“I think we’ve got it in as a standalone feature and as a competition 🙂 I can’t thank you enough for putting me in touch with Dr Hoda, it’s actually been life-changing for me, and I’m not exaggerating”! Mabrouk Dr Hoda ;););) – Anonymous

When i first met Dr. Hoda, I suffered from being tired all the time, lack of sleep and not feeling like myself. She suggested it might have to do with shortage of male hormones. We started out with a full range of blood tests to assess the levels of Hormones, Thyroid levels etc. Dr Hoda assessed the results and prescribed the appropriate medicine. I started to feel better almost immediately and have been on frequent follow up’s, with new tests to assess progress and make sure everything is OK.  It feels safe and reassuring having such a professional guiding you on how to feel better at an age +50, and making sure it takes place in a controlled manner. Dr Hoda impressed me with her in-depth knowledge of HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) and extensive experience in this field. To this end, I can warmly recommend her to anyone with similar problems and would not hesitate to refer her at any time. – Anonymous

Dr. Hoda has been an incredible treasure chest of up to date information when it comes to anti-aging. She has advised me not only on herbs, vitamins but also scheduled tests, blood test, hormone tests and physical test. I therefore felt that every aspect of me, mind body and soul was being taken care off at the highest level and a great balance was achieved between the three. I am extremely happy with Dr. Hoda’s advise and would not hesitate to refer her at any time.

I have always been very pleased and satisfied with my experiences with Dr Hoda and Euromed Clinic Centre. Coming here is like dealing with a trusted member of the family that really does care about your needs. Dr Hoda is attentive and observant, friendly while maintaining professional and efficient standards of service. I was suffering from some hormones imbalance and fatigue and had been to see a few doctors about this. After seeing Dr Hoda she advised me to deal with my health with a complete new approach. I feel so much better and am very happy with the understanding and guidance received from Dr Hoda. Thank you so much for providing such wonderful service! I would happily recommended her to every patient – Christine

I have been seeing Doctor Hoda Makawi for about 2 ½ years now. I initially went to her for the regular monitoring of my thyroid hormones. She listened to my symptoms and concerns with empathy, and accurately solved my issues by combining her medical knowledge with a holistic insight. She stays abreast of new techniques, to help her patients. She has gone above and beyond the call of duty on more than one occasion for my family and myself and I am currently living a fuller life, with a brighter outlook than I was before I met her. I have great respect for Dr Hoda and I have recommended her to friends and acquaintances on many occasions – G

I am a very lucky “patient” of Dr. Hoda Makawi since some years. She is very “competent” experienced in her field, very friendly and takes time to listen. Very much appreciated and very grateful to know her. – Manuela Beck
