This patient review and testimonial has been validated through TrustPilot
Dental tourism is a common practise in western countries, and it is sought by people who are looking for affordable and high-quality dental services and care abroad. Prague is one of the best destinations for affordable dental treatments. Some of the benefits of dental tourism include the reasonably priced dental services such as dental implants, dental crowns, laser dentistry, full mouth restoration, root canal treatment, teeth whitening, and endodontics. Many local dentists may offer these services, but they tend to be expensive. Luckily, you have the option to look for affordable dental treatment in Prague online. In fact, many dental procedures are 80 percent cheaper in Prague than when you have them done in your country. Here are tips to make sure that you can choose the right dental treatment in Prague:
- Look for a leading medical tourism specialist that is based in Prague – Make sure that the service provider is reputable in Prague and in the Ireland, UK, and the US.
- Make sure they speak in English – You want to be able to communicate with your dentists well, so make sure they speak and can communicate fluently in your language. Some of the best dental treatments providers in Prague have a multilingual staff and accredited English-speaking dentists with international experience.
- Read reviews about the service and the facility – Look up unbiased reviews on the dental treatment to see what other patients have to say. Reading patient feedback is a good way to learn more about the dental treatment and its quality.
- Look for freebies – Some dental treatment providers in Prague offer a free initial consultation and OPG X-ray.
- Verify the technologies that they use – Dental treatment providers in Prague must use cutting edge technologies, like digital CT, 3D visualisation, and Cerec CAD/CAM.
- Explore the services – Consider an affordable dental treatment package in Prague that can be done within two weeks. Some of the leading dental treatment providers in Prague offer personal assistance, too. A local representative will guide you through the entire process and throughout your stay. Full tourist services, like transportation and accommodation are provided, too.

Cataracts surgery with bifocal lenses.
When driving became a hazard for me due to cataracts in both my eyes, I decided that it is time to have the operation.
Like any operations, there are risks associated with it. I did an exhaustive research online in the US, where I resided and other countries and talked to various ophthalmologists.
I came across Praga Medica and corresponded with Rita. She was very professional and prompt in answering my questions and list the prices for the operations.
Praga Medica was the only one that reply to my questions within a day’s time due to our time differences. I have waited for answers from others that takes them at least 4 days and as long a 1 week. Some in the State will not even answer your questions but pressure you to visit their offices. Not so with Praga Medica. Rita are always prompt in answering any questions that your may have.
Well, I am embarking in something that will change my life. Everyone will tell you that cataract surgery nowadays are commonplace and success rate is over 90%. But, there is that big but. Anything can happen and of course each individual are different.
I read all the testimonials about Praga Medica and could not find any faults. The doctors are well established and Dr. Lubomir Tovarek who was going to do the surgeries have undergone 20,000 plus operations. That put my jitters to rest.
So, I decided to have a nice vacation in Prague as well as to have the Cataract Surgeries there.
I choose to have the Bifocal IOL and the Femtosecond Laser procedure.
I set up the schedule with Rita, pay the deposit require and from that time on everything run smoothly.
My wife and I was met at the airport upon arrival by John, was given a map and a local cellphone with the contact numbers and took us to our hotel which is on 2 minutes away from the clinic. We had 3 days to visit around Old City of Prague which we did by walking as it is very easy to find your way because of the various Landmarks that it is impossible to get lost. We have just a great time and the city is very beautiful.
Tuesday June 14, we were met at the hotel by Marketa who took us by tram to the health clinic for my health exam prior to the eyes’s operations. Later on the same day, we were met by Helena who took us to the clinic which is only 3 minutes from our hotel. The staffs at the clinic are very courteous and friendly and I lost count on the various different offices for the eye examinations and they are very professional. Finally all is confirmed and the operation will be the next day.
Wednesday June 15, we were met by Helena at the Hotel and went to the operation clinic, (different from eyes exam clinic) again which is only 3 minutes walk away like the other exam clinic. Everything went like clockwork. Change into surgery coat and have drops in my right eye and when my time is up , I was met by Dr. Lubomir Tovarek and was given a teddy bear to hug why I was being operated on. No pain except for the discomfort of looking into the bright light. Soon enough, all was done, a patch was put on my right eye and a picture was taken with the doctor, a vial of antibiotic drop to use to prevent infections.
Next day, Thursday, June 16, I took the patch of and it really took me aback. I cannot recall the last time that I can see so clearly and everything is so bright because the difference from my left eye which I have not operate on yet compare to the right eye which just had been operated a day before.I cannot wait to have my left eye done. We went to the clinic for the post surgery check-up and all was fine.
Friday, June 17, I have my left eye operated on and Saturday 18, have my post surgery check up and all is fine.
My eyesights are very good now and I can see everything bright and clear. I do not realize what I was missing until after the operations. Before the operations everything looks brownish.
I would like to thanks Rita and all her colleagues for the experience. Everything went smoothly.
I would like to thanks Dr. Lubomir Tovarek, and all the other doctors and staffs at Duovize.
for the perfect performance and have given me back my perfect eyesights.

Cataract surgery with bifocal lens
I was greeted by Natalyia at Praga Medica who was extremely welcoming and made me feel at ease and spoke very good English. Natalyia took the time to show me round the clinic which was absolutely spotless. I had dental x-rays and Natalyia sat down with me and explained how everything worked. My dental appointment was with Dr Jandova who spoke amazing English and took the time to go through any concerns and questions I had. Within 24 hours, I was sent my treatment plan for full ceramic crowns at very reasonable prices and I will be returning in the near future to have all my dental work done. I cannot recommend Dr Jandova and Natalyia highly enough. They both made me feel very welcome and whilst I feel strange saying this, I am actually looking forward to visiting their dental clinic in the near future.

“Now I’m 24 weeks pregnant”
Following years of trying to conceive, various IUI, failed IVF and also a natural pregnancy which ended at eight weeks, my husband and I decided to try IVF with egg donation abroad. After an extensive research online, we came across several fertility clinics; however after reading all reviews, in July 2015, we decided to contact Praga Medica. Straightaway we received a reply from Blanka and from then on we started our journey. We started with a Skype call with Dr Alexander, who explained in detail the procedure and from our end we asked a lot of questions which were patiently answered by him. Following that, we decided on November as the time we were to travel to Prague for our treatment. We chose the Egg Donation Optimum treatment. Blanka assisted with accommodation and also transportation, which really made our life easier in Prague. We spent a fortnight in Prague, during which we visited a lot of historical places and walked a lot around this beautiful city. We had to two visits at the Gest clinic, one at the beginning and the second for the transfer. On the second visit, after the embryo transfer, I rested for an hour and then went back to the rented apartment were I rested for the day. Two days later we went back home, waiting for the result, which unfortunately was negative. My husband and I decided to try for another fresh egg donation IVF and after once again contacting Blanka, we were given another appointment for February of this year. This time round, things were easier as we already knew what was going to happen. Although, once again we chose the Egg Donation Optimum, we opted also for the top package, meaning the PICSI, EmbryoGen and Embryo Monitoring. Besides that we also paid for the Assisted Hatching. We also opted for acupuncture so Blanka arranged the appointments. On the day of the transfer, I started with the acupuncture and then John the driver picked us up to go to the clinic. When we arrived we were informed by the embryologist that two embryos were going to be transferred, whilst two other good quality embryos were to be frozen. As what happened in the previous IVF, after the transfer I rested for an hour. However this time round we went back for another session of acupuncture. After that we went to the apartment which we rented and rested for the evening. We travelled back home two days later. After waiting less than the recommended two-week-wait, I decided to do a home pregnancy test, as my excitement and tension was too much for me. On the 1st March, at 5.30am I woke up to do the test and after three minutes, it showed a negative result! I was heartbroken and went back to bed. Half an hour later, I woke up to start getting ready for work and took another look at the pregnancy test. I starting screaming and crying as I saw the second line! I was over the moon! Now I’m 24 weeks pregnant and thank God, everything seem to be going well. At 46 years of age, for my husband and I, getting pregnant is just a miracle. We cannot wait to meet our little angel, who will be arriving at the last week of October.
The clinic, although small, has the ideal setting and is very clean. At Gest clinic, you’re not just a number. They give you the full attention. With regards to our treatment, Blanka, was there from the beginning to end, to assist us and answered all the questions we had.

Reviews – Fertility Treatment – IVF with egg donor
This patient review and testimonial has been validated through WhatClinic
I contacted Praga Medica in March 2016 after being told in September 2015 that my chances of having my own baby naturally or IVF with my own eggs were extremely unlikely. I am 46 years old and my Husband and I have been trying to conceive for almost 10 years, with 2 miscarriages. I had to accept Egg Donation was our only way forward.
From my very first contact with Blanka she couldn’t have been more helpful, kind & supportive, because I can honestly say I had some very stressful days/weeks leading up to the actual flight to Prague!
We had our initial appointment at the beginning of May with Dr Monika via Skype, where she confirmed our details & we decided to go for the Maximum Package so we could ask for specific characteristics of my donor. We paid extra for the ICSI fertilisation method, embryo glue and to have any remaining embryos frozen for 1 year.
Our first appointment in the Gest clinic was the 17th of June 2016 where we met Blanka face to face for the first time & Dr Monika who was to carry out the embryo transfer procedure. Dr Monika checked my endometrial lining was at the correct thickness via ultrasound, we signed the consent forms and agreed for my Husband to give a fresh sample on the day of egg retrieval.
I have fibroids so Dr Monika had said that only one embryo could be transferred as it would be dangerous for me to have twins.
Blanka made sure all our taxis were booked so we had no worries about getting to the clinic, which was a 5/10 minute drive (in all we had to go to the clinic 3 times).
Embryo transfer took place after 5 days of cultivation, painless & quick. I lay down for 15 minutes after the procedure in a private room in the clinic, then Blanka called us a taxi & we headed back to our apartment. I don’t know if it made any difference but for 3 days I just completely relaxed. On the 4th day we went for a walk around Prague city centre. We were there for 15 nights in total, which turned out to be fine in the end as it gave me an extra 4 days post transfer to relax before having to fly home to the UK.
After a stressful 10 days being back home and dreading doing the pregnancy test, on Tuesday the 12th of July we got a POSITIVE result!! It’s obviously very early days yet and I’m nervous of getting too excited at the moment, but I am more hopeful of becoming a Mum this time.
We also have 2 embryos frozen in case we want to try again 🙂
I would like to say a massive thank you to Dr Monika for her skill & professionalism, to Blanka for being so kind every step of the way & reassuring me every time I emailed her with one stressy moment after another & of course to my donor (who will never read this but I have to say it!) thank you from the bottom of my heart, without your kindness and selflessness I would never have been given this hope of having my own baby.
I was truly nervous about the whole procedure from the very beginning, but to anyone who is thinking about going down the egg donor route, I would highly recommend Praga Medica & it’s professional and friendly staff, no-one will look after you better 🙂

This patient review and testimonial has been validated through TrustPilot
I cannot recommend Praga Medica anymore highly. I have just returned from a trip, over 3 weeks for IVF. I was so lucky to have Jana look after every detail from first contact to the embryo transfer. The service provided is unbelievable, and stress free which is needed. All questions and emails are answered so promptly and honestly. I had Dr Monika, her English is great and is just amazing at her job. I had to failed IVF attempts in a different country and the service is nothing to compare (Praga Medica beats all). I really felt in safe hands. I also has the pleasure of meeting Blanka and Lucie, they were both there for every appointment, no matter what time and with smiles on their faces.
Reviews – Fertility treatment – IVF
Upper eye bleph plus SMASS mid-face lift performed 30th June 2016.
I chose Praga Medica after the well-documented experience of loving cvalifornia from the Real Self site.my procedure was done on 30th June in Prague by the highly skilled Dr. Zdenek Pros. I was initially afraid of having the procedure done under deep-.vein sedation but I had no pain whatsoever and my recovery was rapid. At 1 week post-op I had no bruising or swelling, and with a few dabs of flesh-coloured foundation cream was presentable. My own family were not told why i was going to Prague, and have no idea that I had “anything done”. They just said that I looked great and happy.I am particularly pleased with the natural aspect., My eyelids had begun to “hood” and gave me a tired, negative look. The naso-labial folds made me look perpetually tired. Now I look like my old self.I would have liked a little more improvement of the naso-labial folds, and may take care of this in a few months’ time by some fillers such as Juvederm ultra. I this is available at Praga Medica, I will of course do it there.At 17 days post-op I must say that I am very happy and highly recommend Dr. Pros to any other potential clients. Go for it! The results are so natural and the scars expertly hidden. I shall tell my lady friends abiut Praga Medica, who really deserve their excellent reputation.
I would also like to thank Miss Petra Skalova who took such good care of me and was so helpful and kind, and the driver John.

Reviews – Vision Correction – RLE Multifocal Lens Replacement
Since the Google reviews are pretty lacking for this clinic, I thought I’d add my thoughts in more detail. I was hesitant initially to pursue this route (I live in the US), but after Jana’s quick return email and consistently excellent contact my fears went away. From start to finish, this clinic and all those we came into contact with were timely and professional. I took off one star only because the travel cost to the clinic in Prague were astronomical from the states – ranging from $1500-3200/ticket. I didn’t take that into account when I initially priced things out. But luckily my husband and I were able to use buddy passes to travel there, so that helped a ton! The other reason for docking one star was because I found myself having to ask for clarification on instructions quite a few times. The medication ended up having a different name in the states and it was confusing trying to sort that out. Also, our doctor and time of the embryo transfer procedure were changed at the last minute due to holiday schedules, so that was a bit frustrating. But all in all, it was a very positive experience. Prague was a beautiful experience and the Czech people were surprisingly friendly. Everything ran smoothly – from meeting Driver John to taking tours of the villages. I would just definitely recommend getting the travel service package so you have one less thing to worry about! Now home, and having waited the agonizing 2-weeks, I just took my first pregnancy test and it was … positive on our first try! Highly recommend!
Reviews – IVF – Fertility Treatment
A good service
My experience of dealing with Praga Medica was very positive.I had the pleasure of dealing with Petra, who was always on hand to answer my questions in the initial stages, via phone and email. All aspects of the procedure were explained clearly, including the breakdown of the cost. Petra arranged my Hotel for the first night and their driver John was waiting for me at the airport when I landed, to take me to the Hotel. All of which was greatly appreciated. On the morning of my surgery, Petra met me at the Hotel and took me to the clinic where I met the doctor and had all of the necessary tests done. Everything went very smoothly and the nurses at the clinic were wonderful. The day after my surgery, Petra came to the clinic and accompanied me on the walk back to my Hotel. I had some further questions the next day, so called Petra on her mobile and she was more than happy to help and give advice, which again, was greatly appreciated. On my last day, their driver John came and picked me up from the centre of Prague and took me to the airport, which was a great help. I was very familiar with Prague, having lived there previously but I still appreciated the personal touch and contact I received with Praga Medica. I would envisage that for those patients who may be less familiar, the service provided would be invaluable. The only small negative I would have would be the lack of a follow up from Praga Medica or the clinic. In the 4 weeks since my operation, I’ve had no after care or progress check from either, which is disappointing. On the grand scheme of things, however, this is a minor issue and I would highly recommend Praga Medica to all consumers.

Miracles do happen thanks to Praga Medica
What can I say about PRAGA MEDICA, they’ve made all our dreams come true.
At 46 years old we had watched our friends marry and start their own family’s but never able to experience the joy that children bring. We had been advised that our chances of having children were basically non existent, I had several medical problems coupled with my husbands low sperm count and both our ages. We’d tried for 5 long years at home but with no success whatsoever. My husband had by this stage gave up both because of the failures and the effect it had on him mentally (anyone who has been trying will know exactly what I mean).I decided to look online and came across a website detailing the work PRAGA MEDICA done and the full range of services they provided. I filled in the online questionnaire and within 24hrs I had received a reply. I spoke to my husband and we decided we would try one last time.I’d always wanted to go to Prague and this was the perfect opportunity for a short break and a face to face consultation to see what Dr Monika thought our chances would be.We were contacted by a really nice lady called Blanka who organised everything which took the worry out of things. We arrived at Prague airport and John our driver was there waiting on us, he brought us to our hotel to unpack and unwind. Next morning John arrived on time to take us to our initial consultation. John was great, he talked to us showed us some of the local sites as we passed and really put us both at ease, anyone would have thought he was a friend we’d known forever not a driver who had just met us. We arrived at the clinic and I was so surprised at how clean and welcoming it appeared. Our contact Blanka was there waiting on us and explained that Dr Monika would see us soon. We continued up stairs and went to see Dr Monika. As you can imagine my husband and I were both very nervous and apprensive. Dr Monika went through our medical history and we both had blood tests and routine examinations. Dr Monika explained that due to my age our best chance of conceiving was to use donor eggs and that with some help my husbands sperm could be used. This was just music to our ears we couldn’t believe that we even stood a chance. We were told we could go home and think about it but we didn’t need time to think we wanted to try. Dr Monika advised that I would be given medication to control my period and advised when to start the medication to help build up the lining of my womb.We arrived home again and with the dates set I started my medication until our return to Prague. The date quickly came round for our return and again all arrangements were managed by Blanka at Praga Medica. John lifted us again at the airport and brought us to our hotel. We were given a mobile so we could contact Blanka and the clinic could contact us. After all our years of trying and failed attempts at home you can understand that we didn’t have much money left but with PRAGA MEDICA it was so cheap in comparison to prices at home. We had decided to go for Shared Donation which meant it was even cheaper but which still gave us 4 eggs and our donor was hand picked to our specific requirements ((ie: brown hair, blue eyes). The call we had been anxiously waiting came and we were told the transfer would take place the next day. I treated myself to a massage to help me relax and had a great day sightseeing. Next morning John arrived and took us to the clinic for the transfer. We were both so nervous but more hopeful than we’d ever felt. We opted for 2 embryos to be implanted and for 2 to be frozen. We returned to the hotel after resting for 40 minutes and next day returned home for the long 2weeks to pass before I could test to see if it had worked. The day came for me to test, with hands shaking I nervously done the pregnancy test then another then another, I couldn’t believe it after all those years of failed attempts I was pregnant. I lifted the phone and rang my husband, I remember just crying not being able to say a word and him thinking the test was negative until finally all I could say was it worked. PRAGA MEDICA made all all dreams come true. After years of watching family and friends have their children we finally had a child of our own. Our son was born on 25 October 2014, perfect in every way, his fathers double. Nathan is the light of our eyes and our little miracle, loved by everyone he meets. Time passed and we enjoyed our new found roles as parents but always in the back of my mind was the thought we still had 2 frozen eggs. I emailed Blanka who was only too willing to help us again try. Blanka made all the arrangements as usual and John once more met us at the airport. My husband and I had both agreed we had our little miracle but dare we be lucky again, surely not. We had the 2 eggs implanted and again returned home to wait the 2 weeks. I think in my own head I thought 1st time was a miracle it can’t won’t happen again. The day came for testing and to be honest I’d had no symptoms, I’d felt nothing. I took the test and to be honest wasn’t sure of the result. I thought there was a faint line but it was soo faint. Two days later i tested again and this time there was no mistaking the perfect bright line, I was pregnant again. I thought to myself how could this possibly be. After years of trying, crying and feeling as if there was a large hole in our lives PRAGA MEDICA have given us the gift of not 1 child but 2. I wish we hadn’t wasted all those years and money trying with private clinics at home, feeling like a number and feeling only half a woman not being able conceive. PRAGA MEDICA gave us more than a child they gave us a reason to get up. They made our lives complete. We won the lottery, all our hopes and dreams came true with them. It’s not just a fertility clinic it’s a family itself who treat each couple like friends not numbers or clients.

Reviews – Fertility Treatment – Egg Donor
Fantastic service – would definitely recommend
After 4 failed IVF attempts in the UK at using my own eggs, my husband and I decided to try donor egg IVF. The waiting list in the UK was
long and so we decided to go abroad. After lots of research looking at clinics all over Europe we decided upon GEST through Praga Medica for 3 reasons – 1. The clinic was relatively small, we didn’t want to feel like we were on a production line 2. Reviews
were good and initial response from our enquiry from Blanka was excellent 3. Flights to Prague are very regular and relatively cheap from the UK. We were not disappointed. After our initial enquiry at the beginning of July 2015 flew out for our initial consultation
with Dr Alexander, staying in Prague just one night at the end of July. We had all transfers to/from the airport and clinic arranged at a small cost meaning we had no stress at all. After an efficient consultation in the morning we enjoyed a sunny afternoon
in Prague before flying home. We were then booked in for our cycle in October 2015, using the maximum package. Communication from Blanka was always quick, friendly and informative so that every step of the way we had all of the information we needed. Once
the donors eggs had been collected we arranged our flights and arrived 3 days after egg collection. On day 4 we had a consultation where we were told our embryos were already hatching and ready for transfer that day, not on day 5 as expected! This was no problem
for Blanka at all, she quickly moved our acupuncture appointments (that she had arranged for us) and taxi’s so that we had no stress at all. After a quick and painless transfer we went back to our hotel and then had a free day to relax and explore Prague before
flying home. It really felt like more of a holiday! Two weeks later we were delighted to find out that I was pregnant and now I can happily say that I am 14 weeks pregnant with a growing bump! We also have 4 top quality embryos frozen and so plan to return
in the future to try for a sibling. We cannot thank Gest and Praga Medica enough for the help they have given us and for making the process so enjoyable and stress-free.

Reviews – Fertility Treatment
This patient review and testimonial has been validated through TrustPilot
My wife and I have been TTC for about three years now. We have been doing a lot of IUIs in the US, without any success. When my wife first told me about this clinic in Prague, I told her – let’s do it! We are world travelers because of my wife’s job and we didn’t have
any concerns about going to Czech Republic. However, I understand that some people may not be as experienced as we are, and that’s what makes Praga Medica so special. Jana Pfeifer, our contact with Praga Medica, made sure that all the details were exlained to us about our infertility treatment. She also provided us with things to do while we were there, after all you can’t go to beautiful Prague and not do some sightseeing. She can help with transportation, accomodations and anything else you need. She can really make the most unexperienced traveler have a peace of mind when going through such a stressful time. I definetely recommend the services of Praga Medica. Thanks Jana for all you do. We are proud to say after our first attempt we are expecting our first baby!!

Praga Medica – RLE treatment
I am not a stranger to medical tourism having had my teeth ‘fixed’ in another European country. So before choosing Praga Medica, for eye treatment, I carefully checked the credentials of the company and I carefully scanned all the reviews. I have been home 3 days now and while I have to take eye drops for several weeks the treatment appears to be 100% success.
I’ll get straight to the point and state that if I had to give a score out of 10 for my opinion on the treatment and how well I was looked after I would have no reservations in scoring 10/10. So lets look why I rate them so highly.
I booked into the Sovereign Hotel with my wife on a Monday night and on arrival the receptionist gave me a card that stated Monika (from Praga Medica) would meet me in the morning to take me for my first consultation. I was pleasantly surprised by this as I had not booked the ‘optional package’. Next morning Monika was there on time and she walked me to the clinic which was just a 15 minute walk away. She spoke excellent English and while at the clinic she acted as my translator. Though most of the staff at the clinic also spoke good English too. Everything at the clinic was highly professional. I lost track of the number of eye tests and different rooms I was guided to but I was very impressed with all the procedures. At the end we discussed the lens options for my left eye and I chose a mono lens for best possible distance. The next day I was required to have a general health examination and this time is was the lovely Klara who met me at my hotel reception at 07.30. Again very punctual and like Monika she spoke excellent English. Klara took me onto a tram then took us to a doctors clinic on the other side of the river. I had a urine test, blood pressure taken and an ECG and paid on the spot there. No problems at all. Klara was not only an excellent translator but gave me great advice on what to see in Prague. Klara escorted me back afterwards and then told me I would be met by Monika the next day outside the clinic I visited the first day. So Wednesday morning and punctual as ever there was Monika waiting to take me to a separate building where I would have the operation. She was my companion before the operation and afterwards. While waiting for the surgery I was given numerous eye drops (anaesthetic) throughout The surgeon who performed the RLE op greeted me with a teddy bear to make me feel comfortable. I liked that touch as I am very fond of cuddly toys ! I think the surgeon has performed some 20,000 operations over the years so I was in very experienced hands. The surgery probably took about 10 minutes. The bright lights were a little uncomfortable at times but it was pain free and after having a patch put over the eye and given two bottles of eye drops that was it. All done. Thank you again Monika. Thank you again Klara. Thanks to everyone who ensured that everything went so smoothly. And thank you to the person who organised everything for me in advance .. Katerina. What an asset to Praga Medica you are. You answered every question I had. The pricing structure was very clear (I should add that I saved a 1/3rd on UK prices.. two companies in the UK gave me quotes of around £2,500. And not only did I get my eyesight fixed I had a wonderful 4 days in the beautiful city of Prague. For anyone planning a visit then I can state my hotel at the top end of Wenceslas Square was the perfect location. Wenceslas Square is not really a square more like a very long rectangle and a hive of activity. Lots of shops though really they are on the expensive side. But great restaurants. For me the highlights were visiting the Old Town square with the magnificent astonomical clock and watching it do its ‘tricks’ on the hour. Pay to go to the top of the clock tower but go early to avoid the queues. On the other side of this square is a quite magnificent gothic church. Charles IV bridge and Prague castle were great experiences too. And don’t forget to try the Pilsner Urquel (from cask). Fantastic experience all round. And Praga Medica deserve all the accolades I am given them here. Thanks everyone 😀 . John and Lynne

Excellent care. Well looked after throughout.
We decided to choose Praga medica for my refractive lens treatment.
I enquired about other options, but found this was more suitable for my requirements.
I found the whole experience very professional.
I would like to say I found Rita Faltova very helpful and caring.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this clinic to any potential clients.

Reviews – Vision Correction – RLE Multifocal Lens Replacement
“I had always considered my small breasts a handicap. I had been dreaming of large, solid breasts for a long time. Today, there is a huge number of clinics offering plastic surgery. One cannot distinguish between the ones with high quality of patient care and those with poor level of experience and skills of their surgeons. I have, therefore, referred to Lenka Darázs, a professional adviser from Praga Medica. Lenka has vast experience with dealing with different clinics and surgeons and she understands the topic well. Based on her experience, she recommended me
Already at the first consultation I could tell that Dr Ondrejka was an experienced and helpful surgeon whom I could trust. He was not forcing anything upon me. He listened to carefully to my fears and answered all my questions. I booked myself enthusiastically in for surgery and could not wait for it. There was one more consultation on the day of surgery, just to double check the details and to make sure I was happy with the chosen size of breasts. Following the surgery, I spent the night at the clinic. The personnel was committed and helpful. Before discharge, my surgeon came to see me, examined me and gave me advice on the post-surgical care. There was a check up 5 days and another one 5 weeks later, both of which were OK. Dr Ondrejka was always pleasant and kept asking me if I was happy with the care. The customer care at the clinic was also flawless. I am glad I had left the choice of clinic and of the surgeon to my advisor Lenka who is a true professional. Also thanks to her I am now more than happy with the result.

IVF Behandlung mit gespendenten Eizellen
Man kann über die Agentur nur positives berichten. Seit der ersten Kontaktaufnahme mit Jana fühlt man sich absolut kompetent, freundlich beraten. Die Behandlung und der Behandlungszeitraum wird individuell für jeden Patienten angepasst. Keine langen Wartezeiten. Hervorzuheben ist die Freundlichkeit von Herrn Dr. Daniel Alexander und seinem Team. Die tolle Betreuung von Jana im gesamten Zeitraum vom Erstgespräch bis zum Embryonentransfer ist absolut super gewesen. Es war für mich die erste IVF Behandlung. Zwei Embryonen wurden mir eingesetzt und 6 Embryonen wurden eingefroren. Nach 21 Tagen hatte ich ein positives Ergebnis. Jana, Dr. Daniel Alexander und seinem Team aus der GEST Klinik möchten wir ganz herzlich für alles Danken.
Viele liebe Grüße Alexandra

Praga Medica is a trusted Medical Service Provider. This was our third adopted embryos transfer treatment in Prague. We were so happy and influenced with the perfect class of services they provide along with the excellent management and support they give. In our second attempt, pregnancy was successful and we got our beautiful baby girl. Three years later we decided to go for another attempt. We traveled to Prague (((( with our daughter this time )))) for a third embryo transfer treatment. Amazing …. This time pregnancy was
also successful. It is now on its 11th week and everything seems to be good. Praga Medica team is perfect. ((Jana)), on the other hand is so kind and helpful. She did her best to manage our needs during our stay in Prague. It was the third time we meet her and I would definitely advice you to contact or email her should you need any advice. Praga Medica team has managed plans, scheduled timings, very good English skills and they deal so friendly with people too. We are also so thankful to Zdenek, the gentleman who kept assisting us. Although he was so busy doing management work but he did not hesitate to come to Gest Clinic to say (Hi) and wish us all the best. The driver John was so kind with us , accurate in all transports times and was dealing so friendly. I would like also to appreciate the hard work done by Gest Clinic team. Special thanks to Dr. Monika Polakova who did the transfer the last time. Gest clinic environment was so comfortable. We were so satisfied with the way their team deals. I would really recommend everyone who needs a medical assistance not to hesitate to contact Praga Medica … Talk to Jana and leave the rest to them cause you will be safe and comfortable with the type of services and journey plans they provide. Last thing …. Prague is a very wonderful City so don’t miss the chance to visit it.

Medical Treatment IVF
Its took me 2 years from my first enquiry to actually undertaking my IVF treatment. Having 4 wonderful healthy children by my first husband I never thought that I would consider being a mum again in my mid 40’s. My new partner being younger with no children led to my decision to have donor eggs. To say my journey has been a rollercoaster is an under statement. We have planned trip and cancelled a few times due to health, job losses and numerous other issues life threw at us. Finally with our embryos frozen for nearly a year I took the journey to Prague alone as we couldnt both afford to go.I was very apprehensive on the outcome but knew it was now or never. The 24hr journey , huge costs involved and the risk it wouldnt work were overcome. I dealt with Blanka throughout the whole process and she has been amazing and has travelled our journey with us. I have to say the lovely people at Prague Medica were beginning to think treatment would never occur due to the extensive timeframe and problems. Finally on 12th June i travelled to Prague for my treatment on 14th June. From being met by driver John who was delightful to finally meeting the wonderful Blanka and Dr Monika in the clinic i cannot fault a thing. They were kind, open and extremely supportive. I had two embryos transferred from 4 frozen embryos. I rested for a day then flew some 24hr back home it was hard being alone on this occasion but i stayed positive during my 4 day stay. Once home the two week wait did go quickly and I tried to stay positive believing the few symtoms i had werent medication related. I completed my pregnancy test on 29th June and im pleased to say we are pregnant with our first attempt of IVF. We will have to wait to learn if its twins but think were extremely lucky to have this result. A long way to go yet but we are on our way to parenthood. Thank you all so much you were truly amazing and I would encourage anyone to seek IVF at this wonderful clinic i cannot praise them enough. EVERYTHING was so much easier and cheaper than back home. Thank you from us both A
