Patient Story:  Aidan Draper 🏨✨
“Everything has been 10 out of 10! Not only was I released from the hospital, but I was also released from my pain,” said Aidan Draper, a retiree from Cork shortly after his hip operation at HCB Denia. “I want people to know that no matter what age you are, if you are in pain, give Healthcare Abroad a call you won’t regret it.” Aidan had his other hip replaced seven years ago at a private hospital at his own expense. “I was waiting five years to get the other one done and was considering going private again because I’m over 80 and just didn’t want to spend the rest of my life in pain. That’s when I saw a TV ad for Healthcare Abroad.”
“I have to say I thought it was a scam at first, but we reached out to our Credit Union and they said they had 2 to 3 people a month doing it, and it was all above board. I talked it over with my daughter, and we reached out to Paul, and with his help, we were able to get everything planned within 3 weeks.”
“Everything has been great! The transportation, hotel and Healthcare Abroad staff have taken wonderful care of us. The Monday pre-op tests at the hospital were so organized and efficient. Dr Jordy is such a lovely man who set us at ease right away. The post-surgery physio has been fantastic. Being a sportsman, I know how important it is and was so happy to have that part of the process. When I had my other hip done back home, I didn’t receive any. At my age it is especially important to get the rehab and back in motion.”
“I can thank Healthcare Abroad for helping me get my life back. I can now look forward to keeping up with my siblings at family get togethers and of course many games of pitch and putt. My daughter who travelled with me and I have made some great friends with fellow patients that also made the experience enjoyable. We will for sure be telling everyone back home to give Healthcare Abroad a call if they need care.”
