The patient was treated of vitiligo

Were examined in a Samsung clinic with a diagnosis of vitiligo, which our local doctors set for us. The treatment was not required because the doctors of the Samsung clinic did not find any vitiligo in the child. The clinic provided us with a free translator who accompanied us everywhere. The staff is very polite and attentive.

Many thanks to the staff of Bookimed! Special thanks to our honey coordinator Maxim Voloshin who helped us when choosing a clinic and always stayed in touch.

The patient was treated of coxarthrosis

I express my sincere gratitude to Katerina Bonko for her high professionalism and kindness in organizing counseling and treatment abroad. All services were provided on time, each stage of work was thought out, several times stipulated, I received instructions that it was easy and simple to follow in a country with a foreign language. In time, I was met by a translator, Elena Kim, a high professional in her field, led to a doctor, who confirmed the diagnosis of Moscow professors. I would like to receive advice from the doctor regarding alternative methods of treatment, but the verdict is unequivocal, the need for surgery, which is offered by Moscow doctors. Once again, I thank Dr. Catherine Bonko for the assistance rendered to me, and I wish her every success in this field.
