    I attended here for Hair Transplants. My liaison contact was Burak Yildirim, international manager for the hospital. He was outstanding and so professional. Everything was arranged perfectly and communication was quick and comprehensive. On day of procedure, I was impressed with the hospital and all staff. I would have no hesitation to recommend Academic Hospital.

    I am going to give this hospital 5 out of 5 stars. The staff did an excellent job. I was in the hospital for four days after my liposuction. The biggest complaint I have is that there was NO circulating air in the room. It was extremely hot in my room all the time and I had to have the window open. Even then it was hot. I really needed to have a fan because I was burning up. Also, the call light did not work in my room. But overall it's a good hospital. Make fans available to patients, because the air in the rooms doesn't move at all.

    My husband and I were treated wonderfully by Ozhan Çelebiler and his twin receptionists. Dr. Çelebiler is the best in his area of expertise.

    Dr Suphan Tunc was my consultant surgeon. She is amazing so lovely kind & caring ! I was able to communicate with Dr Suphan so well. Even though I am from the UK & deep Yorkshire! Can not thank her and the team there enough.
    The only thing we had a few problems with was transport but this got better once i spoke to Burak!
