    Imed- Levante was excellent. They were very friendly and caring, and efficient. The facilities were modern and appropriate. I travelled from Chile to Imed.

    Olga Zhukovskaya and Ruben del Campo, the International Program Managers who welcomed me on my arrival, gave me excellent support. They were friendly, knowledgeable and always accompanied me on my visits and post surgical therapy, very professional. Dr. Ferragut, who operated on me was very kind, personable, and an excellent doctor in whom you trust immediately. Always willing to explain and answer questions before and after surgery. The operation, although I had complications and potential risks, was a success and I had a rapid recovery. I can only recommend it.

    All this was organized for me by MEDIGO, who I am very grateful for, and am particularly grateful for Don Giovanni Bono who followed up on my case, and for being the ''link'’ between me and the hospital since I decided to fly from Chile to Benidorm. MEDIGO handled my case so efficiently - full support, phone calls, reception of exams and X-ray ... etc, that gave me a lot of confidence. I can't recommend them enough.
