I’m inspired by a desire to help both a child, and a mother. I understand very well, what is it like for parents, and recognize their problems. That’s is why I always have an integrated approach: both with a child, and a mother. I pay large amount of attention to enlightening the parents: advise on rehabilitation, how to behave at home – there are many details, which one only discovers with experience.
A good doctor – is a competent, professional, attentive, understanding and compassionate human being. In our profession, where there is no pill to give the child and immediately solve the problem – this is probably all the more important. It’s a long complex work.
To find an approach to a child, intuitively, you need to be kind and compassionate. In spite of all the problems children might have, they are very sensitive to even passive ill-will and aggression.
When I see significant improvements in the child’s condition, I feel deeply satisfied and proud to have chosen this profession
