The idea of travelling to another country to have surgery can be a daunting one. I wasn't sure if it was the right thing to do or whether I should save up more money and have the surgery in the UK so I naturally had nerves about the whole situation. That was until my initial email query was picked up by Erika who then became my primary contact at Medical Travel Czech. Every question I had whether it was about hotels, the surgery, the recovery, the currency, how to get to and from the airport; everything that I needed to know, Erika had the answers for me whether it was day or night. She was a constant source to reassure me as I planned every detail of my trip and with every response, I felt more confident that I was making the right decision in going abroad for surgery.

From the moment I landed in Prague, I was looked after. I was picked up at the airport, taken to the door of my hotel, met in person by Erika the next morning and then escorted to the clinic. After the surgery, I was out and about within a day or two with Erika checking in by email to see how I was doing right up until I left Prague and even after that she has remained in touch to see how I have progressed. Erika was a complete star and my words are insufficient to describe how helpful she was throughout the process.

I found the service professional, discreet and great value for money. Knowing what it was like before I decided to go through with it, nervously reading reviews and questioning whether it was a good idea or not, I can now say without doubt that I would highly recommend going abroad to have surgery.

A little over four months later and I am happier and healthier than ever before, all thanks to Erika and Medical Travel Czech.

I think my experience here in Prague was very pleasant. There was good communication all around and I felt welcomed from the moment I came off the airplane. I appreciated the fact that Martina came to the hotel to accompany me to the clinic. I thought it was a very nice gesture especially when I was so nervous about the surgery and although I am a nurse myself and used to clinical environment, it can be very scary to have surgery so many miles away from home. At the clinic everyone was polite and spoke well english. I was taken very good care of and I can not fault the service in anyway. It was a fantastic team of doctors, nurses, phlebotomist, dietitian and receptionists. If I was to have surgery again in Prague I would as I had a very positive experience. Thank you so much.

Arranging my operation at the clinic was easy to do, I received regular emails from my representative who assured me I would be well looked after as I was travelling alone. It was great not having to worry about transfer to hotel when arriving in Prague and to be met and escorted to the clinic on the day of surgery. It was nerve wracking when tests were being carried out prior to surgery and it would have been nice to have known in advance what tests were to be done, but staff was very nice and reassured me at every point.
The Dr and nursing staff were great and whilst there were some small communication issues that was easily overcome. I would recommend medical travel and Iscare to anyone considering weight loss surgery.

As you know other a month has transpired since my surgery and I have lost a little over two stone so far. I hope the success continues, I have felt extremely well and not suffered any problems with the initial dietary requirements.

The overall experience was to be fair as I imagined as I had spent a long time nearly a year organising my trip, it was important to ensure my home life was covered thus allowing me to focus only on the trip, I admit I was worried but Jana and yourself have always been there to answer any questions I had.

For the record I would recommend that patients are met by your company as this elevates any anxieties felt, my only disappointing experience is the waiting time from arriving at the hospital 07:30 in the morning up until being seen which was about 10 ish, in a uncomfortable waiting room with no information on why the delay and what exactly you was waiting for. However, once the process of seeing the doctors and nurses began it all happened very quickly once accepted and then being on the ward taken down for surgery.

Despite the occasional language barrier which could be a problem, the nurses post operation were extremely helpful and caring.

My thanks again to Jana and you.

I'm back home and I think everything is healing well. Just wanted to say a very heart felt "thank you" for getting speedy answers to all my questions and being there should we have needed any support whilst in Prague. We will be coming back next year but for a holiday this time to enjoy the sights I wasn't able to see on this occassion.  If you have any enquiries from anyone in the UK looking to visit Prague for weight loss surgery at the ISCARE clinic do not hesitate to supply them with my email address and I will happily supply them with reassurance that the clinic and the surgery...and of course your hospitality are all fantastic.

Everything has been going well. I have been resting and trying to sleep as much as possible. Slowly I have been able to drink more fluid and eat soft foods like apple sauce. I am feeling better today and will probably return to work tomorrow.

Had it not been for your help and guidance and total support throughout I think I would have found the experience as manageable as I did.  You went above and beyond the call of duty in being kind and helpful. The receptionists and the surgeon at the clinic were extremely helpful and communicated well. So far I am losing weight, I have lost 6 kilos in 4 weeks but I am struggling with food. I still cannot eat anything beyond soups and sloppy mashed food but I am coping with it well. Thank you for the help and kindness your support  - your answers to my many questions have made it all happen. I hope when I return in February I can report great success.

I had a gastric balloon fitted. The procedure was painless and well ordered, though I was waiting for some time prior. It is not without discomfort afterwards, but the clinic was excellent.

I felt the staff were, all, very friendly.  The nursing staff looked after us well, the doctors carried out their work in a calm, and sympathetic way. I feel everyone tried to make my stay as pleasant and calming as possible. Although I have no plans for any other surgery I would not hesitate to recommend your clinic to family and friends in the future. Thank you all for making my stay such a pleasant one.

I was very well taken care of, nurses try their best to communicate with me in English. The clinic is very clean and modernized. Great experience!
