Patients usually have to wait around 6 months for the bone graft to settle before the implants are implanted.

    Verified Review This review was provided by a patient that booked using the MEDIGO platform. It was submitted through our internal review system and is 100% genuine

    March 2017

    The clinic promised me the result of a genetic test with a written comment from a doctor. And at the end, I got a result written in German, with technical terms incomprehensible to any patient, and with no comment from the doctor. I spent around 1500 Euros for nothing. This clinic is not reliable.

    **Klinik Hirslanden's response**
    We thank the patient for this useful feedback, and we apologise for taking longer to deliver the results to the patient in the language of their choosing. We have since been in contact and have delivered all results in English to the patient, both from Hirslanden and from the laboratory. We hope the patient is now fully satisfied, and we thank them for choosing us.

    Best regards,
    Klinik Hirslanden
