THANK YOU, PROF. ALI RIZA KURAL - Acıbadem Healthcare Services


By this letter, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Prof. Ali Rıza Kural, his team of surgeons and nurses, all hospital staff and administration.

From the very first examination, Prof. Ali Rıza Kural approached my health problems in a very professional and adequate manner. Unfortunately, after the MRI and MRI-guided biopsy, it was confirmed that I had prostate cancer. Following Prof. Kural’s recommendations, I decided to undergo a prostatectomy with the Da Vinci robot.

The surgery was performed brilliantly thanks to the great experience of Prof. Ali Rıza Kural and his team of doctors – Assoc. Prof. Dr. İlter Tüfek and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ömer Argun /sorry if I’ve missed someone/.

During the recovery period after the surgery, I was closely monitored by doctors and nurses. The conditions and care at Acibadem Maslak Hospital are more than excellent. Daily diet is prepared in accordance with each stage of the patient’s recovery. Hospital’s hygiene and equipment are of extremely high standards. What was highly important for me was the opportunity for my wife to stay with me during my entire stay in the hospital.

Special thanks on behalf of both my wife and myself to our coordinator and translator Birsen Yakut for her care and involvement. She was available at all times, ready to help with any problem and patient to answer all our questions. She is a great person and a valuable asset to Acibadem Hospital. 

Once more, thank you, Prof. Ali Rıza Kural, for saving my life, literally. From the moment I first met you, I knew I was in the best hands possible and I could entrust my health to you completely. Prof. Ali Rıza Kural and the other physicians, İlter Tüfek and Ömer Argun, did a great job as genuine  professionals. Both me and my wife will be grateful for a lifetime.

I wish you all good health and good luck, as well as keeping the same kind of human relationship to all your patients.

Best wishes,

Svetlomir Kolev and Nikolinka Koleva
