Listen to Our Patients

Meet Mark, father of a lively 4-year old child treated for hypoplastic left heart syndrome within weeks after birth.

“Our first visit to Sheba lasted almost a month, and it was very stressful,” says Mark. “Yet I remember very well the compassion and attention we received… Our designated medical coordinator was with us constantly, explaining and helping. For three years, we’ve been returning for treatment; now, when we come, we feel at home. The Sheba team is our family now, and it’s the best medical care you can get.”
