Cancer survey: A review from a patient from Bucharest.

cancer survey for patient from RomaniaIn 2010, this Romanian patient was referred by a team of Swiss doctors for an oncology consultation at the “Hadassah” University Hospital to propose a medical plan for treatment of liver metastasis.

Mrs.Parkuar had no knowledge of either the Israeli language nor customs but the Hadassah reputation convinced her to put her life in the hands of the iMER company and have them organize the oncology evaluation. What awaited this Bucharest resident in Jerusalem surpassed all of her expectations.

On this page we publish a testimonial review of Mrs. Parkuar translated into English:

“With the help of the doctors, who really care about their patient’s health, and with the help of iMER, I arrived to Jerusalem to the “Hadassah” Hospital , for cancer examination (liver metastasis). I was really worried because I don’t speak any English and came alone. In the airport an iMER representative was waiting for me, and he took care of everything: customs duties, the luggage and safe transportation to the hotel.

medical plan for treatment of liver metastasisDuring the whole examination period I was assisted by the Romanian translator. Furthermore, he helped me with a currency exchange and gave me advise about a place to have a dinner- basically, I used to eat fruits and salads. I also had an opportunity to communicate with Romania from the iMer office, and I was supplied with a mobile phone for the calls inside of Israel.

I was pleased with the professionalism of the doctors and the professors whom I met with, as well as the modern equipment. For the first time in my life I was examined by positron-emission tomography, when the whole body is scanned. I was diagnosed on the basis of accurate and complete examination, and had been prescribed medications that I take now.

I think I’m very lucky, and thank God for everything I got here!”
