The clinic was visited by a Medigo team member

The Bayindir Hospital in Icerenkoy is located in the Asian side of Istanbul, near the Bostanci M4 Metro Station which is about 10 minutes away. It’s a lively area, so not the best to get to by car. Inside the clinic was nice, the place was bright and clean and made me feel very comfortable. All the equipment and facilities at the hospital seemed to be modern and everything was well cared for and clean. I had a pleasant experience with the staff, many of whom were multilingual.

    Eşim Tunçay Şanlı 2014 yılından bu yana ileri kalp yetmezliği nedeniyle Uzman Dr. Yavuz Uluca’nın bakımı altındaydı. Tıbbî bilgisine çok güvendiğim Dr. Yavuz Uluca eşimi hayatta tutmak için elinden geleni yaptı. En ufak bir sorunumuzda gece veya gündüz fark etmeden kendisine kolaylıkla ulaşabildik, güler yüzü ve şefkatli yaklaşımı ile bize her zaman teselli oldu. En son anda bile bizi doğru yönlendirerek, ‘elimizden gelen her şeyi yaptık’ diye hissedebilmemizi sağladı. Kendisine minnettarız. Ayrıca eşimin bu süre içinde geçirdiği zatürree sırasında da Uzman Dr. Muharrem Tokmak’ın yakın ilgisi, doğru tedavisi o süreci de atlatmamızı sağladı. Eşimin vefatından sonra da beni telefonla arayarak, mesaj göndererek destek olan bu iki kıymetli doktorumuza ve doğru müdahale ile eşimin burun kanamasını durduran Uzman Dr. Berna Yayla Özker’e yürekten teşekkürü borç bilirim. Her ay bizi karşılayan, sıcak ilgi gösteren Sayın Ragıp Bulut ile Sayın Ümit Yılmaz’a ve EKG çeken teknik ekip ile yatarak tedavilerimiz sırasında etrafımızda pervane olan hemşirelerimize de özellikle teşekkür etmek istiyorum. Allah yollarını açık etsin!

  • Thorsten Ringel, July 2015


    I came to the hospital with the hope of immedetly help for my horrible pain. I had my complete Medical Attest from germany, that I am under chronic pain with me and which medicin I have to take how often and when. Well, my painkiller was not enough for the severe pain in my leg and spine. A woman who well speak english and work for the Hospital promised me when I wait, that somebdy will direct give me apainkiller thats stronger than mine. a professor will take a look to the MRT I had made there 1 week ago ca.The doctor insisted to make another MRT from my spine, before he could not giveme any Medicaments. This is no medical practice I know. If you see the complete medical history of a patience, you could had give him a emergency injection for the first pain. And then everthing else. First he said he will give me a sedative and a painkiller while making the MRT (Midazolam and Fenthanyl) I had to discus and discuss until I finally get it. But what was this. I felt nothing. I am sure they injected a placebo. Because the MRT maschine went broken and I could get up short after it. What would be with Midezolam in a dosage between 7.5mg and 15 mg for a strong man like me IMPOSSSİBLE. After they put me in a room and said this could take some hours.I called me friend to pick me up. Also he rekognize me as totally sober and all by myself. So I did not get Any painkiller or sedative. I went to the next Nurse to get rid of the intravenous access on the back of my hand. While we want to go suddendly the englishspeaken woman made us offers I could get Opioid Painkillers (stronger than the one I get from my doc for years) when I take a bed overnight. And many other offers. It was rediculous. When she saw that I am done here in that hospital she wanted that I paid a bill for a not made MRT because the maschine get broken, medicin I have not even recieved. And a talking with a doctor about a former made MRT what is in the price ıncluded normally. Not Again for me. I spoke with the Amerikan Hospital and told the story and she promised me I willl get directly first aid if I come tomorrow and show my history.
