"The sister was very kind to me"
5 50Reviewed 24 Nov 2017 Verified user.
Treatment Received: Eye Specialist Consultation
I had an eye infection for a long time and visited this eye specialist in Spain. I thought it was a very good clinic, and the great reviews I found online were accurate.

The sister was very kind to me, and we spoke about everything that I should do. There were no follow-ups because I returned to Qatar after my holiday. The only problem I had, was that I couldn’t find the medication they prescribed at the pharmacy.
