  • If it's a visit in the Outpatient Clinic, an appointment is also scheduled.
  • In case of surgery or hospitalization, the patient selects the doctor after consultation with the hospital's administration.

  • A Provisional Proforma Invoice is always provided to the patient, which does not guarantee, however, the final hospitalization cost.
  • The patient before being admitted always signs a statement of consent, undertaking the responsibility to fully pay the invoiced amount for his hospitalization, even if this cost exceeds the initially budgeted one, provided by the Center's representative, as a result of unforeseen circumstances.
