Thankfully, Eşrefpaşa Hospital specialist doctors are doing both my wife's and me's analysis at home. Me and my wife couldn't go to the dentist, when we heard that there was such a service, we immediately called the hospital and made an appointment. Our dentist came and was very interested.

It is extremely important for us, the elderly, to receive these services,” he said.
