I was in pain with my bunions for years. Then I called Healthcare Abroad.

Anita Kucan is a pharmacy manager in Crumlin, Dublin, and is used to helping people in pain. That’s part of her job. But while she has been helping locals for years, the Croatian-born professional has had her own pains – very painful bunions. “I’ve had the pain for years, at least five years,” says Anita. “I had been on a waiting list for more than two years with no contact whatsoever from anyone,” says Anita.

“I was in so much pain. I needed help and I went online to see if I could be seen abroad and thankfully I found Healthcare Abroad. “Within 50 minutes of sending a message to them online, I got a phone call back. The service from the start was incredible.

“I thought it was too good to be true but I checked all the testimonials and just went with it.” Anita says the hospital, the Healthcare Abroad carer-drivers, surgeon Dr van Rijn and the hotel staff were all phenomenal. “I will be back with Healthcare Abroad again to have my other foot fixed,” says Anita.

“The irony of being in Spain is that I did get that call from the HSE offering me an appointment after two and a half years. Isn’t that typical?” she adds.

If you are suffering from bunions, Healthcare Abroad can match you with an amazing consultant in a private hospital in Spain within weeks.
