” My consultation clinic was founded out of faith and a desire to provide quality, special and uncompromising medical services. The clinic is a place where professionalism and humanity meet and enable me to provide high quality medicine.
I believe that the sick child is at the center of action.
The basis for a good medical service is professional medical knowledge and extensive experience, as there is no substitute for years of medical learning and practice.
I believe that good interpersonal communication, the ability to explain, guide questions, and support the patient and his family is the real key to success and recovery.
My clinic is a place where the patient of every age (infant, child, adolescent, young adult) and his family find a pleasant environment, friendly and appropriate to the special needs of each patient.
I believe that a smile, a good word, and an optimistic attitude as a way of life is the key to dealing with situations of crisis and anxiety.
