Young expats are choosing Belgium because they don't know anything about it.Until they arrive they think they are going to a civilized European country,but as they start to live there they will see what kind of great big mistake they've done.

I personally had very very disappointing stay there in Belgium.It was my biggest mistake to think that I will be operated in the middle of Europe and thought the medical personnel would be as professional as an American,English,German or French,whom I worked with in military hospitals together.

But I was wrong cause these doctors in Belgium they don't know anything about INFORMED CONSENT.

Actually my life turned in to a nightmare because of the surgery supposed to be a simple surgery under local anesthesia.

No I am handicapped and lost %45 of my working ability.

Besides none of these people who were in charge wants to claim responsibility.The hospital Saint Pierre in Brussels and Order of Physicians of Belgium are turning a blind eye to this situation.

This kind of treatment is only can be seen in the Planet of the Apes.Expats should beware of these amateurs in Belgium hospitals.

I'm sorry for what happened to you, it's really tragic and I understand your dismay with incompetent doctors.
But the subject of the conversation is why young expatriates choose Belgium and for me I will say first of all that there are very good universities, good job prospects, a good atmosphere in the city with a lot of nearby towns, a lot of bar or beer is really cheap
