After getting a referral from the rudest doctor in the Philippines, located at Iloilo Doctor's Hospital, for some blood work the doctor did not think necessary, my wife and I are off to St. Paul's Hospital in Iloilo because the obnoxious physician evidently didn't think the staff at her own facility could handle the simple task of drawing blood. I had slightly elevated high cholesterol levels back in the States and haven't had any blood tests done in years. I experienced a kidney stone attack last February where I was taken to Great Saviour's Hospital in Iloilo. Three technicians and a doctor could not even draw blood from me after a total of five attempts. Needless to say, I wasn't thrilled about the prospect of multiple stabbings again. I don't mind the sight of blood as long as it's not mine.
Sunday arrives and my wife and I head out again on the pump boat from Jordan Wharf in Guimaras on our fourth straight day to Iloilo. Received a disturbing mammogram report the day before at Doctor's Hospital in Iloilo. The results stated the following: "SUSPICIOUS BILATERAL BREAST NODULES. ULTRASOUND SUGGESTED FOR FURTHER EVALUATION."
Left off yesterday relating a visit to my wife's new gynecologist, Dr. Ma. Sisa B. Fernandez, an extremely pleasant and competent doctor that my wife and I both liked. I also wrote about the other end of the spectrum, the rudest doctor in the Philippines, located at Doctor's Hospital in Iloilo. Dr. Fernandez had given my asawa a referral for a mammogram so off we went to find the Mammogram Department in the hospital.
It had been almost two years since my wife had a pap smear or mammogram. Received a recommendation for a female gynecologist, Dr. Ma. Sisa B. Fernandez, located just a short distance at the Soriano Building just a short distance from Doctor's Hospital in Iloilo. The Sainted Patient Wife is 46 now (I'm sure she would love me sharing all of this personal information, but she seldom reads what I post on this website so I should be safe from the wrath of her bolo.)
Left off yesterday's post as my wife and I waited for a gynecologist at St. Paul's Hospital in Iloilo. One-thirty passes by with still no sign of the doctor. My wife and I had been waiting since 10 am so she could have the doctor do an examination and pap smear test since it has been almost two years since my asawa has visited a gynecologist. We had been told the doctor would arrive at 11 am, noon or one pm, and then 1:30.
