The patient was treated of arrhythmia

Excellent and prompt service. They told (without insisting) which hospital and which doctor to contact. Initially I planned a survey in South Korea, but on the recommendation of the Bookimed coordinator, I went to the Italian clinic of San Donato, to Dr. Carlo Pappone, and I have no regrets. Special thanks to Anton Volvak and the representative of the clinic San Donato, Julia. Paid directly to the clinic (after all procedures), the price is the same as reported by an employee bookimed. Bottom line: I recommend this service.
