“I’m so happy when patients tell me that they eat normally and can eat again all types of food. At first, it looks simple but only a person who has dealt with this type of problem can understand. The trust I see in their eyes cannot be replaced by any other feeling. Patients from all over the world come at the clinic, that have tried all types of unsuccessful methods and in only three days they can smile again. And these smiles are so valuable…”- says Dr. Nuri
