"First of all, a big thanks to the entire team of St. Catherine Hospital. I suffered from terrible back pain, causing me to lose consciousness. The pain was so strong that I couldn't speak or walk. After several examinations, I was told in the another institution that they don't know what to do with me. When I came to St. Catherine Hospital for an examination with Marjan Rožanković, M.D. ,Ph.D., Consultant Neurosurgeon, upon reviewing my medical records, he immediately understood the issue. You instilled in me such confidence and trust, proving your expertise. Above all, I didn't feel just like another patient in line. Now, after the surgery, I have no pain. I cannot thank everyone enough. You set the standard very high and are a true example of how things should be done."

First of all, I would like to highlight the very kind, friendly, and very helpful staff of St. Catherine. Every employee has a smile on its face, and is ready to help and give professional advice at any time. What I especially want to emphasize is the detailed preoperative preparation and treatment, as well as the course of the operative procedure itself - this is a completely different, top level. Due to the very good and high-quality relations of the medical staff mutually and the hospital's multidisciplinary approach, I felt comfortable and completely safe. The apartment I stayed in was very spacious, and I would definitely like to emphasize the level of cleanliness and orderliness of the room. Indeed, every honor and praise for St. Catherine Specialty Hospital in every segment. Finally, I want to thank my doctor and operator Marjan Rožanković, M.D., Ph.D., Consultant Neurosurgeon, for whom I came to St. Catherine. He is truly a real expert for whom I have only good words and praise, as well as for the St. Catherine Specialty Hospital in general.

Having recently moved to Slovenia with an existing spine problem, a new friend recommended St. Catherine Specialty Hospital to me. After a quick check, I found it was only 2 hours drive so I contacted the Hospital and was booked in for a consultation within days. As I am originally from the UK, I had no experience of Hospitals in Croatia. So, on the very first visit any concerns I had were gone as every staff member impressed me so much - everyone was very helpful, efficient and professional and that gave me huge confidence in knowing I was dealing with the right people. I booked in for my surgery with Marjan Rožanković, M.D., Ph.D., Consultant Neurosurgeon only 1 week later where I had amazing care and I really can’t thank everyone enough. If any of my friends or family were unfortunate enough to need a hospital, I would have no hesitation recommending St. Catherine Hospital to them.
