Shlomit and Benny have recognized the huge challenge in the diagnostic process of autoimmune diseases, a process that today, on average, can take at least four different doctors and more than four years to make a definite diagnosis. These patients are enduring a frustrating journey through the medical system, in addition to, incurring huge costs to the healthcare system.
