Diagnosis: The patient underwent a women check-up procedure.

I have not seen such a level of service in Russia! All our family was examined, it took about 40 minutes! During this time, we examined everything that includes the standard package! After the examination we were taken to the dining room at the clinic and we were fed for free! After 3 working days, the results were ready! The doctor with the help of a translator explained everything to us, told, and showed! Great! Expensive! But it’s worth it!
