    The team he works with and himself are very interested and smiling. He followed the pre- and post-operative examinations and acted according to the test results. He did not necessarily say to have surgery. When you go, he examines you first and guides you. He becomes a guide. Thanks for your interest

    I am giving five stars to make my comment stand out.... I definitely dont recommend it. She had diabetes surgery on my relative and the woman is currently bedridden and is not interested, she never accepts her mistake, she should definitely be dismissed......... If we want to take him to the doctor, it is always said that the doctor who brought this patient to this situation should fix it, but Alper Çelik threw us out of the hospital (yes, read carefully). There is no such thing as not paying attention after the surgery, the woman is now 40 kg, there is an endless diarrhea for two years......
