I met the executives and doctors of Medgate Philippines last week in their office in Makati City. I learned about certain instances where you can call a doctor while in the car, in public transportation (like bus or taxi), at home or in the office. This means you can save more time, 24/7.
I find it beneficial for everybody because you don't need to go to the hospital or your physician’s clinic to get medical advice or prescription.
You can call wherever you are, even overseas or simply taking care of or supervising your loved ones. They even do 3-way calls and video calls! And the good thing is that doctorscan speak Tagalog and other Filipino dialects. So, if you’re shy or afraid to see a doctor personally because of language difference, this can break that barrier.
