Repair of a Inguinal Hernia. I chose to go privately so that I could have the operation done on a day that suited me. I was seen by the consultant on Friday evening and had the operation the following Tuesday morning.
I was charged 70€ for the consultation and 3,020€ for the complete treatment, private room, operation, lunch and dinner...everything. Not having had any experience before with private practice I have nothing to compare with, but it was worth the cost for me....this time!
I chose this hospital as it was the nearest one to where I live. My experience was very good and perhaps even better than expected. Everyone I had contact with was Portuguese but spoke English well, and every single step of my day with whoever dealt with me, explained why this or that was being done, which I appreciated very much. Everyone was warm, friendly, helpful and efficient.
