Priority areas in clinical practice:
- The most common complaints: upper respiratory tract diseases, ENT diseases, urinary tract infections: pyelonephritis, etc. (initial advice), children’s infectious diseases (chicken pox, scarlet fever, rubella, measles, etc.), intestinal and viral intestinal diseases.
- Specifics of work in pediatric unit: “When a child attends a medical appointment, I pay attention how he behaves himself. If he cries and is being negative, I try to examine him quickly, not to stretch the “fun” and not to torture. But also there are children that need to sit in office and find their feet a bit – in this case I give him a toy and start to examine by steps: to listen to – to let go, and so on. In each case there should be an individual approach.’, ‘Often I have to explain to parents aspects of treatment: what would happen if they did not give a specific medication to a child; what are their mistakes in self-medication when they act under old “proven” methods.’
- ‘I have foreign patients with translators, sometimes I even have to advise them by phone. It often happens to communicate with foreigners during doctor house calls – by overcoming a language barrier, including non-verbally with gestures, smile etc. While procedures and treatment we discuss only with a translator who gets the message across to patient’s mother.’
- ‘Doctor is a vocation. You get home from work, while in hospital, for instance, there’s still a child on fluid maintenance – you are constantly on phone, waiting for results. And until you know a child feels better you can do absolutely nothing.’
Hobbies, favorite movies, books:
- ‘I like to read detective stories – they are my way of escaping from reality. Also, I like to cook and to bead a little – I managed to embroider a small fragment of a picture. As they say, it's starting to hit the fan.’
- ‘The most important thing is to do all the vaccinations on time, as well as what is necessary and what is recommended. This is the primary prevention. Also, you need to walk with your child in the fresh air more. After all, a child from a city differs from the one from a village in that he does not see the fresh air at all. Make sure that a child eats enough fruits and his diet needs to include meat as a rule – this is necessary for growth and development.’
- On vaccination: ‘If amount of vaccinated children reached 95%, we would not have caused any epidemics. There would not be any receptive material to spread infections.’, ‘There is no need to be afraid of vaccination. An old DPT vaccine against whooping cough, diphtheria and tetanus functioned by embedding into an immune system and causing reaction. Modern Infanrix Hexa protects against the same diseases at the same time not causing any side effects. Television and the Internet make a lot of harm to people, often imposing fear of vaccinations, providing with false information.’, ‘Vaccination is necessary – only then you will be sure that your child has maximum protection from a disease. You cannot rely solely on medications – it is very simple to mistaken diphtheria with sore throat in the early stages, while time will be irretrievably lost.’
Advantages of MM 'Dobrobut':
- ‘Private clinic has a lot of advantages, such as equipment, laboratory examination etc. Here I have nothing to think, everything is thought out.’
