The search results are ordered based on the distance to your location, availability, opinions provided by real patients or other data points. No health professional is deliberately presented above others for any other reason, and HuliHealth has certainly not been paid to do so.
All of our health professionals have agreed that they will never charge HuliHealth patients more than the patients they receive through any other channels. So what you see on HuliHealth is the same price that health professional offers to every patient who comes through the door!
Yes, they are. Every price quote you see on HuliHealth represents a health professional’s best estimate of the average cost of performing that procedure. While we can’t guarantee you’ll pay exactly that amount – some patients may pay less and some patients more – the price you see is the best estimate we have as to what the procedure in question will cost.
Only patients who have booked appointments with a health professional from HuliHealth, and who went to their appointments, are permitted to post opinions on the website. The star opinions you see in your search results represent the average of the overall star opinions left by patients.
Health professional opinions are the lifeblood of HuliHealth! After you book an appointment with your health professional, we want you to write about your experience – what went well, what didn’t go well, and why you would or would not recommend this health professional to others.
The only people authorized to post opinions are those who have booked and completed an appointment with that health professional from HuliHealth. We added this safeguard to ensure that our opinions are as accurate and informative as possible.
Our goal at HuliHealth is to enable you to make informed health care choices. We do our part by giving you as much information as possible about great health professionals all over the world – but it’s important for you to play your part too! Writing an opinion that reflects your experiences gets the conversation going, and helps future HuliHealth users to find the health professional who fits their needs.
Nope! As a patient, using HuliHealth will never cost you anything. And no, we can’t pay you to write opinions.
After you’ve booked an appointment with HuliHealth and visited the health professional, you will receive an email with the instructions. From there, open your appointment book; the appointment you just completed will have a link to “Write an opinion”. Once you’ve finished, click “submit” and you’re done. It’s as easy as that!
We understand that a visit to a health professional isn’t easily summed up in a single five-star rating. This is why we break down the opinion process into multiple components. We’d love for you to tell us as much as you can about your experience: was the health professional’s bedside manner pleasant? Did she communicate well? Did the staff treat you professionally? Was the price fair? All of these things matter to someone who might be considering an appointment with your health professional, so write honestly and fairly!
We keep opinions on the website indefinitely; as long as the health professional’s profile is on HuliHealth, your opinion should be attached to it.
We have very simple rules, so we reserve the right to partially or totally reject content that violates the following characteristics:
At Hulihealth we seek and care for the genuine opinions of our patients, so we take content moderation seriously. This means that we can only reject an opinion if:
The opinion will be rejected when there are indications that it was made with the purpose of increasing the general qualification of the health professional. Scheduling false inquiries or offering anything of value in exchange for a positive opinion is prohibited.
Opinions cannot be posted on HuliHealth by just anyone. The only people authorized to review a health professional are those who have booked an appointment with a health professional from HuliHealth. This is our safeguard to ensure that all opinions are posted by HuliHealth members who have actually met with that particular professional.
In the case of certain types of content, including opinions and responses from the health professional, you can report possible infractions by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying the location of the content and the reason why you think it violates the rules.

Medical travel is the practice of traveling to another city, state, or country for the purposes of obtaining medical care.
People travel for health care for a variety of reasons. Sometimes a particular procedure is prohibitively expensive in the patient’s home country. Some patients travel because their home country requires a long waiting period before they can receive the desired health care. Some patients travel because local laws and regulations prevent them from getting the health care they need. Still others travel to visit renowned centers of excellence that possess the best technology. Medical travel is not for everyone, but there are a lot of good reasons to think about it!
