lung cancer
My father had lung cancer. We contacted Mr. Semih through the internet. My father underwent surgery. The surgery went very well. My father even felt like he had a very simple, minor surgery. It was a very comfortable process. May God bless Mr. Semich a thousand times over. He brought my father back to life. His approach to us was very good. He kept us informed in a detailed and accessible manner. He always reached out to us with comfort and moral uplift. We were always able to contact him even outside the ward. March 25, 2022.

lung removal
Semih Halezeroglu has been my doctor for 12 years. I came here with a lung complaint. I visited several hospitals and doctors. I met Mr. Semih through a recommendation. I am very satisfied. He is very experienced in his field. He removed one lobe of my right lung. The follow-up continued once a year. Then a portion on the left side was removed. My regular follow-up continues. He understands human psychology very well. His approach and behavior towards the patient is very correct. Of course, he is very successful as a doctor, but most importantly, his human qualities are very strong. He instills confidence in the patient by giving him detailed information. March 24, 2022.

lung cancer
I went to Mr. Semih on the advice of my friend. I went to Mr. Semih because of lung cancer. The operation was very successful. I had no problems after the operation, as if I had never had an operation, as if I had nothing. Mr. Semih is a doctor who instills confidence in his patient. He provides support and moral support like a psychologist. He was very detailed about the whole treatment process. My follow-up is ongoing. In addition to my follow-ups, I can always get information when I need it. March 23, 2022.

neoplasm in the lung
A neoplasm was discovered in my wife's lung. Upon recommendation, we went to Mr. Semih. The neoplasm was surgically removed. The surgery went very well. We did not have any problems afterwards. We were very satisfied with the process. Mr. Semih has an excellent approach and attitude to the patient. He was always very detailed in informing us about the whole process. He is one of the best doctors I have seen to date. We were always able to easily contact him outside of the department. I wish all doctors were like Mr. Semich. We were very pleased with both his approach to the patient and his professional progress. March 22, 2022.

Oncology
My wife had a tumor above and below her left lung. On recommendation we went to Semih Halezeroglu. The tumor was removed by successful surgery. During chemotherapy, an infection had gotten into the surgery site. Other doctors did not realize this. We turned to Mr. Semih again. He saved my wife's life twice. He's a wonderful doctor. He is a very noble, well-meaning, selfless, devoted to humanity, very successful doctor. His hard work and knowledge cannot be understated. Even his tone of voice soothes the patient. Through his speech, he makes the patient feel good. He is always positive. We had a very difficult case. Thanks to him we went through the whole process without any problem. He is one of the few doctors I can always feel comfortable recommending. March 17, 2022.
