Genuinely helpful customer service

The doctor's assistants were very helpful and respond promptly to calls and whatsapp. The professor's report took only 4 days and they even give you 10 days to ask follow up questions. Highly recommended for a second opinion if you you're not comfortable with your local physicians and need a more evidence based approach to your case.
