TESTIMONIALS

Read a few words on what our patients have to say about us
I am 27 years and two years ago I was diagnosed with morbid obesity. In the past, I had tried lots of times to lose weight but I was unsuccessful. I was really desperate! Then, a close friend of mine told me about obesity surgery as being the only solution to my problem. I did a bit of online as well as ‘word of mouth’ research and finally ended up with having an appointment with Dr.Christodoulou. I trusted the man within the first few minutes that he started talking to me, I was immediately able to tell that he knew his stuff pretty well! He operated on me and did a gastric sleeve a few months later. Honestly speaking, Dr.Christodoulou gave me back my life!! I am so grateful to him, he represents a great honor for the medical community!

One year ago I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and I was referred to Dr.Christodoulou for surgery. It was the first time in my life that I came across a serious medical problem personally and just by hearing the word ‘cancer’ I was in total panic! Dr. Christodoulou managed to reassure me that everything is going to be just fine and after having a consultation with him I felt deeply relieved and calm. His professionalism, honesty and empathy towards me as a patient was remarkable. Today I am healthy and disease-free again thanks to him! I thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr.Christodoulou!

I suffered with gastroesophageal reflux ever since I was a teenager. Vomiting and nausea were part of my everyday life for 14 years. As I am a professional athlete, my quality of life was terrible as I could not train properly. I had tried all sorts of medicine throughout the years but none was really successful in controlling my disease. One year ago, I was referred to Dr.Christodoulou by my gastroenterologist for a surgical consultation. I had heard that Dr.Christodoulou is one of the leading experts in Cyprus in anti-reflux surgery and this gave me real hope. A few months later, he did a laparoscopic nissen operation to me and ever since my life has changed completely. My recovery was super fast, pain was minimal and my symptoms just disappeared right away on the next day after the operation. Now, I can enjoy training again without any problem or hesitation. Dr. Christodoulou is an excellent surgeon but a great person as well. I strongly recommend him!

In the past, I was severely obese and had medical problems that usually follow it, such as: high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, joint pain, poor mobility. All these health difficulties were disturbing my everyday life and threatened my professional career as well, since I am a flute player. When I met Dr.Christodoulou I saw the opportunity to change my life. His professionalism, knowledge and friendly approach gave me hope. I knew I could trust him. The sleeve gastrectomy went on perfectly well and without any complications. During my recovery period in the hospital Dr.Christodoulou and his medical staff took very good care of me, encouraged and supported me strongly. I have got all professional help from Dr.Christodoulou and even something that was more important to me, that is, his friendly and human attitude that is really priceless for me. I am very grateful to Dr.Christodoulou also because he enabled the crucial change in my life at the age of 58. Nowadays, I am leading a healthy life and I am a happy person weighing 55Kg less!
