A woman with a malignant melanoma who was treated at the Hadassah Medical Center wrote to say that her Hadassah surgeon cared for her "with endless devotion."
"Dr. Sharon Merims and Dr. Michal Lotem from the Oncology Department sent me to Dr. Bilal Alian in the Department of Surgery in Mt. Scopus to remove a malignant melanoma I had. Dr. Alian was above and beyond my expectations. He operated on me very professionally and cared for me with endless devotion, caring for me and my family. In addition to regular doctors rounds he called to ask how I was feeling and to tell me how the surgery was.
The nurses in the surgery department in Mt. Scopus are a very rare species. I do not want to mention names because each one of them was wonderful. I was asked many times how I felt, if I needed anything, if I was in pain etc. They were always so patient, nice, and outgoing. They gave the patients the feeling that they were the only people they cared for.
Whenever my husband was there he was asked if he wanted to eat something. Since I am tall, they searched and found an especially long bed for me. These are only two examples of how great they were, to me, and to all the other patients in the department.
Hadassah can be proud for having such extraordinary team of doctors and nurses."
