I would like to discuss the experience I had during my 3600 graft fue session with dr. Koray. Being from Australia, I had very few knowledges about dr Koray Erdogan results. All I knew was that the Dr Koray Erdogan cost for HT was a lot less from the UK and the USA. Hence, I started researching about the clinic and its reviews.
There are lots of Dr Koray Erdogan forums which are filled with great stories. I was nervous at the first go, but then I consulted the Sevinc who was my patient coordinator. He was great at communication and send me all the details over email. He got me my hotel bookings and the cab booking.
The Visa took a day or so. I was charged a total of 10,000 Euros for all the services included. I though it to be a great option. But, this is not what I got. Whatever I was promised was only on email. The actual service was very different.
After I reached Istanbul taking a long hour flight that ended at 5:30 PM in the evening while started at 2:30 AM from my place. I was told that the car would be waiting for me outside the airport. But, no one showed up. I tried to call Sevinc and the number was busy. So, I decided to take a cab to the hotel which was mentioned in the email.
It took me a lot of time to explain the driver about the hotel. He dropped me at the hotel and I was charged for the trip. This was an extra expense as my package included the cab charges. I tried to check in, but the receptionist said that I was not booked. I showed them the email and they consulted Sevinc. After waiting for two hours, I was given a room and they charged me for the dinner. This was again an extra expense as my package included breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The next day, I got hold of Sevinc and he sent the cab to my hotel. A relief after a bad day. I reached the clinic and met the doctor. After consulting the doctor, Sevinc took me to the room where my blood was tested, and ECG was done. So far, it was fine. Although, the place looked disorganized, I wanted my hair to look good and was not worried about how great the place looked.
I was taken to Dr. Koray Erdogan’s room and he marked the preliminary hairline. I wasn’t satisfied by that design and asked it that could change a little bit. He insisted on that design and I did what he suggested. After all, he was the expert in that field.
The next day, I was given a time to reach at the clinic. My cab was late as usual, and I had to hire one for myself. They had an area just outside the surgery room where the shoes were taken off. Dr. Koray was leading me and he did not bother to open his shoes, neither asked me to open mine. It was unhygienic.
First procedure was extraction from the donor area. It was hurtful, and they did not answer in the middle of the procedure. I had few questions, but I was asked to keep mum. It was lunch hour when they left and asked me to wait for the incision.
I was not given proper direction and if I could go out for lunch. I sat there starving and watching TV which was in Turkish. After lunch, the incision stared for the graft area. It took more hours as expected. It was painful too. The anaesthetics used did not help much. But, the procedure was done, and I was given some medication for pain after the surgery as well.
The next day, I was given shampoo bottle and conditioner. That’s it. I was given no directions. They did provide me some papers with instructions, but it was again not in English. It was not the way they should have treated me. I felt as if I was not given the proper attention. The results were also not great. The hairline that they did, was bad and did not suit my face. But, it is done.
