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!
