Burak Tander is a wonderful man, our son was born with esophageal atresia. He not only nursed our son, he was always with us, always there for us, never rushed. Dr. Burak became our family man. We are young parents and there are no words to describe the love and respect I have for Burak. May God keep him safe. December 8, 2021.

inguinal hernia
We visited 4 doctors but could not find a doctor who showed interest, competence and had a smile like Burak Tander. He informed us about all the details of inguinal hernia. He was very helpful both before and after surgery. Our surgery went very well, thank God. We are very thankful to him. February 9, 2019.

inguinal hernia
Our son Omer had surgery to remove an inguinal hernia. I am hoping he will also have surgery to remove a prolapsed testicle that develops after surgery. We are grateful to Mr. Burak for his attention, his smile, his professionalism in his field, his tireless efforts to understand our questions and concerns and to instill confidence. We want our depressed testicle surgery to be as successful as our inguinal hernia surgery, we want Burak Bey's hand to heal us, we pray. March 25, 2018.
