    Everything was straight forward and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Although most of the people did not speak english well there was a guide who came to help translate and describe all the papper work. The guide was present if I had any question during the whole procedure, which for me took 1h20min and I was very thankful for that.

    I recommend this place!

European Health Centre is located outside of Warsaw, around 25 minutes away by car. There are signs by the road directing to this hospital. There's a lot of space for parking by the hospital. It is an old building that has been renovated to a high standard. It's located literally in the forest, so being there is very calm and pleasant. The equipment is high tech, state-of-the-art and modern. Staff were very friendly and professional.
