My overall experience was excellent and I would recommend anyone travelling to Prague to use Medical Travel.
My international representative Richard was very helpful and informative.
On the day of my procedure Richard met me and took me to the clinic. Everything went well, the doctor and the nurses was so kind, professional and spoke English very well. The clinic was clean, modern and well run and I would highly recommend your Clinic.
Thanks again for all you help !

From day 1 of getting in touch with Gynem we felt very comfortable, they are very helpful in every aspect. Our experience was fantastic and being in prague was fabulous, such a beautiful place. The whole team at Gynem were so friendly and professional. I recommend Gynem to anyone wanting that personal touch.

Our recent experience of Medical Travel was excellent. Before the visit regular communication was maintained with our representative, Anna. As we drove to Prague there was no requirement for transfer to the clinic. Clear instructions from Anna made finding the clinic very easy.
On arrival at the clinic we were met by a wonderful local representative of Medical Travel, Martina. She introduced us to the very friendly and welcoming clinic staff.
The service at the clinic was of the very highest standard as was the facilities.
The care shown by the medical professionals including the surgeon, the anaesthetist and the nursing staff was outstanding with nothing being too much trouble.
If you are considering any of the services offered, look no further than Medical Travel.
It was a truly excellent experience and the results of the procedure were of the highest standard.

IVF Egg DonationJuly 2014
We had a wonderful experience with Medical Travel Czech Republic during our donor egg cycle in summer 2014. We did a lot of research before choosing a clinic, and we always received quick and detailed answers to all of our questions. Our Skype consult with Dr. Mrazek was what convinced us to choose Czech Medical Travel; we could tell that he had gone over all of our medical records carefully and was providing his professional opinion, unlike some other clinics where they just seemed to want to sign you up quickly. Once we started our cycle, pretty much everything was taken care of by our fantastic client coordinator Martina, from the medications to the airport pickup to transportation to the clinic. All we needed to worry about were flights, a hotel, and what we wanted to do during our stay in beautiful Prague. The clinic itself is brand new and state-of-the-art, but small enough so that you know you are getting personal attention. Everyone except a few of the nurses spoke pretty much perfect English, and we received information every step of the way so we always knew what was going on and what the next steps were. The only small challenge was the time difference (6 hours for us from Canada), so before we arrived in Prague it sometimes seemed like forever before the next email came, but that was mostly because we were so eager to start our cycle and know how our donor was doing. We would happily return to Medical Travel Czech Republic and recommend it to others.

Hi I am writing this review as I guess like everyone reading this now you are thinking about going through IVF or egg donation abroad, like us we read every single review going to make sure we picked the right clinic for us.
Our brief history: We are from England, Age: both 40, 4 IVF attempts + 2 frozen
When we start this whole process we were very nervous about making the right choices and to make sure we were doing the right thing, we were impressed with the reviews online with GYNEM so we made our first visit to Prague to take a look at the clinic and was really happy with the service provided, we were picked up at the airport and taken to our hotel and picked up in the morning.
Martina is really kind!!!
The clinic by far was the most modern cleanest and helpful we have been too including the UK!!!
Our tip would be to stay in hotel in centre of Prague 1 and get a taxi to clinic as there isn't a lot to do in that area where the clinic is situated.
When we talked to the doctor we pretty much made our decision to go through egg donation with GYNEM straight away. He was really kind and helpful and told us all the information we needed.
The cost of IVF & egg donation is a 1/3 off what it is in the UK but all the tests & help wouldn't suggest this in fact I was so impressed with the level of service and help I'm surprised they can get away with charging so much for this in the UK!!!
Everything is anonymous & designed to make the procedures as stress free as possible for both of us.
To find a donor it only took two weeks to find a suitable match example; hair & eye colour weight &height specifications hobbies and education level of suited donor.
The morning of donation everything is organised like clockwork and hassle free and after 3/5 days when you go back in for implantation the staff couldn’t look after you any better.
We got to see the embryos when they were putting in and once done unlike the UK you get to rest for up to 45 mins after to let things settle.
I would certainly build in a holiday with your stay to chill out and take your mind off any thing you worried about also Prague is a lovely city with lots to offer great shops, restaurants & lots of history.
I am glad to say after our egg donation in Prague we flew back the day after and did a pregnancy test after two weeks which we were happy to find was positive and after a additional 2 weeks we had our first scan at 6 weeks and all was fine, both my husband and I are over the moon and looking forward to the rest of our life's. Hope this helps put your mind at rest.

With regards to the process, I will start from the beginning. As many people who goes under surgery, we are all concern where we are going to do it, and with whom we choose for the process, because after all our health in involved. I have to honestly say that we were highly impressed with your services, wiliness to answer every questions we had before the procedure even when I emailed you 10 times a day, you were always kind and provided the correct and proper answers.
As per the clinic, we could have not asked for a better service. The procedure in general was great and the post operation service we received was first class. Congratulations to the nurses of the clinic who were always very willing to assist and to attend to our needs.
As per my surgery (eyelids and chin liposuction) i suggested to have it with complete narcoses and the doctor insisted on doing it with local one, which I do regret because I could feel everything, even though i was under local narcoses the doctor had to put more several times. The pain was not unbearable, but very discomforting and if I personally had to do it again I would ask them to make me sleep and wake me up when all is done, and this would be my recommendation to all patients.
With my chin liposuction the doctor didn't tell me exactly when to expect as results on times. Now after 2 months, i have under my chin a tissue created under the skin which I have learned that is rather normal and to see final results takes up to 6 months, but i see that the tissue is decreasing and i an very happy with my eyes and my neck, it has been for me a complete change and i am very pleased with it. My recommendation to all patients is to do some research on what to expect after surgery and recovery times.
As per my friend, his experience with you and the clinic was also very gratifying. We have absolutely no complains, on the contrary, only compliments. His recovery was almost textbook - we followed the instructions from the doctor and staff to the letter.
Although we all want to look absolutely perfect after the procedures, everyone needs to realize that it takes time to achieve the results. The service was, however, excellent!
Feel free to post our comments and if you want to use me as reference i have no problems.
Wish you a very good day and once again want to thank you for your great service and last but no least, if we had to do it again or a different surgery most definitely would choose for your services.

I contacted Medical Travel after less than positive responses from other providers in the UK. From the first contact of asking whether a tummy tuck was possible to the final results of having the operation, the service has been exceptional. Martina gave me choices of clinics with prices, and also her recommendations. She provided all the information so that I could make an informed decision.
Martina arranged for me to be collected from the airport and I stayed in a small hotel near by. Prague is a beautiful city with lots to see and do. I'm glad I took a couple of days to look around and relax. As my husband was unable to travel at the last minute, Martina offered to come with me for the pre tests which helped settled my nerves. Everyone at the clinic was lovely, very friendly and answered all my questions that I had.
The day of the operation, yet again Martina offered to come with me for moral support but I decided to go by myself, and was well looked after. The clinic is spotless and modern. The staff friendly and supportive. I felt very much like a pampered princess, where nothing was too much trouble. The operation went smoothly and I was supplied with everything i need for a full recovery.
I would highly recommend both Medical Travel and the Clinic and would happily be contacted if anyone has any questions.

I have had my eye bags removed a week ago and already I am really pleased with the results. I spent a long time researching who to go to and I am so pleased with the choice that I made. The whole process went very smoothly due to the help of Martina.
The arrangements were easy to make and Martina was quick and efficient at getting everything organised. Any anxieties I had on the day were soon gone because of Martina's reassurance and the fantastic team at the clinic. I feel that I have had five star treatment and would not hesitate to recommend Medical travel or the clinic.
A great big thank you to everyone for your professionalism, reassurance and top quality service.
I hope this is ok. I would like to thank you for all that you have done because without your help this could have been a very stressful process especially trying to fit it into my summer holidays. I am still swollen but the results are looking good, so if I do decide I would like anything else done in the future, you will be the top of my list!

Planning, research and making the final decision to have liposuction was quite daunting and travelling alone to a country I have not been to before and putting my trust in people I had never met petrified me. I made the best decision. From the beginning the team at Medical Travel were quick to respond to my enquiries, were very knowledgeable, and provided all the details I would need to make my stay run as smoothly as possible. I was collected from the airport and taken straight to my hotel. Jana collected me first thing in the morning and took me to the Clinic. The clinic is very modern and clean. The staff were very welcoming and friendly which immediately put me at ease and everyone spoke English. The pre op assessments were very thorough and my surgeon Dr Vasek was very professional and gave me excellent advice and recommendations, not just for the surgery but lifestyle changes that would assist me long term. I chose to have a general anaesthetic as I was having 6 areas targeted. My room was very comfortable and the nurses provided excellent treatment. The surgery was straight forward with no complications. When I came around my compression garment was already fitted. The only slight complaint would be that you only get one garment and you definitely need two due to washing and changes. I decided to buy a second but my size and garment style were out of stock and the company that provided them were on holiday so I left with only one. Before I left I was given information regarding aftercare and medication. I chose to buy additional medication to aid a faster recovery as I am going away on holiday in 4 weeks. I am now 5 days post op and the bruising on my hips has already started to turn yellow. The swelling has eased slightly and the small wounds are healing (be prepared you WILL leak) I can already see a major change in my body shape and can't wait to see the final results. I am very happy with my overall experience with Medical Travel and Clinic and would not hesitate to use them in the future.

What started off as a stressful start to my trip, having missed my flight, was gradually ameliorated by the overall enjoyable stay & experience I had in Prague.
Firstly, the operation went smoothly and the extremely helpful post-op services rendered by the Clinic team made the recovery process much less intimidating than I originally expected.
Dr Petr Vasek was very friendly and patient, and so were all his staff members!
I would definitely recommend Clinic to anyone seeking First-Class treatment from a World-Class professional at a very affordable rate. Plus, getting affordable accommodation near the clinic is easy, with several choices to choose from.
Secondly, Prague is indeed a beautiful city to explore, with plenty of medieval old-towns, castles/palaces to visit and I was immensely drawn to the St Wenceslas Statue near the clinic. I would most certainly consider returning to Clinic in future should I see the need for further touch-ups.
Lastly, thanks so much Anna for helping me liaise with the clinic when I was in a limbo after missing my flight!
I guess, without your help, I might not have been able to make it to Prague on that date at all! Thanks lots!

I am very pleased with your surgery, I had rhinoplasty and everything went well, quickly and comfortable way. All people were very nice,
polite and professional. My nose looks a lot different and better, its still a little bit swollen, but I hope it goes away soon. Doctor talked everything how I should take care of it later and calmed me down because I was very anxious. I have asthma and hayfever, but anaesthesia went well without any problems.I hope my nose appearance gets better with time and sensitivity goes away.
IVF Egg DonationMay 2014
After more than 4 years of trying to fall pregnant, with 6 failed IUI's and 6 failed IVF's, we decided to attempt an IVF using donor eggs. From the very beginning the staff were extremely professional and attentive to our needs, concerns and questions. Dr Mrazek was very reassuring during our Skype consultation and within the month we were given a choice between 5 donors. The medication arrived in the post and we began or preparation. Of course I was very nervous that everything was progressing normally and so sent many emails to Martina who related to me on a very personal level and provided me with all of the information and reassurance that I needed. Her response was quick and immediate considering we were often communicating outside regular office hours. Once in Prague we were able to relax and thoroughly enjoy everything that is beautiful about the city. Unfortunately our protocol was delayed and I had to extend my stay by 5 days but we managed to make transfer with 2 top quality Day 5 blastocysts and have frozen 4 blastocysts. This is a stark improvement on anything we have managed using our own eggs. We are astounded by the results and are so grateful to our donor for providing such a selfless act of kindness. We must now endure the dreaded 2 week wait however we would highly recommend the services of Gynem Clinic to anyone in a similar situation. We feel as though we have been treated with the greatest professionalism and regard.

Would like to say a big thank you to all the staff of Gynem Fertility Clinic and Medical Travel for all their help and support in making our dream come true.
Everything from the very start, like supplying us with a list of hotels near the clinc, arranging for us to be picked up at the airport and taken to our hotel, which was so nice and a pleasurable experience as this was our first time in Prague and we would have been unsure how to get from the airport to our hotel.
As IVF is such an amazing and emotional experience it was so gratifying that all the staff at the clinic were so friendly and approachable throughout the whole process. We built up a good relationship with them on our first visit which made things a lot easier to come back for the second step of the treatment. They appear to really care for you and for your own personal success.
The Gynem fascility is very impressive. It is a new and modern building giving the impression of a scientific and professional environment. It is easy to get there as the public transport in the city is very good. One ticket will allow you to travel on all three of the main forms of public transport, the Metro, trams and busses. From the Kobylisy Metro station a number 162 or 169 bus will take you there. The bus stop is only a few 100 meters from the clinic.
We were told to enjoy our “ holiday “ while we were there and were given a list of all the historic and famous places to visit. Prague will make you speechless !!!
We would recommend anyone thinking of IVF treatment to consider going there where they will find a very warm welcome and treatment at a really affordable price.

I would just like to thank you for the very good treatment and communication that I received from your organisation.
From the time I arrived, everyone was more than helpful and put my mind at rest. The medical staff were very efficient and professional in every way. The clinic was spotlessly clean and my room was very comfortable. All the staff spoke English and were in attendance 24/7. I would definitely recommend them.
I have been in communication with Martina for a few weeks prior to my surgery and she was wonderful. She helped me with the Clinic, pick-up etc., And was a joy to meet and a comfort to me at the Clinic.
I would definitely recommend you to anyone who is seeking surgery in Prague.
Thank you all again.

The clinic is not far from Dresden, just 2 hours to drive by car. After an extremely expensive, not fair and traumatising treatment done in Germany in august 2012 with the best quoted Professor at that time, I found the clinic in Prague and I was impressed from the very first phone call, about the professional approach and no waiting or wasting time and money. The Clinic is way better, clean and modern than any other clinic I ever seen in Germany and in England. The personal is very friendly but the most important is the experienced and kind doctor Mrazek. His work is accurate, he takes all the time you need to make you feel comfortable and to make the very stressing time of an IVF treatment as smooth as possible. During the treatment I have seen always the same doctor, he was always available for me, including Sundays and an International representative who speaks German and English was also always at my disposal. Also the embryologist, explains very clear what happens, how everything works, and knew how to keep me positive during the long days of waiting for the Embryo-labour-results. A big help was also to receive all the medicaments direct from the clinic. Another important positive factor for me it was that all the medicaments are provided from the clinic, price is minimum 3 times cheaper than in Germany. In this clinic you feel as a Patient that the people really care about you and not just about your money.

I am from England and went to the clinic in Prague for laser treatment. My liaison was Richard who helped me to organise my procedure. I saved myself a lot of money and had a city break at the same time. I would definitely recommend the clinic.

We were very satisfied with the treatment we got at the Clinique. The personal were extremely friendly and everything was handled in a professional manner, where we felt both welcome and also well informed about everything. The physical surroundings in the Clinique are of a very high standard.
