What's Happening

My dad was recently hospitalized because of his ailing knees and fever for two weeks. He underwent a lot of laboratory tests to rule out some of possible causes of the symptoms. He went through a CT Scan testing, ECG and blood chemistry test but all resulted normal. Until now, we are still clue less of his sickness since findings are all negative. We thought that he would need to use ossur knee braces because he was not able to walk for a couple of days since his hospitalization but now at least he’s getting better. I was thinking if doctors on that hospital really know what he’s doing because he’s been there for a week already and still not able to diagnose his condition. I would vow I will not bring anymore patients to that hospital.

My 1st APE

I had my annual physical examinations last month to comply with our company’s policy. Since it’s quite a big company with thousands of employees, the APE appointments were scheduled by batch and on various clinics. I chose Healthway located at EDSA Shangri-la because it’s accessible for me and the facilities and services is fine. Nurses had their own Howard-Medical.com medical cart to attend to some patients. This minimizes waiting time for us. I spent just an hour to complete my APE because of their prompt service.
