Pleasant Basic Medical Check-Up

     " The most pleasant place to have yourself undergo medical check-up." I confirmed that again yesterday as  I accompanied my cousin Jesmon today for his medical check-up at Davao Doctors Hospital. Since health costs cheaper here in the country, we wanted him to take advantage of it while he is here and get the best health service in the city.
         Today, I was not a clinical instructor for students on duty in this hospital. I was a mere patient's significant other or SO. I have no idea how the whole process will start so I went to Ma'am Jeck as soon as I saw her on the lobby. She's the one incharge of admitting patients and making sure that there are available rooms for them.
         I knew she didnt' know my name but she recognized me. She was kind enough to take me to Ma'am Osang, the one incharge of this check-up.  She was kind enough to accompany us from cashier, then laboratory than to Ultrasound area and Cardiac Diagnostic Center. She went with us until we were done.
         Everyone was really nice to us, her the most. This made me and my cousin impressed of the hospitals accommodation to patients. This, I believe, is not the same with other hospitals, so I heard.We could have done it on our own but she did not let us. And the in-charge of the different departments we went was kind also to us, considering they have a lot of patients as well.
          It is in the people that comprises the institution that  makes the whole health care different. Quality healthcare means personal touch with the patients. I have kept bragging that today. And until we were done with the last test, Ma'am Osang was with us.
          Yes,I admit that the costs here are higher than the rest but I believe that patients come back because  the nurses know how make them comfortable.

         I can only hope for good results tomorrow.
