Landing at the airport, a taxi driver with a sign of my name was waiting for me) immediately arrived at the clinic and passed the tests) the clinic is beyond praise! The new building, after repair, there was absolutely no feeling that you were in the hospital) this is a 5 * hotel, not otherwise) the staff is just wonderful, they tried to do everything for the most comfortable stay) the girl from the reception helped a lot, and the nurse who spoke Russian) after consulting the doctor, all fears and doubts disappeared by themselves, so the doctor inspires confidence) the operation was successful, only to remove the langet) before discharge, all medications were given, and recommendations for the recovery period after the operation) the next day I flew back to Ukraine) Varvara from the Bookimed care center helped a lot with changing the departure date) also Varvara and Lyudmila were always in touch and helped in case of any questions) Highly recommend! Medicine, staff, clinic-on top! I’m sure that I’ll return to this clinic)
