The patient was treated of lupus erythematosus

We arrived in advance with a child from another city, the first minus that we have to wait, because Fourteen patients were enrolled for 14 hours. I think because of this, the doctor was in a hurry with the techniques, didn’t even look at me, listened to my problem through an interpreter, expressed her point of view (I had doubts between allergies and systemic lupus erythematosus), said that most likely it was an allergy you can still be tested for lupus, my apparently was not enough, they are worth for my own reassurance $ 840
I’m sitting and don’t know, not necessarily, the translator took me away from the office, so I went out for 6 minutes, took my reception and that's it !!! I donated $ 70 and left without understanding anything, and I knew all this in Russia, but no one gave me any specifics. In general, I am not happy with such a reception, the only translator is good

The patient was treated of autism

It was not what we expected. We wanted to either confirm or deny the diagnosis. In the end, we did not get anything. Due to age, while the coordinating physician could have warned that in Korea such diagnoses are made from two years, we could postpone the trip. The clinic did not like the fact that she was not such a nursery. Severance would have been better, but they refused us, apparently because of a small age. Therefore, we went to Kvims, nevertheless, it turned out to be not quite the right direction, that is, pediatrics is not his direction.

The patient underwent check-up

I liked everything, expected something supernatural for such money, but alas. We in Russia have not bad hospitals, even better than Kvims. No offense. In Novosibirsk, in Irkutsk, we have doctors and travel routes. I did not understand until the end, why people go there and give such loot for examination. Operations? And here in Moscow and St. Petersburg are not doing badly. I do not know, my opinion is purely. And in Korea, the unreasonable price tag for narrow specialists and so on. And I didn’t understand anything in the package, it seems more like a conveyor belt. This is my first impression.
Maybe quims just an economy option? Although I traveled with a friend, he was at the top of the clinic and also saw nothing.
And so in general, the rules rolled.
And according to the test results I was told everything, too, as in Irkutsk I passed. It is certainly not very bad, I thought that I was much more serious. Ugh.

The patient was treated of diabetes type 2

All was good. The only thing that overshadowed, the first reception of the doctor. I had to sell more than two hours, although I arrived 15 minutes before the appointed time. Everything else was on top!
