    I had assumed that conducting MRI could tell me if there were malignant lumps in my chest, but you could not. The attending physician recommended a biopsy and mammography, but I just wanted to do the MRI, so that I'm actually no smarter than before...

    A colonoscopy in the USA is unacceptably expensive for a self pay patient. There are no acceptable alternatives in the USA. Medicorp offered a superior service, totally affordable, in a modern facility. I felt safe, secure and totally cared for on every side. My recovery was smooth and I was even given a cab ride to and from my apartment. The physician explained her training, medical school in Hungary and internship at Tulane University in the USA. I will continue to receive as much health care as I can in Budapest. This service provided perhaps the best health care I have had in my life, including private spaces without other patients around me- all for 616.00 dollars!
