"It was a wonderful experience. Very well looked after"
5 50Reviewed 03 Jul 2018 Verified user.
Treatment Received: Gastric Balloon
I had a gastric balloon the doctor was very professional and patiently explained things from start to finish. We corresponded several times before I arrived in Bulgaria and I felt perfectly safe and at ease.

The hospital is state of the art pristine clean and the staff are wonderful, my surgery went off without a hitch. Less than 24 hours later and I feel great.

It was a wonderful experience. Very well looked after. Very inexpensive compared to Australia. I’m very happy with the result so far.
