The patient was treated of acute lymphoblastic leukemia
My close family relative was diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia a year ago at age of 26 and he needed a bone narrow transplant as the very last option to save his life. This procedure is not available in Ukraine and we spent weeks searching for the most affordable clinics with a good reputation. On January 12th, a few minutes right after visiting the website I was reached by Aleksey Berkovets from Bookimed.
He was an extremely polite, helpful and very professional. I really liked that compare to other services he didn`t promote any specific clinic or country, he gave me an options to choose from.
After only one short week on January 20th Dmytro was landed in Istanbul to start his treatment in Medipol Clinic!!
Thank you for your constant support Aleksey! You are much appreciated!
