A little disappointing (quick answers and little time for the patient) Немного разочаровывать ( быстрые ответы и мало времени для пациента)
Я попросил второе мнение о лечении рака простаты для моего отца. Консультация была предоставлена в письменной форме профессором, доктором мед. Себастьян Мельхиор. Он ответил на все мои первоначальные вопросы и те, которые я отправил после его первоначальных ответов за несколько дней. Это помогло нам лучше понять ситуацию и возможные варианты. Однако из-за того, что большинство ответов носили общий, довольно специфический характер, в конце концов, мы все еще не уверены, какое лечение лучше в нашем случае.
Я выбрал 2-е мнение из Германии. Медицинская команда была великолепна. Это был очень полезный опыт. Огромное спасибо. Этот сайт очень помог, и люди очень этичны и поддерживают.
I requested a second opinion for the treatment of prostate cancer for my dad. The cosultation was provided in written by Prof. Dr. med. Sebastian Melchior. He answered all my initial questions and the ones I've sent after his initial answers in meter of few days. This helped us in understanding better the situation and possible options. However due to the fact that most of the answers were of general rather specific nature, in the end we are still not sure what is the better treatment in our case.
