The patient was treated of ulcerative colitis

Everything is good and even healthy, only expensive. Everything is on the level, staff, doctors, service, and so on. Of the proposed chambers was 500 bucks a day. Procedures are also not cheap, but everything is qualitative and operational, people know what to do and how. Всё хорошо и даже здорово, только дорого. Всё на уровне, персонал, доктора, сервис, итд. Из предлагаемых палат была за 500 баксов сутки. Процедуры тоже не дешевые, но всё качественно и оперативно, люди знают что и как делать.
