The patient was treated of acoustic neuroma

All our expectations were met. We needed a “second opinion” from real professionals - we got it. Many thanks to the support team of the site, thanks to Alexandra, who met us at the clinic. Very nice, cozy city. Once again, we were pleased with the trip and consultation with professors Bull and Sesterchen.
