All things were edtablished calcuated, very good
Lets be honest a hair transplant isn't really the most pleasurable experience but I could not have imagined my procedure going any better. I thought Qunomedical are a great way of finding top hospitals.
Lets be honest a hair transplant isn't really the most pleasurable experience but I could not have imagined my procedure going any better. Smile Clinic were beyond amazing, I felt totally at ease and every aspect of my time in Istanbul was carefully planned, from the quality of the transport to the friendliness of the staff. The private hospital was immaculate and the genius skills of Dr Erdogan's and his team I don't think can be improved upon. I am now in recovery back in London, following all my instructions by the letter. I really cant recommend them enough. I thought Qunomedical are a great way of finding top hospitals. Great service.
The whole experience was TOP CLASS.
The whole experience was TOP CLASS. I have already left my review on the smile hair and qunomedical facebook pages. I do have a few observations which may help you in the future. The Doctors have perfect English However the other team members appeared to have very little. Three times i asked for a drink of water before someone understood. Also i was having abdomen pains due to constipation while the hairs were being placed into my head but no one understood. Also they continuously spoke, joked and at one time a fella was singing in Turkish. I would suggest that there be one English spoken person in the room at all times during the procedure. The taxi driver was nice and polite but again not much English and we Irish like to chat and joke and ask questions. It is the busiest and slowest airport we were ever in. It took a full 2 hours from when we stepped out of taxi to reaching the gate. The gate closed as we arrived. 1 minute more and we would not have got on plane. trust me we did not delay as we had been warned about the airport. We spoke to several people who missed the fight the day before and the airline made them pay 125 euro for new tickets. Our flight was over sold according to the girl on boarding card counter but there was still approximately 8 empty seats on our flight. I am sure many people were left behind. I suggest that on your return you need to be collected from the hotel 4 hours before flight. Small thing but they the doctor and clinic appeared to have my phone number incorrect before we went as i did not get any communication from clinic beforehand. I realised this the day of the procedure when the Doctor went to whats app me my photos.
Overall you get the feeling this is a good friendly place to work Dr. Erdogan has an easy rapport with client's and staff which comes across in the general environment. Id have no issues in recommending Quno to a friend
I felt the professionalism and friendliness of the staff at Smile was excellent. They communicated clearly and concisely how the overall procedure would be carried out. One caveat I will mention is that I did not get the overall coverage of my hair that I would have liked. This was only communicated to me during the operation. Hence my grafts are dense at the front yet I still have a bald patch at the back. This will mean a 2nd trip. If this was communicated better I may have chosen to have a deeper hairline. Or discussed the possibility of a different distribution pattern. My last point. I would like to give huge thanks to Dr. Erdogan and the team, I suffered a dizzy spell and almost fainted post op. Naturally, i was worried as i had travelled alone. The team was fantastic and went as far as to get me food, a sandwich and a sugar drink from across the road. I also stayed back an hour for an IV drip and some monitoring and check-ups. Overall you get the feeling this is a good friendly place to work Dr. Erdogan has an easy rapport with client's and staff which comes across in the general environment. Generally very good to deal with. Id have no issues in recommending Quno to a friend
Ich hab mich wohl gefühlt in der Klinik und das war für mich das wichtigste. So genugt geredet ich kann jedem der nur über ne Behandlung nachdenken tut die Klinik und Qunomedical ans Herz legen
Im großen und ganzen war ich sehr zu frieden das eine oder andere hätte ich mir anders gewünscht,aber ich würde es jedem empfehlen und es selber wieder in Anspruch nehmen. Dr Erduan und sein Team sind echt toll gewesen zu mir ist echt ein toller Arzt. Das Hotel war gut und ssuber,das Personal war leider nicht so aufmerksam wie ich es mir gewünscht hätte. Die Sache mit dem Fahrdienst hat auch ganz gut geklappt die eine oder andere Zeit Verschiebung aber echt alles okay . Ich hab mich wohl gefühlt in der Klinik und das war für mich das wichtigste.jeine Hinterhof kascheme!! Ein richtiges Krankenhaus das war mir auch wichtig das ich ja schon Vorerkrankung habe,falls doch Komplikationen auftreten das man schnell was machen kann. So genugt geredet ich kann jedem der nur über ne Behandlung nachdenken tut die Klinik und Qunomedical ans Herz legen. Wenn meine Haare jetzt nocht da bleiben wo die sind ist alles super Alles super ihr wart immer für mich da,hab mir alle meine Fragen beantworten mir die Angst genommen mir Sachen übersetzt ihr wart immer erreichbar für mich (Danke) ihr hab mir ein gutes Gefühl gegeben....
I felt comfortable in the clinic and that was the most important thing for me. Talked enough I can recommend Qunomedical to anyone who only thinks about a treatment does the clinic.
On the whole, I was very satisfied with one or two things I would have wished for differently, but I would recommend it to everyone and take it up again myself. Dr Erduan and his team have been really great to me is really a great doctor. The hotel was good and ssuber, the staff was unfortunately not as attentive as I would have wished. The thing with the driving service has also worked out quite well one or the other time shift but really everything is okay. I felt comfortable in the clinic and that was for me the most important.jeine backyard kascheme!! A real hospital that was also important to me that I already have previous illness, if nevertheless complications arise that one can quickly do something. So enough talk I can recommend the clinic and Qunomedical to anyone who is just thinking about a treatment. If my hair stays where it is now, everything will be fine. Everything super you were always there for me, I have all my questions answer me the fear taken me things translated you were always reachable for me (thanks) you have given me a good feeling ....
From the time I landed I was made to at ease and taken care of.
From the time I landed I was made to at ease and taken care of. The clinic was really nice and very clean and the staff at the clinic very professional and polite. Easy to talk with on the phone and very helpful
the dr and his team were very clear on what was happening step by step and I was kept well reassured.
I was picked up straight from arrival and taken straight to my hotel . I was then picked up morning after and taken to hotel where I met the doctor who consulted me and was very clear in explaining the full procedure and course of action before been taken through and started all through the procedure the dr and his team were very clear on what was happening step by step and I was kept well reassured. The hospital was very clean professional and well looked after Jenny was fantastic from start to finish dealt with all my questions Fantastically and was always quick to respond , made it very easy ,
I got good info before the operation, and i did also like that we could chat at Whatsapp if i did have any question.
Well. All was doing very good. But the nurses had three mistakes, and did never tell me what happened, it sounds scary, and they just talk Turkish, so would be better if someone could explain. they had also problem to understand the different of up/down, left/right. But im happy with all other stuff. I got good info before the operation, and i did also like that we could chat at Whatsapp if i did have any question. Qunomedical did it perfect

The surgery itself was rather uncomfortable but no one is to blame for this
I was picked up from the airport by a driver and the driver wasn't told that my sister was on a different flight and we had to wait for her; he didn't seem very pleased. Other than that the transport was fine. The next day, I was picked up on time and brought to the clinic. The clinic was clean and comfortable, staff was nice (incl. the interpreter). There were two of us getting surgery; so what I didn't like so much is that everything was discussed in front of the other patient (incl. payment and results of the medical examination). What could also be improved is that the doctors should listen more to what the patients want. I told them that I wanted a natural hairline (and I showed them pictures of what I looked like 10 years ago) but they insisted on their way and now I've got a perfect hairline which doesn't look very natural (I am still curious about the result though and not unhappy). The surgery itself was rather uncomfortable but no one is to blame for this. The pickup for the check up didn't work and was a bit stressful; I did change hotels and lived on the European side with no parking in front of the hotel so in the end I had to find a taxi driver myself which was a bit chaotic. The clinic reimbursed me for the taxi ride, however, so it wasn't too bad.

It could not have been better!
It could not have been better, I had been really optimistic as the price sounded to cheap and all the collections from airport and from hotel and to clinic, it worked like a swiss watch, exceptional, staff in clinic BRILLIANT, not all of them had english but some had perfected it, for my part my turkish was terrible. I don't believe you could have done any better, perhaps your choices of clinic, which, I am sure took a lot of research has made you a definite success,,
