“At my practice, I see patients from newborn age with neurological problems in addition to general infant and pediatric problems. After an initial examination, if necessary, I recommend development, further examinations and care. I also place great importance on a thorough discussion and planning of further actions in cooperation with the parents, and in the case of older children, with the child as well. If the child’s complaints prove to be of non-organic origin, the multidisciplinary approach provided by the Panoráma Polyclinic, the exploration of family and social relationships, especially the mother-child relationship, is crucial. As a mother myself, I think I feel close to the problems and uncertainties of new parents. I try to participate both as a doctor and as a mother and to create a supportive environment in my practices.”
