Procedure: a Step by Step Guide for our International Patients

INITIAL INQUIRY AND APPLICATION

INITIAL INQUIRY AND APPLICATION
The first step is to go to the “INQUIRY” page on this website, or, if you have already been diagnosed by a doctor in your home country, you should go to our “MEDICAL SECOND OPINION” page. To make an appointment directly, go to the “APPOINTMENT” page. Just fill in the form with your personal data, details of your condition or complaint, and your photographs or other medical data, as appropriate. We shall return to you as soon as we have studied your details, and provide you with all the procedural and cost information that you require in order to decide how to move forward.

INITIAL ASSESSMENT, HOTEL AND RESERVATION

INITIAL ASSESSMENT, HOTEL AND RESERVATION
Once our medical specialists have made an initial assessment based on the information you have supplied, and after you have taken the decision to come to the Group Florence Nightingale, we arrange your initial consultative appointment according to the date and time of your arrival from your home country. An advisor from our Center for International Patients will meet you at Istanbul Atatürk Airport or Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport, in front of the Information Desk, holding a placard with your name clearly displayed. We take the stress out of your trip by arranging your transfer from the airport to your hotel, and from there to the hospital. We can make all your reservations at a hotel or apartment near the hospital, at reduced rates.

After analysis of the results, including scans, echo tests, X-rays and other tests as required, the details of your treatment and / or surgery will be discussed with you, with the assistance of an interpreter.

AFTER YOUR OPERATION

AFTER YOUR OPERATION
The exact duration of your stay naturally depends on the nature of the operation. In most cases, patients are kept under intensive care or in-patient observation for a period of one or two days. You will be informed of all results and given a written report concerning your treatment, in order to assist in achieving the necessary follow-up in your home country. After final consultations, you will be transferred to the airport for a safe flight home. And our Center for International Patients will always be ready to continue assisting you and your family after your return home, if you have any queries or questions at any time in the future. We are always just a call, or an e-mail, away.
