к нему.

The arrivals and examination at the clinic were top notch, highly qualified specialists and the latest equipment. We will fly to this clinic for repeated examinations, as it should be observed in dynamics. I also really liked the accompaniment and the translator in one person (Vladimir). Прибывания и обследование в клинике прошло на высшем уровне, высококвалифицированные специалисты и новейшие оборудование. Будем прилетать в эту клинику на повторные обследования, так как надо наблюдаться в динамике. Также очень понравилось сопровождение и переводчик в одном лице ( Владимир).

The patient was treated of keratoconus in Memorial Şişli Hospital

The clinic has a welcoming atmosphere, but the wait for each appointment and an interpreter is sooo long. Doctor A. Ozkaya proved himself to be a professional, answered all our questions, the corneal transplant operation for my one-year-old child was rather quick and effective at the moment. We came across a very polite and excellent Bookimed coordinator Jan, he helped on any even minor issue, contacted the clinic, helped absolutely with everything! You have wonderful employees, prosperity and all the best! В клинике располагающая атмосфера, но ожидание каждого приема и переводчика - ооочень долго. Врач А.Озкая проявил себя, как профессионал, отвечал на все наши вопросы, операция по пересадке роговицы моему годовалому ребенку прошла довольно быстро и на данный момент эффективно.

Нам попался очень вежливый и отличный координатор Bookimed Ян, он по любому даже незначительному вопросу помогал, связывался с клиникой, помогал абсолютно со всем! У вас прекрасные сотрудники, процветания вам и всего наилучшего!

The patient was treated of cataract in Confraternitaet Private Hospital

Everything was fine. Bookimed was very kind to find me an appointment pretty short notice in Vienna. The surgent was very professional. The only thing I would have preferred was to pay with a credit card. I had to go to an ATM and pay cash.

The patient was treated of strabismus in Noviy Zir Hospitals Group

There was a slight misunderstanding in the treatment process; after a month, there was no apparatus for assessing visual acuity. At the consultation, we managed to ask all the questions we were interested in, but the consultation went very quickly, and in general we are satisfied. В процессе лечения было небольшое недоразумение, не оказалось, спустя месяц, аппарата для оценки остроты зрения. На консультации мы успели задать все интересующие вопросы, но консультация прошла очень быстро, а в целом мы довольны.

The patient was treated of eye injury in Noviy Zir Hospitals Group

We applied to the clinic for the purpose of examining the eye for the subsequent sending of documents to a German clinic to determine a treatment plan. We are not satisfied with the quality of the examination in the clinic. Although it was agreed that the survey will need eyes after a thermochemical burn and several operations. Honey. the staff did not know how to examine such an eye. For 900 UAH we were given visual acuity and eye pressure of a healthy eye. True, we refused to drip and look at the fundus in the healthy eye. The diseased eye was left without examination, they said that they had encountered this for the first time. В клинику мы обратились с целью обследования глаза для последующего отправления документов в немецкую клинику для определения плана лечения. Мы не довольны качеством обследования в клинике. Хотя было оговорено, что обследование понадобится глаза после термо- химического ожога и нескольких операций. Мед. персонал не знали, как обследовать такой глаз. За 900 грн нам сделали замер остроты зрения и глазное давление здорового глаза. Правда, капать и смотреть глазное дно в здоровом глазу мы отказались. Больной глаз остался без обследования,они сказали, что первый раз с таким сталкиваются.

The patient was treated of retinal detachment in Asklepios Hospital Barmbek

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
