Blemished facial skin and unbearable itching

This Russian lady approached iMER following 4 years of suffering from a serious dermatology problem which manifested itself with an unsightly blemished facial skin and unbearable itching.

She visited innumerous experts in Russia and received a number of diagnoses and methods of treatment . Unfortunately the treatments did not bring either the solution nor the relief needed to achieve a quality of life. She resorted to using hormone creams that maintained the symptoms but when stopped, her symptoms became acute.

Dr. Anna Benstein, the iMER medical advisor, addressed the case when she reviewed the medical material, made an initial assessment and referred the women to Dr. Slodovnik, a leading Dermatologist at “Hadassah“. Many tests were run which assisted them to arrive at the correct and exact diagnosis. The patient purchased the prescribed medications and returned to Russia.

Two months later she returned to Hadassah for a follow up visit and the success of her treatment was clearly evident on her happy and unblemished face.

Her letter appears below:

“Thank you to all of the iMER team and to the medical staff of Hadassah. The reason for my stay at the hospital was to find a correct diagnosis and treatment (for my skin problem).

I want to take this opportunity to say that the organization of my treatment began at the Ben Gurion airport where I was met by a driver arranged by iMER who brought me to the hotel that was also organized by the company logistics manager.

The same day I met the iMER team and received an itemized itinerary and price quote. On the scheduled date I was accompanied to my medical consultation with the doctor who was thorough and easy for me to understand ( with the help of the iMER translator), the doctor offered a diagnosis that was completely different from the diagnosis I was given in Russia.

The treatment prescribed for my condition was successful and I returned to Russia a totally satisfied patient.

Thank you to all of the iMER patients for helping to solve my medical mysteries and to the Hadassah staff for giving me a solution to my problem.
