To Ilya Vladimirovich Kozlov, an otorhinolaryngologist of the highest category, a laser surgeon, a doctor from God and just a good person, I express my sincere admiration for his professionalism, determination and confidence in a critical situation, as well as incredible calmness and sensitivity to the patient's condition. Surgery was highly recommended to me three years earlier, but, as often happens, I postponed for various reasons until I brought the situation to an extremely difficult and dangerous one, fraught with irreversible consequences. Ilya Vladimirovich made a quick and, in fact, the only correct decision and prepared all the necessary conditions for its implementation in one day. The operation was long and difficult, but for me it was only a moment, and now, after just a few days, my life has received a completely different quality, which I could not have dreamed of for many years. Thank you, Ilya Vladimirovich!
