We were met at the airport and taken to the Titanic Hotel at the clinic (I think the best option)
We are from Ukraine . Husband on CT discovered the formation of questioned liver fcr? We did not immediately understand what to do, whom to contact, we understood only one thing that you shouldn’t pull, I contacted many intermediaries, the search was in the net because there wasn’t anyone to ask. I really believe in signs of fate, the very first who got in touch was Alex with bookimed, I talked about the situation, I offered several clinics in Turkey “Anadolu” and Israel “Surasky”, on the holy feast of the Protection, the answer came from Adenolu and immediately flew! We were met at the airport and taken to the Titanic Hotel at the clinic (I think the best option). We underwent MRI examinations (cons surgeon, oncologist, biopsy, tests, and a radiation doctor and Pat.). The diagnosis was confirmed (((((operation is not possible from "Because education is not one but several. Anna was always dragging us from Ukraine all the time))) Respect to Suleiman, well done guy! I was always in touch! We consulted with Professor Mohamed Dec Dec (said in our case they will do radio embolism. We will to do! And then .... only God knows t! But we hope and believe that my husband will live! Let and formations but in remission! Thank you

We got to the MEMORIAL clinic due to an urgent diagnosis. The successful outcome of the operation depended on promptness. The question was about days. The operation was carried out the next day. The most difficult operation according to the Whipple method. Conducted by professor, head of surgery. Low bow to him. The entire staff of the department works perfectly, promptly responds to any request. Separately, I want to say about the work of the translator Aida. High qualification, operational work at any time of the day, sincerity - only a small description of her qualities. Special thanks for providing meals to the patient and accompanying person. The cuisine is very tasty, in some positions it is better than homemade. I enjoyed the vegetarian cuisine. But there is a different one. A low bow to all the staff of the clinic. They saved my husband's life.
