Our hospitals accept our patients as guests, not as customers, and constantly improve themselves to provide the best service to their guests. There is a unit within the hospital that serves International Patients, and this unit deals with all foreign patients. The health problems of our patients are evaluated by our professor doctors who has international recognition. In order for our patients to receive comfortable service as long as they receive inpatient treatment, they stay on special floors and private rooms reserved for international patients. Our patients are provided with IPM (International Patient Center) interpreters in every field they may need such as registration, hospitalization, examination, laboratory, radiology from the moment they enter the hospital. Our guests are informed about all processes before, during and after treatment. Treatment plan, duration of treatment and cost of treatment are the same as in the letter of offer. Any procedure under the name of adjunctive therapy cannot be handled without approval of the patient himself, patient accompanist (if any) or patient advisor unless there is a negative improvement in the patient’s health conditions (if there is no life-threatening case).
