I had two surgeries with the diagnosis of Breast Cancer. My surgery was performed by Dr. Cengiz Dİbekoğlu. I thank him. I was very sad and devastated when I went to Gayrettepe for chemotherapy, our esteemed teacher Prof. Çetin Ordu, and although the chemotherapy was difficult at first due to the effects of the drugs, I could reach him at any time with his knowledge, interest and care. It is very important. I would like to thank him and his entire team, especially nurse Dilek and nurse Zeynep. They are a nice team that does their job very well. I understood from the first examination and chemotherapy that I was in safe hands. I am glad they exist. May God not show their shortcomings. Thank you very much.
