We are grateful to the doctor Dr. Ihsan Yilmaz who helped us to this cool! We say thank you many times!

Migo Algailany

This is Migo..You did my surgery for retinal detachment in 2019. My doctor here in the USA "Dr.Watson" told me that you did an amazing job. She also told me that if I had done the surgery in USA, they would not even done half of what you did. I really can't thank you enough. I feel so lucky to have you as my surgeon. Thank you so much again and again.

Jessica M. Pothering

I actually drafted this note in a cafe after I last visit to your office because I was feeling so grateful to have had such an excellent doctor. I'm sure you hear that all the time from your patients. It's clear that you love your job and take great pride in your work (thank you for that). But you also have a striking sense of empathy, based on how you convey information to your patients and assure them of what to expect moment by moment during their treatment. This is really unique - at least it's in the healthcare systems I've experienced. Thank you so much for your extraordinary care.

Nilsu Enustun

Sabiha Karacihan

You made my eyes like reborn despite my myopia, astigmatism and corneal scar. You said I might have some pain after surgery, but even cold sore in my mouth hurts more. You calmed me during the surgery with chatting. I almost did not understand when the surgery was done. Thank you so much!

Alma Najwa

During my consultation with Dr.Yilmaz, I was diagnosed with cataracts in my both eyes. Whitin two days, the operation took place, and it was a success. I was amazed with the overall outcome and care that I received. My vision was corrected.
