The service that I received from Medical Travel was very good. You were very helpful with booking things and you made me feel comfortable in the morning before my procedure.

In regard to feedback on yourselves, you’ve been impeccable, helpful and  Conscientious. I felt looked after for the moment I was picked up at the airport to the time I left the clinic. It was very nice of you to come and take me to the clinic, and ensure all the paperwork was complete and that I was ok before I had my tests and then procedure. 
 
EGK clinic were great, it was abit of a whirlwind as I arrived one day and departed the next.
 
I was very pleased with everything. Weight loss is going ahead albeit my stomach has not competently settled down as yet, so although rapid weight loss has occurred, I do find I’m living on air and water. I’m sure it’ll settle down soon.

Thank you so much for your support through the process you really helped me. I thought the service I received from Medical Travel Czech was really good and I can’t think of anything I would improve on from a service point of view.

Overall the service was fantastic. If I was to suggest something it would be to remind people that if they are bringing a partner that it may be a good idea for them to bring their own refreshments as the wait for the procedure can take some time, Mark had thankfully had breakfast but he didn’t leave till after 5pm so it was a long day without a snack. Obviously this didn’t affect me as I was nil by mouth ha ha.

Your team of medical professionals, nurses are all the best!

You do provide the best customer service ever! Thank you for your sympathy, the result is not reflecting in any ways negative on the professionalism and the amazing care tour team provided at the clinic! On the contrary! I will carry on with treating the psychological cause of my food addiction/eating disorder with a psychologist and as a preventative measure to preserve my health will have a bypass or sleeve surgery. 

I know that people are feeling pretty rough the first few days after the insertion, that is why I am staying an extra day before flying back. I have to trust your instincts and advice on this one. I will be back to you guys in the future for sure (i am considering a breast lift/augmentation after the weight loss too) so I am not worried about missing the opportunity.

Have a nice afternoon and thank you for the fabulous customer service!

I am very satisfied with the care I received at EGK clinic after getting a gastric balloon inserted. Petra from Medical Travel Czech really helped me throughout the process and I’m looking forward to working with her for my other procedures in the future. The transfers and care from London to Prague have been fantastic. Highly recommended and very affordable pricing.

With the balloon it has been uncomfortable for the first 4 days, it is now easing off, but at night it can be unpredictable as I can put pressure on certain sleeping positions. otherwise all good. That’s very kind of you to ask, really appreciate your concern! I know this is too early stage but can you roughly guide me on pricing for Tummy tuck?

Thanks for checking in, I am feeling much better now and getting my energy back. I am managing to eat small amounts of solid food and I am only being sick around 1-2 times a day now. I find I am most uncomfortable at night but I hope this gets better.

The balloon is working brilliantly. I have lost 23lbs so far and have no issues with digesting food etc. I appreciate all your advice and will speak to my doctor about a prescription. Hoping to start back at the gym next week. I will let you know if I need anything.

Thank you for checking on me. I am back to work and it is absolutely fine .I am "full" all the time and not hungry, fantastic so far! I will be back with some questions also after x-mas. 

This was the best I 've done in the last 30-years for myself (except buying an expensive car last year..but that is bully... ) so yes, I am really fine so far with this all and will come back later. We will meet somehow when I'll be back to Prague, big thanks so far.

I’m not too bad at the moment. Didn’t feel great during the night but I suppose that’s to be expected. The clinic staff were all nice and helpful, especially the guy that talked me through everything. Taxi was waiting for me outside the clinic so I have just arrived at the airport. I really appreciate how helpful you have been over the past couple months with my many emails and it was lovely to put a face to the name yesterday morning.

 I have been doing really well since leaving Prague. I've had no nausea or vomiting from the second day after insertion. The only medication I have to take is the Omeprazole. Best decision I have made and you were a fantastic help through it all.

From initial contact with Medical Travel to getting the gastric balloon, I was supported along the way by Hana. I didn't feel any pressure in making a decision, just given the information to make an informed choice myself. I decided, after researching many other companies that Medical Travel had the feedback from others, and a strong gut feeling all would be well. After many different changes over covid, I eventually was able to book and get the procedure done. Hana booked an amazing hotel for a few days in Praha before the procedure, this was a bit of luxury!  The day of the procedure came, and I was transported to the clinic by car, and was welcomed at reception by Hana, and given time to reflect and decide the correct options for me. The clinic is very clean, and the nursing staff is very kind and friendly.  The procedure was painless, and after a night in the clinic, I travelled to the airport and flew home, do take care to check the covid restrictions of your home country though! Contact since the procedure has been good, and not intrusive. I know the support is there if I need it!  Here's to big losses and visiting a snowy Praha in six months time!

Thank you for assisting me and being patient and extremely flexible through a really difficult traveling experience during covid. The hospital is so clean and everyone from nurses to surgeon were all lovely and so professional.  The assistance you gave right down to transfers, hotel suggestions etc was amazing. Even the fact you were there to greet me at the hospital was a lovely touch. Great company, clearly my second time using yous due to the level of high service you provide. I wouldn't change a thing from start to finish. (Bar flying during covid!)

Hana, thank you for organising it. I feel good, a bit uncomfortable sometimes, but so far so good, had a good night sleep also. Thank you for everything. The day I flew back was rough, I thought I was dying, but I'm feeling good today, have no got sick since Wednesday and that's a plus. Feeling back to myself now, started solids as well, no sickness or cramping. My portion size is very small, it's definitely making me feel fuller, but I will keep an eye on it.

Travelling amid the pandemic has actually been very easy. I flew Glasgow-Amsterdam then Amsterdam - Prague. Glasgow airport was very quiet, not many shops open,  very few people there so everything was very straightforward. The plane was also very quiet , maybe 15 people. When we arrived in Amsterdam it was a bit busier but not like normal.  Much more shops open there. The flight from Amsterdam to Prague was almost full but i felt very safe as everyone was wearing a mask on the flight for the entire journey.  You can only remove mask if you are drinking or eating. Arrival in Prague fine but the airport was empty. Prague itself was very quiet , we were there for 6 days. Almost everything closed and only food available was take-away.  The city was very quiet but it was actually very nice , very safe , everyone in Prague is being very careful and wearing masks etc.  It was nice to be able to visit the astronomical clock , the bridge and other landmarks without any crowds. Nice and peaceful. Airport on return was completely deserted , only 1 shop open in the airport. Again , very safe , everyone wearing masks. Flight back via Amsterdam much quieter.  Flight from Amsterdam to Glasgow also almost empty.   I felt very safe the entire journey as the airlines take all necessary precautions. At the clinic itself for the surgery , was also very good , very safe. They take good care and make sure everyone is wearing a mask etc. I wasnt worried about covid at all the entire time i was in Prague. Hope this helps anyone else coming over right now and i hope that you and your family are well.
