“Getting information relieved me”
Nurdan Pektaş, who had a meniscus rupture surgery at the Eşrefpaşa Hospital Orthopedics and Traumatology Clinic, said, “They said that I had to go to the control one month after the operation. When I could not go because of the epidemic, I reached the hospital through the system they put into practice. Luckily, Doctor Selcuk Özgen, who operated me, listened to my complaints.
