    First of all, hello to everyone, I have been postponing my nose surgery for years because of hearsay news and the videos I watched. A short time ago, a friend of mine had an operation at Florence nightingale hospital in dilitepe. Mr. Gaffar did his surgery without bruising, pain and cuts, and I was very surprised, he said that he did not feel any pain even when removing the tampons Taking this information as a reference, I went to the hospital and was examined on Friday, and he gave detailed information about what we would do, both aesthetically and in order to breathe correctly.

    Hello, we had my baby born here last week. The hospital staff is very respectful and helpful, the nurses on the delivery floor, the nurses are very good, the delivery room doctors are very successful. We do not only recommend as a pediatrician. If possible, contact your own doctor immediately. The doctor who constantly rebuffs his ego is really annoying. Thanks for everything.

    For rhinoplasty, Prof. I had surgery on my teacher Gaffar Aslan in December 2021. He is an amazing doctor. He got a much nicer nose than I expected and my breathing problem got better. I stayed one night in the hospital. From my point of view everything was perfect. I am glad that my doctor and my paths crossed, I would recommend him to everyone

    After the first surgery I had due to breathing problems I had before, I had to have a second surgery after the infection developed in my nose, and my nose collapsed due to the doctor. After living without a nose for 1 year, I was examined by Gaffar Hodja upon his recommendation. Although my nose is very bad and the operation is difficult, cartilage was removed from my rib and a new nose was built in the operation performed by Gaffar teacher :) After this operation, I have been living my life for 8 months without any problems.

    I chose it for birth and I never regret it. I cant thank my doctor Aykan OzCelik and his valuable team enough. I would like to thank all the employees who helped with their prenatal support, during and after the birth Despite my first birth and cesarean section, I walked out of the hospital on the 2nd day. In case of a pregnancy again, I will go to the doctor and hospital without fear.
