”During my vacation in Bulgaria I had a strong dehydration, my insurance couldn’t help me so I contacted the services of doctoroncall.eu. They have been really helpful and the doctor came to see me in shortest time possible. Due to complications he recommended me to go for a night in a clinic to stay under observation.
