Client reviews
  • 25 Apr 2024, Anonymous patient

    Thanks for the quick delivery of the report, including answers to additional questions.

  • 23 Apr 2024, Imrich M.

    A very easy way to send medical reports.
    Quick (and clear) processing of the entire case.
    Based on the available information, I received a very comprehensible opinion.
    My case was assessed by Mr. Ole Ackermann, MD, PhD, I greatly appreciate his recommendation, it helped me to confirm the current situation (confirm the orthopedist's diagnosis) and helped my decision to go towards the replacement of my hip joint with a prosthesis. The next important step will be to find a suitable place/doctor with acceptable conditions and a date for the procedure. Thank you very much

    I very much appreciate the precise and helpful evaluation of my knee problem by Dr. Ole Ackermann, PhD. My questions have been answered with a great accuracy, formulated in a professional way yet undertandable, which is not usual. The quickness is remarkable. The outcome contained all data I needed for better understanding my condition and for making decisions - naturally, after consulting the findings with my local specialist. Thank you very much. Kind regards
