Patient reviews for cancer treatment in Germany
Successful cancer treatment in Germany “I want to thank Dr. Andreas Zesterhenn from the Oncology Center of the Solingen Clinic. Perhaps this is the only person in the world who could cope with the most serious disease – stage 2 laryngeal cancer. My father, Ilyin Oleg Petrovich, was lucky to get to this doctor. Maximum attention but the most important thing is the treatment that worked. But they said that there were almost no chances. An excellent doctor, I recommend! ”

Ilyin E.O., Tolyatti, Russia

Effective cancer treatment in Germany “I was treated in Germany in 2017. I hesitated a long time what to choose – clinics in Israel or Germany, there were pros and cons here and there, but stopped in Germany, and everything went fine. Treatment of cervical cancer took place in a hospital Nordwest, in Frankfurt, on the advice of acquaintances who had been treated there before, especially since the cost of treating cancer in Germany is not too different from the Israeli one, and the reviews about cancer treatment in Germany are mostly positive, accidentally came to Dr. Jörg Engel, and I think that Pts I’m lucky. The stage was already large, so I had to undergo radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery. It was hard, everything happened. But hope did not leave me for a minute, thanks to the support of my family and the entire staff of the hospital. Now I’m in remission, everything went well. I hope I passed this test and it won’t happen again. Thanks again to Dr. Engel and everyone who helped me during this difficult time. ”
