Hemorrhoids removal

Excellent doctor. Just got my hemorrhoids removed and I am on my way to full recovery. I still have one more minor procedure to go through in which I fully trust my doctor as some excess skin were created after the hemorrhoids removal. After that I will be 100% back to normal. Only issue now is to take care after my diet. I recommend Dr. Ioanna for everyone. She really does know her stuff and she will help you in anyway she can.

Εξαίρετη γιατρός

Η Ιωάννα μου έκανε αφαίρεση χολής με λαπαροσκόπηση. Η ανάρρωση έγινε πολύ γρήγορα χάρη στην εξαίρετη χειρούργο που είχα. Η Ιωάννα εκτός από καλή χειρούργος είναι και πολύ καλός άνθρωπος.

Άριστη γιατρος

Η Ιωάννα μου έκανε μια επέμβαση στο πρόσωπο. Μου αφαίρεσε μια σμηγματογόνο κύστη. Η επέμβαση πήγε πάρα πολύ καλά και κατά τη διάρκεια του χειρουργείου με εμψύχωνε και μου έδινε θάρρος γιατί είχα φοβηθεί. Περιποιήθηκε πάρα πολύ την πληγή και με συμβούλεψε για το πως πρέπει να τη φροντίσω. Την εμπιστεύομαι απόλυτα γιατί είναι εξαιρετική γιατρός.
