“I would absolutely recommend Healthcare Abroad for your medical needs,” John Burke from Achill Island said after his successful shoulder surgery. “Things went so well. I’ll be back for an operation on my hip as soon as I can. It just doesn’t make sense to wait in pain at home when this brilliant opportunity for treatment exists.”
John faced health challenges prior to having extreme pain in his shoulder. “I ended up getting what I thought was a referral to orthopedics but when my new GP’s office checked on the status after six months, they said it wasn’t there. Thankfully my new GP then agreed for me to go with Healthcare Abroad. I was a bit apprehensive at first but once I talked everything through with the team and my flights were booked, I was looking forward to getting help for the pain I was in.”
“Everything has been great from the Healthcare Abroad staff and drivers to the hotel. Dr. Morales and the hospital staff were amazing. I am retired from a career in rehab and want to point out that the camaraderie that is built among fellow patients is a unique and beneficial part of this treatment plan. Now that my shoulder is on the mend, I am looking forward to enjoying time with my granddaughter and the arrival of a new grandchild. Once I have my hip looked after hopefully, I can return to golfing and fishing but the main thing in the meantime is to be free of pain means I can keep up a positive attitude to living.”🩺
