I had problems with hemorrhoids for four years. After been examined by Dr. Ivanović, a HAL-RAR procedure had been arranged. The operation was successful and I was sent home the next morning. The recovery lasted ten days. Now, six weeks after the procedure, I had a checkup and everything is all right. I’d like to thank the entire staff, especially Dr. Ivanović, on professional and pleasant approach.
