An interview with Dr. Gözü

What is your experience with international patients?
I am very proud to be able to treat patients from all around the world and hope to meet many more amazing people that I can help.

What do you love about your job?
I love being able to help people and seeing the joy on their faces when they see the results.

Why do you think international patients come to you?
I think my patients trust me and believe in what I do. I am very proud that they choose me as their doctor.

Can you tell us about a memorable treatment with which you helped to improve a patient's life?
One of my patients had serious back problems due to the weight of her breasts. She was unable to stand straight as the weight was affecting her posture. So she wanted to have a breast reduction. After surgery she was able to wear what she wanted and all her back problems went away.
