Good experience but soon to tell.

Qunomedical did a good job of recommending the service and helping to narrow my choice of a clinic. I was fairly pleased with the procedure however I feel their equipment could have been a little more comfortable. Their injections of the anesthetic were very painful, however necessary they were. I feel that with a little more time with the injections, giving more injections covering a smaller area, might have made them a little less painful. The equipment for patient reclining and resting of th... Show more

Friendliest end to end assistance

James from Qunomedical got in touch with me regarding my hair transplant. He helped me with the quotation and getting the appropriate number of grafts from the doctor. He assisted me in choosing clinics, flights and scheduling the date of surgery and their overall approach to go above and beyond to help people like me. I had to delay my surgery for some personal reasons and they were extremely helpful in helping me choose the next convenient date even though it was months away. I couldn't have a... Show more

I felt comfortable and welcomed by the Hotel staff and Doctors, so overall it was a good experience. However, I still feel to this day that based on the results of the Transplant, that more could have been done for me personally as far as the amount of Grafts that were done. If I could right now, I 100% would have a second Transplant to better the results the second time round.

Stefans transplant journey

Amazing service. My consultant with me every single step of the way. From flight to operation day to every step after. So so supportive and genuinely nice. Doctors made me welcome and were very polite and respectful to me. Operation went very well and was very comfortable. Even my driver was so kind to me, carried my bags and everything.. can honestly say I have a new confidence. Life changing. I'd go back for another in a heartbeat

Amazing results from a great team!

I clearly recommend Qunomedical and Smile Clinic in Turkey. I had an overall positive experience during the process and I am very happy with the results as well. I was a little skeptical at first but then the doctors were reassuring and also friendly. They guided on the process, after care and even followed up after. Thanks again
