State HospitalsDue to limited funding, Turkish State hospitals don't have the best sanitary conditions. They are always full of patients and have endless queues. The lack of hygiene, lack of staff and lack of care is easily felt. Ironically however, they have some of the most well-known and respected doctors on staff, particularly at the university hospitals. A little hint: If you have doctors among your family or friends, they may facilitate your hospital visit. Istanbul and Ankara's state hospitals are listed in our yellow pages.
