Yasin made it very easy for me. I am very happy with qunomedical. Its a lifechanging decision to get a hairtransplant so it was vital the whole experience went well.

I was picked up at the airport, extremely busy airport so Yasin made it very easy for me. He kept in touch with me all through the 2 days which was fantastic. Everything was very punctual. Extremely happy I am very happy with qunomedical. They found the hospital that suited my needs perfectly. Its a lifechanging decision to get a hairtransplant so it was vital the whole experience went well. Maybe the aftercare could be a little better but overall im delighted

I feel professionalism can be better through politeness and a little smile

From airport pick up to the hotel and till the hospital everything was excellent, I feel professionalism can be better through politeness and a little smile, Facilities were clean and comfortable, but during the surgery of the first half was painful because I was expecting a quiet environment inside the room but while performing surgery there was a lady who was very loud in talking to other colleagues and laughs while performing the operation and there was a lot of in and out in the room with door banging constantly, after lunch second half was perfect. I would like to see a doctor before the technician and they should be barred from there personal talks, so the focus does not move anywhere else, which ultimately reduce the chance of any accidents.

But again, just because I have already experienced the trip, it all makes sense now, and I have my confidence in your and Istanbul Aestethic Center firms. And it was a lovely experience.

I arrived to Istanbul, however couldnt find my name on any of the signs when exiting the terminal. I contacted Quonomedcal and Sophie helped me out by reaching the people that were supposed to pick me up. Within the next 10-15 minutes they found me and was taxied to my place of stay. The surgery was great, which took about 6 hours. They were able to collect 3000 grafts. I was operated on by 4 people, including the nurse from the quotation that did canalling. However, the quotation mentioned that there was supposed to be a post-op (or a pre op) check up by the doctor, whom I never actually seen. The pre-op check was done by the nurse. Which is all fine, you d just need to edit your quotation. On the 2nd day of post-op they performed the first wash, after which I check out from the hotel, was dropped at the airport and everything is great. The only issue was that I was not provided fully with information, so I had to ask things only when I guessed to ask them. Things like should I be waring a hat, what is the headband for, what was this medicine i was given for, etc. Overall it has been very neat and professional. But the health managers should be little bit more explainatary with details and procedures. If i were to have another trip somewhere, I wouldn't have any questions. But just because it was my first trip, many things were little confusing. Like how the payment procedure goes, what is included in the price, what is not. It just felt odd that taxi and hotel are prepaid. I always had a feeling it was a scam of sorts. So instead of reacting to a customer questions, I would advice your health managers to be pro-active, and go in detail about what is going to happen related to the trip (instead of just giving links to information about what FUE is, etc) But again, just because I have already experienced the trip, it all makes sense now, and I have my confidence in your and Istanbul Aestethic Center firms. And it was a lovely experience.

If you have any doubts about having surgery of any sort give these guys a go and you will not be disappointed I promise.

I was a little nervous about having hair transplants done abroad but I am so glad I did, minhaj who dealt with me after my enquiry did everything for me to make my journey simple to finding my flight to journey and the excellent hotel, to then be passed onto the qunomedical team who took the lead to make my treatment relaxing, aftercare to my journey home, If you have any doubts about having surgery of any sort give these guys a go and you will not be disappointed I promise.

I specifically appreciate the fact that the doctor gave me all the time I needed to discuss with him and make up my mind - which, at the end, enabled me to go for the transplant.

The process was very easy - from pick-up at airport to hotel and the hospital. Service quality of hospital staff and medical doctor was extremely high - I was provided the doctor's private number to check with him at any time after the operation. Having not been totally sure about the operation myself when arriving in Istanbul, I specifically appreciate the fact that the doctor gave me all the time I needed to discuss with him and make up my mind - which, at the end, enabled me to go for the transplant. As of now, I can only write about the actual transplantation and my experience before and after - if the results are satisfactory of not can only be told in about 9 months time from now. I contacted Qunomedical first from Thailand where I found a local clinic and wanted to check whether their quality is good - I appreciated the fact that Qunomedical provided me with their knowledge and experience free of charge without being sure that I will finally book a trip with them. But this investment paid off - at the end, I decided to go for a treatment in Istanbul, facilitated by Qunomedial.

Everything was perfect just as I had hoped.Airport pick up Hotel check in all spot on.Staff were friendly. At med center service was prompt and the staff courteous friendly and Professional.I wouldn’t change anything..The only thing I would Add is to be able to talk to. Somebody who has been through treatment. I phoned a local politician who had gone public and it reassured me after watching a TV programme on people who had gone to Istanbul for alternative cancer treatment. Finally a big Thank you to Jenny Who helped me no end on my Journey Keep up the Good work !!

I am now recovering from both procedures and I just hope to see a great result soon. Qunomedical helped me in any way possible. Special thanks to Julia!

I was picked up from the Airport,spent the night at a nice hotel (4 stars). Then the transplant was done the next day. Then had rhinoplasty the next day. I spent one night in the hospital then went back o my hotel for my recovery. I spent the next 6 days at he hotel. The staff were ready to help if I needed anything. I am now recovering from both procedures and I just hope to see a great result soon. Qunomedical responded quickly to email/whatsapp messages. They were also transparent about themselves and the hospitals they work with. They are also ready to help in any way possible. Special thanks to Julia!
