Doctors in Iraq said that our baby had a hole in his heart and that we need urgent operation. We came to Acıbadem Bakirkoy Hospital with an air ambulance. He had Tetrology of Fallot. Our baby Yaseen was only 3 months old! We stayed in the hospital for 30 days. Dr. Rıza Turkoz and all the nurses took a great care to our baby. Thanks to Dr. Rıza, our son will live and have a healthy life.
