DermatologistDiagnostic and treatment centre for children and adults of the Dobrobut medical network (st. S. Idzikowsky (M. Mishinа), 3, Kyiv)
Areas of professional development:
Priority areas in clinical practice:
“Most often I consult patients complaining for dermatitis, fungal infections of the skin and nails, allergies, allergic dermatitis.”
“More often all such problems are associated to immunity, which depends on nutrition, living environment and lifestyle.”
“My advice to all: never resort to self-medication. Because of self-medication the entire clinical picture is blurred and it becomes very difficult to diagnose the disease. Applying some medicine on skin rash, especially iodine, brilliant green or hormonal ointment does not allow viewing the disease. Your doctor needs to see the disease manifestations because 90% of the diagnosis is made on this ground.”
“You should consult dermatovenerologist if you cannot sleep because of itching or pain. It is even better to consult your doctor immediately when you have some concerns. No need to search for information on the Internet or ask pharmacists for advice. This can only aggravate the condition of the patient and diagnosis of the disease will be more difficult to make.”
Specifics of working with patients
“I use individual approach to every patient: some people need to open up, some need a listener while others prefer brief and clear answers to their questions. Seeing the patient’s preferences, I choose the right communication strategy. After all, every person is special. "
Dobrobut Medical Center strengths
“Everything is well organized here. The clinic is well maintained, there are no queues. But, first of all, the private Dobrobut" MC is the quality of service and patients know what they are paying for”.
“In the course of practice I face unexpected findings: for example diseases not complying with standard clinical picture but confirmed by the laboratory testing. A patient treated a simple infection but it proved to be herpes.”
“When I rest from work, I watch movies, mostly historical ones and those for relaxing.”
