Daughter Expresses Admiration for Sensitivity Shown Her 92-year-old Dad at Hadassah

"On Sunday, late at night, I arrived at the Emergency Room at Hadassah Hospital-Ein Kerem with my son and my 92-year-old father. A few hours earlier, my father fell at home and cut his right ear. Since it was my son's Bar Mitzvah and there was not too much bleeding, we waited a few hours at home.

We were seen by Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nikolaos Sagouros. He was very sensitive to my father and stitched his ear very professionally. He took all the time in order to do an excellent job, and even implanted a tiny piece of skin over the stitches. It is so good to find such patience, sensitivity, and high professionalism in one person. I must say that I could have understood it better if my 92-year-old was a beautiful young woman. When it comes to an old man such as my father, it should not be taken for granted. The results, by the way, are excellent. You cannot notice that the ear was either cut or stitched.

You are fortunate to have such a resident doctor in your hospital."--Dr. AR
