Dr n. med. Bożena Marek-Michalska
Welcome to the website of my Paediatric Clinic, often called by my patients ‘Dr Michalska’s Clinic’. It has been operating since 1998 as a non-public health centre, however, I have been working as an independent paediatrician since 1992. Prior to that I worked at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in Hospital Clinic in Zabrze.
Thanks to a twelve-year-practice at such a demanding ward I gained a lot of expertise and extremely valuable experience how to react in all kinds of difficult situations. It was a period of extensive practical and scientific work and boosting my professional development. I had an opportunity to watch the work of wonderful doctors, academic teachers and professors. It was the time of hard work in hospital, surgery and emergency medical services. Due to the fact that I often had to be on duty on my own and I saved seriously ill children’s lives, I learnt how to make quick and right decisions.
The contacts with parents of the children under my care had a great impact on me and on my present work. I know how deeply worried and frightened these parents can be and I do realise how many dangers can potentially threaten the health and lives of our children. That is why my major concern is the child’s safety at home, in a nursery, kindergarten or school. What is most important when being with kids is constant care, attention and observant alertness. I decided that the main objective of my work would be continuous medical care and an immediate aid in emergency cases. I am trying to have a constant personal, phone or mail contact with my little patients’ parents; I also spend a lot of time learning and improving my professional qualifications. All these activities aim at the mission of well-being of the children I take care of.
