Feedback from our clients

Thx to You
I want to thank the staff at uamedtours for their excellent service. I was asked to write a review, so I am writing it. At first I was afraid to go from Antwerpen to a country where there is a war and they say that it is in complete disrepair. I was assured that this does not correspond to the truth. I decided to take the risk, the purpose of the trip - medical care, and no barriers at the border at the airport. I flew to Boryspil, was met by Dmitry and took me to Kiev to the pre-agreed hotel. He took care of all organizational matters. I arrived in the morning and had time in the afternoon for an appointment at the clinic. My companion waited for me there and after the appointment he drove me to my hotel. He left me a telephone with a possibility to call him in Ukraine and if it was necessary. After the treatment at the clinic all that was left was to fly home.

It could have been better
I flew to Kiev for vision treatment at the Novy Zir Clinic. We discussed everything in advance with the girl Olga. I was met at the airport and escorted to the hotel, I don't even remember the name, but not a bad budget option. The hospital was literally just a few steps away. Therefore there was no problem. The problem was the language. The doctor spoke mediocre English, and if it were not for the receptionist I am not sure that we understood each other. I had to call Olga and solve this issue, because I was promised that the doctor speaks perfect English. At my next appointment I was met by Mr. Parkhomenko who continued my treatment. Three days later I was operated on for my glaucoma. Although I hoped to do without it, but the doctor convinced me. I recovered at home, but I really feel better. Had it not been for the incident with my first doctor, I would have said everything was fine, but now I have to check and recheck the work of the staff. Keep that in mind!
