Dear Dr. Danilevich, I am writing to say "THANK YOU" to you and your wonderful staff. My husband, John M., and I flew to St. Petersburg to join a Viking River Cruise on Tuesday, July 19. Unfortunately, on Thursday, July 21 John was admitted to your hospital with a serious case of pneumonia. From the moment we arrived, your staff took good care of us. John's case was assigned to Dr. Markovich (a wonderful man) and after a chest x-ray showed significant fluid in his lungs, he was admitted. We were immediately assigned to Anush who, with the help of Eugenie Fedorov, provided us absolutely excellent case management. They were both extremely helpful during the time we were there. The ladies at your reception desk were also so helpful, patiently answering my many questions and helping me with details through our ordeal. Our travel insurance company handled all the arrangements necessary to get us home to the US, with the help of a nurse/escort, and your staff was very willing to help coordinate all the details. We left for home on Sunday, July 24. Needless to say, we did not have the kind of vacation on which we had planned. However, thanks to the expertise, kindliness, and caring of your entire staff, what could have been a scary experience and a total disaster, was turned into an experience where we felt very safe and cared for. We have shared with our many friends the wonderful care we received in your hospital.
Thank you again, Bonnie M.
Dear Elena, We arrived home safely just before midnight on Thursday. The travel arrangements all went to plan and we got the necessary assistance at the airports to make our way through security and passport control. Susan's recovery is going well. She has seen her GP and a referral to the local fracture clinic is in progress. Thank you for the excellent medical care Susan received and all the support and advice provided during our stay. It was not possible to thank everyone personally so please let your colleagues know how grateful we are.
Kind regards and with our very best wishes, David and Susan H.
Hello Elena, I arrived to Santo Domingo yesterday at night... I have your email to the insurance company... Thanks a lot for all your help, your friendliness, courtesy and especially your high value of humanity. I will call to the insurance company today and keep you informed. Thanks, and remember you have two friends in Mexico and Dominican Republic.

Jeff and I want to thank you for all the care we were given at your hospital. We were very tired when we arrived home that Sunday evening and it has taken us quite a while to recover. Jeff has now been referred to a cardiologist. Please thank, on our behalf, all the doctors and nurses and the ladies who cleaned for all their help and kindness. Also please thank Elena for all her hard work in preparing for us to leave your beautiful city.
With grateful thanks to you all, Jeff and Helen D.
Dear Sirs: I was on a tour from a cruise when I suffered a loss of vision in my left eye. On relatively short notice, I received an ophthalmologic examination from Dr. Nikolay Zaitsev on 17 August of this year. He was assisted by another doctor who applied his knowledge to effectively interpret what the Dr. Zaitsev and I had said. I apologize for not retaining this second doctor's name. After the examination, as advised, we then terminated our trip and returned to the United States. As directed, I have since been seen by a local ophthalmologist who of course confirmed what Dr. Zaitsev had concluded. I am now recovering nicely. I am writing to thank doctors and the American Medical Clinic for providing such excellent treatment on such short notice. You are a credit to your profession.
Thank you again. Steven C.
Hello Dr Bushkin, Maria and all the wonderful nurses and doctors who took such wonderful care of me! Just another heartfelt thank you on the one year anniversary of my arrival at your clinic in St Petersburg. Not a day goes by that I don't think of my two weeks with all of you and if not for your care and medical expertise I might not be here. So, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope the summer is treating you all well, we have had an exceptionally warm summer and after our trip last year, my children claimed that they had no desire to travel with me again overseas. We are spending a great summer in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in our home state of Washington. I hope all of you are well and happy.
Fondly, Cynthia A.
Hello, I wanted to thank the clinic for my recent care there. On July 26th, while on a tour in St. Petersburg, I fractured my left foot due to a misstep. I was traveling as part of a river boat tour with the U.S.A. based tour company, Alumni Holidays, Inc., aboard the Ilya Repin. The ship's doctor contacted the American Medical Clinic. I was transported by a very caring ambulance staff to the clinic, where Dr. Viktor Vilensky, an orthopedist, saw me as soon as I arrived. He confirmed the fracture through an x-ray and quickly put my foot in a cast and provided me with crutches. He asked that I return for a follow-up visit on July 31st. During that visit, the possible need for surgery was discussed. Apparently, surgery could be useful or it might be satisfactory to let the foot heal through more conservative treatment (cast, crutches). Since I was scheduled to depart Russia for home on August 3rd, I chose to defer consideration of surgery until I returned to the U.S.A. Please let Dr. Vilensky know that the orthopedic foot specialist I visited yesterday in New York at the Hospital for Special Surgery, Dr. Matthew Roberts, indicated that he believed surgery is not necessary at this time. Dr. Roberts agreed with Dr. Vilensky's treatment… I’ m very grateful to the clinic and its staff, including the ambulance crew, the x-ray technician Ludmilla, and especially to Dr. Vilensky for the excellent care I received. I will always treasure my memories of my trip to Russia. My heartfelt thanks to the American Medical Clinic for helping to make my fracture only a minor part of these memories!
Болъшое Спасибо! Sincerely, Dr. Martha F. R.
Words cannot express how grateful I am for the way you helped my father during his illness.
Thank you so much, Kristofer W.
Dear Doctor Belenkiy, I am writing to let you know tat last week I saw Michael Smith, an orthopedic surgeon from St Thomas’s Hospital in London, who said that my fracture was healing very well and who expressed admiration for the quality of your surgery and care. I am most grateful.
With kind regards, Michael A.
Dear American Clinic Staff! We are afraid of making a mistake to call te name of a philosopher who said that the first half of the success of the medical treatment is the right attitude to the patient and the second part is the medicine itself. At your clinic it is successfully combined. Attention, warmth and at the same time professionalism at the highest level. Great thanks to all of you for bringing us back to normal life.
With great appreciation, Tamara and Genady L. Canada, Vancouver
