TESTIMONY ANDREA LLOYD, from Louisville, Kentucky.USA Date: February 2010
Dear Ilka & Eric,
I can't say enough about how nice my experience was in Panama and how blessed I feel to have met you and Eric. Our friendship is special to me, and I hope some day I can play hostess to you if you travel to the lovely bluegrass state of Kentucky!
I don't know if you were aware of the snow storms in our area on the day we returned, but our flight into Louisville from Atlanta was cancelled, so we rented a car and drove about six hours. It was fine though. I'm just glad that it didn’t happen on the way down to Panama.
Why did you choose Panama as a place to do your surgery?
I chose Panama for several reasons. First, the cost of the procedure was so much better than in the US, and the quality of care is comparable as well. Panama is easy to reach from the US, and I have always wanted to go there because I have always heard good things about Panama from people who have been and from travel and retirement literature. And of course, your personal correspondence made me feel comfortable.
Have you been referred from someone to our services in Ageless Wonders Panama?
I found Ageless Wonders Panama through a site called Placid Way.
Did you like the service & personalized attention of our team in Ageless Wonders Panama?
Yes, I liked the personal service from AWP. You anticipated all of my needs, and I really felt special that you accompanied me to the appointments. That was unexpected and certainly thrusts your service into the exceptional category.
How do you rate and qualify our medical care team?
The quality of care and time spent was thorough and adequate. I was very pleased with Centro Fecundar and all staff. I would definitely recommend your services to anyone requiring elective surgeries.
If you need to have another surgery or procedure, would you consider traveling to Panama & contact our team, at Ageless Wonders Panama?
I will definitely use AWP in the future for any of my needs, and will recommend to friends and family.
In your personal experience, what are the main advantages of coming to Panama for medical or other services?
The advantages in going to Panama for elective procedures are that a vacation can be taken along with the procedure and it still costs less than if performed in the US.
What do you like the most about Panama?
I like the beauty of the land and people in Panama the most. It seems to be very similar in culture to the US which makes traveling abroad for services easier to do in Panama rather than in a place more foreign which might cause patients to feel vulnerable.
As I stated before to Eric, I think the health tourism industry is an exciting arena to be entering into, and I have even tried to picture myself working in it with you at some point later on down the road. I will be practicing my language skills while thinking about my future, and I hope AWP continues to succeed beyond your belief!
