25 September 2012, Tuesday /TODAYSZAMAN.COM
Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie reportedly paid a secret visit to a Turkish doctor on Sept. 14 when she was in the Turkish capital of Ankara to have talks with Turkish officials.

The famous actress, who is also a special envoy for the UN refugee agency, met with Professor Yaman Tokat in a hotel in Ankara to talk about her liver disease, the Posta daily reported on Tuesday.

According to the report, Tokat told Jolie that she needs a liver transplant.

Jolie met with President Abdullah Gül and ministers Beşir Atalay and İdris Naim Şahin on Sept. 14 to discuss the situation of Syrian refugees living in camps along Turkey's southern border.

The Hollywood actress also visited Syrian refugee camps in the Turkish provinces of Gaziantep and Kilis together with UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres before his Ankara trip.

@james martone, with deepest respect,. One good doctor in US and his name is Mehmet OZ.
With deepest respect to Turkey, aren't there any good doctors in the USA? Does she have to come all the way here to consult one? I agree with commenter who said she probably went for a broken heart, after seeing the children in the camps.

I feel so sorry for her. What if she did go to a doctor in Ankara? It is her business and no one else`s. She is doing a lot of good, I wish people would leave her alone.
Is there a real need for such news. I have great respect for Today's Zaman, as well as peoples rights to privacy vis-a-vis Angelina Jolie or any other person, unless it's of genuine public intrest.
May be she went heart broken after seeing the syrians refugee's children. Yet, wishing her speedy recovery!
