Would like to thank Eveline who was helping me with my Assistance Package. I think I would had been lost without it. She made me feel comfortable and she has good English. Would like to thank all the staff and Dr Piotr Rataj for brilliant job. Also Anna who I was speaking to through emails was really helpful and responded to everything I needed to know.

From personal experience, the clinic is well run and staff at the clinic seem to be highly competent and professional. My selected treatments were implemented efficiently and I am already only after few days, pleased with the results. The surgery caused only very minor discomfort, such that I did not even need to use the pain killers provided. The clinic is to be highly recommended!
