First of all, I want to thank Dr. George Sireteanu for the operation that went very well, for the good communication and for how you knew to build relationships with the patients (the friendly approach removes any emotion/fear relating to the future intervention/recovery). Second, I want to thank all of this wonderful colleagues who managed, by their readiness, to make the recovery period seem easier and to make me forget about pain.

P.S.: Now, I am feeling extremely well. I believe I was very lucky to meet the doctor. These qualities deserve to be recommended! Thank you once again!

I want to say I, too, was operated on in this hospital, on 18.10.2015, by doctor Petre Avram. He is an excellent physician who helped me with daily advice in the postoperative recovery. I want to say that, before the operation, I weighed 113.8kg, and now, on 12.11.2015, I weigh 93kg, which is almost 21 kg less. I recommend him with all my heart and, through this message, I want to thank the entire team who operated on me and who helped me in this period. Thank you!
