...

in total. I was looked after all the way through and now that Iam back home Iam looking forward to the results. Qunomedical have been excellent, all questions have been answered and going forward they still want to connect and see how you are getting on and seeing your results.

"Coree from Qunomedical made this whole process easy for me! Thank you again for the help! Also to the staff at the Florence nightingale hospital in Istanbul!"

Coree from Qunomedical was my advisor and she made this whole process easy for me!. The pick up at the airport was quick as the driver was waiting already. Went straight to the hospital for payment and blood tests,we had advisors called Anna and Yuliya who had great English running through the process of what is going to happen. Afterwards I checked into the hotel which was a minute away from the hospital! Then rested for

...

the evening.The next morning at 8 I returned to the hospital for the consultation and procedure. The Doctor was very good and designed my hairline with a marker pen and then the procedure started straight away.The technicians were fantastic. The only painful part were the injections but they weren't too bad..it all went very smoothly with no problems but the only thing was it felt a little bit rushed and also the little English but that takes nothing away from the outcome!. Anna then ran through the details for hair care and it was simple and straight forward. The facilities were brilliant and clean,I returned to hotel to rest and then the next day I returned for the first wash and getting my medication then before you know it, I was back in the UK! Thank you again Coree for the help! Also to the staff at the Florence nightingale hospital in Istanbul

"Operation went well & check up following day was good."

Pick up from airport went slightly wrong as instructions said goto transfer office. But Ulger the guy was at the vodafone stand, ended going to ulger office. I end up getting in

...

wrong transport but lucky me the guy rang just as leaving airport so was a bit stressful. Did not have consultation was just giving blood test then next day was told at 9pm was having operation at 8.15 am next day after chasing them up not very professional in my books:(Operation went well & check up following day was good & transport to airport was prompt:).

"The facility was adequate for the service."

The facility was adequate for the service, the biggest issue other than the registering nurse no one spoke any English even the doctor spoke very little it was a bit frustrating. Oh they could

...

have numbed it up a bit before all of the injections that would have made a big difference. The Qunomedical review questionnaire is a bit premature as the results are still yet to be known, I am only two weeks into it. If I get the end results I am expecting great but I am still on the fence to say if it was good or a bad experience.

"The hospital was clean and state of the art and I felt a lot more comfortable than I thought I would - a really good experience overall. The Facebook group is an excellent idea as it allows queries flow from people in the same situation ."

Hi , slight delay on the flight over but the driver was waiting in an easy to identify area in arrivals. Straight to the hospital where a blood sample and payment was taken and then walked to the hotel (1 min walk no need for a lift), was told to be ready for 12:40 the following day. Hotel was nice, large room and comfortable bed. Got a call the following day that they were ready and asked could I go earlier which I could. Walked to the hospital more blood taken and then into meet the doc, quickly went through what I was looking for and what they could do and agreed on what the procedure would involve. Then went and had head shaved and into the operating room . The anaesthetic injections

...

were sore but not as bad as I thought to be honest and the operation started with the taking out of the grafts. Was then given a small snack and the surgeon arrived in to complete the markings for the implants and then the technicians completed the implants. After the procedure was given a meal in the hospital and told to be back in the morning at nine (I had wanted an early start as my flight was early). Arrived back to the hotel with all painkillers, antibiotics etc and settled in to bed for the evening. The first night is by far the worst and I would advise to take a painkiller asap after the op (I didn't for a few hours - bad mistake) and have food and water ready to go at your hotel. Slept relatively well and back to the hospital the morning after and then went through the washing procedure. Only issue I would have is that the washing materials are above the limit for carry on luggage (I got away with it but could be an issue). Overall the staff were welcoming and excellent at communicating what I need to do, there were two ladies who done translations where needed and were friendly . The hospital was clean and state of the art and I felt a lot more comfortable than I thought I would - a really good experience overall . Th calls and contact with Qunomedical were very good, the Facebook group is an excellent idea as it allows queries flow from people in the same situation .

"The hospital was very modern and spotless! Overall it was a very good experience."

I was picked up from Istanbul airport and taken straight to the hospital for a blood test, the hospital was very modern and spotless! I was met by Uygar who explained everything to me and stayed with me during the blood test before showing me to my hotel. The day of the procedure went as planned, again

...

Uygar was on hand if I needed everything. After the procedure I was given a meal and medical advice along with the medication I would need. The next day I was back at the hospital to be shown how to clean and treat my hair after the operation. Overall it was a very good experience. Julia from Qunomedical was very helpful and there was no pressure to book anything or be pushed into a certain type of procedure, ultimately thats why I decided to go with Qunomedical. The only recommendation I would give is that potential patients are given a full explanation of what to expect during the procedure and the potential side effects.

"The whole experience was fantastic and the facilities and staff were probably better than anything i have ever experienced. If i ever had to organize any further treatment abroad I will be definitely using Qunomedical again."

I was picked up at Attaturk international the guy from Florence Nightingale was waiting for me, I had no waiting around. I was taken straight to the hospital for my consultation and completed my paperwork. I was then directed to my hotel were I was staying for the next couple of

...

nights which was right next door to the hospital and it was lovely. The whole experience was fantastic and the facilities and staff were probably better than anything i have ever experienced. Ryan from Qunomedical researched and organized everything for me. Overall this was a fantastic experience. If i ever had to organize any further treatment abroad I will be definitely using Qunomedical again. Ryan kept in touch with me throughout and even afterwards to see how i was getting on, I cannot think of how anything could be improved. The service and professionalism was the best I have experienced from Qunomedical.

"The staff done their best, they were waiting for me in the Airport, they were friendly. Thanks Emma at Qunomedical for your communication."

The staff done their best, they were waiting for me in the Airport, they were friendly. I particularly recommend Bakir the driver, the nursing staff were ok; but the use of mobile phones should be band in the

...

clinical area(s). And they should not be wearing nail varnishes in the clinical areas. They took blood from me but they didn't explain what for...and then I went to the hotel its not far from the hospital...the next day at 7.30 am I met with doctor Ali. He was really nice and he put me at ease before the procedure and that reassured me and I am hoping for good outcomes. Thanks Emma at Qunomedical for your communication.

"Extremely friendly staff, and very professional. Would recommend Qunomedical to anyone."

Extremely friendly staff, and very professional. My only criticism is that most staff don't speak English, but this doesn't effect anything during the procedure. Qunomedical has very friendly staff, and are extremely helpful. Would recommend them to anyone.

The doctor explained everything in detail and answered all my questions. I also followed the doctors advice to rather do the surgery in 2 session.

"Their doctors are perfectionists!"

It was an awesome experience through out the whole trip. One word to describe them is that their doctors are perfectionists! Thanks to my new hair, I am now very confident approaching people at work, which I couldn't in the past years. You all are very helpful!

"The whole experience was awesome, from start to finish it was more than I could of asked for. There was nothing that they didn't cover. The overall experience was amazing."

From when I first arrived in the airport, I was picked up in a clean and new van which brought me too the hospital to get my blood test. Afterwards they dropped me off at the hotel. At the hotel the driver assisted me at the reception to check me in. The next day I made my own way to the hospital, as it was less than a minute walk up the road. When I arrived the doctor went through the procedure and asked, if I had any

...

expectations that i would hope to achieve and we made the best choice that would make myself happy and what the doctor felt was best for me. During the procedure I panicked as it was my first time getting a procedure done but the nurses came straight away with a relaxer and reassured me that i would be fine, I calmed down shortly after and the procedure went on. After the procedure i was given a PRP treatment and was also interviewed which led to me getting another PRP as a gift :-) When I was finished, I got all the medication I needed and the doctor was happy to let me go. i returned to my hotel and was leaving the next morning to return home so they asked me to come back early the next morning for a quick check up and showed me how to wash my transplanted area. Everything was on schedule and so professional if I ever need to get anymore done in the future ill be definitely going back :-)

I lost my nervousity already at the airport where I was picked up by a very friendly driver. We drove straight to the hospital for the first blood check. All

"The hospital is very clean and very modern."

I was picked up from the airport on time by welcoming driver. He took me directly to the hospital for a blood test. Once the blood test was done he dropped us off to our hotel.

We were picked up the following morning at 7.45am from the hotel and taken down to the hospital for the surgery. I met another friendly

...

man Uyger who I had already conversed with before I flew out to Turkey. Uyger was very helpful, polite and professional. He took me to the place where my surgery was to take place.

I met Dr AbdulAziz Balwi who again I found very polite and professional. He assessed my current hair line and advised the number of grafts and how he will be carrying out the procedure.
The whole surgery was satisfying with friendly member of staff. I was picked up again 2 days later for the first wash and was even offered to return for further washes until I was in Turkey.
The hospital is very clean and very modern. The facilities and rooms of the surgery looked spotless and really professional.

"Hospital facilities were FAR better than UK NHS."

Email contact with hair transplant clinic dept reception is needed regarding queries and questions - I did ask when leaving but I was given phone numbers instead.
Hospital facilities were FAR better than UK NHS - at par with private hospitals as BUPA.

Patient care was very good, most staff spoke English OK - a few didn’t. During my 3rd

...

step - the transplantation - I had entertainment via both nurses having heated discussion in Turkish!
Pick up drop off airport/hotel/hospital all very good service - nice big people carriers.
Treatment generally very good - done mostly by nurses as Dr. overseeing several patients at a time - acceptable as this keeps costs down regarding the treatment.

More than two weeks after the operation back part of head - Step one - donor area - is still a bit sore and quite painful to touch.
Also feeling very tired and sleepy at times still affecting my work and personal life but cannot contact clinic with ease as mentioned above - so this is my one complaint and issue. Have followed instructions as set out in post-care package.
