Clinic in Chuguexa

This morning, I met Manuel and Francisca at Chuguexa.  The room was packed with patients and some were waiting on the porch.  We prayed and started clinic with everyone.

We have always had this clinic once a month but it is continuing to grow.  Today, we had 31 patients arrive and we finished seeing 30 of them.  There were several new patients and almost 50 percent of them were diabetics. 

Next year, we will have two clinics a month and I am looking forward to that.  I do not like to feel like I have to rush through consults because I know that people are tiring from the wait. It will also be a better opportunity to offer dental cleanings.  We will see what happens.

This lady was very excited! She recently had surgery in ASELSI, which is a clinic near my house in Chichi.  She is enjoying her new glasses and vision. Thank you Carol, Dr. DeLeon and ASELSI!

I have already started seeing babies for the Feb. 2016 clinic for cleft lip and palates.  I will post photos when they return with their labs in early January.
